Typing shall not be less than 11 pitch.Addenda to FAR 52.212-2, Evaluation - Commercial Items BASIS FOR CONTRACT AWARD: Offers will be evaluated IAW FAR 15.101-2, Lowest Price Technically Acceptable (LPTA) source selection process. It is the intent of the Government to issue a single award which will be made to the Offeror who is deemed responsible and responsive, that reflects a complete understanding of the specifications and drawings in the Request for Quotation and is judged to represent the best value to the U.S. Government based on selection of the technically acceptable offer with the lowest evaluated price. The U.S. Government reserves the right to refrain from awarding to any contractor in the event that all Offerors progressing beyond the technically acceptable evaluation are determined to have offered pricing that is not considered realistic, reasonable, or complete. To arrive at a decision, the Source Selection Authority (SSA) will integrate the source selection team's evaluations of the factors and sub factors described in the paragraphs that follow. These factors are the uniform baseline against which each Offeror's quotation is compared to determine the confidence the U.S. Government has that the Offeror will be able to satisfactorily accomplish all work required. They establish the level an Offeror's quotation must meet in any area, factor, or element in order to be judged acceptable. To be eligible for award, a quotation must meet all technical requirements, conform to all required terms and conditions, and include all information required. A. Evaluation Process: 1. Initially, all offers shall undergo a technical evaluation on an acceptable/unacceptable basis. 2. Then, all technically acceptable quotations will be ranked in order of price. 3. Lastly, the lowest priced, technically acceptable, quotation shall undergo a past performance evaluation to assess the the Offeror's probability of meeting the minimum past performance solicitation requirements. Past performance will also be rated on an acceptable/unacceptable basis. 3. If the lowest priced, technically acceptable offer does not receive an acceptable past performance assessment rating, the process will continue until an Offer is identified as being the lowest priced offer with acceptable ratings for both technical and past performance subfactors. 4. Prior to award, a responsibility determination will be made as described in FAR Part 9. B. Evaluation Criteria: 1. PRICE EVALUATION: For award purposes, the Government will evaluate the total price in the Schedule (Attachment #9 Schedule & Acknowledgement). The Government may determine an offer unacceptable if the proposed prices are materially unbalanced, which is defined as significantly understated or overstated in relation to the actual cost of the item or when the price is determined not to be fair and reasonable. Proposed prices will become fixed prices on the contract. a. The Contracting Officer has determined there is a high probability of adequate price competition in this acquisition. Upon examination of the initial offers, the Contracting Officer will review this determination and if, in the Contracting Officer's opinion, adequate price competition exists, no additional cost/price information will be requested. However, if at any time during this competition the Contracting Officer determines that adequate price competition no longer exists, Offeror's may be required to submit information to the extent necessary for the Contracting Officer to determine the reasonableness of price.2. EVALUATING TECHNICAL: a. Technical quotations will be evaluated on an acceptable/unacceptable basis. b. The minimum level of acceptability for each technical subfactor is as follows: i. SCHEDULE: The Schedule shall state the project's estimated period of performance in terms of business days (Monday-Friday, eight (8) hour shifts) and contain all phases of work for both structures. Additionally, the schedule must show a synchronized effort with performance occurring simultaneously on both structures. In no event will either site show abandondment exceeding seven (7) working days. ii. DEMOLITION PLAN: The Demolition Plan shall show a calculated and logical approach for completed the identified phases below in accordance with the Statement of Work.