This process will involve verification that figures are correctly calculated, prices are presented in the requested format, and that proposed rates and any applicable discounts are accurate. Additionally, the Government may utilize one or more of the following methods to evaluate price: • Review of the proposed level of effort and associated pricing;• Analysis of proposed labor mix;• Comparison to other quotes received;• Comparison and/or analysis based on Independent Government Cost Estimate;• Price Realism; and/or• Comparison/Analysis to historical cost. As part of the price evaluation, the Government will evaluate the Option to Extend Services (FAR Clause 52.217-8) by dividing the 12-month option period total by two (2), and adding the calculated six-month total to the quoter's total proposed price. Thus, for the purpose of evaluation, the quoter's total price will include the base period, all optional periods and the optional extension of services period. Though, quoters are only required to price the base and option periods and shall not submit a price for the potential six-month extension of services period. The Government will evaluate each quoter's past performance based upon customer satisfaction with the services provided on past or current projects. (iii) Past Performance. (a) Quoters shall identify, in detail, three (3) contracts, no more than five (5), which have recently been performed (within the last 3 years), or are currently being performed, which are similar in scope for services of this magnitude and complexity. The quoter shall provide the following information with respect to each of these contracts: 1. Contract number, Task Order number (if applicable), project title & description of the project 2. Total contract value and type of contract3. Date of contract award and period of performance4. Government Agency/Organization Name5. Name, address and telephone number of all applicable contract points of contact6. Brief description of contract work, scope, and responsibilities 7. Brief narrative as to how the reference relates to this effort. As part of past performance evaluation, Past Performance will be evaluated using recent and relevant information obtained from the references provided by the responder as well as past performance information independently obtained by the Government. Past Performance will be evaluated and given of rating of "Acceptable", "Unacceptable", or "Neutral" as defined below. Recent and relevant Past Performance is defined in Addendum to FAR 52.212-1, Instructions to Offerors - Commercial Items, paragraph 2.b. The Government is not required to contact all references provided by the quoter. Also, references other than those identified by the offeror may be contacted by the Government to obtain additional information that will be used in the evaluation of the offeror's past performance. (b) Options. The Government will evaluate offers for award proposes by adding the total price for all options to the total price for the basic requirement. The Government may determine that an offer is unacceptable if the option prices are significantly unbalanced. Evaluation of options shall not obligate the Government to exercise the option(s). (c) A written notice of award or acceptance of a quotation mailed or otherwise furnished to the successful responder within the time for acceptance specified in the quote, shall result in a binding contract without further action by either party. Before the quote's specified expiration time, the Government may accept a quotation (or part of a quote), whether or not there are negotiations after its receipt, unless a written notice of withdrawal is received before award. (d) Rating Definitions: Definitions of Ratings for Technical Capability:Pass. Quote meets or exceeds all specified requirements, demonstrates an acceptable understanding of the requirement, and proposes a sound, practical, and feasible approach to accomplish the requirements of the Statement of Work.Fail. Quote does not meet requirements, has not demonstrated an adequate approach, or does not demonstrate an acceptable understanding of the requirement. Definitions of Ratings for Past Performance: Acceptable. Based on the responder's performance record, the Government has a reasonable expectation that the responder will successfully perform the required effort, or the responder's performance record is unknown. Unacceptable. Based on the responder's performance record, the Government has no reasonable expectation that the responder will be able to successfully perform the required effort. Neutral. No relevant performance record Is identifiable upon which to base a meaningful performance rating. A search was unable to identify any relevant past performance information for the quoter or key team members/subcontractors or their key personnel. This is neither a negative or positive assessment. Notes: Quoters are advised that the Government may use past performance information obtained from centralized past performance databases and sources other than those identified by the quoter. The information obtained may be used for both the responsibility determination and the best value decision. A quoter who with no relevant past performance record will be rated neither favorably nor unfavorably and will receive a neutral rating. Contracts listed may include those entered into with Government agencies or private sector. For contractors with no relevant past performance, the government may take into account information regarding the past performance of predecessor companies, key personnel with relevant past experience or subcontractors that will perform key aspects of the requirement.
