(End of Provision)Addendum to FAR 52.212-2 -- Evaluation -- Commercial Items (Oct 2014). BASIS FOR CONTRACT AWARD: This is a competitive acquisition in accordance with FAR Parts 12 and 13. The evaluation process will proceed as follows: 1. Price Evaluation. a. The government shall rank all responsive quotes by price, including option price. Award will be made based on the contract line item prices proposed by the vendor. The extended amounts will be added together to determine the total evaluated price. The unit price of the vendor's quote shall control any conflict between the unit price and the extended amount submitted in response to this solicitation. No advantage will accrue to a vendor who proposes to perform the work for an unrealistically low price. The lowest price quote may not necessarily be selected. Failure to quote for any item in the Price Schedule may cause the vendor's quote to be rejected as non-responsive. The price evaluation will document the reasonableness and affordability of the proposed total evaluated price (TEP).b. The evaluated price will include consideration of pricing for the extension of services under clause 52.217-8. For each base and option period, the government will divide the proposed price for each period by the number of months of performance to arrive at a monthly rate. The final evaluated price will include the proposed price plus 6 months of services at the monthly rate for the base and all option periods. Award will be made based on the contract line item prices proposed by the quoter initially. 2. Technical Evaluation. a. The Government will evaluate quotes for technical acceptability on an Acceptable/ Unacceptable basis. All technical criteria must be rated "Acceptable" to be considered technically acceptable. b. The technical factors will receive one of the following ratings listed below: Table A-1. Technical Acceptable/Unacceptable RatingsRating                DescriptionAcceptable           Quote clearly meets the minimum requirements of the solicitation. Unacceptable       Quote does not clearly meets the minimum requirements of the                               solicitation. c. The quote will be evaluated based on a Manning/Staffing Plan to support operations in accordance with the PWS. Measure of Merit: Plan provides acceptable support to daily operations as presented in the PWS, Description of Services. 3. Past Performance. a. The purpose of the past performance evaluation is to assess the degree of confidence the Government has in the quoter's ability to provide services that meet the requirements outlined in this solicitation using the quoter's demonstrated record of performance. Past Performance will be evaluated as acceptable, unacceptable, or unknown. The government may use sources other than those provided in response to this solicitation, such as information obtained from FAPISS, PPIRS, and SAM. Table A-2. Past Performance Evaluation RatingsRating                        DescriptionAcceptable                  Based on the quoter's performance record, the Government has a                                    reasonable expectation that the quoter will successfully perform                                    the required effort, or the offeror has no recent/relevant                                    peformance record. Unacceptable              Based on the quoter's performance record, the Government has no                                    reasonable expectation that the quoter will be able to successfully                                    perform the required effort. b. Quoters are cautioned to submit sufficient information to permit a meaningful assessment of past performance. Quoters may be asked to clarify certain aspects of their quote or respond to adverse past performance information to which the quoter has not previously had an opportunity to respond. Adverse past performance is defined as past performance information that supports an "Unacceptable" rating or any unfavorable comments received from sources. 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 a quote revision. c. The government reserves the right to award a contract to other than the lowest priced quote if the lowest priced quoter is judged to have a performance assessment rating of "Unacceptable". In that event, the source Selection Authority shall make an integrated assessment best value award decision. 4. Best Value Decision. The Contracting Officer shall make an integrated assessment best value award decision considering all responsive quotes. The Government will award to the vendor whose quote represents the best performance for an affordable price. The Government reserves the right to award one or no contract at all, depending on the quality of quotes submitted. (End of Addendum)  III.

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.
