CFC Dismisses Protest of SBA Decision Not to Reopen Size Determination

August 2, 2011

In Outdoor Venture Corp. v. U.S., the Court of Federal Claims dismissed the protest of an awardee of a small business set-aside contract that had failed to file a timely appeal of an adverse size determination to SBA’s Office of Hearings and Appeals. The CFC held that the decision to reopen a size determination is within the SBA’s “sole discretion, and because there are no guidelines for SBA to follow, the [CFC] lacks jurisdiction to review SBA's decision."
