Risk may be unacceptable even with special contractor emphasis and close Government monitoring. Moderate: Can potentially cause some disruption of schedule, increase cost, or degradation of performance. Special contractor emphasis and close Government monitoring will probably be able to overcome difficulties. Low: Has little potential to cause disruption of schedule, increase cost, or degradation of performance. Normal contractor effort and normal Government monitoring will probably be able to overcome difficulties. 2. The offeror's capabilities, related experience, facilities, techniques, or unique combinations of these that are integral factors for achieving the proposed project objectives presented in the formal proposal. 0Exceeds the criteria (Address key aspects of the proposal which demonstrate why the proposal exceeds the criteria.) 0Meets the criteria (Address key aspects of the proposal which demonstrate why the proposal meets the criteria.) 0Does not meet the criteria (Address key aspects of the proposal which demonstrate why the proposal does not meet the criteria.)

Special contractor emphasis and close Government monitoring will probably be able to overcome difficulties. Low: Key personnel possess qualifications and experience required and exhibit critical capabilities to perform this effort. 4. The reasonableness and realism of proposed costs and fees if any, the proposed cost share by the offeror if any, and the availability of funds (i.e., considering budgets and funding). (Check all that apply) The offeror's proposed: 0 (1) quantity and mix of labor hours, 0 (2) material, 0 (3) subcontracting, 0 (4) travel, and 0 (5) any other direct costs, are appropriate and realistic for their proposed technical approach. Assessed Proposal Risk: High _____ Moderate _____ Low _____ High: Cost proposed, labor mix and number of hours does not reflect that the Contractor has a clear understanding of the effort required to achieve technical objectives.

Moderate: Indicators exists that additional labor categories or hours may be required to complete the technical effort. Low: Cost proposed, labor mix and number of hours reflect that the Contractor has a clear understanding of the effort required to achieve technical objectives.

Award will be made to the contractor whose quotation is determined to represent the overall best value to the Government using an LPTA evaluation process. Quotations will be evaluated with regard to how they respond to the requirements of the PWS and on price submissions. The technical portion of the quotation should include all information the contractor wants the Government to consider and evaluate regarding its company's ability to perform all required tasks and conform to all required terms and conditions. In order to be eligible for award, the contractor's quotation must sufficiently address all aspects of the PWS. The Government reserves the right, but is not obligated, to conduct a realism analysis. With regard to the best value analysis for the award decision, the below evaluation factors and subfactors will be used in the determination of technical acceptability. Section 508 Accessibility Standards do not apply to this requirement. b. After receipt of quotations, the Government will first evaluate the lowest price quotation. If the lowest price quotation is determined to be technically acceptable and otherwise properly awardable, no further evaluations will be conducted, and award will be made. If, however, the lowest price quotation is determined to be technically unacceptable and/or otherwise not properly awardable, further evaluations will be conducted. c. The standards for determining technical acceptability are below, as well as information concerning price quotations. Page limitations are identified below under each evaluation factor and will be treated as maximums. If exceeded, excess pages will not be read or considered in evaluation of the quotation. The following items will not be considered when calculating page limits: cover page, table of contents, glossary, executive summary, generic resumes, past performances, OCCI mitigation plans, and Section 508 compliance. In the event any evaluation notices are issued, page limitations may also be placed on those. The technical portion of the quotation is to be submitted as a Microsoft (MS) Word 2007 or PDF document. The page format shall have a 1 inch margin using no smaller than an 11 point Ariel, Times New Roman, or Courier New font for all text to include any text contained in a table. The price quotation spreadsheet shall be a separate document from the technical quotation and shall be submitted in MSExcel 2007 format. All formulas shall remain present in the spreadsheet for verification. The file size of each document shall not exceed 2MB. Page limitations shall not be circumvented by including inserted text boxes/pop-ups or internet links to additional information; such inclusions are not acceptable and will not be considered part of a quotation. The Government reserves the right not to consider for award any quotation that does not adhere to the administrative requirements of this RFQ. (1) Technical/Management Approach Factor: The Technical/Management Subfactors will be evaluated and rated either Acceptable or Unacceptable. In order for a quotation to be rated overall Technically Acceptable, each of the following subfactors must be rated Acceptable. Technical/ management quotations should not exceed 20 pages. (a) Subfactor 1: Relocation and moving of DISA equipment, workstations/office boxes, IT boxes, plus storage type boxes and related items listed under tasks 6.1, 6.2, and 6.3. Vendor will show in writing that they can meet the move requirements both by the amount to be moved each day and the time requirements that each task must be completed by. This can be done byproviding the number of workers they plan on using to meet the move requirements for each task/subtask. (b) Subfactor 2: Packaging Material. Vendor will provide a detailed list of the quantity, size, and type of boxes, and other packaging materials (e.g., bubble wrap, tape, etc.) as described in task 6.4. Quantity and size of materials must meet minimum requirements listed in 6.4.1 and 6.4.2. (c) Subfactor 3: Optional Work. System Furniture tear down at Green Mount Facility.

