The following factors shall be used to evaluate offers: Basis for award: the award will be based on the best overall proposal that is deemed most beneficial to the Government. The three evaluation factors are technical, past performance and cost/price. Technical and past performance is of equal importance. When combined are significantly more important than cost/price. Evaluation criteria: a. Technical: Experience- The offeror shall demonstrate the number of years experience performing the maintenance and repair services for the equipment listed. If offeror is not the original equipment manufacturer they must provide evidence that they are and authorized third party contractor with access to all parts, equipment and loan equipment to ensure timeliness of service. Key Personnel- The offeror shall provide evidence that all proposed service personnel are certified or have applicable certificates to provide the required services. Preventive Maintenance plan- The offeror shall provide a draft preventive maintenance plan that includes services to be provided based on standards and the requirements of the contract, response times, supplies, equipment supplied delineation of responsibilities. The following adjectival ratings will be used to evaluate each proposal submitted in response to this solicitation: Outstanding - A proposal that satisfies all the Government's requirements with extensive detail to indicate feasibility of the approach and shows a through understanding of the problems and offers numerous significant strengths, which are not offset by weaknesses, with an overall low degree of risk in meeting the Government's requirements. Good- A proposal that satisfies all the Government's requirements with adequate detail to indicate feasibility of the approach an shows an understanding of the problems and offers some significant strengths or numerous minor strengths which are not offset by weaknesses, with an overall low to moderate degree of risk in meeting the Government's requirements. Acceptable- A proposal that satisfies all of the Government's requirements with minimal detail to indicate feasibility of the approach and shows a minimal understanding of the problems, with an overall moderate to high degree of risk in meeting the Governments requirements. Unacceptable- A proposal that contains major error(s), omissions(s) or deficiency(ies) that indicate a lack of understanding of the problems or an approach that cannot be expected to meet requirements or involves a very high risk, and non e of these conditions can be corrected without a major rewrite or revision of the proposal. b. Past Performance/Performance Risk: Performance risk is something that both the Government and the offerors want to keep at a level that is appropriate for the given acquisition. Past performance analysis provides insight into an offeror's probability of successfully completing the solicitation requirements based on the offeror's performance record on similar contract efforts. The offeror shall provide a narrative of services provided on the same of similar equipment within the last 3 years to federal, state, local Government or commercial entities. Information shall include the following, Name of Organization, Address, Point of contact, Phone number, period of performance and the relationship to the requirements of the solicitation.

Moderate Risk- Some doubt exists, based on the Offeror's performance record, that the Offeror can perform the proposed effort. High Risk- Significant doubt exists, based on the Offeror's performance record, that the Offeror can perform the proposed effort. Unknown Risk- Little or no relevant performance record identifiable; equates to an unknown risk rating having no positive or negative evaluation significance. c. A price analysis of the offer will be used to evalute the total price proposed as fair and reasonable d. Options. The Government will evaluate offers for award purposes by adding the total price for all options to the total price for the basic reqirement. The Government may determine that an offer is unacceptable if the otion prices are significantly unbalanced. Evaluation of options shall not oblige the Government to exercise the option(s). e. Option to Extend Services. The Government may require 6 months of additional service based on clause 52.217-8. For award purposes the Government will evaluate the price for the 6 month extension by utilizing the current years pricing and multiply by the number of months required (not to exceed 6 months). The Government may determine that an offer is unacceptable if the option extension price is adjusted and considered to be unbalanced. Evaluation of the option extension shall not oblige the Government to extend the service period. f. 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.

The following ratings shall be used: Example 1: EXCEPTIONAL: Performance significantly exceeds contract requirements to the Government's benefit. SATISFACTORY: Performance meets contractual requirements. UNSATISFACTORY: Performance does not meet contractual requirements. 10. DOCUMENTING PERFORMANCE. a. ACCEPTABLE PERFORMANCE. The Government shall document positive performance. A report template is attached. Any report may become a part of the supporting documentation for fixed fee payments, award fee payments, or other actions. b. UNACCEPTABLE PERFORMANCE. When unacceptable performance occurs, the COR shall inform the contractor. This will normally be in writing unless circumstances necessitate verbal communication. In any case the COR shall document the discussion and place it in the COR file. When the COR determines formal written communication is required, the COR shall prepare a Contract Discrepancy Report (CDR), and present it to the contractor's task manager or on-site representative. A CDR template is attached to this QASP. The contractor shall acknowledge receipt of the CDR in writing. The CDR will specify if the contractor is required to prepare a corrective action plan to document how the contractor shall correct the unacceptable performance and avoid a recurrence. The CDR will also state how long after receipt the contractor has to present this corrective action plan to the COR. The Government shall review the contractor's corrective action plan to determine acceptability. Any CDRs may become a part of the supporting documentation for contract payment deductions, fixed fee deductions, award fee nonpayment, or other actions deemed necessary by the KO. 11. FREQUENCY OF MEASUREMENT. a. Frequency of Measurement. During contract/order performance, the COR shall take periodic measurements, quarterly as specified in the AQL column of the Performance Standards Summary Matrix, and shall analyze whether the negotiated frequency of measurement is appropriate for the work being performed. b. Frequency of Performance Assessment Meetings. The COR shall meet with the contractor quarterly to assess performance and shall provide a written assessment. PERFORMANCE REPORT 1.

