The Government intends to award without discussions upon the initial evaluation of proposals. All Offerors are advised that, in the interest of efficiency, the Government reserves the right to conduct the evaluation in the most effective manner. Specifically, the Government may first evaluate the total proposed price of all Offerors. Thereafter, the Government will evaluate the proposal of the lowest priced Offeror only. If the lowest priced Offeror s proposal is determined to be acceptable, the Government may make award to that Offeror without further evaluation of the remaining Offerors proposals. If the lowest priced Offeror s proposal is determined to be unacceptable, then the Government may evaluate the next lowest priced proposal, and so forth and so on, until the Government reaches the lowest priced proposal that is determined to be Acceptable. However, the Government reserves the right to evaluate all Offerors proposals should it desire to conduct discussions, or otherwise determine it to be in the Government s best interest. The Government reserves the right to cancel the solicitation at any time. (b) 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.

Performance from the past Three (3) years will be rated. Performance will be rated as a "Pass/ Fail". Failing scores will have a full written justification and documented within the contract file. FACTOR THREE (3) - PRICE This solicitation will be evaluated as a Lowest Price Technically Acceptable (LPTA) procurement.

Past performance shall be evaluated in accordance with FAR 15.305. However, the comparative assessment in FAR 15.305 (a) (2) (i) does not apply. Proposals will be evaluated for acceptability but not ranked using the non-cost/price factors. (a) Options. The Government will evaluate offers for award purposes 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). (b) 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.
