Notice to vendors – This Opportunity is a Multiple Award opportunity based on best per line item pricing.
Vendors will submit pricing only on line items that they want to be considered for award. All line items that the vendor will not provide must include a description indicating that they are not providing pricing (i.e., n/a, not providing line item, no pricing, no bid). Additionally, all line items that will not be provided must use the “Included in line item” feature to allow a no bid on that line item. Please bid on the entire amount requested in the line item description.
As defined in the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 2.101, the terms “offer” and “offeror” refer to a response to a solicitation that, if accepted, would bind the submitter to perform the resultant contract. The terms “bid” and “bidder” refer to an offer submitted in response to an Invitation for Bid (IFB). The term “proposal” refers to an offer submitted in response to a Request for Proposal (RFP). The terms “quotation,” “quote,” and “quoter” refer to a non-binding submission in response to a Request for Quotation (RFQ) which is not an offer.
Unless the Buyer indicates otherwise within a particular line item description, each Seller shall include in its online Bid/Proposal/Quotation individual pricing for all required line items in order to be considered for award (i.e., Do not use the “Included in another line item” function when pricing each line item). If a line item cannot be separately priced, you must notify the buyer through the FedBid ‘Submit a Question’ feature regarding which line item(s) should be included in which other line item(s) and request reposting. Failure to comply with this term may result in the Bid/Proposal/Quotation being determined to be unacceptable.

Bid/Offer MUST be good for 60 calendar days after close of Buy, unless otherwise indicated.

Q&A -Please submit all questions by using the 'Submit a Question' button. This buy will then be reposted with Q&A based on the questions that come in (if applicable).

All Bids/Proposals/Quotations must conform to the listed specifications or the Statement of Work. If award criteria are based upon (b) price and other factors, the Contracting Officer shall clearly indicate the criteria to be applied elsewhere in this Buy.
In addition to providing pricing at www.FedBid.com for this solicitation, each Bidder/Offeror/Quoter must provide any required, NON-PRICING responses (e.g. technical proposal, representations and certifications, etc.) so that they are received no later than the closing date and time for this Buy.

Items/services that do not conform to descriptions and part numbers found in this Buy will be rejected at the time of delivery causing a return at the contractor's expense.
For all buys other than Exact Match Sellers MUST document what they are bidding for evaluation for award. Sellers must include, extended specs and/or manufacturer name and part numbers (if applicable). Failure to do this may result in non-consideration of the Bid/Proposal/Quotation.
