The following factors shall be used to evaluate offers, Price and Past Performance.

Quotes will be evaluated by performing a direct comparison of one offer with another in a uniform manner to determine which quote provides the government with its needs, as identified in the RFP. The government reserves the right to consider a response that offers more than the minimum and select that response if it provides a benefit to the government. The government has the discretion to accept other than the lowest priced offeror that provides additional benefits.

The government intends to award a contract without discussions with respective offerors. The

government, however, reserves the right to conduct discussions if deemed in its best interest.

Therefore, the offeror’s initial offer should contain the offeror’s best terms from a price and past performance standpoint. The Government reserves the right to conduct discussions if later the Contracting Officer determines to be necessary.
