The acquisition process that will be used is a Design-Build, One-Step Request for Proposal, Lowest Priced Technically Acceptable (LPTA) procurement. Design-Bid-Build (DBB) type procurement is not appropriate. Award will be made to one (1) offeror who is deemed by the Government to be responsible in accordance with Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR), conforms to the solicitation requirements; and whose proposal, judged by an overall assessment of the evaluation criteria, represents the best value to the Government. Offerors will be evaluated based on technical factors including Specialized Experience, Past Performance, and Qualifications of the Offeror's Team and Price. The One Step Design Build evaluation will use the Lowest Price Technically Acceptable method to determine the awardee among those offerors that have provided proposals. The following will be the technical evaluation factors for informational purposes only. If you are interested in submitting a proposal for this project you must respond to the solicitation and any amendments. Final information regarding the selection criteria and requirements for this procurement will be provided in the solicitation on or about 16 July 2015. FACTOR 1 - SPECIALIZED EXPERIENCE - SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS: To demonstrate recent, relevant experience, the Offeror must use the Specialized Experience forms - (Attachment 2 for construction experience). If the Offeror is a Joint Venture, Limited Liability Corporation, members of a Teaming Agreement, or integrated design-build firm provide experience information for design and construction, demonstrating the experience of each proposed design and construction entity as is relevant to their proposed role on this project. Submit projects that are currently well underway (designed and at least 75% construction progress completed) or completed and turned over no longer than seven (7) years preceding the date of this Solicitation. If any firm has multiple divisions, limit the project examples to those performed by the division submitting the offer. The Offeror shall submit a minimum of two (2) projects, one of which must have been performed by the Prime Contractor, but no more than seven (7) projects for Factor 1. At least one (1) project must demonstrate adapt/build or design/build experience. If the Offeror proposes to use an architect-engineer firm as part of the Offeror's team, the architect-engineer firm shall submit a minimum of two (2) projects for Factor 1. The total number of projects submitted for Factor 1 shall not exceed seven (7) project examples. EVALUATION CRITERIA: The Offeror will be evaluated on the relevancy of the experience demonstrated in the submitted EXPERIENCE INFORMATION FACT SHEET, Form A2. Factor 1 shall be rated in accordance with information provided below. The projects submitted should include the following criteria.  Projects shall be considered similar in scope if they contain any of the following: o If the project included waste stream analysis of food, yard waste (leaves, grass, tree trimmings, etc.) and wastewater treatment sludge. o If the project required the Offeror to obtain the required environmental permitting associated with implementation and construction of a composting facility o A composting facility which handles an estimated amount of waste greater than or equal to ten (10) tons per day. o Required the Offerors involvement in stakeholder and public relations facilitation associated with implementation of a solid waste treatment system.  Projects shall be considered similar in magnitude if they contain any of the following: o Any project where the construction cost was greater than or equal to $500,000. Where this combination of experience includes the following, the proposal may be rated as deficient (the following list does not encompass all possible deficiencies): - Experience examples are not verifiable. The Government reserves the right to verify the experience by reviewing the Construction Contractor (or Architect-Engineer) Appraisal Support System (CCASS/ACASS), other DOD or Government appraisal systems or to interview commercial owners or references. The Government may check any or all cited references to verify supplied information. The relevant experience of key personnel proposed for this project will not be evaluated or considered under this factor. Rating Guidelines for Factor 1: The government will not award to an Offeror that receives an unacceptable rating for this factor. Acceptable: Proposal clearly meets the minimum requirements of the solicitation. Unacceptable: Proposal does not clearly meet the minimum requirements of the solicitation. 3.1.2. FACTOR 2 - CONTRACTOR PAST PERFORMANCE The Offeror will provide past performance information on the projects submitted under Factor 1 using the past performance questionnaires included in the solicitation. In addition to the past performance questionnaires provided, the Government intends to use the Past Performance Information Retrieval System (PPIRS). However, the Government may review any other sources of information for evaluating past performance. Other sources may include, but are not limited to, past performance information retrieved through Contractor Performance Assessment Reporting System (CPARS), using all CAGE/DUNS numbers of team members (partnership, joint venture, teaming arrangement, or parent company/subsidiary/affiliate) identified in the Offeror's proposal, inquiries of owner representative(s) or other personnel with knowledge of performance, Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System (FAPIIS), Electronic Subcontract Reporting System (eSRS), and any other known sources. The past performance evaluation team will