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 a Firm Fixed Price/Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (FFP/IDIQ) for Swimming Pool Equipment Maintenance and Repair Services in the Hampton Roads Area of Responsibility.
The work includes but is not limited to: Pool Maintenance, Water Treatment, Seasonal Start-Up, Seasonal Shutdown and Off-Season Maintenance.
The work identified is to be provided by means of a combination Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity Contract with Recurring and Non-Recurring Services. 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 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 priced to highest price). The Navy will then evaluate the technical factors of the lowest priced proposal. The Navy will make award to the lowest priced technically acceptable proposal. However, if the lowest priced proposal is not found to be technically acceptable, 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.
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.
The offerorâ€™s proposal shall contain a response to each of the evaluation factors and shall be in the form prescribed by the solicitation. The solicitation requires the evaluation of price and the following non-price factors: Factor 1 â€“ Technical Approach/Management, Factor 2 â€“ Corporate Experience, Factor 3 â€“ Safety and Factor 4 â€“ Past Performance. NOTE: Offerors MUST be evaluated as technically ACCEPTABLE under factors 1, 2, 3 and 4 in order to be considered technically acceptable overall.
Factor 2 Corporate Experience and Factor 4 Past Performance: The Offeror shall submit projects that are similar in size, scope and complexity to the solicitation.
Size: A maintenance service contract with a yearly value of at least $170K or greater for recurring services.
Indefinite Quantity/Indefinite Delivery values for infrequent work will not be considered similar in size.
