Notice Type :
Added: Oct 03, 2017 3:22 pmNOTICE TO QUOTERS: Appropriated funds are not presently available for this requirement; however, there is a reasonable expectation that funds will be committed and certified to result in an obligation under an award of a contract. No contract award can be made in absence of appropriated funds to cover the requirement.
This is not a request to build/construct a new firing range.
(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.
(iv) This solicitation is issued as a small business set-aside. The associated NAICS code is 611699 with an associated small business size standard of $11M.
(v) The resultant contract will consist of five contract line items (CLIN) as follows:
(vi) Description of Requirements: Range Services for the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Office of Law Enforcement Miami Field Office. All services shall be accomplished in accordance with the attached Statement of Work.
(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.
1) Quotes may be removed from consideration for, but not limited to, the following reasons:
? Quotes that are not received timely
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.
4) USING THIS PROCEDURE, THE GOVERNMENT MIGHT NOT EVALUATE ALL QUOTES.
(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.
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: 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.
Price will not be rated. Price analysis will be conducted to determine reasonableness.
