52.212-2 Evaluation-Commercial Items

(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

Price

The evaluation of offers received in response to the solicitation will use a tiered or cascading order of precedence. Tiered evaluation of offers, also known as cascading evaluation of offers, is a procedure used in negotiated acquisitions when market research is inconclusive for justifying limiting competition to small business concerns or sub-categories of small business concerns. The contracting officer

(1) Solicits offers from both small and other than small business concerns that will be evaluated in the following tier order:

(a) service-disabled Veteran-owned small business (SDVOSB);

(b) Veteran-owned small business (VOSB);

(c) all other small business concerns;

(d) other than small business.

(2) If an award or a sufficient number of awards cannot be made at the first tier, evaluation of offers will proceed at the next lower tier until an award or a sufficient number of awards can be made.

Award will be made using the Lowest Price Technically Acceptable source selection process, on the basis of the lowest evaluated price of proposals meeting or exceeding the acceptability standards for the non-cost factors. Past performance shall be evaluated in accordance with FAR 15.305. However, the comparative assessment in FAR 15.305 (a) (2) (i) does not apply. Proposals will be evaluated for acceptability but not ranked using the non-cost/price factors.

(b) Options. The Government will evaluate offers for award purposes by adding the total price for all options to the total price for the basic requirement. The Government may determine that an offer is unacceptable if the option prices are significantly unbalanced. Evaluation of options shall not obligate the Government to exercise the option(s).

(c) A written notice of award or acceptance of an offer, mailed or otherwise furnished to the successful offeror within the time for acceptance specified in the offer, shall result in a binding contract without further action by either party. Before the offer's specified expiration time, the Government may accept an offer (or part of an offer), whether or not there are negotiations after its receipt, unless a written notice of withdrawal is received before award.
