CFC Judge Sides with VA in Preference Dispute over FSS Buys

December 7, 2012

In Kingdomware Techs., Inc. v. U.S., Judge Firestone of the Court of Federal Claims ruled that the Veterans Benefits Act of 2006, which requires VA to determine whether it can reasonably set aside its acquisitions for Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Businesses or Veteran Owned Small Businesses, does not apply to purchases from the Federal Supply Schedule. Before this ruling, VA had continued to defy GAO, which had ruled the opposite in a number of protests, and the same issue is currently before at least one other CFC judge.
