FAR 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. The following factors shall be used to evaluate offers: Technical ability to meet specifications, past performance and price. Offerors shall provide specifications and other necessary information to demonstrate it meets the requirements of this solicitation (e.g. pictures, websites...).

Addendum to 52.212 2 Evaluation of Commercial Items
a. BASIS FOR CONTRACT AWARD: This acquisition will utilize the Lowest Priced
Technically Acceptable (LPTA) procedure to make a best value award. A decision on the
technical acceptability of each offeror s quotations will be made. For those offerors which are
determined to be technically acceptable, award will be made to that vendor with the lowest
overall price. While the Government will strive for maximum objectivity, the technical go/no go
process, by its nature, is subjective; therefore, professional judgment is implicit throughout the
evaluation process. The Government intends to make an award based on the initial quotations. If
further questions are required, the contracting officer may contact the offeror or offerors. Award
will be made to the responsible offeror whose quotation conforms to all solicitation requirements,
such as terms and conditions, representations and certifications, technical requirements, and also
provides the best value to the Government based on the results of the evaluation described in
paragraph (b) below.
(b) The LPTA evaluation process will be accomplished as follows:
(1) Technical Acceptability. Each offeror s technical quotations will be evaluated to determine if
the offeror provides a sound, compliant approach that meets the requirements of Part 5 of the
Performance Work Statement and demonstrates a thorough knowledge and understanding of
those requirements. An evaluation rating of Technically Acceptable / Non-Acceptable will be
assigned upon completion of the technical quotations evaluation. If an Offeror receives a
technical rating of Non-Acceptable they will not be considered for award.
