52.212-2 EVALUATION--COMMERCIAL ITEMS (OCT 2014)

Proposals that do not respond to all requirements in the solicitation may be rejected without further evaluation, deliberation, or discussion.

Award will be made on the basis of the lowest evaluated price of proposals meeting or exceeding the acceptability standards for non-price factors. The quote with the lowest evaluated price will be evaluated for technical acceptability. Only if that quote is found to be technically unacceptable will the evaluation proceed to the quote with the next lowest evaluated price. This process will continue until the lowest priced technically acceptable quote is found. The following factors shall be used to evaluate technical acceptability of the lowest priced offeror:

1. TECHNICAL AND MANAGEMENT APPROACH (non-price)

Offerors should provide three (3) references for the same or similar work performed for Federal, State, and local government and private clients. An Offeror may also provide information on problems encountered on the identified projects and the offer’s corrective actions. The Government will consider this information, as well as information obtained from any other sources, when evaluating the offeror’s past performance. An offeror will not be evaluated favorably or unfavorably on past performance if the offeror has no record of relevant past performance or for whom information on past performance is not available.

3. PRICE

A comparison of proposal pricing received in response to the solicitation will be made in order to make a determination of fair and reasonable pricing in accordance with the Firm Fixed Price nature of this acquisition action.

(b) Options. N/A

(c) 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.

The Government reserves the right to award without discussions with Offerors.
