The Government intends to evaluate quotes/offers and make award without discussions with offerors (except clarifications as described in FAR 15.306(a)).

Do not assume you will have the opportunity to clarify, discuss or revise your quote/offer. Offerors may, at the discretion of the Government, be asked to provide more information and clarification regarding their offer/quote. Request for such information does not constitute discussions. The Government reserves the right to conduct discussions if the Contracting Officer later determines them to be necessary. The Government intends to make a single, Firm-Fixed Price award. Any response to this synopsis/solicitation will be considered a "quotation".
"Offer" means a response to a solicitation that, if accepted, would bind the offeror to perform the resultant contract.

FAR 13.004 -- Legal Effect of Quotations
(a) A quotation is not an offer and, consequently, cannot be accepted by the Government to form a binding contract. Therefore, issuance by the Government of an order in response to a supplier's quotation does not establish a contract. The order is an offer by the Government to the supplier to buy certain supplies or services upon specified terms and conditions. A contract is established when the supplier accepts the offer.
(b) When appropriate, the contracting officer may ask the supplier to indicate acceptance of an order by notification to the Government, preferably in writing, as defined at 2.101. In other circumstances, the supplier may indicate acceptance by furnishing the supplies or services ordered or by proceeding with the work to the point where substantial performance has occurred.
(c) If the Government issues an order resulting from a quotation, the Government may (by written notice to the supplier, at any time before acceptance occurs) withdraw, amend, or cancel its offer. (See 13.302-4 for procedures on termination or cancellation of purchase orders.)
Exchanges of Information
FAR 15.201(f) General information about agency mission needs and future requirements may be disclosed at any time. After release of the solicitation, the contracting officer MUST be the focal point of any exchange with potential offerors. When specific information about a proposed acquisition that would be necessary for the preparation of proposals is disclosed to one or more potential offerors, that information must be made available to the public as soon as practicable, but no later than the next general release of information, in order to avoid creating an unfair competitive advantage.
Terms and Conditions:Offerors must be actively registered on the Systems for Award Management database (SAM). Information concerning SAM requirements may be viewed via the Internet at https://www.sam.gov/portal/public/SAM/ or by calling the SAM Registration Center at 866-606-8220. Only contractors who are registered in the Systems for Award Management (SAM) can be awarded a contract. Offerors must have electronic funds transfer (EFT) capability. Offerors' proposals shall be valid for a minimum of 30 days to be acknowledged in the offerors' proposal.