The following factors shall be used to evaluate offers: 1. BASIS FOR THE AWARD 1.1. This is a competitive requirement for maintenance services consisting of customer support, software updates and upgrades, maintenance. Service shall include all parts, labor, travel, phone support and preventative maintenance visits to USAMRIID. 1.2. The requirement will be evaluated using Lowest Price Technically Acceptable (LPTA) source selection process in accordance with FAR 15.101-2 and Army Source Selection Supplement determining if contractor proposal is "Acceptable" or "Unacceptable." A single firm-fixed price (FFP) contract will be established if the offeror has been determined responsible and the technical proposal is determined to be acceptable to the Government, cost/price and other factors considered. 1.3. To receive consideration for award, offerors must achieve an evaluation of not less than "Acceptable" for the Management Approach and Past performance evaluation factors. The non-cost/price evaluation factors are as follows: Factor 1: Technical Approach Factor 2: Past Performance Factor 3: Price Government evaluators will not assume that the offeror possesses any capability or knowledge unless it is specified in the proposal. 2. Evaluation Criteria: (The following criteria will be used to evaluate the non-price aspects of the proposal.) 2.1. Factor 1: Technical Approach : The technical approach will be evaluated to the degree to which the Offeror technical approach demonstrates a clear understanding of all the tasks and how the approach is likely to yield the required results within the required timeframe; the methodology and flexibility that will be used in accomplishing any resultant award; overall ability to perform; The technical approach is creative and reduces cost, technical, or schedule risk to the Government. 2.2. Factor 2: Past Performance : The Government will conduct a past performance risk evaluation that will be based on the quality, relevance, and currency of the Offeror's past performance, as well as that of its Subcontractors. This evaluation will consider how each Offeror's past performance relates to the probability of successful accomplishment of the required effort. Past Performance will be evaluated for the Offeror's probability of meeting the solicitation requirements. The Past Performance evaluation will consider the Offeror's demonstrated relevant and recent record of performance in supplying products and services that meet the requirements. A performance confidence assessment rating will be assigned for each Offeror focusing on relevant and recent Past Performance. The Government will review the Past Performance information to determine the quality and usefulness as it applies to performance confidence assessment. The Past Performance risk evaluation will assess the risks associated with an Offeror's likelihood of success in performing the PWS requirements indicated by the Offeror's record of past performance on relevant efforts, either included in the proposal or identified by the evaluators in any other manner. In this context, "Offeror" refers to the proposed Prime Contractor and all proposed Subcontractors. The Prime Contractor and proposed Subcontractors will first be assessed individually and the results will then be assessed in their totality to derive the Offeror's Past Performance rating. 2.3. Factor 3 - Price: Price will be evaluated separately from non-price and past performance factors. A price analysis will be performed in order to evaluate the fairness and reasonableness of the proposed price. The proposed price will be evaluated to ascertain consistency with the level of effort described in the offeror's technical proposal. 3. EVALUATION RATING STANDARDS 3.1. Technical Approach Ratings (excluding Past Performance) Technical Acceptable/Unacceptable Ratings Acceptable - Proposal Clearly meets the minimum requirements of the solicitation. Unacceptable - Proposal does not clearly meet the minimum requirements of the solicitation. 3.2. Past Performance Ratings Past Performance Acceptable/Unacceptable Ratings 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. 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. (b) Options. 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 the option(s). (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. 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.

The following factors shall be used to evaluate offers: Factor 1 Technical Factor 2 Price (b) Basis for Award & Evaluation This will be a LPTA procurement. The Government intends to evaluate quotations and award a contract without discussions with Offerors. The Government reserves the right to conduct discussions if the Contracting Officer later determines them to be necessary. The LPTA process is selected as appropriate for this acquisition because the best value is expected to result from selection of the technically acceptable quotation with the lowest evaluated price. An overall technical rating must be at least "ACCEPTABLE" in order to be eligible for award. An "UNACCEPTABLE" rating, results in the technical quotation being rated "UNACCEPTABLE" unless corrected through discussions. An overall technical rating of "UNACCEPTABLE" makes a quotation ineligible for award.

In such cases, the Inspection of Services clause and the Inspection of Supplies clause in the Contract becomes the basis for the KO's actions. 6. RATINGS. Metrics and methods are designed to determine if performance exceeds, meets, or does not meet a given standard and acceptable quality level. A rating scale shall be used to determine a positive, neutral, or negative outcome. The following ratings shall be used: Example 1: EXCEPTIONAL: Performance significantly exceeds contract requirements to the Government's benefit. SATISFACTORY: Performance meets contractual requirements. UNSATISFACTORY: Performance does not meet contractual requirements. 7. DOCUMENTING PERFORMANCE. a. ACCEPTABLE PERFORMANCE. The Government shall document positive performance. A report template is attached. Any report may become a part of the supporting documentation for fixed fee payments, award fee payments, or other actions. b. UNACCEPTABLE PERFORMANCE. When unacceptable performance occurs, the COR shall inform the contractor. This will normally be in writing unless circumstances necessitate verbal communication. In any case the COR shall document the discussion and place it in the COR file. When the COR determines formal written communication is required, the COR shall prepare a Contract Discrepancy Report (CDR), and present it to the contractor's task manager or on-site representative. A CDR template is attached to this QASP. The contractor shall acknowledge receipt of the CDR in writing. The CDR will specify if the contractor is required to prepare a corrective action plan to document how the contractor shall correct the unacceptable performance and avoid a recurrence. The CDR will also state how long after receipt the contractor has to present this corrective action plan to the COR. The Government shall review the contractor's corrective action plan to determine acceptability. Any CDRs may become a part of the supporting documentation for contract payment deductions, fixed fee deductions, award fee nonpayment, or other actions deemed necessary by the KO. 8. FREQUENCY OF MEASUREMENT. a. Frequency of Measurement. During contract/order performance, the COR shall take periodic measurements, quarterly as specified in the AQL column of the Performance Standards Summary Matrix, and shall analyze whether the negotiated frequency of measurement is appropriate for the work being performed. b. Frequency of Performance Assessment Meetings. The COR shall meet with the contractor quarterly to assess performance and shall provide a written assessment. PERFORMANCE REPORT 1.