(i) Site Preparation (ii) Building Demolition (iii) Asphalt/Walkway Demolition (if required) (vi) Foundation Removal(v) Utility Demolition and Removal (vi) Site Restoration iii. SAFETY PLAN: The Saftey Plan shall identify the personal protective equipment (PPE), OSHA training/certification, and any other processes the firm will utilize over the course of this project. iv. ABATEMENT PLAN: The Abatement Plan shall identify the firm's plan for remediating all identified hazardous material in cooperation with applicable state and federal guidelines. Required permits/certifications shall also be identified in the Offeror's abatement plan. v. DISPOSAL PLAN: The Disposal Plan shall identify the firm's detailed processes for recycling, salvage, and general waste. Disposal of hazardous waste may be addressed under the abatement plan, but it must be identified in either the abatement plan or this section of the Offeror's technical package. The plan must be in accordance with all local, state, and federal regulations. c. If the quotation received is determined to be unacceptable , the Offeror will be excluded from further award consideration. d. The Technical Evaluation Team will rate the technical submissions according to the chart listed below: RATING DEFINITION Acceptable: Quotation meets the requirements of the solicitation. Unacceptable: Quotation does not meet the requirements of the solicitation.   3. EVALUATING PAST PERFORMANCE a. Past performance information received from completed questionnaires will initially be evaulated to determine whether the present/past performance is recent, and relevant or not relevant to this effort. In order for a present/past effort to be considered recent, performance must have ocurred within five (5) years of the issuance of this solicitation. Relevant performance includes performance of efforts that are similar in scope, magnitude and complexity on demolition projects sharing similar phases of work, but not limited to, structural demolition, harzardous material abatement, utility work, and site grading/restoration with a total contract value of at least $25,000.00. b. Past performance information determined to be both recent and relevant will then be evaluated on how well the Offeror performed on those efforts. Based on the ratings for each area addressed in the questionnaire, a performance rating will be assigned according to the chart listed: RATING DEFINITION Acceptable: Based on the Offeror's performance record, the Governemtn has a reasonable expectation that the Offeror will successfully perform the required effort, or the Offeror's performance record is unknown. Unacceptable: Based on the Offeror's performance record, the Government does not have a reasonable expectation that the Offeror will successfully perform the required effort c. Offeror's will be provided the opportunity to respond to adverse past performance information identified in a completed questionnaire. Adverse past performance information is any rating or comment that is less than satisfactory. d. In the case of an offeror without a record of relevant past performance or forwhom information on past performance is not available or so sparse that nomeaningful past performance rating can be reasonably assigned, the offeror may notbe evaluated favorably or unfavorably on past performance (see FAR 15.305(a)(2)(iv)). Therefore, the offeror shall be determined to have unknown (or "neutral")past performance. In the context of acceptability/unacceptability, a neutral ratingshall be considered "acceptable" in accordance with Department of Defense (DoD) source selection procedures. C. The Government reserves the right to award a contract to other than the lowest priced Offeror if the lowest priced Offeror is judged to have a technical rating of other than acceptable. In that event, the Source Selection Authority shall make an integrated assessment best value award decision. D. Offerors are cautioned to submit sufficient information and in the format specified in Addenda To 52.212-1. Offerors may be asked to clarify certain aspects of their quotation. Communication conducted to resolve minor or clerical errors will not constitute discussions and the Contracting Officer reserves the right to award a contract without the opportunity for quotation revision. E. The Government intends to award a contract without discussions with respective Offeror's. The Government, however, reserves the right to conduct discussions if deemed in its best interest.

This requirement is used in the measurement of scalp electricity. This electricity is a natural byproduct of neurons firing. The equipment infers where and when different brain areas are active down to the millisecond and cubic centimeter. For research on concussions, the EEG helps pinpoint areas most affected by physical damage from head impacts. Two important aspects of EEG are its spatial resolution and configuration. Key to accurate readings are where measurements on the scalp are taken and how many electrodes are needed to take that measurement. More electrodes (or channels) allow greater spatial resolution; however the application time is greater.  USAFA requires an EEG that is both precise in its measurements and minimally time-consuming.    The successful awarded shall provide an EEG that meets the specifications listed below:   Shipping/Installation address is:   USAF Academy Brain LabFairchild Hall, Room 5K21BAttn: Dr. Christopher D'LauroUSAF Academy, CO  80840 Quote Format:  Provide pricing for the Electroencephalograph (EEG) Research System.
