Matter of REEP, Inc.

B-290,665 (2002)

  • Written by Liz Nakamura, JD

Facts

Worldwide Language Resources (Worldwide) provided language training services for the 5th Special Forces Group (5th SFG), a subset of the Department of the Army (Army) (defendant), under a Federal Supply Schedule (FSS) one-year delivery order. Shortly before the one-year delivery order period ended, the Army issued a Request for Quotations (RFQ) for language training services. However, before completing the RFQ process, the Army issued two FSS delivery orders for language training services to Worldwide. The Army did not request quotations from other FSS contractors with language training contracts, like REEP, before issuing the delivery orders to Worldwide. REEP protested the Army’s issuance of the delivery orders to Worldwide, arguing that the delivery order awards were improper because (1) the Army awarded the orders to Worldwide without reviewing the prices of other available language training contractors, like REEP; and (2) REEP would provide a better value to the government because it could provide the same services at a lower price. The Army failed to provide any substantive counterarguments but conceded that (a) it knew there were other language training contractors, like REEP, who could fulfill the delivery orders; and (b) Worldwide did not provide any unique services.