(End of provision) 52.212-2 EVALUATION--COMMERCIAL ITEMS (OCT 2014) (a) The Government will award a contract resulting from this solicitation to the responsible offeror whose offer conforming to the solicitation will be most advantageous to the Government, price and other factors considered. The following factors shall be used to evaluate offers: 1. BASIS FOR AWARD 1.1. Award of a single contract shall be made on a competitive basis, using the best value tradeoff process among price and non-price factors described at FAR 15.101-1. The resulting contract is expected to be firm-fixed-price. 1.2. The Government intends to evaluate offers and award a contract without discussions with offerors. Therefore, the offeror's initial offer should contain the offeror'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. 1.3. Award of this contract will be made on a competitive best value basis, using tradeoffs among price and non-price factors. Thus, the Government may elect to award to other than the lowest priced offeror, or other than the highest technically rated offeror. Past Performance will be evaluated independently from the other non-price evaluation factors using different standards. The evaluation factors are listed below in descending order of importance. Factor 1 - Technical Capability Factor 2 - Experience Factor 3 - Past Performance Factor 4 - Price 1.4. The Government will not assume that the offeror possesses any capability or knowledge unless it is specified in the proposal. 1.5. After Factors 1 and 2 are rated individually, an overall rating will be assigned to these factors collectively. If Factor 1 or 2 receives an individual rating of "Unacceptable," the overall rating will also be "Unacceptable." Proposals that receive a rating of "Marginal" for Factor 1 or 2 will not be considered in the tradeoff process. Only proposals receiving an overall rating of "Acceptable" or higher will be considered for award. 2 EVALUATION CRITERIA 2.1. Factor 1 - Technical Capability: The technical capability will be evaluated for the degree to which the Offeror's technical capability demonstrates a clear understanding of the PWS and all the tasks to be performed;, the methodology and flexibility that will be utilized;, and how the approach will accomplish all tasks, subtasks, and administrative tasks as are necessary to ensure program success within the proposal's required time frame. This capability will be evaluated for the degree to which the technical capability demonstrates a clear working knowledge of a sterilization system in a Government laboratory. Technical capability shall include the procedures for daily operation, preventive and corrective maintenance in Bio Safety Level (BSL) 1, BSL2, BSL3 or BSL4 containment. 2.2. Factor 2 - Experience: The Offeror's proposal will be evaluated to the degree to which the Offeror's proposal reflects experience identical to, similar to, or related to performing services contained within the PWS. The experience will be evaluated to the degree to which the Offeror demonstrates relevant experience in providing the services to maintain a sterilization system in government medical research laboratories, specifically biomedical laboratories identical, similar or related to this PWS. Offeror proposals will be evaluated to the degree proposals cite specific examples of relevant experience in the areas of basic and complex operation of a sterilization system; preventive maintenance of a sterilization system; corrective maintenance (including spare part) of a sterilization system; and information technology and management experience of maintaining a sterilization system . 2.3. Factor 3 - Past Performance: Past performance shall be evaluated on the basis of the offeror's demonstrated recent and relevant record of performance in services that meet the contract's requirements. The Government will conduct a past performance risk evaluation and confidence assessment of the offeror that will be based on the relevance, recency, and quality of the offeror's past performance on projects of similar size, scope, and complexity within similar periods of performance. a. Offerors shall submit a list of no more than two (2) references familiar with the offeror's performance on relevant contracts within the past three (3) years. It is the offeror's responsibility to provide valid, current, and verifiable references. References must include the following information: i. Name of the organization that will be providing the reference ii. Name of the point of contact (POC) familiar with contract performance iii. POC telephone number iv. POC email address v. Contract number vi. Period of performance vii. Summary of the scope of work performed b. The Government will review the relevant and recent past performance information to determine the risks associated with an offeror's probability of successfully performing the required efforts. c. The Government may elect to consider data obtained from other sources. Other sources available to the Government include, but are not limited to, the Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System (FAPIIS) and Past Performance Information Retrieval System (PPIRS). d. In the case of an Offeror who has no recent/relevant performance record available or the Offeror's performance record is so sparse that no meaningful confidence assessment 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 will be determined to have "Unknown Confidence" for its past performance evaluation factor. 