(d) Subfactor 4: Low Profile Turn Table: The Offeror will provide a manufacturer description of the offered product that demonstrates the product characteristics and meets all the requirements of the PWS section 13. (2) Price Factor: (a) Price quotations will be evaluated to determine if they are reasonable and complete. The contractor shall submit pricing for the base period and all option periods, including option pricing for an additional 6-month period that may be authorized IAW FAR 52.217-8. See FAR 52.217-8 which authorizes the Government to require continued performance of any services within the limits and at the rates specified in the contract. The pricing quotation should include a separate line item for the additional 6-month period IAW FAR 52.217-8. These prices shall be identical to the quoted pricing in the 6 months prior to expiration of the base period, or the final option period, if option periods are present. The total evaluated price will consist of the contractor's proposed price for the base period, all option periods, the option pricing for the additional 6-month period, and surge pricing as requested below. (b) Contractors should ensure price quotations include detailed information regarding the resources required to accomplish the task (e.g., labor categories, labor hours, number of employees for each labor category, rates, travel, incidental equipment, contract access fees, etc.). Labor categories and labor rates identified in your price quotation. Any labor rates/categories proposed as a substitute for any required categories must be on a one for one basis. Again, the price quotation spreadsheet shall be a separate document from the technical/management quotation. The Government is requesting any and all discounts to the labor rates and material pricing. (c) All travel must show the specific detail, if known (e.g., number of days, locations, number of personnel, etc.). All ODCs shall annotate the specific detail (e.g., quantity, part number, manufacturer, etc.) to include supporting documentation to justify the costs (i.e., price quotes, price history, etc.). Travel shall be authorized by the COR in writing prior to performance and will be paid IAW FAR Part 31.205-46. 4. The Government intends to evaluate quotations and award a contract without exchanges with offerors. However, the Government reserves the right to conduct exchanges or seek clarifications if the contracting officer (KO) determines they are necessary. The Government further reserves the right to reduce the number of quotations being competitively considered to the greatest number that will permit efficient competition among the most highly rated quotations. If a contractor's quotation is removed from further consideration for award, written notice of the removal will be provided to the contractor. In the event issues pertaining to a proposed task cannot be resolved to the KO's satisfaction, the Government reserves the right to withdraw and cancel the proposed order. In such event, contractors will be notified in writing. 6. The SF 1449 contains provisions that apply to this solicitation and clauses that will be applicable to the resulting award. Some of the provisions require a response from the contractor and will need to be submitted along with your quotation. 7. In response to this RFQ, no terms, conditions, or assumptions will be entertained. If terms, conditions, or assumptions are included in a quotation, the quotation may be excluded on grounds that it failed to comply with the RFQ's instructions. 8. All quotations received in response to this RFQ shall remain valid for 90 calendar days from the date of receipt of quotations. Further, should the contractor be awarded this contract, the contractor will furnish the items and/or services identified in its quotation at the price quoted. 9.

