(3) The overall ranking of all offerors, when any ranking was developed by the agency during source selection.(4) A summary of rationale for award;(5) For acquisitions of commercial items, the make and model of the item to be delivered by the successful offeror.(6) Reasonable responses to relevant questions posed by the debriefed offeror as to whether source-selection procedures set forth in the solicitation, applicable regulations, and other applicable authorities were followed by the agency.(End of Provision) ADDENDA TO 52.212-2, Evaluation -- Commercial Items (Jan 1999) (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 separately 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 requirement. 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 RatingsRating DescriptionAcceptable Quote clearly meets the minimumrequirements of the solicitation.Unacceptable Quote does not clearly meet the minimumrequirements 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 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. (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 whominformation on past performance is not available or so sparse that no meaningful pastperformance 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" shall 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.(End of Provision)The following Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) provisions and clauses apply to this solicitation and are incorporated by reference:- FAR 52.204-7, System for Award Management- FAR 52.204-13, System for Award Management- FAR 52.212-3, Offeror Representation and Certifications--Commercial Items- FAR 52.212-4, Contract Terms and Conditions--Commercial Items- FAR 52.212-5, Contract Terms and Conditions Required to Implement Statutes Or Executive Orders--Commercial Items Within FAR 52.212-5, the following provisions and clauses are incorporated by text: FAR 52.204-10, Reporting Executive Compensation and First-Tier Subcontract AwardsFAR 52.209-6, Protecting the Government's InterestFAR 52.219-6, Notice of Total Small Business Set-AsideFAR 52.219-14, Limitations on SubcontractingFAR 52.219-28, Post-Award Small Business Program RerepresentationFAR 52.222-3, Convict LaborFAR 52.222-19, Child Labor-Cooperation with Authorities and RemediesFAR 52.222-21, Prohibition of Segregated FacilitiesFAR 52.222-26, Equal OpportunityFAR 52.222-36, Affirmative Action for Workers with DisabilitiesFAR 52.222-50, Combating Trafficking in Persons FAR 52.223-18, Encouraging Contractor Policies to Ban Text Messaging While DrivingFAR 52.225-3, Alternate I (Mar 2012), Buy American Act--Free Trade AgreementsFAR 52.225-13, Restrictions on Certain Foreign PurchasesFAR 52.232-33, Payment by Electronic Funds Transfer--System for Award ManagementFAR 52.222-41, Service Contract Labor StandardsFAR 52.222-42, Statement of Equivalent Rates for Federal HiresFAR 52.222-43, Fair Labor Standards Act and Service Contract Labor Standards -- Price Adjustment (Multiple Year and Option Contracts) FAR 52.222-17, Nondisplacement of Qualified Workers - FAR 52.217-5, Evalution of Options - FAR 52.217-8, Option to Extend Services - FAR 52.217-9, Option to Extend the Term of the Contract - FAR 52.222-17, Nondisplacement of Qualified Workers - FAR 52.222-41, Service Contract Act- FAR 52.222-42, Statement of Equivalent Rates for Federal Hires - FAR 52.222-55, Minimum Wages Under Executive Order 13658- FAR 52.219-1, Small Business Program Representations- FAR 52.232-40, Providing Accelerated Payments to Small Business Subcontractors- FAR 52.237-2, Protection of Government Buildings, Equipment, and Vegetation- FAR 52.247-34, F.O.B.

The system would allow the users to simultaneously and continuously monitor and record the magnitude of the X, Y and Z components of the E-field at eight discrete points in free space from a remote location. Each E-field probe is powered by a laser and delivers the information to the recording system over a long distance via fiber optic cables, with negligible power losses. The system is easily expandable in the future by cascading more E-field probes, laser power supplies and controllers together. The measuring devices in the product (the E-field probes) must be powered by and communicate through laser light via fiber optic cables. The measurements must be accurate within +/- 0.5 V/m at least up to 2GHz and be capable of measuring up to 6GHz. The system must be able to read an E-field between 1.0 and 500V/m. The E-field probes must be capable of delivering the measurements to the display/recorder up to 100 meters away. They must also compensate for temperature changes. The measurements must be delivered from 8 discrete points in free space simultaneously and without interruption from battery depletion. The system must provide the X, Y and Z components of the E-field from each E-field probe to the user. The system must include enough cable, adapters and software to record/monitor the eight readings 150 ft away from the measurement site. The user must be able to monitor the readings real-time from the system itself without additional equipment.

(End of Provision) ADDENDA TO 52.212-2, Evaluation -- Commercial Items (Jan 1999) (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" shall 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.

(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.
