BASIS FOR AWARD. FAR Provision 52.212-1 Instructions to Offerors-Commercial, applies to this acquisition and the attached addenda to the provision. The FAR provision 52.212-2 Evaluation-Commercial Items is applicable to this solicitation, and the specific evaluation criteria to be included in paragraph (a) of that provision are as follows: Award will be made to the lowest priced technically acceptable (LPTA) offeror. The Government intends to make a single award resulting from this solicitation. All proposals will be initially evaluated according to price. Only the lowest priced proposal will be forwarded for evaluation of all non-price factors. These include the Technical and Past Performance evaluations. If the offer is deemed to be technically acceptable, and the vendor is found to have a favorable past performance history, no other proposals will be evaluated. If deemed unacceptable or to have unfavorable past performance, the next lowest priced proposal will be forwarded for evaluation. This will continue in turn according to price. Technical acceptability will be evaluated to determine whether proposal meets or exceeds the acceptability standards for the non-price evaluation factors.


PRICE EVALUATION (Lowest Price)


The Government will conduct a price evaluation of the offeror's price proposal using the offeror's Pricing which is to be totaled in Block 24 of the attached Standard Form (SF)1449.



TECHNICAL EVALUATION SCORING (Acceptable, Unacceptable)


Definition of Acceptable/Unacceptable


? Acceptable -Proposal clearly meets the minimum requirements of the solicitation (As below)


? Unacceptable - Proposal does not clearly meet the minimum requirements of the solicitation (again as below).


Technical Evaluation Factors

2. The Intrusion Detection System installer shall hold a current Underwriter's Laboratory 2050 (UL2050) Certification. Verification of License shall be provided with offerors submission and must be valid at that time.

4. Project Schedule that meets the 160 calendar day time table. (90-days design, 10-days Government review and 60-days installation)


PAST PERFORMANCE REVIEW


The Government will perform a past performance evaluation to examine the extent to which the offeror's recent past performance demonstrates their capability and capacity to successfully perform the requirements of the SOW.


The Government will consider past or current contracts (including Federal, State and local government and private) for efforts similar to the Government requirement. The Government will consider information provided on problems encountered on the identified contracts and associated corrective actions. Offerors with a negative past performance rating will be afforded an opportunity to address alleged deficiencies.


The Government may also consider information obtained from any other sources when evaluating past performance. Failure of an offeror to disclose a relevant Government contract with poor past performance may affect the offeror's past performance rating. Based on the evaluation the low offeror will be determined either favorable for award or not favorable for award.


In the case of an offeror without a record of relevant past performance or for whom information on past performance is not available, the offeror may not be evaluated favorably or unfavorably. Such offerors will receive a "Neutral" rating.

Failure to comply with the submission requirements in the RFP document may result in the offeror's proposal as being determined non-responsive.