2.4. Factor 4 - Price: Price will be evaluated separately from non-price and past performance factors. A price analysis will be performed in order to evaluate the fairness and reasonableness of the proposed price. The Government will evaluate the consistency, completeness, fairness and reasonableness of the Offeror's cost/price proposal. The base contract(s) shall contain the Clause FAR 52.217-8 Option to Extend Services, or an equivalent clause. By submitting a proposal for this requirement, the contractor agrees to this inclusion in the base contract. Option Year Periods. The Government will evaluate the offers for award purposes by examining the labor rate for all options based on the basic estimated labor utilization for the requirement. Evaluation of options shall not obligate the Government to exercise the option(s). The evaluated price with be the total of the base year plus all option periods. 3. EVALUATION RATING STANDARDS 3.1. RATING STANDARDS FOR THE NON-PRICE PROPOSAL (EXCLUDING PAST PERFORMANCE) Combined Technical/Risk Ratings Table Rating Description Outstanding Proposal meets requirements and indicates an exceptional approach and understanding of the requirements. Strengths far outweigh any weaknesses. Risk of unsuccessful performance is very low. Good Proposal meets requirements and indicates a thorough approach and understanding of the requirements. Proposal contains strengths which outweigh any weaknesses. Risk of unsuccessful performance is low. Acceptable Proposal meets requirements and indicates an adequate approach and understanding of the requirements. Strengths and weaknesses are offsetting or will have little or no impact on contract performance. Risk of unsuccessful performance is no worse than moderate. Marginal Proposal does not clearly meet requirements and has not demonstrated an adequate approach and understanding of the requirements. The proposal has one or more weaknesses which are not offset by strengths. Risk of unsuccessful performance is high. Unacceptable Proposal does not meet requirements and contains one or more deficiencies. Proposal is unawardable. 3.2. RATING STANDARDS FOR PAST PERFORMANCE Past Performance Relevancy Ratings Table Rating Description Relevant Present/past performance effort involved at least some of the scope and magnitude of effort and complexities this solicitation requires. Not Relevant Present/past performance effort involved little or none of the scope and magnitude of effort and complexities this solicitation requires. Performance Confidence Assessments Table Rating Description Substantial Confidence Based on the offeror's recent/relevant performance record, the Government has a high expectation that the offeror shall successfully perform the required effort. Satisfactory Confidence Based on the offeror's recent/relevant performance record, the Government has a reasonable expectation that the offeror shall successfully perform the required effort. Limited Confidence Based on the offeror's recent/relevant performance record, the Government has a low expectation that the offer shall successfully perform the required effort. No Confidence Based on the offeror's recent/relevant performance record, the Government has no expectation that the offeror shall successfully perform the required effort. Unknown Confidence (Neutral) No recent/relevant performance record is available or the offeror's performance record is so sparse that no meaningful confidence assessment rating can be reasonably assigned. 4. DEFINITIONS Term Definition Clarifications Limited exchanges between the Government and offerors that may occur when award without discussions is contemplated. Communications Exchanges, between the Government and offerors, after receipt of proposals, leading to establishment of the competitive range. Deficiency A material failure of a proposal to meet a Government requirement or a combination of significant weakness in a proposal that increases the risk of unsuccessful contract performance to an unacceptable level. See FAR 15.001. Discussions Negotiations conducted in a competitive acquisition. Discussions take place after establishment of the competitive range. Performance Confidence Assessment An evaluation of the likelihood (or Government's confidence) that the offeror will successfully perform the solicitation's requirements; the evaluation is based upon past performance information. Recency As it pertains to past performance information, is a measure of the time that has elapsed since the past performance reference occurred. Recency is generally expressed as a time period during which past performance references are considered relevant. Relevancy As it pertains to past performance information, is a measure of the extent of similarity between the service/support effort, complexity, dollar value, contract type, and subcontract/teaming or other comparable attributes of past performance examples and the source solicitation requirements; and a measure of the likelihood that the past performance is an indicator of future performance. Risk The potential for unsuccessful contract performance. The consideration of risk assesses the degree to which an offeror's proposed approach to achieving the technical factor or subfactor may involve risk of disruption of schedule, increased cost (not applicable to firm-fixed-price contract) for degradation of performance, the need for increased Government oversight, and the likelihood of unsuccessful contract performance. Significant Weakness A flaw that appreciably increases the risk of unsuccessful contract performance. See FAR 15.001. Significant Strength An aspect of an Offeror's proposal that has appreciable merit or appreciably exceeds specified performance or capability requirements in a way that will be appreciably advantageous to the Government during contract performance. Strength An aspect of an Offeror's proposal that has merit or exceeds specified performance or capability requirements in a way that will be advantageous to the Government during contract performance. Weakness A flaw in the proposal that increases the risk of unsuccessful contract performance.