The offeror certifies, to the best of its knowledge and belief, that the offeror and/or any of its principals-- (1) [ ___ ] Are, [ ___ ] are not presently debarred, suspended, proposed for debarment, or declared ineligible for the award of contracts by any Federal agency; (2) [ ___ ] Have, [ ___ ] have not, within a three-year period preceding this offer, been convicted of or had a civil judgment rendered against them for: commission of fraud or a criminal offense in connection with obtaining, attempting to obtain, or performing a Federal, state or local government contract or subcontract; violation of Federal or state antitrust statutes relating to the submission of offers; or commission of embezzlement, theft, forgery, bribery, falsification or destruction of records, making false statements, tax evasion, violating Federal criminal tax laws, or receiving stolen property; and (3) [ ___ ] Are, [ ___ ] are not presently indicted for, or otherwise criminally or civilly charged by a Government entity with, commission of any of these offenses enumerated in paragraph (h)(2) of this clause; and (4) [ ___ ] Have, [ ___ ] have not, within a three-year period preceding this offer, been notified of any delinquent Federal taxes in an amount that exceeds $3,000 for which the liability remains unsatisfied. (i) Taxes are considered delinquent if both of the following criteria apply: (A) The tax liability is finally determined. The liability is finally determined if it has been assessed. A liability is not finally determined if there is a pending administrative or judicial challenge. In the case of a judicial challenge to the liability, the liability is not finally determined until all judicial appeal rights have been exhausted. (B) The taxpayer is delinquent in making payment. A taxpayer is delinquent if the taxpayer has failed to pay the tax liability when full payment was due and required.

(A) The taxpayer has received a statutory notice of deficiency, under I.R.C. §6212, which entitles the taxpayer to seek Tax Court review of a proposed tax deficiency. This is not a delinquent tax because it is not a final tax liability. Should the taxpayer seek Tax Court review, this will not be a final tax liability until the taxpayer has exercised all judicial appear rights. (B) The IRS has filed a notice of Federal tax lien with respect to an assessed tax liability, and the taxpayer has been issued a notice under I.R.C. §6320 entitling the taxpayer to request a hearing with the IRS Office of Appeals Contesting the lien filing, and to further appeal to the Tax Court if the IRS determines to sustain the lien filing. In the course of the hearing, the taxpayer is entitled to contest the underlying tax liability because the taxpayer has had no prior opportunity to contest the liability. This is not a delinquent tax because it is not a final tax liability. Should the taxpayer seek tax court review, this will not be a final tax liability until the taxpayer has exercised all judicial appeal rights. (C) The taxpayer has entered into an installment agreement pursuant to I.R.C. §6159. The taxpayer is making timely payments and is in full compliance with the agreement terms. The taxpayer is not delinquent because the taxpayer is not currently required to make full payment. (D) The taxpayer has filed for bankruptcy protection. The taxpayer is not delinquent because enforced collection action is stayed under 11 U.S.C. §362 (the Bankruptcy Code).

