(i) This is a combined synopsis/solicitation for commercial items prepared in accordance with the format in Subpart 12.6, as supplemented with additional information included in this notice. This announcement constitutes the only solicitation; quotations are being requested and a written solicitation will not be issued.

(ii) The solicitation number is 70T05018Q9NMED001. The solicitation is issued as a request for quotation (RFQ).

(iii) The solicitation document and incorporated provisions and clauses are those in effect through Federal Acquisition Circular 2005-95.

(vii) Delivery (i.e. range usage) will generally occur in the months of April through September of each year; however, range usage can occur at any point throughout the period of performance. Acceptance and FOB point are at the contractor's facility.

(viii) The provision at 52.212-1, Instructions to Offerors-Commercial applies to this acquisition. There are no addenda to the provision.

(ix) The provision at 52.212-2, Evaluation -- Commercial Items does not apply to the solicitation. The evaluation procedures to be used are as follows:
Award will be made using the lowest price technically acceptable (LPTA) selection process. Award may be made on initial quotations. Therefore, each initial quote should contain the quoter's best terms from a technical and price standpoint. However, the Government reserves the right to contact quoters if it is later determined by the contracting officer to be necessary. The LPTA process will proceed as follows:

1) Quotes may be removed from consideration for, but not limited to, the following reasons:

? Quotes that are not received timely
? Quotes that fail to follow the instructions in FAR Provision 52.212-1
? Quotes that fail to submit any required documentation
? Quotes that have language inconsistent with the terms and conditions set forth in the solicitation

2) Quotes will be ordered by price from lowest to highest.

3) The Government will then review Factor 1 of the lowest priced quote. If the review finds that Factor 1 of the lowest priced quote is acceptable, the Government will then evaluate Factor 2 of the lowest priced quote. If the review finds that Factor 2 of the lowest priced quote is acceptable, the Government will then evaluate Factor 3 of the lowest priced quote. If the review finds that Factor 3 of the lowest priced quote is acceptable, that quote represents the best value to the Government and the technical evaluation process stops at this point. Contingent upon a subsequent determination of price reasonableness and of contractor responsibility by the Contracting Officer, an award will be made to that quoter without further consideration of any other quoters.

If the lowest quote is determined not to be acceptable for any reason, then the next lowest priced quote will receive an evaluation as described above. The process will continue (in order by price) until a quote from a responsible contractor is determined to be acceptable and priced fairly and reasonably.


(e) Each Factor will be evaluated as follows:

Factor 1. Technical Acceptability

Past performance will be rated on an "acceptable" or "unacceptable" basis as follows:

Acceptable - The quoted range meets all technical criterion stated in the Statement of Work.

Unacceptable - The quoted range does not meet all technical criterion stated in the Statement of Work.

Factor 2. Past Performance

Past performance will be rated on an "acceptable" or "unacceptable" basis as follows:

Acceptable - Based on the quoter's performance record, the Government has a reasonable expectation that the quoter will successfully perform the required effort, or the quoter's performance record is unknown. (See note below.)

Unacceptable - Based on the quoter's performance record, the Government has no reasonable expectation that the quoter will be able to successfully perform the required effort.

Note: In the case of a quoter without a record of relevant past performance, or for whom information on past performance is not available or so sparse that no meaningful past performance rating can be reasonably assigned, the quoter may not be evaluated favorably or unfavorably on past performance. Therefore, the quoter shall be determined to have unknown past performance. In the context of acceptability/unacceptability, "unknown" shall be considered "acceptable."

Note: Quoters are not required or requested to submit past performance references. The Government will use public and Government-restricted sources (e.g. PPIRS) to evaluate past performance.

Factor 3. Price

Price will not be rated. Price analysis will be conducted to determine reasonableness.

(x) Quoters are required to include a completed copy of the provision at 52.212-3, Offeror Representations and Certifications -- Commercial Items with its quote. Quoters shall complete only paragraph (b) of this provision if they have completed the annual representations and certification electronically via the System for Award Management (SAM) Web site accessed through . If the Quoter has not completed the annual representations and certifications electronically, it shall complete only paragraphs (c) through (q) of this provision.