review this past performance information and determine the quality and usefulness as it applies to a performance competence assessment as described in the guidelines, below. Negative performance information includes the issuance of cure notices, terminations for default, or the requirement for excessive oversight in order to achieve satisfactory completion. A single example of negative performance, if significant enough, may lead to a negative rating for this factor. Likewise, multiple examples of less significant negative performance may lead to a negative rating for this factor. In conducting the performance competence assessment, the Government will consider the relevancy of the past performance information available. Highly relevant projects are those that are similar in scope, magnitude, and complexity to the current solicitation, although the past performance may still be considered if the projects do not fully meet the criteria for Factor 1, Past Experience. In addition, the Offeror is required to provide any information on past projects (within the past five (5) years) that were terminated (for any reason) or in which they have been issued a CURE NOTICE and provide accompanying information as to the details for such action(s) with an explanation of why they were terminated or issued a cure notice. EVALUATION CRITERIA: The Government will evaluate the relevancy of the Offeror's record of past performance information in accordance with the table shown below. Based on the Offeror's recent relevant performance record, the Government will make a determination as to the expectation that the Offeror will successfully perform the required effort. A performance confidence assessment rating will be assigned in accordance with the table shown below. Where no recent/relevant performance record is available or the Offeror's performance record is so sparse that no meaningful confidence assessment rating can be reasonably assigned, the Offeror will receive an Unknown Confidence (neutral) rating. This rating is neither favorable nor unfavorable. Rating Guidelines for Factor 2 PAST PERFORMANCE RATINGS Past Performance Relevancy Ratings Rating Definition Very Relevant Present/past performance effort involved essentially the same scope and magnitude of effort and complexities this solicitation requires. Relevant Present/past performance effort involved similar scope and magnitude of effort and complexities this solicitation requires. Somewhat Relevant Present/past performance effort involved some of the scope and magnitude of effort and complexities this solicitation requires. Not Relevant Present/past performance effort involved little or none of the scope and magnitude of effort and complexities this solicitation requires. Performance Confidence Assessments Rating Description Substantial Confidence Based on the Offeror's recent/relevant performance record, the Government has a high expectation that the Offeror will successfully perform the required effort. Satisfactory Confidence Based on the Offeror's recent/relevant performance record, the Government has a reasonable expectation that the Offeror will successfully perform the required effort. Limited Confidence Based on the Offeror's recent/relevant performance record, the Government has a low expectation that the Offeror will successfully perform the required effort. No Confidence Based on the Offeror's recent/relevant performance record, the Government has no expectation that the Offeror will be able to successfully perform the required effort. Unknown Confidence (Neutral) No recent/relevant performance record is available or the Offeror's performance record is so sparse that no meaningful confidence assessment rating can be reasonably assigned. The government will not award to an Offeror that receives an Unsatisfactory Rating for this factor. The Government will review the relative risk of the contractors ratings but normally not award to an Offeror that receives unacceptable rating in this factor: EVALUATION AND RATING SYSTEM 3.1.2.1 General: The Government will review the proposals and rate the quality of each evaluation factor and sub-factor(s). The SSEB will rate each proposal against the specified evaluation criteria in the Solicitation requirements. They will not compare proposals at this time. After all proposals are rated, the Government will compare the ratings and relative advantages and disadvantages of proposals against each other in order to determine which Offerors are the most highly qualified under Phase 1 to short-list for participation in Phase 2. 3.1.2.2 Review Write-up: The Government will support each rating with a narrative, separately listing all strengths or advantages, weaknesses or disadvantages, deficiencies, and required clarifications. 3.1.2.3 Rating System: After listing proposal strengths, weaknesses and deficiencies, the SSEB will assign an adjective rating of "Acceptable",, or "Unacceptable" to factor 1 and factor 3 and sub-factor (except those factors rated as GO/NO-GO and except for the Past Performance Factor), which reflect the Government's confidence in each offeror's technical ability, as demonstrated in its proposal, to perform the requirements stated in the RFP. The adjectival ratings shall be assigned, using the following criteria, which incorporate a proposal risk assessment: 3.1.2.4 Acceptable: Proposal meets requirements and indicates an adequate approach and understanding of the requirements. Strengths and weaknesses are offsetting or will have little or no impact on contract performance. Risk of unsuccessful performance is no worse than moderate. 3.1.2.5 Marginal: Proposal does not clearly meet requirements and has not demonstrated an adequate approach and understanding of the requirements.
