SELECTION CRITERIA
Firms responding to this synopsis will be evaluated to determine the most highly qualified firms to perform the required services in accordance with the selection criteria contained in this synopsis.  Failure to comply with instructions, or provide complete information may affect the firm’s evaluation or disqualify the firm from further consideration.  Criteria are listed in descending order of importance.
1.	Specialized Recent Relevant Experience/Technical Competence.
2.	Professional Qualifications of the Key Personnel
3.	Capacity to Accomplish Work and Ability to Accomplish Multiple Projects Concurrently
4.	Past Performance on Relevant Contracts

Projects submitted in the SF-330 shall be projects completed by the prime firm and any team subconsultant.  Projects not performed by the prime firm and any team subconsultant will be excluded from further consideration. It is anticipated that interviews for slated firms will be conducted in Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, HI.
Firms that are submitting information as a Joint Venture (JV) or a Limited Liability Company (LLC) shall submit their JV Agreement and/or LLC Operating Agreement as an attachment.
Failure to do so will result in the rejection of the SF330 from further consideration.    In addition, please ensure that the agreements address the following:
a.  A detailed statement outlining the following in terms of percentages where appropriate:
(1)  The relationship of the team/partners/parties in terms of business ownership, capital contribution, profit distribution or loss sharing.
(2)  The management approach in terms of who will conduct, direct, supervise, and control.
(3)  The structure and decision-making responsibilities of the partners/parties in terms of who will control the manner and method of performance of work.
(4)  Identify (by name and title) the personnel having the authority to legally bind the partners/parties (including authority to execute the contract documents).
b.
A list of partners/parties, to include company name, DUNS and CAGE numbers, address, point of contact, Email address, phone number and facsimile number.
If the firm is a JV, information regarding the performance of recent, relevant projects shall be submitted to demonstrate the capabilities of the joint venture entity; however, if there is an insufficient amount of or no information relevant to the joint venture, information pertaining to each joint venture team member/partner shall be submitted.
If a project submitted to demonstrate experience and past performance was performed by a JV, and not all JV team members/partners that performed the work remain on the JV team responding to this synopsis, the submission should only address the work performed by team members/partners to the JV responding to this synopsis.
(For instance, if a past performance project was performed by a JV with partners A, B, C, and D and the JV is now composed of partners A, C, D, and E, the description of experience and past performance on the project should focus on the work performed by partners A, C, and D only). Likewise, if the JV firm or one of its team members/partners worked as a subcontractor on a project submitted to establish experience and past performance, the description should clearly describe the roles and responsibilities and work actually performed by the JV firm or team member/partner, rather than the work performed by the prime contractor or other subcontractors on the project as a whole. The submission should also state the percentage of the total project value performed under the subcontract.
If the project description does not clearly delineate the work performed and the percentage of the total contract performed by the JV or its team members/partners responding to this solicitation, the project may be eliminated from consideration due to the inability to accurately assess relevance and experience.
If a firm is utilizing or relying on experience or past performance information from affiliates/subsidiaries/parent companies/LLC/LTD member companies (where the name of the entity is not exactly as stated on the SF330), the proposal shall clearly demonstrate that the affiliate/subsidiary/parent firm/LLC/LTD member companies will have meaningful involvement in the performance of the contract in order for the experience,  past performance, and/or key personnel information of the affiliate/subsidiary/parent firm/LLC/LTD member companies to be considered.
The proposal shall state the specific resources (e.g., workforce, management, facilities, or other resources) that the affiliate/subsidiary/parent/LLC/LTD member companies will commit toward the performance of the contract.  If meaningful involvement is not demonstrated in the proposal, the affiliate, subsidiary or parent company’s experience or past performance and/or key personnel information will not be considered.
A subcontractor’s experience and past performance will not be given the same level of consideration as that of either a prime contractor or a joint venture member/partner because there is no direct legal relationship between the Government and a subcontractor.
Criterion 1- Specialized Recent Relevant Experience/Technical Competence
Basis of Evaluation:  SF330s shall be evaluated on specialized experience on recent, relevant projects for the prime firm and proposed team subcontractors in performing multiple projects involving field investigations and preparing studies/analysis/work plans/remediation oversight for environmental restoration projects and other technical support services consistent with the intended scope in Attachment A.
