ADDENDA TO 52.212-2, Evaluation -- Commercial Items (
(a) The Government will award a contract resulting from this solicitation to the responsible offeror whose offer conforming to this solicitation will be most advantageous to the Government, price and other factors considered. The following factors shall be used to evaluate offers: 1) Price 2) Technical ability of the service offered to meet the Government requirement
3) Past Performance
Price - Received quotes will first be ranked and arranged by price (lowest first) before the Government assesses technical capability. Offers will be evaluated based on total price. The Government will evaluate offers for award purposes by adding the total price for all options to the total price for the basic requirement. The Government may determine that an offer is unacceptable if the option prices are significantly unbalanced. Evaluation of options shall not obligate the Government to exercise option(s). IAW FAR 52.217-8, a 6 month extension will be evaluated as part of the initial price evaluation. If the offeror does not provide a seperately priced line item for the six month extension, the Government will evaluate the extension using the offerors provided rates for the base and/or option years.
Technical - An offeror must provide specific evidence that they are capable of fulfilling the requirment. Technical criteria will be evaluated by a technical advisor for compatibility/functionality review and rated IAW Table A-1 (as provided below). Documents submitted in response to this solicitation must be fully responsive to and consistent with the following (if applicable): (1) Requirements of the solicitation (Item Numbers), Performance Work Statement (PWS) and government standards and regulations pertaining to this requirement. Table A-1. Technical Acceptable/Unacceptable Ratings Rating Description Acceptable Quote clearly meets the minimum requirements of the solicitation. Unacceptable Quote does not clearly meet the minimum requirements of the solicitation. Past Performance - Past performance will be rated on an "acceptable" or "unacceptable" basis using the ratings in table A-2.
Table A-2. Past Performance Evaluation Ratings Rating Description Acceptable Based on the offeror's performance record, the Government has a reasonable expectation that the offeror will successfully perform the required effort, or the offeror's performance record is unknown. (See note below.) Unacceptable Based on the offeror's performance record, the Government has no reasonable expectation that the offeror will be able to successfully perform the required effort.
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 meaningful past performance rating can be reasonably assigned, the offeror may not be evaluated favorably or unfavorably on past performance (see FAR 15.305 (a)(2)(iv)). Therefore, the offeror shall be determined to have unknown past performance. In the context of acceptability/unacceptability, "unknown"all be considered "acceptable."
The government will evaluate the quality and extent of offeror's performance deemed relevant to the requirements of this solicitation. The evaluation of past performance information will take into account past performance information regarding predecessor companies, key personnel who have relevant experience, or subcontractors that will perform major or critical aspects of the requirement when such information is relevant to the instant acquisition. The government will use information submitted by the offeror and other sources such as other Federal Government offices and commercial sources, to assess performance. Offerors must provide a list of no less than three (3), of the most relevant contracts performed for Federal agencies and commercial customers within the last three (3) years. Relevant contracts include present/past performance efforts which involved much of the magnitude of effort and complexities this solicitation requires.
Evaluation Summary - If the lowest priced offer is determined to be acceptable for both technical and past performance that offer represents the best value for the Government and the evaluation process stops at this point. Award shall be made to that offeror without further consideration of any other offers. If the lowest priced offeror is not judged to be technically acceptable or has unacceptable past performance the next lowest priced offeror will be evaluated and the process will continue (in order by price) until an offeror is determined to be acceptable for both technical and past performance, or until all offerors are evaluated. A written notice of award or acceptance of an offer, mailed or otherwise furnished to the successful offeror within the time for acceptance specified in the offer, shall result in a binding contract without further action by either party. Before the offer's specified expiration time, the Government may accept an offer (or part of an offer), whether or not there are negotiations after its receipt, unless a written notice of withdrawal is received before award.
