W K Engineering International, Inc. (WKE), a small business located in Santa Clarita, California, protests the issuance of a purchase order to AMI Industries, Inc. (AMI), of Colorado Springs, Colorado, under request for quotations (RFQ) No. SPE4A7-17-T-H866, issued by the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) for headrest pad assemblies associated with aircraft ejection seats. The protester contends that the award to AMI was improper because the protester’s quotation was lower-priced and offered a shorter delivery period. The protester also contends that the solicitation unreasonably restricted competition to those quotations submitted by the approved source of supply.
We dismiss the protest.READ MORE