The NAICS code and small business size standard for this acquisition appear in Block 10 of the solicitation cover sheet (SF 1449).

(b) Submission of offers. Submit signed and dated offers to the office specified in this solicitation at or before the exact time specified in this solicitation. Offers may be submitted on the SF 1449, letterhead stationery, or as otherwise specified in the solicitation. As a minimum, offers must show-- (1) The solicitation number; (2) The time specified in the solicitation for receipt of offers; (3) The name, address, and telephone number of the offeror; (4) A technical description of the items being offered in sufficient detail to evaluate compliance with the requirements in the solicitation. This may include product literature, or other documents, if necessary; (5) Terms of any express warranty; (6) Price and any discount terms; (7) "Remit to" address, if different than mailing address; (8) A completed copy of the representations and certifications at FAR 52.212-3 (see FAR 52.212-3(b) for those representations and certifications that the offeror shall complete electronically); (9) Acknowledgment of Solicitation Amendments; (10) Past performance information, when included as an evaluation factor, to include recent and relevant contracts for the same or similar items and other references (including contract numbers, points of contact with telephone numbers and other relevant information); and (11) If the offer is not submitted on the SF 1449, include a statement specifying the extent of agreement with all terms, conditions, and provisions included in the solicitation. Offers that fail to furnish required representations or information, or reject the terms and conditions of the solicitation may be excluded from consideration. (c) Period for acceptance of offers. The offeror agrees to hold the prices in its offer firm for 30 calendar days from the date specified for receipt of offers, unless another time period is specified in an addendum to the solicitation. (d) Product samples. When required by the solicitation, product samples shall be submitted at or prior to the time specified for receipt of offers. Unless otherwise specified in this solicitation, these samples shall be submitted at no expense to the Government, and returned at the sender's request and expense, unless they are destroyed during preaward testing. (e) Multiple offers. Offerors are encouraged to submit multiple offers presenting alternative terms and conditions or commercial items for satisfying the requirements of this solicitation. Each offer submitted will be evaluated separately. (f) Late submissions, modifications, revisions, and withdrawals of offers: (1) Offerors are responsible for submitting offers, and any modifications, revisions, or withdrawals, so as to reach the Government office designated in the solicitation by the time specified in the solicitation. If no time is specified in the solicitation, the time for receipt is 4:30 p.m., local time, for the designated Government office on the date that offers or revisions are due. (2)(i) Any offer, modification, revision, or withdrawal of an offer received at the Government office designated in the solicitation after the exact time specified for receipt of offers is "late" and will not be considered unless it is received before award is made, the Contracting Officer determines that accepting the late offer would not unduly delay the acquisition; and-- (A) If it was transmitted through an electronic commerce method authorized by the solicitation, it was received at the initial point of entry to the Government infrastructure not later than 5:00 p.m. one working day prior to the date specified for receipt of offers; or (B) There is acceptable evidence to establish that it was received at the Government installation designated for receipt of offers and was under the Government's control prior to the time set for receipt of offers; or (C) If this solicitation is a request for proposals, it was the only proposal received. (ii) However, a late modification of an otherwise successful offer, that makes its terms more favorable to the Government, will be considered at any time it is received and may be accepted. (3) Acceptable evidence to establish the time of receipt at the Government installation includes the time/date stamp of that installation on the offer wrapper, other documentary evidence of receipt maintained by the installation, or oral testimony or statements of Government personnel. (4) If an emergency or unanticipated event interrupts normal Government processes so that offers cannot be received at the Government office designated for receipt of offers by the exact time specified in the solicitation, and urgent Government requirements preclude amendment of the solicitation or other notice of an extension of the closing date, the time specified for receipt of offers will be deemed to be extended to the same time of day specified in the solicitation on the first work day on which normal Government processes resume. (5) Offers may be withdrawn by written notice received at any time before the exact time set for receipt of offers. Oral offers in response to oral solicitations may be withdrawn orally. If the solicitation authorizes facsimile offers, offers may be withdrawn via facsimile received at any time before the exact time set for receipt of offers, subject to the conditions specified in the solicitation concerning facsimile offers. An offer may be withdrawn in person by an offeror or its authorized representative if, before the exact time set for receipt of offers, the identity of the person requesting withdrawal is established and the person signs a receipt for the offer. (g) Contract award (not applicable to Invitation for Bids). The Government intends to evaluate offers and award a contract without discussions with offerors. Therefore, the offeror's initial offer should contain the offeror'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; accept other than the lowest offer; and waive informalities and minor irregularities in offers received. (h) Multiple awards. The Government may accept any item or group of items of an offer, unless the offeror qualifies the offer by specific limitations. Unless otherwise provided in the Schedule, offers may not be submitted for quantities less than those specified. The Government reserves the right to make an award on any item for a quantity less than the quantity offered, at the unit prices offered, unless the offeror specifies otherwise in the offer. (i) Availability of requirements documents cited in the solicitation.

Evaluation will be made to identify all Offerors whose quotes are technically acceptable in accordance with this RFQ and the evaluation criteria set forth below. Award will be made to the Offeror from the pool of technically acceptable quotes, whose price is the lowest. The Offerors' quotes will be evaluated to ensure the Government receives a technically acceptable quote at a fair and reasonable price. Technical acceptability will be determined by evaluating the following non-price factor: Factor 1 - Technical Capability/Specifications The Government evaluators will not assume the Offeror possesses the supplies unless specified in the quote. After the above non-price factor is rated individually, an overall rating will be assigned collectively to the factor.

(c) Evaluation Criteria: The Offeror's quote for this requirement will be evaluated using the following criteria.

The following factors shall be used to evaluate offers: Factor 1 - Technical Capability/Specifications Factor 2 - Price (b) Basis for Award: Award of this contract shall be made on a competitive best value basis using "Lowest Price, Technically Acceptable (LPTA)" approach. Evaluation will be made to identify all Offerors whose quotes are technically acceptable in accordance with this RFQ and the evaluation criteria set forth below. Award will be made to the Offeror from the pool of technically acceptable quotes, whose price is the lowest. The Offerors' quotes will be evaluated to ensure the Government receives a technically acceptable quote at a fair and reasonable price. Technical acceptability will be determined by evaluating the following non-price factor: Factor 1 - Technical Capability/Specifications The Government evaluators will not assume the Offeror possesses the product/equipment unless specified in the quote. After the above non-price factor is rated individually, an overall rating will be assigned collectively to the factor. If the above non-price evaluation factor receives an individual rating of "Unacceptable", the collective overall rating will also be "Unacceptable". Only proposals receiving an overall rating of "Acceptable" will be considered for award. (c) Evaluation Criteria: The Offeror's quote for this requirement will be evaluated using the following criteria. An evaluation for technical acceptability will be made to ensure satisfactory responsiveness to the requirements set for in this RFQ. The non-price factor will be rated "Acceptable" or "Unacceptable" using the following rating standards: Factor 1. Technical Capability/Specification: The Offeror's quote shall be evaluated to the degree to which the Offeror demonstrates (1) an understanding of the requirement; (2) the Offeror is capable of providing the required brand name or equal products/equipment that meet the salient characteristics described in the MECs identified in Table 1; and (3) the Offeror is capable of delivering the products/equipment within the stated delivery schedule contained within this RFQ. All quotations submitted with "equal" products/equipment shall provide a matrix which correlates to the MECs identified in Table 1 of the RFQ. Factor 2. Price: The Offeror's proposed price shall be evaluated separately from the non-price evaluation factor. Price quote evaluation is to determine whether the Offeror's proposed price is fair and reasonable in accordance with FAR 13.106-3. Price analysis will be used to determine the total evaluated price to support the selection of the lowest priced, technically acceptable Offeror. Rating DescriptionAcceptable Proposal (Quote) clearly meets the minimum requirements of the solicitation (RFQ).Unacceptable Proposal (Quote) does not clearly meet the minimum requirements of the solicitation (RFQ). (d) 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.

