Note: Failure to address each of the aforementioned criteria may be reason for non- advancement. Secondary Selection Criteria for the Awards Factor 1 - The Small Business Participation Plan (SBPP) will be a secondary criterion and will be evaluated in accordance EP-715-1-7. The extent of participation of Small Business (SB), Small Disadvantaged Business (SDB), Woman Owned Small Business (WOSB), HUBZONE, SDVOSBs, Veteran Owned Business (VOSB) and Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU), and Minority Institutions (MI) will be measured as a percentage of the total anticipated contract effort, regardless of whether the SB, SDB, WOSB, SDVSOB, VOSB, HUBZONE, HBCU or MI is a prime contractor, subcontractor, or joint venture partner. As a secondary criterion, this will not be applied by a pre-selection board, and will only be used by a selection board as a "tie-breaker," if necessary, in ranking the most highly qualified firms. All A/E firms responding to the synopsis shall be required to submit a separate SBPP proposing participation goals using their best effort.

The evaluation of past performance will be based on information provided through CPARS and may include other information provided by the firm, customer inquiries, Government databases, and other information available to the Government including information from the points of contact provided by the offeror. Failure to provide requested data, accessible points of contact, or valid phone numbers may result in a firm being considered less qualified.
