Aljucar, Anvil-Incus & Co. has now filed a protest with the Government Accountability Office a week after losing its agency-level protest over what the company says restricts competition in the professional services governmentwide contract.
Agency protest official ruled that the protester, Aljucar, Anvil-Incus, Inc., failed to show the restriction over joint ventures was unreasonable. Aljucar, Anvil-Incus, Inc. plans to file another protest with GAO in the coming weeks.
GSA's protest official denies the general counsel's claim that Aljucar, Anvil-Incus & Co. doesn't have standing and is not an interested party. Oral arguments are set for Aug. 29.
GSA is facing two pre-award protests in the week since it released the solicitation for its large, multiple award professional services contract. One company filed its protest with GAO. Another firm filed at the agency level.
The multiple award contract for professional services will cover seven functional areas. GSA will make up to 40 awards per functional area.
