This is not a request for either a quote or proposal, or an invitation for bid. The intent of this pre-solicitation synopsis is to notify potential offerors of an FFP/IDIQ for Custodial Services at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, Kittery, Maine and Other Areas of Responsibility (AOR).
The work includes but is not limited to: recurring and scheduled services, space cleaning, emptying waste containers and desk side recycling containers, entrance cleaning, lunch/break room, window blinds, interior glass surfaces, drinking fountains, floor care, sweeping and dust mopping, vacuuming carpets and rugs, cleaning walk-off mats, spray cleaning and buffing, damp mopping, stripping, coating and buffing, carpet and rug deep cleaning, restrooms services, rest cleaning and debris removal provided at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, Kittery, Maine and Other Areas of Responsibility (AOR).
The work identified is to be provided by means of a combination Firm-Fixed Price/Indefinite Quantity type of contract.
Source Selection procedures will be used to select the proposal that provides the lowest price and is technically acceptable to the Government. Offerors will be evaluated using the Lowest Priced Technically Acceptable (LPTA) Method. In order to permit efficient competition, the Navy will utilize the following methodology: Proposals will initially be screened for price and placed in order of price (lowest price to highest price). The Navy will then evaluate the technical factors of the three (3) lowest priced proposals. The Navy will make award to the lowest priced technically acceptable proposal from among the three (3) lowest priced proposals. However, if no proposals are found to be technically acceptable within the first group of proposals, the Navy, at its sole discretion, reserves the right to increase the number of proposals it will review, until the Government identifies a technically acceptable proposal.
Accordingly, under this methodology, the technical factors of some proposals may not be evaluated by the Navy. If discussions are deemed necessary by the Contracting Officer, all proposals will be evaluated (both technical and price) for the purpose of establishing a competitive range. Proposers are advised that the Government intends to evaluate proposals and award without discussions or any contact concerning the proposals received. Therefore, proposals should be submitted initially on the most FAVORABLE terms. Proposers should not assume that they will be contacted or afforded an opportunity to qualify, discuss or revise their proposals. If discussions are deemed necessary by the Contracting Officer, all proposals will be evaluated (both non-price and price) for the purpose of establishing a competitive range.
The solicitation and resulting contract award will be a performance-based service acquisition made to the responsible offeror whose proposal, conforming to the Request for Proposals (RFP), will be advantageous to the Government price and other evaluation factors considered.