Destination NOV 1991 CLAUSES INCORPORATED BY FULL TEXT 52.209-5 CERTIFICATION REGARDING RESPONSIBILITY MATTERS (APR 2010) (a)(1) The Offeror certifies, to the best of its knowledge and belief, that- (i) The Offeror and/or any of its Principals- (A) Are ( ) are not ( ) presently debarred, suspended, proposed for debarment, or declared ineligible for the award of contracts by any Federal agency; (B) Have ( ) have not ( ), within a three-year period preceding this offer, been convicted of or had a civil judgment rendered against them for: commission of fraud or a criminal offense in connection with obtaining, attempting to obtain, or performing a public (Federal, State, or local) contract or subcontract; violation of Federal or State antitrust statutes relating to the submission of offers; or commission of embezzlement, theft, forgery, bribery, falsification or destruction of records, making false statements, tax evasion, violating Federal criminal tax laws, or receiving stolen property (if offeror checks "have", the offeror shall also see 52.209-7, if included in this solicitation); and (C) Are ( ) are not ( ) presently indicted for, or otherwise criminally or civilly charged by a governmental entity with, commission of any of the offenses enumerated in paragraph (a)(1)(i)(B) of this provision.; and (D) Have , have not , within a three-year period preceding this offer, been notified of any delinquent Federal taxes in an amount that exceeds $3,000 for which the liability remains unsatisfied. (1) Federal taxes are considered delinquent if both of the following criteria apply: (i) The tax liability is finally determined. The liability is finally determined if it has been assessed. A liability is not finally determined if there is a pending administrative or judicial challenge. In the case of a judicial challenge to the liability, the liability is not finally determined until all judicial appeal rights have been exhausted. (ii) The taxpayer is delinquent in making payment. A taxpayer is delinquent if the taxpayer has failed to pay the tax liability when full payment was due and required. A taxpayer is not delinquent in cases where enforced collection action is precluded. (2) Examples. (i) The taxpayer has received a statutory notice of deficiency, under I.R.C. Sec. 6212, which entitles the taxpayer to seek Tax Court review of a proposed tax deficiency. This is not a delinquent tax because it is not a final tax liability. Should the taxpayer seek Tax Court review, this will not be a final tax liability until the taxpayer has exercised all judicial appeal rights. (ii) The IRS has filed a notice of Federal tax lien with respect to an assessed tax liability, and the taxpayer has been issued a notice under I.R.C. Sec. 6320 entitling the taxpayer to request a hearing with the IRS Office of Appeals contesting the lien filing, and to further appeal to the Tax Court if the IRS determines to sustain the lien filing. In the course of the hearing, the taxpayer is entitled to contest the underlying tax liability because the taxpayer has had no prior opportunity to contest the liability. This is not a delinquent tax because it is not a final tax liability. Should the taxpayer seek tax court review, this will not be a final tax liability until the taxpayer has exercised all judicial appeal rights. (iii) The taxpayer has entered into an installment agreement pursuant to I.R.C. Sec. 6159. The taxpayer is making timely payments and is in full compliance with the agreement terms. The taxpayer is not delinquent because the taxpayer is not currently required to make full payment. (iv) The taxpayer has filed for bankruptcy protection. The taxpayer is not delinquent because enforced collection action is stayed under 11 U.S.C. 362 (the Bankruptcy Code). (ii) The Offeror has ( ) has not ( ), within a three-year period preceding this offer, had one or more contracts terminated for default by any Federal agency. (2) Principal, for the purposes of this certification, means an officer, director, owner, partner, or a person having primary management or supervisory responsibilities within a business entity (e.g., general manager; plant manager; head of a division or business segment; and similar positions). (b) The Offeror shall provide immediate written notice to the Contracting Officer if, at any time prior to contract award, the Offeror learns that its certification was erroneous when submitted or has become erroneous by reason of changed circumstances. (c) A certification that any of the items in paragraph (a) of this provision exists will not necessarily result in withholding of an award under this solicitation. However, the certification will be considered in connection with a determination of the Offeror's responsibility. Failure of the Offeror to furnish a certification or provide such additional information as requested by the Contracting Officer may render the Offeror nonresponsible. (d) Nothing contained in the foregoing shall be construed to require establishment of a system of records in order to render, in good faith, the certification required by paragraph (a) of this provision. The knowledge and information of an Offeror is not required to exceed that which is normally possessed by a prudent person in the ordinary course of business dealings. (e) The certification in paragraph (a) of this provision is a material representation of fact upon which reliance was placed when making award. If it is later determined that the Offeror knowingly rendered an erroneous certification, in addition to other remedies available to the Government, the Contracting Officer may terminate the contract resulting from this solicitation for default.

A liability is not finally determined if there is a pending administrative or judicial challenge. In the case of a judicial challenge to the liability, the liability is not finally determined until all judicial appeal rights have been exhausted. (B) The taxpayer is delinquent in making payment. A taxpayer is delinquent if the taxpayer has failed to pay the tax liability when full payment was due and required.

Sec. 6212, which entitles the taxpayer to seek Tax Court review of a proposed tax deficiency. This is not a delinquent tax because it is not a final tax liability.

Sec. 6320 entitling the taxpayer to request a hearing with the IRS Office of Appeals contesting the lien filing, and to further appeal to the Tax Court if the IRS determines to sustain the lien filing. In the course of the hearing, the taxpayer is entitled to contest the underlying tax liability because the taxpayer has had no prior opportunity to contest the liability. This is not a delinquent tax because it is not a final tax liability. Should the taxpayer seek tax court review, this will not be a final tax liability until the taxpayer has exercised all judicial appeal rights. (C) The taxpayer has entered into an installment agreement pursuant to I.R.C. Sec. 6159. The taxpayer is making timely payments and is in full compliance with the agreement terms. The taxpayer is not delinquent because the taxpayer is not currently required to make full payment. (D) The taxpayer has filed for bankruptcy protection.

