(APR 2014)
(a) General.
(1) Past performance is an indicator of a Contractor's ability to perform satisfactorily on future awards.

(3) The Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) will evaluate offerors' past performance, which may include, but is not limited to, their record of conforming to specifications, conformance to the standards of good workmanship, adherence to contract schedules, and commitment to customer satisfaction.

(c) PPIRS-SR classifications are established for each supplier and can be reviewed at http://www.ppirs.gov/. Contractors are granted access to PPIRS-SR for their own classifications.
Offerors are encouraged to review their own classifications as well as the PPIRS-SR reporting procedures and rating methodology detailed in the PPIRS-SR procedures manual and the PPIRS-SR user guide available at http://www.ppirs.gov.
(1) PPIRS-SR classifications. Specific information as to how PPIRS-SR determines delivery and quality classifications can be found in the PPIRS Reference Material, specifically the "PPIRS-SR Evaluation Criteria" document on the PPIRS-SR Website at http://www.ppirs.gov/ppirsfiles/reference.htm.

(2) Specifics as to how PPIRS-SR calculations are affected when there is no delivery or quality information provided by the source data bases can be found in the PPIRS Reference Material, specifically the "PPIRS-SR Evaluation Criteria" document on the PPIRS-SR Website at http://www.ppirs.gov/ppirsfiles/reference.htm.
(3) In the case of a Contractor without a record of relevant past performance or for whom information on past performance is not available in the PPIRS-SR, the Contractor will be evaluated neither favorably nor unfavorably on past performance.
(4) Contractor-caused discrepancies or delinquencies will be reflected in a contractor's past performance assessment. Repair, replacement or reimbursement of quality and packaging defects will not provide relief of negative DLA performance data. Contractor-caused delivery extensions, regardless of consideration paid, will be reflected in the delivery classification for contracts issued by DLA.
(e) The Contracting Officer may collect and analyze other relevant information in addition to any past performance information derived from PPIRS-SR.

In situations where a family member (s) want a forensic autopsy performed, embalming will not occur upon notification by the local health care facility so that VA is not cited for obstruction of information.

All responsible sources may submit a quotation which shall be considered by the agency. The anticipated contract award date is on or before February 14, 2017.BASIS OF AWARD: The government intends to award a firm fixed-price contract to the responsible quoter whose quotation is responsive to the solicitation and is determined to be the best value to the Government, using the tradeoff approach. Selection of the best value to the Government will be achieved through a process of evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of each quoter's quotation against the evaluation criteria described below. In determining the best value to the Government, the Technical Capability and Past Performance Evaluation Criteria, when combined, are more important than the evaluated price. The Government is more concerned about obtaining a superior Technical Capability quotation than making an award at the lowest evaluated price. However, the Government will not make an award at a price premium it considers disproportionate to the benefits associated with the evaluated superiority of one technical and management quotation over another. Thus, to the extent that quoter's technical and past performance quotations are evaluated as close or similar in merit, the evaluated price is more likely to be a determining factor. The EEOC is a tax exempt Federal agency; please do not include any sales tax in quotations for which the Federal Government is exempt.EVALUATION FACTORS FOR AWARD: The following factors shall be used to evaluate quotations. These factors are listed In their relative order of importance: Technical Capability, Past Performance, and Price.
Factor I - Technical Capability a. Contract RequirementsQuotations will be evaluated on the quoter's ability to provide all the contract requirements regarding meeting space, food and beverage, audio-visual equipment and technical support and lodging. Quotations must address the quoter's ability to meet ADA requirements for accessibility as it relates to meeting space, lodging and parking. Quotations should reflect the quality of the customer services provided, the layout design and quality of the facilities as reflected by the physical layout and atmosphere of meeting space, amenities such as free Wi-Fi in the conference space, and upkeep of the facilities. b. Availability of Dates - Base Year 2017Quotations will be evaluated on the ability of the quoter to provide the required services on the dates requested. Additional consideration will be given to quoters who can provide the required services on the preferred (1st choice) dates in 2017. c. Availability of Dates - Option Year 2018 Quotations will be evaluated on the ability of the quoter to provide the required services on the dates requested. Additional consideration will be given to quoters who can provide the required services on the preferred (1st choice) dates in 2018. d. Location Quotations will be evaluated on the ability of the quoter to provide a facility located within 20 miles of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Atlanta District Office located at 100 Alabama Street, SW, Suite 4R30, Atlanta, Georgia 30303 with adequate low-cost or free parking for participants and presenters. Factor II - Past PerformanceThe quoter must provide references for a minimum of three (3) government or non-government contracts which provided the same or similar services; contracts must have been awarded within the past three (3) years. One of the references must be a federal government agency. The information for each reference shall include the following:1. Name and address of government agency and other non-government client2. Name, title, email and telephone number of Contracting Officer, or other point of contact3. Name, title, email and telephone number of client's program manager, if applicable4. Contract number, period of performance, and total dollar value of contract; and5. Description of services provided. EEOC will evaluate past performance in terms of customer service on similar requirements, feedback from references on meeting room design/layout and quality/upkeep of facilities and décor, and the availability of amenities and staff to support the conference. A quoter without a record of relevant past performance or for whom information on past performance is not available; the quoter may not be evaluated favorably or unfavorably on past performance. Factor III - Price The price quotation will be evaluated against the independent Government Price Estimate. Each quoter shall complete the Quotation Response Form Attachment No. 1 which includes the quoter's pricing quotation. Evaluations of quotations will consider the following pricing information: pricing provided for all line items listed in the Schedule of Supplies and Services of this RFQ in the units and format provided; pricing of recommended menu options for breakfast, lunch, snacks and beverages; sleeping room rates; and all cost options for transportation and facility parking rates.EVALUATION OF OPTIONS: Except when it is determined in accordance with FAR 17.206(b) not to be in the Government's best interests, the government will evaluate quotations for award purposes by adding the total price for the option years (CLIN 0004 through CLIN 0006) to the total price for the basic requirement (CLIN 0001 - 0003). Evaluation of the options will not obligate the government to exercise the options. Site Visits: The EEOC reserves the right to conduct a site visit prior to award of all quoters who are rated to be technically acceptable. The site visit will review and evaluate the same technical items identified in the Technical Capabilities Portion of the technical evaluation factors. Notice: The Government reserves the right to make a contract award without discussion with quoters (except clarifications as described in FAR 15.306(a)). Therefore, the vendor's initial quote should contain the vendor's best terms from a price and technical standpoint. The Government reserves the right to conduct discussions, if the Contracting Officer later determines them to be necessary.APPLICABLE PROVISIONS AND CLAUSES: The following Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) provisions and/or clauses apply to this acquisition: FAR Provisions: FAR 52.212-1 Instructions to Offerors Commercial Items; FAR 52.212-3 Offeror Representations and Certifications Commercial Items; and, 52.204-7, System for Award Management.