(End of Provision) (a) The Government will award a contract resulting from this solicitation to the responsible offeror whose offer conforming to the solicitation will be most advantageous to the Government, price and other factors considered. The following factors shall be used to evaluate offers: 1) Technical Acceptability2) Past Performance3) Price (b) Basis for Award & Evaluation This will be a Lowest Priced/Technically Acceptable (LPTA) procurement. The Government intends to evaluate quotations and award a contract without discussions with Offerors. The Government reserves the right to conduct discussions if the Contracting Officer later determines them to be necessary. The LPTA process is selected as appropriate for this acquisition because the best value is expected to result from selection of the technically acceptable quotation with the lowest evaluated price. An overall technical rating must be at least "ACCEPTABLE" in order to be eligible for award. An "UNACCEPTABLE" rating, results in the technical quotation being rated "UNACCEPTABLE" unless corrected through discussions. An overall technical rating of "UNACCEPTABLE" makes a quotation ineligible for award. The Government reserves the right to make no award as a result of this solicitation. This requirement is going out as Brand Name Or Equal. An offeror is expected to submit sufficient information in response to the RFQ to allow for the evaluation of his/her quotation. It is the Offerors responsibility to provide information to prove that their item is "Or Equal" to the required Brand. Each of the evaluation factors will be rated as follows: Factor 1 - Technical Acceptability: The Government will evaluate the offeror's capabilities to provide the brand name or Equal as required per Attachment 1. The supplies recommended by the contractor will be evaluated in how they satisfy all of the Government's requirements as outlined in the Statement of Non-Availability (SON) and Minimum Essential Characteristics (MECs). The Offeror's proposal shall include all required documentation detailed in the list below. The following documents shall be submitted as part of the Technical Acceptability factor. Failure to provide the following documents may result in a Technically Unacceptable proposal rating. • Equipment Support Kit Lists. • Equipment Repairable Items List. • Equipment Commercial Service Manual. • Equipment Commercial Operation/Instruction Manual. • Equipment Consumable/Durable Support Items List. • Detailed Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for all materials used in manufacturer and/or production of the CPPW.• Certified report of swatch testing of materiel. Table A-1. Technical Acceptable/Unacceptable RatingsRating DescriptionAcceptable Proposal clearly meets the requirements of the RFQ.Unacceptable Proposal does not clearly meet the requirements of the RFQ. Factor 2 - Past Performance: Offeror's past performance references' questionaires, submitted directly from their references, will be reviewed and considered in assigning a rating. Offerors are reminded that while the Government may elect to consider data obtained from other sources, the burden of demonstrating relevancy, recency, and quality of the past performance rests with the Offeror. Other sources available to the Government include, but are not limited to, the Past Performance Information Retrieval System (PPIRS) and Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System (FAPIIS). In the case of an Offeror without a record of recent/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 in accordance with FAR 15.305(a)(2)(iv). Therefore, the Offeror shall be determined to have unknown past performance. In the context of Acceptability/Unacceptability, "Unknown" shall be considered "Acceptable." Past Performance Evaluation RatingsRating DescriptionAcceptable 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.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. Factor 3 - Price: (all CLINs shall be priced per Attachment 1) Offerors' price proposals will be evaluated to determine whether the price is complete, fair and reasonable. The Government's determination that the proposed price is fair and reasonable will be based on price evaluation and analysis using the techniques in FAR 15.305(1), which provides that comparison of the proposed prices will usually satisfy the requirement for price analysis. (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. 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. (End of provision) 52.212-3 OFFEROR REPRESENTATIONS AND CERTIFICATIONS--COMMERCIAL ITEMS (NOV 2015) The Offeror shall complete only paragraph (b) of this provision if the Offeror has completed the annual representations and certification electronically via the System for Award Management (SAM) Web site accessed through http://www.acquisition.gov.