Rails on which lubricant is used should be cleaned down at least once a year. Where necessary, a non-flammable or high flash point solvent should be used to remove excess lubricant, lint and dirt which will accumulate on them and which presents a hazard in case of fire in the hoistway.

(End of Provision) (a) The Government will award a contract resulting from this solicitation to the responsible offeror whose offer conforming to the solicitation will be most advantageous to the Government, price and other factors considered. The following factors shall be used to evaluate offers: 1) Technical Acceptability2) Past Performance3) Price (b) Basis for Award & Evaluation This will be a Lowest Priced/Technically Acceptable (LPTA) procurement. The Government intends to evaluate quotations and award a contract without discussions with Offerors. The Government reserves the right to conduct discussions if the Contracting Officer later determines them to be necessary. The LPTA process is selected as appropriate for this acquisition because the best value is expected to result from selection of the technically acceptable quotation with the lowest evaluated price. An overall technical rating must be at least "ACCEPTABLE" in order to be eligible for award. An "UNACCEPTABLE" rating, results in the technical quotation being rated "UNACCEPTABLE" unless corrected through discussions. An overall technical rating of "UNACCEPTABLE" makes a quotation ineligible for award. The Government reserves the right to make no award as a result of this solicitation. This requirement is going out as Brand Name Or Equal. An offeror is expected to submit sufficient information in response to the RFQ to allow for the evaluation of his/her quotation. It is the Offerors responsibility to provide information to prove that their item is "Or Equal" to the required Brand. Each of the evaluation factors will be rated as follows: Factor 1 - Technical Acceptability: The Government will evaluate the offeror's capabilities to provide the brand name or Equal as required per Attachment 1. The supplies recommended by the contractor will be evaluated in how they satisfy all of the Government's requirements as outlined in the Statement of Non-Availability (SON) and Minimum Essential Characteristics (MECs). The Offeror's proposal shall include all required documentation detailed in the list below. The following documents shall be submitted as part of the Technical Acceptability factor. Failure to provide the following documents may result in a Technically Unacceptable proposal rating. • Equipment Support Kit Lists. • Equipment Repairable Items List. • Equipment Commercial Service Manual. • Equipment Commercial Operation/Instruction Manual. • Equipment Consumable/Durable Support Items List. • Detailed Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for all materials used in manufacturer and/or production of the CPPW.• Certified report of swatch testing of materiel. Table A-1. Technical Acceptable/Unacceptable RatingsRating DescriptionAcceptable Proposal clearly meets the requirements of the RFQ.Unacceptable Proposal does not clearly meet the requirements of the RFQ. Factor 2 - Past Performance: Offeror's past performance references' questionaires, submitted directly from their references, will be reviewed and considered in assigning a rating. Offerors are reminded that while the Government may elect to consider data obtained from other sources, the burden of demonstrating relevancy, recency, and quality of the past performance rests with the Offeror. Other sources available to the Government include, but are not limited to, the Past Performance Information Retrieval System (PPIRS) and Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System (FAPIIS). In the case of an Offeror without a record of recent/relevant past performance or for whom information on past performance is not available or so sparse that no meaningful past performance rating can be reasonably assigned, the Offeror may not be evaluated favorably or unfavorably on past performance in accordance with FAR 15.305(a)(2)(iv). Therefore, the Offeror shall be determined to have unknown past performance. In the context of Acceptability/Unacceptability, "Unknown" shall be considered "Acceptable." Past Performance Evaluation RatingsRating DescriptionAcceptable Based on the Offeror's performance record, the Government 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 has no reasonable expectation that the Offeror will be able to successfully perform the required effort. Factor 3 - Price: (all CLINs shall be priced per Attachment 1) Offerors' price proposals will be evaluated to determine whether the price is complete, fair and reasonable. The Government's determination that the proposed price is fair and reasonable will be based on price evaluation and analysis using the techniques in FAR 15.305(1), which provides that comparison of the proposed prices will usually satisfy the requirement for price analysis. (c) A written notice of award or acceptance of an offer, mailed or otherwise furnished to the successful offeror within the time for acceptance specified in the offer, shall result in a binding contract without further action by either party. Before the offer's specified expiration time, the Government may accept an offer (or part of an offer), whether or not there are negotiations after its receipt, unless a written notice of withdrawal is received before award.
