FACTOR 2 Price: Price proposals will be evaluated to determine if unit prices are fair and reasonable using the techniques described in FAR 13.106-3(a).
?(a) The Government will initiate concurrent evaluation of all evaluation factors on all proposals.

The judgment of such "correction potential" is within the sole discretion of the Government.

?(c) For the purpose of conducting discussions, if the Government rates the Technical factor as "Unacceptable" or if the Government determines that there is some other deficiency or uncertainty relative to an offeror's proposal, the entire proposal will be rated "Unacceptable." At the conclusion of discussions, if the Technical factor is rated "Unacceptable" or if any deficiency or uncertainty relative to the proposal has not been resolved, evaluation of that proposal will be considered final. The entire proposal will be rated "Unacceptable" and no further consideration will be given to that proposal for award.
?(d) For the purpose of award without discussions, if pursuant to initial evaluation, the Government rates the Technical factor as "Unacceptable" or if the Government determines that there is some other deficiency or uncertainty relative to an offeror's proposal, notwithstanding that any deficiency may be rectifiable or any uncertainty may be resolvable, the entire proposal will be rated "Unacceptable," the initial evaluation will be the final evaluation, and no further consideration will be given to that proposal for award.
