Stay of FSS Procurement Requires Prompt Action

Nov.09.2005

In Systems Plus, Inc. v. U.S. (Oct. 27, 2005, http://www.uscfc.uscourts.gov/Opinions/Bruggink/05/BRUGGINK.SystemsPlus.pdf), the Court of Federal Claims held that a Federal Supply Schedule procurement for a blanket purchase agreement conducted as a commercial item buy under FAR part 12, rather than part 15, does not require that the agency provide a debriefing to a disappointed bidder. As a result, the automatic statutory stay upon a GAO protest runs only for 10 days from contract award and not also for 5 days from any discretionary debriefing in such situations.
