Court Reviews Decision to Stop Using SBA 8(a) Contract

September 2, 2010

U.S. (Aug. 3, 2010), the Court of Federal Claims determined that it has jurisdiction to consider the claims that the Air Force had improperly decided to remove a requirement for credit reports from the 8(a) Program and instead had procured the reports through a GSA schedule in order to obtain lower prices. The court explained that, for purposes of determining its bid protest jurisdiction, the definition of "procurement" is broad and encompasses the agency's initial process of determining its needs.
