2.  Period for acceptance of offer: Offeror agrees to hold prices for 60 calendar days from proposal due date

3. Contract award. The Government intends to evaluate offers and award a firm fixed- price contract without discussions with Offerers. Therefore, the Offerer's initial offer should contain the Offerer's best terms from a price and technical standpoint. However, the Government reserves the right to conduct discussions if later determined by the Contracting Officer to be necessary. The Government may reject any or all offers if such action is in the public interest and waive informalities and minor irregularities in offers receive.

ADDENDUM to FAR 52.212-2

Basis of Award. The Government will award a contract resulting from this solicitation to the responsible Offerer whose offer conforming to the solicitation will be most advantageous to the Government, price and other factors considered. Best value is expected to result from selection of the lowest total evaluated price (inclusive of all options) having acceptable ratings in both factors of Technical Capability and Past Performance. 

The following factors shall be used to evaluate offers:

Factor 1, Price: The Offeror shall submit pricing information to support the completeness and reasonableness of their proposed prices for all CLINs to include all options. The pricing information submitted shall fully support the requirements specified in the PWS. Offerors shall use the attached Solicitation - FA664824Q0003 (Attachment 1) to submit pricing on a firm fixed-price basis.

Factor 2, Technical: The Offeror shall provide a technical approach to perform services in accordance with the attached PWS Attachment 02. The narrative should include as specifically as possible, the actual methodology that will be used for accomplishing and satisfying the PWS’s stated requirements. The Offeror shall assume that the Government has no prior knowledge of its capabilities, facilities, and experience, thus the technical evaluation will be solely based on the information presented in the Offeror's Technical Capability Narrative.

In order to be found technically acceptable the quote must demonstrate the contractor's ability to provide the service as outlined in the PWS (Attachment 2). The government will evaluate quotes to determine technical acceptability. It is a pass/fail basis. If a quote fails, it will be determined to be not technically acceptable. Quote must be rated as technically acceptable to be eligible for award. (Your quote package MUST clearly show and demonstrate your company's ability to meet the stated requirements outlined in the performance work statement. Failure to provide enough information will result in a determination of quote being unresponsive to the solicitation.)

Factor 3, Past Performance: The Offeror shall submit at least two (2) recent and relevant past performance work within the last three (3) years. The Past Performance information shall include Contract Number, Agency of performed work, brief description of the contracted services, total dollar amount, and Agency's Point of Contact (Email/Phone Number).

In order to be found acceptable for past performance, past performance information included with the quote package must demonstrate a reasonable expectation that the offeror will successfully perform the required effort or the offeror's performance records is unknown.  If based on the offeror's performance record, the Government does not have a reasonable expectation that the offeror will be able to successfully perform the required effort an unacceptable rating will be assigned. 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 shall be determined unknown/neutral past performance. In the context of acceptability/unacceptability, a neutral rating shall be considered acceptable. It is a pass/fail basis. If a quote fails, it will be determined to be unacceptable for past performance.

Evaluation of Offers. By submission of its quote, the offeror agrees to all solicitation requirements, including terms and conditions, representations and certifications, and technical requirements. Failure to adhere to all solicitation requirements may result in an offer being determined unacceptable and ineligible for further evaluation. The evaluation process follows:

Quotes will be reviewed in sequence with the lowest priced offer being evaluated first. All offers will be evaluated on their proposed Total Price. If the initial lowest price is found to be technically acceptable and have acceptable past performance, award will be made to that vendor. If the offeror was found technically acceptable, but did not obtain an acceptable past performance rating, award will not be made to that offeror and the next lowest priced offeror will be evaluated. This process will continue until the Government has obtained a lowest priced offeror with acceptable Technical and acceptable Past Performance. Only one award will be made under this solicitation.

Notice of Award. A written notice of award or acceptance of an offer, emailed 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.

Offerors are required to complete the representations and certifications found in the provision at FAR 52.212-3, Offeror Representations and Certifications -­ Commercial Products and Commercial Services (DEC 2022) (included in Attachment 1) OR complete electronic annual representations and certifications at the System for Award Management https://www.sam.gov/SAM/.
