ADDENDUM TO FAR Part 52.212-2 Evaluation – Commercial Items (OCT 2014)
(a) This solicitation will be evaluated under Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Part 13. The solicitation will be solicited as a small business set aside through Contract Opportunities. 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. Upon closing, the offers will be evaluated using Lowest Price Technically Acceptable (LPTA) evaluation criteria. The Government reserves the right to award one and up to three contract awards. The following factors shall be used to evaluate offers:
Factor 1- Technical Performance:
The contractor shall be responsible for ensuring their quote fully outlines the capability to adhere to the delivery deadline, quantities required, and specifications listed in the Statement of Work (SOW). Technical performance shall be found to be either acceptable or unacceptable based on the answers to the following questions:
The Government will determine the vendor to be Technically Acceptable only if all answers to the above questions (1 & 2) are “Yes”. The final determination of whether an “or equal” will meet the needs of the Government lies with the Government. If the contractor does not submit a product data sheet as required then the answer will automatically be “No.”
Factor 2 – Pricing:
The government will evaluate all technically acceptable offerors’ prices.
In terms of “price reasonableness”, the Government will focus on whether the price is too high or too low to be considered fair and reasonable. In terms of “completeness”, the Government will focus on whether the price appears to cover all of the work identified in the SOW. In terms of “balance”, the Government will focus on whether pricing is consistent with historical contract information and market research.
Pricing will not be scored or rated and will not be considered unless the quotes technically acceptability in factor 1 are graded as acceptable. Pricing shall include all aspects of the office furniture to include product, shipping with lift gate capabilities, installation, design, tools, equipment, supervision, etc.
Factor 3 – Past Performance:
The government will only evaluate past performance in the case of a tie of an exactly same proposed requirement and exactly same price provided.

ii. Contract Number
iii. Description of Services
iv. Contract Value
v. Period of Performance
vi. Place of Performance
vii. Contract Type
viii. Current POC with current email address and phone number
Past performance is a measure of the degree to which an Offeror, as an organization, has in the past 3 years satisfied its customers, and efficiently and effectively managed their contracts, on projects of similar scope and magnitude. Past performance history shall be used to gauge the level of risk. An Offeror’s past performance will be assessed as very relevant, relevant, somewhat relevant, or not relevant. Very relevant shall mean that present or past performance effort involved essentially the same scope and magnitude of effort and complexities that this solicitation requires. Relevant shall mean that present or past performance effort involved similar scope and magnitude of effort and complexities this solicitation requires. Somewhat relevant shall mean that present or past performance effort involved some of the scope and magnitude of effort and complexities this solicitation requires. Not relevant shall mean that present or past performance effort involved little or none of the scope and magnitude of effort and complexities this solicitation requires. The results may be utilized to determine the Offeror’s rating on past projects with Government or other customers. Offeror’s with no relevant performance history or for whom information on past performance is not available will receive a neutral rating. A neutral rating will be evaluated as a “pass” for the purposes of determining technical acceptability. In the investigation of an Offeror’s past performance, the Government has the right to contact former customers, government agencies, and other private and public sources of information. Offerors must either provide the below information or affirmatively state that it possesses no relevant, directly related, or similar past performance. In addition the vendor shall send past performance questionnaires to three relevant customers.
