The following factors shall be used to evaluate offers: 1. BASIS FOR AWARD (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 tradeoff 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 CapabilityFactor 2 - ExperienceFactor 3 - Past PerformanceFactor 4 - Price 1.4. Government evaluators 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 an overall rating of "Marginal" for Factors 1 and 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 ITS Telemetry Acquisition system at a Government laboratory. 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 telemetry system in government 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 ITS Telemetry Acquisition System; preventive maintenance of a ITS Telemetry system; corrective maintenance (including spare part) of a ITS Telemetry system; and information technology and management experience of maintaining a ITS Telemetry Acquisition 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 referenceii. Name of the point of contact (POC) familiar with contract performanceiii. POC telephone numberiv. POC email addressv. Contract numbervi. Period of performancevii. 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 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 TableRating DescriptionOutstanding 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 Best Value Tradeoff Evaluation Standard Definitions 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 15.001Discussions 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 contractor 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 contracts) for degradation of performance, the need for increased Government oversight, and the likelihood of unsuccessful contract performance.Significant Strength A significant strength appreciably enhances the merit of a proposal or appreciably increases the probability of successful contract performance.Significant Weakness A flaw that appreciably increases the risk of unsuccessful contract performance. See FAR 15.001.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 the proposal that increases the risk of unsuccessful contract performance. See FAR 15.001.¬ 3.3.
