The contractor shall implement and maintain a Quality Control Plan (QCP) to ensure work performed conforms to the scope of work and meets the requirements under this PWS.

7.0 QUALITY ASSURANCE


7.1 The Government reserves the right to perform inspections and surveillance to evaluate the contractor's compliance to the contract terms and performance of the requirements in the PWS. The Government will make every effort to ensure that the surveillance methods described below are conducted in an objective, fair, and consistent manner.


7.1.1 Periodic Surveillance. This action occurs when the COR or other Government official observes a deficiency. Examples include evidence from accidents, incidents, or delays. Regardless of where in the line-of-duty the COR observes contractual procedures not being followed, he/she has an obligation to document and report the deficiency to the Contracting Officer.


7.1.2 Customer Complaint Surveillance. This action is instituted when the COR receives a complaint from a stakeholder (stakeholder organizations include the DACOWITS Director, Deputy Director, and Operations Officer) regarding contractor service. The COR will obtain the complaint in writing and then conduct an investigation to determine its validity. If the complaint is deemed valid, the COR will immediately notify the contracting officer for action.

7.2 Contract Discrepancy Report (CDR). In the event of unsatisfactory contractor performance, the COR or CO will issue a CDR that will explain the circumstances and findings concerning the incomplete or unsatisfactory service. The contractor shall acknowledge receipt of the CDR and respond in writing as to how he/she shall correct the unacceptable performance and avoid a recurrence. The Government will review the contractor's corrective action response to determine acceptability and will use any completed CDR as part of an overall evaluation of contractor performance when determining present or future contractual actions.



8.0 PERFORMANCE REQUIREMENTS SUMMARY


8.1 Purpose. The PRS lists performance objectives for the required services the Government will surveil. The absence of any contract requirement from the PRS shall not detract from its enforceability nor limit the rights or remedies of the Government under any other provision of the contract including the clauses entitled "Inspection of Services" or "Inspection" or "Default" in Section E and Section I of the contract.

Addendum 52.212-2 EVALUATION--COMMERCIAL ITEMS (OCT 2014)


The provision is changed as follows:


(a) 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, price and other factors considered. The following factors shall be used to evaluate offers:


1. Technical
2. Past Performance
3. Price


Technical Capability and Past Performance when combined are significantly more important than Price.


(b) Options. The Government will evaluate offers for award purposes by adding the total price for all options to the total price for the basic requirement. The Government may determine that an offer is unacceptable if the option prices are significantly unbalanced. Evaluation of options shall not obligate the Government to exercise the option(s).


(c) This RFQ is conducted under the guidelines of FAR Parts 12 and 13. Award will be based on a determination of best value to the Government, price and other factors considered. "Best Value" means the expected outcome of an acquisition that, in the Government's estimation, provides the greatest overall benefit in response to the requirement. Best value evaluation is, in and of itself, a subjective assessment by the Government of the proposed solution that provides the optimal results to the Government.


(d) This method does not use any aspects of FAR subpart 15.3. The use of FAR Part 12 and 13 procedures does not obligate the Government to determine a competitive range, conduct discussions with any contractors, solicit quotes or revisions thereto, or use any other source selection techniques associated with FAR subpart 15.3.


(e) Technical quotes will be reviewed


(1) Contract Requirements. Quotations will be evaluated on the quoter's ability to provide all of the contract requirements regarding the meeting space and break-out room, audio visual equipment and setup, sleeping room accommodations, food and beverage service, transportation service, and project management Quotations will be evaluated on the layout design, quality, and cleanliness of the facilities as reflected by the physical layout, decor, and atmosphere of meeting space including amenities to support the conference, such as free Wi-Fi in the conference space, upkeep of the facilities;


(2) Availability of Dates- Quotations will be evaluated on the ability of the quoter to provide the required services on the dates requested. Consideration will be given to quoters who can provide the required services on the preferred dates in order of preference (i.e., 1st choice dates; 2nd choice dates; and 3rd choice dates);


(3) Location. Quotations will be evaluated on the ability of the quoters to provide a facility located within seven (7) miles (south of the Potomac River) of the Mark Center with adequate on-site parking for participants and presenters.


(f) Past performance: The Government will evaluate past performance in terms of customer service on similar requirements, feedback from references on meeting room design/layout and quality/upkeep of the facilities and decor, and the availability of amenities and staff to support the conference. A quoter without a record of relevant past performance or for whom information on past performance is not available will not be evaluated favorably or unfavorably on past performance.


(g) Award will be made to the quote that provides the best value.


(h) A written notice of award or acceptance of an offer, mailed or otherwise furnished to the successful offeror within the time for acceptance specified in the offer, shall result in a binding contract without further action by either party. Before the offer's specified expiration time, the Government may accept an offer (or part of an offer), whether or not there are negotiations after its receipt, unless a written notice of withdrawal is received before award.

(i) Taxes are considered delinquent if both of the following criteria apply:


(A) The tax liability is finally determined. The liability is finally determined if it has been assessed. A liability is not finally determined if there is a pending administrative or judicial challenge. In the case of a judicial challenge to the liability, the liability is not finally determined until all judicial appeal rights have been exhausted.


(B) The taxpayer is delinquent in making payment. A taxpayer is delinquent if the taxpayer has failed to pay the tax liability when full payment was due and required. A taxpayer is not delinquent in cases where enforced collection action is precluded.


(ii) Examples.


(A) The taxpayer has received a statutory notice of deficiency, under I.R.C. ¡×6212, which entitles the taxpayer to seek Tax Court review of a proposed tax deficiency. This is not a delinquent tax because it is not a final tax liability. Should the taxpayer seek Tax Court review, this will not be a final tax liability until the taxpayer has exercised all judicial appear rights.

In the course of the hearing, the taxpayer is entitled to contest the underlying tax liability because the taxpayer has had no prior opportunity to contest the liability. This is not a delinquent tax because it is not a final tax liability. Should the taxpayer seek tax court review, this will not be a final tax liability until the taxpayer has exercised all judicial appeal rights.


(C) The taxpayer has entered into an installment agreement pursuant to I.R.C. ¡×6159. The taxpayer is making timely payments and is in full compliance with the agreement terms. The taxpayer is not delinquent because the taxpayer is not currently required to make full payment.


(D) The taxpayer has filed for bankruptcy protection. The taxpayer is not delinquent because enforced collection action is stayed under 11 U.S.C. ¡×362 (the Bankruptcy Code).
