NOTICE FOR FILING AGENCY PROTESTS
United States Coast Guard Ombudsman Program


It is the policy of the United States Coast Guard (USCG) to issue solicitations and make contract awards in a fair and timely manner. The Ombudsman Program for Agency Protests (OPAP) was established to investigate agency protest issues and resolve them without expensive and time-consuming litigation. OPAP is an independent reviewing authority that is empowered to grant a prevailing protester essentially the same relief as the Government Accountability Office (GAO).


Interested parties are encouraged to seek resolution of their concerns within the USCG as an Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) forum rather than filing a protest with the GAO or some external forum. Interested parties may seek resolution of their concerns informally or opt to file a formal agency protest with the Contracting Officer or Ombudsman.


Informal Forum with the Ombudsman. Interested parties who believe a specific USCG procurement is unfair or otherwise defective should first direct their concerns to the applicable Contracting Officer. If the Contracting Officer is unable to satisfy their concerns, interested parties are encouraged to contact the USCG Ombudsman for Agency Protests. Under this informal process the agency is not required to suspend contract award performance. Use of an informal forum does not suspend any time requirement for filing a protest with the agency or other forum. In order to ensure a timely response, interested parties should provide the following information to the Ombudsman: solicitation/contract number, contracting office, Contracting Officer, and solicitation closing date (if applicable).


Formal Agency Protest with the Ombudsman. Prior to submitting a formal agency protest, protesters must first use their best efforts to resolve their concerns with the Contracting Officer through open and frank discussions. If the protester's concerns are unresolved, an Independent Review is available by the Ombudsman. The protester may file a formal agency protest to either the Contracting Officer or as an alternative to that, the Ombudsman under the OPAP program. Contract award or performance will be suspended during the protest period unless contract award or performance is justified, in writing, for urgent and compelling reasons or is determined in writing to be in the best interest of the Government. The agency's goal is to resolve protests in less than 35 calendar days from the date of filing. Protests shall include the information set forth in FAR 33.103(d) (2). If the protester fails to submit the required information, resolution of the protest may be delayed or the protest may be dismissed. To be timely protests must be filed within the period specified in FAR 33.103(e). Formal protests filed under the OPAP program should be submitted electronically to OPAP@uscg.mil and the Contracting Officer or by hand delivery to the Contracting Officer.


Election of Forum. After an interested party protests USCG procurement to the Contracting Officer or the Ombudsman, and while the protest is pending, the protester agrees not to file a protest with the GAO or other external forum. If the protest is filed with an external forum, the agency protest will be dismissed.


The Ombudsman Hotline telephone number is 202.372.3695.

PART 6 - IDIQ Award Evaluation Criteria Addenda to 52.212-2, Evaluation - Commercial Items (Oct 2014)


(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. Selection under this solicitation shall be based on the responsible offeror whose proposal represents in the Government's estimation, provides the greatest overall benefit in response to the requirement resulting in the best value for the Government. The following factors shall be used to evaluate offers:


Technical Business/Cost
Technical Capability
1. Specifications
2. Warranty
3. Logistics Plan Past Performance
Price


Basis of Award:
In performing the best value, all non-cost evaluation factors, when combined, are significantly MORE IMPORTANT than cost/price. Technical Capability sub-factors are listed in descending order of importance: specifications, warranty, and logistics plan warranty. Technical Capability is significantly more important than Past Performance.


Factor 1: Technical Capability:
The Government will evaluate each offeror's technical capability to determine their capability to perform and their understanding of all the requirements outlined in "DSL Attachment 1 Speed Log Specifications". This will include the evaluation of the following:
Sub factor 1 - Speed Log Specifications


Offerors demonstrated ability to meet the specification requirements provided in "DSL Attachment 1 Speed Log Specifications". The Government will evaluate each offerors' demonstrated ability to meet the specification requirements provided in "DSL Attachment 1 Speed Log Specifications". The evaluation of this sub-factor will be based on the offeror's demonstrated capability to provide the required specifications. Any proposed product specifications that exceeds the minimum will be evaluated to determine the impact of the operational effectiveness and the benefit derived by the Government. Offerors are to provide a completed DSL Proposal Crosswalk 5. The Government will use the "DSL Attachment 1 Speed Log Specifications" and "DSL Attachment 5 Proposal Crosswalk" in the evaluation of the Offerors proposal to review the proposal for completeness and a check off of how the specifications were addressed to include details that demonstrate how the offeror's proposed products will meet the requirements of the specifications. Offerors failure to demonstrate how the specifications are met or failure to complete the proposal crosswalk could be considered an incomplete response to this request for proposal.


Sub factor 2 - Warranty Terms and Conditions


This sub factor will be evaluated on the offeror's proposed terms and conditions to include: duration of the warranties, the offeror's timeline and conditions for the commencement of warranty period. The offeror's proposed warranty terms will be evaluated on the timelines associated with obtaining replacement equipment, whether replacement or repair will be utilized for the affected equipment and the turnaround for the affected unit. The offeror's proposal will be evaluated on the mean time to repair, and how the Warranty terms and conditions support the USCG logistics system warehousing into account.

Sub factor 3 - Logistics plan


The quality of the offeror's proposed logistics plan will be evaluated on the overall approach to deliver, sustain, maximize component commonality and provide continuity of the proposed components up to the full vessel kit quantity over the five (5) year total ordering period plus the warranty duration for all items ordered.
The logistics plan evaluation will include a review of how software updates will be implemented, and how the system will continue to meet all of the minimum specifications and functions over the life of the contract. The evaluation will also include a review of how the offeror addresses what can be offered to minimize the system's logistical footprint as well as address scalability possibilities and maximal use of common components across the various configurations. This evaluation will also include the degree to which the offeror will provide Government rights to the manuals and other documentation provided as part of the system. The Government's objective is to obtain the right to use and supplement the information contained in this documentation. In addition, this evaluation review the offeror's proposed timelines associated with: notification of software updates, notification of product end of life and reparability, and how the offeror will provide replacement components that meet all minimum specifications (form, fit, power and functions) for the life of contract period.
Note: The Coast Guard has a stringent configuration control process that necessitates, at minimum, 12 months for approval/inclusion of any replacement parts.


Factor 2: Past Performance:


The Government will evaluate the offeror's recent and relevant past performance. The Government will evaluate an offeror's past performance based on any of the following: (1) past performance questionnaires/surveys, (2) the Past Performance Information Retrieval System (PPIRS), and/or any other available source. The offeror's past performance will be evaluated based on the degree to which current and previous contract efforts indicate the probability of the offeror successfully fulfilling the contractual requirements. Past performance information received from the offeror shall be within the past 3 years or ongoing and be relevant to this requirement (i.e., the same or similar requirement.) Current performance will have a greater impact in the evaluation than less recent performance. Although the Government will consider information obtained from other sources, the burden of providing thorough and complete past performance information rests with the offeror. An offeror's lack of relevant past performance will not be evaluated favorably or unfavorably and will be rated as "neutral".


Factor 3: Price:


The Government will evaluate price based on total evaluated price and will be based on a formula that utilizes the projected number of installations (kits and spares) taking in to consideration the FY and multiplied by the associated step ladder pricing proposed. 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 offeror'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.
