Firms failing to provide projects from all joint venture partners will be considered to have not met the requirements of the criterion.
Projects shall be submitted on the SF 330 at Part I, Section F and shall be completed projects.  Projects not completed will be excluded from evaluation consideration.  For submittal purposes, a task order on an IDIQ contract is considered a project, as is a stand-alone contract award.  Do not submit an IDIQ contract as an example project.  Instead, list relevant task orders or stand-alone contract awards that fit within the definition above.  The Government will not evaluate information provided for an IDIQ contract.  Examples of project work submitted that do not conform to this requirement will not be evaluated.
Failure to provide requested data, accessible points of contact, or valid phone numbers may result in a firm being considered less qualified.

Specific disciplines that must be included in key personnel are quality control, task order managers, project managers, and architects.   Key personnel, including sub-consultants, must be U. S. citizens and able to obtain security clearances as required.
Firms may be considered more favorably by including professional qualifications, competence, and experience, including participation in example projects, for the following disciplines: Civil, Structural, Mechanical, Electrical, Fire Protection, Geotechnical, Cost Engineer, Lighting Designer, Landscape Architect, and Interior Design.

Sufficient information to determine the date of completion of the project must be included in the project description or the project will not be considered.  If the project submitted was a design-bid-build (full design), then the design must be complete.  If the project was design-build, the design-build construction contract must be complete.  If more than the maximum number of projects is submitted, the Government will not evaluate projects beyond the maximum number specified in the submission requirements and projects will be evaluated in the order in which they are presented within the SF 330.
All projects provided in the SF 330 must be completed by the office/branch/regional office/individual team member actually proposed to manage and perform work under this contract.
Projects not meeting this requirement will be excluded from consideration in the evaluation.  To enable verification, firms should include the DUNS number along with each firm name in the SF 330 Part I, Section F, block 25, “Firm Name” Include a contract number or project identification number in block 21.

If a project was performed by a joint venture, and not all joint venture partners are on the team proposed for this contract, the firm/team should specifically address the work performed by the joint venture partner offering/teaming on this contract.  Likewise, if the firm/team member worked as a subcontractor on a project, the description should clearly describe the work actually performed by the firm/team member proposed for this contract and the roles and responsibilities of each on the project, rather than the work performed on the project as a whole.  If the project description does not clearly delineate the work performed by the entity/entities offering/teaming on this contract, the project could be eliminated from consideration.
NOTE: If the firm is a joint venture, projects performed by the joint venture should be submitted; however, if there are no projects performed by the joint venture, projects must be submitted for each joint venture partner, not to exceed a total of eight projects.
Firms failing to provide projects from all joint venture partners will be considered to have not met the requirements of the criterion.
Projects shall be submitted on the SF 330 at Part I, Section F and shall be completed projects.  Projects not completed will be excluded from evaluation consideration.  For submittal purposes, a task order on an IDIQ contract is considered a project, as is a stand-alone contract award.  Do not submit an IDIQ contract as an example project.  Instead, list relevant task orders or stand-alone contract awards that fit within the definition above.  The Government will not evaluate information provided for an IDIQ contract.  Examples of project work submitted that do not conform to this requirement will not be evaluated.
Failure to provide requested data, accessible points of contact, or valid phone numbers may result in a firm being considered less qualified.