The following factors shall be used to evaluate offers: 1) Technical Capabilities2) Price3) Past Performance 4) Small Business Subcontracting Plan (b) Basis for Award & Evaluation This will be Lowest Priced/Technically Acceptable (LPTA) procurement. The Government intends to evaluate quotations and award a contract without discussions with Offerors. The Government reserves the right to conduct discussions if the Contracting Officer later determines them to be necessary. The LPTA process is selected as appropriate for this acquisition because the best value is expected to result from selection of the technically acceptable quotation with the lowest evaluated price. An overall technical rating must be at least "ACCEPTABLE" in order to be eligible for award. An "UNACCEPTABLE" rating, results in the technical quotation being rated "UNACCEPTABLE" unless corrected through discussions. An overall technical rating of "UNACCEPTABLE" makes a quotation ineligible for award. The Government reserves the right to make no award as a result of this solicitation. This requirement is going out as Brand Name ONLY. An offeror is expected to submit sufficient information in response to the RFQ to allow for the evaluation of his/her quotation. It is the Offerors responsibility to provide information to prove that their item is "Or Equal" to the required Brand. Each of the evaluation factors will be rated as follows: Factor 1 - Technical Capabilities: The Government will evaluate the offeror's capabilities to provide the Philips brand name as required per the CLINs. Table A-1. Technical Acceptable/Unacceptable RatingsRating DescriptionAcceptable Proposal clearly meets the requirements of the RFQ.Unacceptable Proposal does not clearly meet the requirements of the RFQ. Factor 2 - Price Offerors' price proposals will be evaluated to determine whether the price is complete, fair and reasonable. The Government's determination that the proposed price is fair and reasonable will be based on price evaluation and analysis using the techniques in FAR 15.305(1), which provides that comparison of the proposed prices will usually satisfy the requirement for price analysis. (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. 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. Factor 3 - Past Performance Past Performance Evaluation Ratings Rating DescriptionAcceptable Based on the Offeror's performance record, the Government has a reasonableexpectation that the Offeror will successfully perform the required effort, or theOfferor's performance record is unknown. Unacceptable Based on the Offeror's performance record, the Government does not have areasonable expectation that the Offeror will be able to successfully perform therequired effort.   Factor 4 - Small Business Subcontracting Plan All offerors (both large and small businesses) will be evaluated on the level of small business commitment that they are demonstrating for the proposed acquisition, and their level of commitment to utilizing small businesses in performance of prior contracts. The small business participation plan factor will be evaluated on an "Acceptable (Pass)" or "Unacceptable (Fail)" basis and one of these ratings will be assigned accordingly. The small business plan will be evaluated on the following: (1) The extent to which such firms are specifically identified in proposals; (2) The extent of commitment to use such firms (for example, enforceable commitments are to be weighted more heavily than non-enforceable ones); (3) The complexity and variety of the work small firms are to perform. An acceptable rating will consist of 5% or more small business participation. Rating Standards for Small Business Participation Plan Raing DefinitionAcceptable (Pass) Offeror's level of small business commitment in current proposal or utilization of small businesses in performance of prior contracts is meaningful. Unacceptable (Fail) Offeror's level of small business commitment in current proposal or utilization of small businesses in performance of prior contracts is not meaningful. *To Receive an acceptable rating, an offeror must include small business participation percentage of at least 5%.

(i) Taxes are considered delinquent if both of the following criteria apply: (A) The tax liability is finally determined. The liability is finally determined if it has been assessed. A liability is not finally determined if there is a pending administrative or judicial challenge. In the case of a judicial challenge to the liability, the liability is not finally determined until all judicial appeal rights have been exhausted. (B) The taxpayer is delinquent in making payment. A taxpayer is delinquent if the taxpayer has failed to pay the tax liability when full payment was due and required. A taxpayer is not delinquent in cases where enforced collection action is precluded. (ii) Examples. (A) The taxpayer has received a statutory notice of deficiency, under I.R.C. §6212, which entitles the taxpayer to seek Tax Court review of a proposed tax deficiency. This is not a delinquent tax because it is not a final tax liability. Should the taxpayer seek Tax Court review, this will not be a final tax liability until the taxpayer has exercised all judicial appeal rights. (B) The IRS has filed a notice of Federal tax lien with respect to an assessed tax liability, and the taxpayer has been issued a notice under I.R.C. §6320 entitling the taxpayer to request a hearing with the IRS Office of Appeals contesting the lien filing, and to further appeal to the Tax Court if the IRS determines to sustain the lien filing. In the course of the hearing, the taxpayer is entitled to contest the underlying tax liability because the taxpayer has had no prior opportunity to contest the liability. This is not a delinquent tax because it is not a final tax liability. Should the taxpayer seek tax court review, this will not be a final tax liability until the taxpayer has exercised all judicial appeal rights. (C) The taxpayer has entered into an installment agreement pursuant to I.R.C. §6159. The taxpayer is making timely payments and is in full compliance with the agreement terms. The taxpayer is not delinquent because the taxpayer is not currently required to make full payment. (D) The taxpayer has filed for bankruptcy protection. The taxpayer is not delinquent because enforced collection action is stayed under 11 U.S.C. §362 (the Bankruptcy Code). (i) Certification Regarding Knowledge of Child Labor for Listed End Products (Executive Order 13126).

