A Document Control and ELN software must be separate modules from a single manufacturer.

A The software and its data must reside on a US Geological Survey server.

A Software must be installed on-site by the manufacturer representative.

Basis for Award

The award of this requirement shall be made using only the procedures found in FAR part 12 in conjunction with FAR part 13.5.

Award shall be made to the vendor whose proposal, conforming to this solicitation, is determined to be the most advantageous to the government, cost or price and the other non-cost or non-price factors listed above. In determining which proposal offers the greatest value or advantage to the government, non-price factors will be considered more important than price or costs. The degree of importance of price or cost as an evaluation factor will increase with the degree of equality in the technical merits of the proposal. Between acceptable proposals with a significant difference in technical merit, a determination will be made as to whether the additional technical merit or benefits reflected by a higher priced proposal warrants payment of the additional price or costs.

(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) 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 offerAs 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.

Single Award

Offers will be evaluated on the basis of total aggregate price for all items. Offerors are required to submit firm-fixed prices on each separately priced item or indicate that the item is "not separately priced" (NSP).

An offeror's failure to submit a price (or enter NSP) on all items will require rejection of the quote as nonresponsive.

Quotation Preparation

VendorAs quotation package shall consist of, but is not limited to: Form SF-18 Request for Quotation completed as necessary, acknowledgement of any amendments (if applicable), and any information requested in the evaluation factors section above (if applicable). Vendor shall provide their Dun & Bradstreet (DUNS) number. Failure to provide this may result in the rejection of the vendorAs quotation.

The vendor is cautioned to study the Evaluation Factors stated above along with their relative importance. Your quotation package shall address each of these factors since these are the standards against which your quotation will be evaluated. It is the vendorAs responsibility to include the appropriate documentation in its quotation package to allow a complete technical/price evaluation. Failure to submit the appropriate documentation may result in the rejection of the vendorAs quotation.

(X) The offeror shall submit a completed copy of the provision at FAR 52.212-3, Offeror Representations and Certifications - Commercial Items (JAN 2017), with its quote. An offeror shall complete only paragraph (b) of this provision if the offeror has completed the annual representations and certifications electronically at https://www.sam.gov If an offeror has not completed the annual representations and certifications electronically at SAM, the offeror shall complete only paragraphs (c) through (q) of this provision.

GS1305 Contractor Performance Assessment Reporting System (CPARS)

(a) FAR 42.1502 directs all Federal agencies to collect past performance information on contracts. The Department of the Interior (DOI) has implemented the Contractor Performance Assessment Reporting System (CPARS) to comply with this regulation. One or more past performance evaluations will be conducted in order to record your contract performance as required by FAR 42.15.

(b) The past performance evaluation process is a totally paperless process using CPARS. CPARS is a web-based system that allows for electronic processing of the performance evaluation report. Once the report is processed, it is available in the Past Performance Information Retrieval System (PPIRS) for Government use in evaluating past performance as part of a source selection action.

(c) We request that you furnish the Contracting Officer with the name, position title, phone number, and email address for each person designated to have access to your firm's past performance evaluation(s) for the contract no later than 30 days after award. Each person granted access will have the ability to provide comments in the Contractor portion of the report and state whether or not the Contractor agrees with the evaluation, before returning the report to the Assessing Official. The report information must be protected as source selection sensitive information not releasable to the public.

(d) When your Contractor Representative(s) (Past Performance Points of Contact) are registered in CPARS, they will receive an automatically-generated email with detailed login instructions. Further details, systems requirements, and training information for CPARS is available at http://www.cpars.csd.disa.mil/. The CPARS User Manual, registration for On Line Training for Contractor Representatives, and a practice application may be found at this site.

(e) Within 60 days after the end of a performance period, the Contracting Officer will complete an interim or final past performance evaluation and the report will be accessible at http://www.cpars.csd.disa.mil/. Contractor Representatives may then provide comments in response to the evaluation, or return the evaluation without comment. Comments are limited to the space provided in Block 22. Your comments should focus on objective facts in the Assessing Official's narrative and should provide your views on the causes and ramifications of the assessed performance. In addition to the ratings and supporting narratives, blocks 1 - 17 should be reviewed for accuracy, as these include key fields that will be used by the Government to identify your firm in future source selection actions. If you elect not to provide comments, please acknowledge receipt of the evaluation by indicating "No comment" in Block 22, and then signing and dating Block 23 of the form. Without a statement in Block 22, you will be unable to sign and submit the evaluation back to the Government. If you do not sign and submit the CPAR within 30 days, it will automatically be returned to the Government and will be annotated: "The report was delivered/received by the contractor on (date). The contractor neither signed nor offered comment in response to this assessment." Your response is due within 30 calendar days after receipt of the CPAR.

(f) The following guidelines apply concerning your use of the past performance evaluation:

(1) Protect the evaluation as "source selection information." After review, transmit the evaluation by completing and submitting the form through CPARS. If for some reason you are unable to view and/or submit the form through CPARS, contact the Contracting Officer for instructions.

(2) Strictly control access to the evaluation within your organization. Ensure the evaluation is never released to persons or entities outside of your control.

(3) Prohibit the use of or reference to evaluation data for advertising, promotional material, preaward surveys, responsibility determinations, production readiness reviews, or other similar purposes.

(g) If you wish to discuss a past performance evaluation, you should request a meeting in writing to the Contracting Officer no later than seven days following your receipt of the evaluation. The meeting will be held in person or via telephone or other means during your 30-day review period.

(h) A copy of the completed past performance evaluation will be available in CPARS for your viewing and for Government use supporting source selection actions after it has been finalized.

(End of clause)
