(End of Clause)

Solicitation #12905B20Q1007848 is issued as a RFQ. The solicitation document, with the attached clauses and provisions, is issued in accordance with the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) and will be incorporated in the awarded firm-fixed price purchase order. Interested vendors should reference the solicitation documents for all terms and conditions. All interested parties are responsible for monitoring this website to ensure they have the most current information (i.e. Amendments) for the solicitation. No paper solicitation will be available.

Question Submission: Interested Offerers must submit any questions concerning the solicitation at the earliest time possible to enable the Buyer to respond.

Address ALL questions in WRITING to the issuing office via email to lam.pham@usda.gov. No telephone inquiries will be accepted.

The offeror must comply with the following commercial item terms and conditions:

FAR 52.252-1, Solicitation. Provisions Incorporated by Reference; FAR 52.212-1, Instructions to Offerors; 52.212-3, Offeror Representations and Certifications; FAR 52.211-6, Brand name or Equal.

1. Read the solicitation in its entirety (including the Specifications documents).

2. The quote should include any other documentation deemed necessary such as references.

3. Quotes must be submitted via email by 03:00 PM Pacific Time, Friday, July 10, 2020, via email to lam.pham@usda.gov

4. This is a Best Value Acquisition. Award of the contract resulting from this solicitation will be made to the responsible offeror whose proposal offers the "best value" to the Government, which may not necessarily be the quote offering the lowest price nor the highest technical advantage. In the event two or more offerors within the competitive range are considered essentially equal in terms of technical competence, the Government reserves the right to award to the offeror with the lowest realistic price. FAR 15.101-2

5. The Government may elect to conduct discussions with offerors whose quotes are technically acceptable (or which may be expected to be made acceptable by moderate modification) and fall within the competitive price range. The Government reserves the right, however, to award a contract based on initial offers without conducting discussions. Therefore, each quote should be submitted in the most favorable terms, from a price and technical standpoint. See FAR 9.104-1.

6. USDA-ARS is Tax Exempt. Tax Exemption Certificate: 720564834F.

7. GSA discounts: The USDA is requesting that schedule contractors extend additional discounts to the USDA when making responses to this solicitation. GSA contract schedule holders are able to offer one-time discounts from established Schedule contracts. Schedule contractors can give one buying member a discount without passing the discount on to the entire federal government. This provision allows the contractor to offer and the government to avail itself of spot pricing in the commercial market.

8. Contractor must be registered at SAM.gov (System for Award Management) at https://www.sam.gov/portal/public/SAM/ prior to quote submission.

The Government will award a contract resulting from this solicitation to the responsible offeror whose offer conforming to the solicitation will be most advantageous to the Government.
