Protest:

CourtSmart Digital Systems, Inc. protests the issuance of an order to York Telecom Corporation under a request for quotations (RFQ) issued by the Social Security Administration (SSA) for a portable digital recording system under the Federal Supply Schedule (FSS).

Decision:

We sustain the protest

Decision Summary:

1. Issuance of order that included non-Federal Supply Schedule (FSS) item under a competition among FSS vendors was improper.

2. Awardee's quotation under a competition among Federal Supply Schedule vendors was unacceptable where it was not compliant with the solicitation provision requiring compliance with section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, which requires electronic and information technology that will allow individuals with disabilities the same access as persons who are not individuals with disabilities.

3. In a competition among Federal Supply Schedule vendors, quotations were not evaluated on an equitable basis with respect to an experience requirement.

4. Agency's determination that protester's software for portable digital recording system proposed in a competition under the Federal Supply Schedule (FSS) was unacceptable is not supported by the record.
