The intent is to award a firm fixed-price commercial contract resulting from this solicitation to the responsible offeror whose offer conforming to the solicitation will be the most advantageous to the Government, price and other factors considered. Basis for award will be "BEST VALUE", based on the evaluation criteria listed below. These three (3) factors are required and must be included with your submission because it will be used to evaluate offers:

1.) Company Past Performance: The company must demonstrate its record of sucessful performance in past contracts and/or jobs. Each offeror will be evaluated on its performance under existing and prior contracts/jobs. Provide brief description of three (3) similar projects and three (3) references.

2.) Technical: The offeror's proposal must completely meet the technical requirements listed in the Statement of Work.

3.) Cost/Price: The Offeror agrees to hold the prices firm in its offer for 90 calendar days from the date specified for receipt of the offers. The offeror's price proposal must be based on the offeror's technical proposal and the Government's statement of work. The Price Schedule shall be completed by the offeror in accordance with the following: (1) All prices contained in the price schedule must reflect an all inclusive rate. Price is not assigned an adjectival rating or scored. It will be evaluated to determine whether it is reasonable and if the quotation reflects an understanding of the requirement.

Company past performance and technical, when combined, are considered approximately equal to cost or price. Quotations will be evaluated in accordance with the aforementioned factors. Any quotation that is unrealistic in terms of technical approach, schedule commitments and /or costs (high or low) will be deemed unacceptable. The quotations will be evaluated and a contract awarded under the Best Value Continuum approach. This will allow the Government to consider award to other than the lowest price offeror or other than the highest technically rated offeror who meets or exceeds the technical acceptability standards established in the factors referenced above.