(End of provision) 52.212-2 EVALUATION--COMMERCIAL ITEMS (OCT 2014) (a) The Government will award a contract resulting from this solicitation to the responsible offeror whose offer conforming to the solicitation will be most advantageous to the Government, price and other factors considered. The following factors shall be used to evaluate offers: The Lowest Price Technically Acceptable (LPTA) process is selected as appropriate for this acquisition because the best value is expected to result from the selection of the technically acceptable proposal with the lowest evaluated price(s). For purposes of this requirement, LPTA is defined as any technically acceptable offer for which the proposed pricing is determined fair and reasonable. Please note that if upon evaluation, an Offeror is deemed "Unacceptable" for either Technical or Price, it will be excluded from award consideration. The Government intends to evaluate the proposal and award a firm fixed price contract without discussions to the responsible offeror whose offer conforming to the solicitation will be most advantageous to the Government, price and other factors considered. However, the Government reserves the right to conduct discussions if the Contracting Officer later determines them to be necessary in accordance with FAR 15.306. Therefore, the Offeror's initial proposal should contain its best terms from both price and technical standpoint. The awards will be made based on the LPTA source selection process. The following factors shall be used to evaluate offers: Factor 1 - Technical Acceptability (Capability to meet the contract requirements as specified in the MECs) Factor 2 - Price (Completeness and Reasonableness) Each of the evaluation factors will be rated as follows: 1. Factor 1 - Technical Acceptability A technically acceptable proposal will demonstrate that the Offeror has a clear understanding of the requirements outlined in the MECs. The Offeror's proposal shall include all required documentation detailed in the instructions to offerors. 2. Factor 2 - Price The offeror will be evaluated for fairness, reasonableness and completeness. a. Reasonableness - The offeror's Price will be evaluated separately to determine the degree to which the proposed prices compare to the prices a reasonable prudent person would expect to incur for the same or similar equipment. b.Completeness- The offeror's Price proposal will be examined to ensure that the requirements stated in the Instructions to Offerors for price proposals have been completed The cost/price will be evaluated separately from all non-cost/price factors. The objective of price analysis is to ensure that the final agreed-to price is fair and reasonable in accordance with FAR 12.209 and FAR 15.404-1(b). Offerors' price proposals will be evaluated to determine whether the price is complete, fair and reasonable. The Government's determination that the proposed price is fair and reasonable will be based on price evaluation and analysis using the techniques in FAR 15.305(1), which provides that comparison of the proposed prices will usually satisfy the requirement for price analysis. 3. Rating Standards for the Non-Cost/Price Factors and Definitions 3.1. Technical Ratings Rating Description Acceptable Proposal clearly meets the minimum requirements of the solicitation. Unacceptable Proposal does not clearly meet the minimum requirements of the solicitation.

(End of Provision) (a) The Government will award a contract resulting from this solicitation to the responsible offeror whose offer conforming to the solicitation will be most advantageous to the Government, price and other factors considered. The following factors shall be used to evaluate offers: 1) Technical Acceptability2) Past Performance3) Price (b) Basis for Award & Evaluation This will be a Lowest Priced/Technically Acceptable (LPTA) procurement. The Government intends to evaluate quotations and award a contract without discussions with Offerors. The Government reserves the right to conduct discussions if the Contracting Officer later determines them to be necessary. The LPTA process is selected as appropriate for this acquisition because the best value is expected to result from selection of the technically acceptable quotation with the lowest evaluated price. An overall technical rating must be at least "ACCEPTABLE" in order to be eligible for award. An "UNACCEPTABLE" rating, results in the technical quotation being rated "UNACCEPTABLE" unless corrected through discussions. An overall technical rating of "UNACCEPTABLE" makes a quotation ineligible for award. The Government reserves the right to make no award as a result of this solicitation. This requirement is going out as Brand Name Or Equal. An offeror is expected to submit sufficient information in response to the RFQ to allow for the evaluation of his/her quotation. It is the Offerors responsibility to provide information to prove that their item is "Or Equal" to the required Brand. Each of the evaluation factors will be rated as follows: Factor 1 - Technical Acceptability: The Government will evaluate the offeror's capabilities to provide the brand name or Equal as required per Attachment 1. The supplies recommended by the contractor will be evaluated in how they satisfy all of the Government's requirements as outlined in the Statement of Non-Availability (SON) and Minimum Essential Characteristics (MECs). The Offeror's proposal shall include all required documentation detailed in the list below. The following documents shall be submitted as part of the Technical Acceptability factor. Failure to provide the following documents may result in a Technically Unacceptable proposal rating. • Equipment Support Kit Lists. • Equipment Repairable Items List. • Equipment Commercial Service Manual. • Equipment Commercial Operation/Instruction Manual. • Equipment Consumable/Durable Support Items List. • Detailed Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for all materials used in manufacturer and/or production of the CPPW.• Certified report of swatch testing of materiel. Table A-1. Technical Acceptable/Unacceptable RatingsRating DescriptionAcceptable Proposal clearly meets the requirements of the RFQ.Unacceptable Proposal does not clearly meet the requirements of the RFQ. Factor 2 - Past Performance: Offeror's past performance references' questionaires, submitted directly from their references, will be reviewed and considered in assigning a rating. Offerors are reminded that while the Government may elect to consider data obtained from other sources, the burden of demonstrating relevancy, recency, and quality of the past performance rests with the Offeror. Other sources available to the Government include, but are not limited to, the Past Performance Information Retrieval System (PPIRS) and Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System (FAPIIS). In the case of an Offeror without a record of recent/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 in accordance with FAR 15.305(a)(2)(iv). Therefore, the Offeror shall be determined to have unknown past performance. In the context of Acceptability/Unacceptability, "Unknown" shall be considered "Acceptable." Past Performance Evaluation RatingsRating DescriptionAcceptable 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.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. Factor 3 - Price: (all CLINs shall be priced per Attachment 1) Offerors' price proposals will be evaluated to determine whether the price is complete, fair and reasonable. The Government's determination that the proposed price is fair and reasonable will be based on price evaluation and analysis using the techniques in FAR 15.305(1), which provides that comparison of the proposed prices will usually satisfy the requirement for price analysis. (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. 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.
