Competitive Range Solutions, LLC (CRS), of O’Fallon, Illinois, protests the Department of Health and Human Services, National Institutes of Health (NIH)’s exclusion of the protester’s proposal from further consideration under request for proposals (RFP) No. NIHJT2016015, for information technology (IT) supplies and services. The protester argues that the agency’s exclusion of its proposal based on its failure to have sufficient capabilities in health-related missions amounted to a nonresponsibility determination that should have been referred to the Small Business Administration (SBA) under SBA’s certificate of competency (COC) procedures.
We sustain the protest.
