Submissions shall be in MS Office or Adobe Acrobat compatible formats.

Evaluation Criteria:

In accordance with FAR 52.212-2, the Government will award a contract resulting from this solicitation to the responsible offeror whose offer conforming to the solicitation will be the most advantageous to the Government, price and other factors considered. Each quote submitted is required to have sufficient detail to determine technical acceptability. Accompanying documentation shall demonstrate that the offeror's proposed solution will meet the essential requirements of the Government.

The following factors shall be used to evaluate offerors:

Factor 1 Price: Price will be evaluated based on the total proposed price for CLINs 0001 thru 0005.

Factor 2 Technical: The Technical factor will be an evaluation of the offeror's submission to determine if the offeror's proposed solution meets the minimum specifications provided in this solicitation and associated SOW. A solution that meets the minimum specifications will be rated as "Acceptable". A solution that fails to meet the minimum specifications will be rated as "Unacceptable".

Factor 3 Past Performance: The Government may use various techniques to evaluate an offeror's recent/relevant past performance. These techniques include, but are not limited to, reviewing information in the Past Performance Information Retrieval System (PPIRS), the Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System (FAPIIS), or other databases; or obtaining information from other sources available to the Government, such Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA), interviews with Program Mangers, Contracting Officers, etc. For the purposes of this solicitation, recent and relevant past performance is defined as efforts occurring within the last 3 years from date of issuance of this solicitation, that are the same or similar (as compared to NAICS 561621) as the effort required by this RFQ.

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

Past Performance will be evaluated as either "Acceptable" or "Unacceptable". An "Acceptable" rating will be assigned to an offeror for which, based on their performance record, the Government has a reasonable expectation that they will be able to successfully perform the required effort, or the offeror's performance record is unknown (see note above). An "Unacceptable" rating will be assigned to an offeror for which, based on their performance record, the Government does not have a reasonable expectation that they will be able to successfully perform the required effort.

Furthermore, the Government is NOT required to inform any Offeror that their Offer is non-compliant with the FAR or any of its supplements. Failure of an Offer to comply with any provision of the FAR and its supplements can be deemed by the Government as insufficient and non-responsive to the solicitation.
