The Contractor will be required to provide consent for TIN validation to the Government as a part of the SAM registration process; and (4) The Government has marked the record "Active". "System for Award Management (SAM)" means the primary Government repository for prospective Federal awardee and Federal awardee information and the centralized Government system for certain contracting, grants, and other assistance-related processes. It includes- (1) Data collected from prospective Federal awardees required for the conduct of business with the Government; (2) Prospective contractor-submitted annual representations and certifications in accordance with FAR subpart 4.12; and (3) Identification of those parties excluded from receiving Federal contracts, certain subcontracts, and certain types of Federal financial and non-financial assistance and benefits. (b) The Contractor is responsible for the accuracy and completeness of the data within the SAM database, and for any liability resulting from the Government's reliance on inaccurate or incomplete data. To remain registered in the SAM database after the initial registration, the Contractor is required to review and update on an annual basis, from the date of initial registration or subsequent updates, its information in the SAM database to ensure it is current, accurate and complete. Updating information in the SAM does not alter the terms and conditions of this contract and is not a substitute for a properly executed contractual document. (c) (1) (i) If a Contractor has legally changed its business name, doing business as name, or division name (whichever is shown on the contract), or has transferred the assets used in performing the contract, but has not completed the necessary requirements regarding novation and change-of-name agreements in subpart 42.12, the Contractor shall provide the responsible Contracting Officer a minimum of one business day's written notification of its intention to- (A) Change the name in the SAM database; (B) Comply with the requirements of subpart 42.12 of the FAR; and (C) Agree in writing to the timeline and procedures specified by the responsible Contracting Officer. The Contractor shall provide with the notification sufficient documentation to support he legally changed name. (ii) If the Contractor fails to comply with the requirements of paragraph (c)(1)(i) of this clause, or fails to perform the agreement at paragraph (c)(1)(i)(C) of this clause, and, in the absence of a properly executed novation or change-of-name agreement, the SAM information that shows the Contractor to be other than the Contractor indicated in the contract will be considered to be incorrect information within the meaning of the "Suspension of Payment" paragraph of the electronic funds transfer (EFT) clause of this contract. (2) The Contractor shall not change the name or address for EFT payments or manual payments, as appropriate, in the SAM record to reflect an assignee for the purpose of assignment of claims (see FAR subpart 32.8, Assignment of Claims). Assignees shall be separately registered in the SAM. Information provided to the Contractor's SAM record that indicates payments, including those made by EFT, to an ultimate recipient other than that Contractor will be considered to be incorrect information within the meaning of the "Suspension of Payment" paragraph of the EFT clause of this contract. (3) The Contractor shall ensure that the DUNS number is maintained with Dun & Bradstreet throughout the life of the contract. The Contractor shall communicate any change to the DUNS number to the Contracting Officer within 30 days after the change, so an appropriate modification can be issued to update the data on the contract. A change in the DUNS number does not necessarily require a novation be accomplished. Dun & Bradstreet may be contacted- (i) Via the internet at http://fedgov.dnb.com/webform or if the Contractor does not have internet access, it may call Dun and Bradstreet at 1-866-705-5711 if located within the United States; or (ii) If located outside the United States, by contacting the local Dun and Bradstreet office. (d) Contractors may obtain additional information on registration and annual confirmation requirements at https://www.acquisition.gov. 252.204-7004 Alternate A, System for Award Management (May 2013) As prescribed in 204.1105, substitute the following paragraph (a) for paragraph (a) of the provision at FAR 52.204-7: (a) Definitions. As used in this clause- "System for Award Management (SAM) database" means the primary Government repository for contractor information required for the conduct of business with the Government. "Commercial and Government Entity (CAGE) code" means- (1) A code assigned by the Defense Logistics Information Service (DLIS) to identify a commercial or Government entity; or (2) A code assigned by a member of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization that DLIS records and maintains in the CAGE master file. This type of code is known as an "NCAGE code." "Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number" means the 9-digit number assigned by Dun and Bradstreet, Inc. (D&B) to identify unique business entities. "Data Universal Numbering System +4 (DUNS+4) number" means the DUNS number assigned by D&B plus a 4-character suffix that may be assigned by a business concern. (D&B has no affiliation with this 4-character suffix.) This 4-character suffix may be assigned at the discretion of the business concern to establish additional SAM records for identifying alternative Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) accounts (see FAR 32.11) for the same parent concern. "Registered in the System for Award Management (SAM) database" means that- (1) The contractor has entered all mandatory information, including the DUNS number or the DUNS+4 number, and Contractor and Government Entity (CAGE) code into the SAM database; and (2) The contractor has completed the Core Data, Assertions, Representations and Certifications, and Points of Contact sections of the registration in the SAM database; (3) The Government has validated all mandatory data fields, to include validation of the Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The Contractor will be required to provide consent for TIN validation to the Government as part of the SAM registration process; and (4) The Government has marked the record "Active." 252.204-7011 Alternative Line Item Structure (Sep 2011) a) Line items are the basic structural elements in a solicitation or contract that provide for the organization of contract requirements to facilitate pricing, delivery, inspection, acceptance and payment. Line items are organized into contract line items, subline items, and exhibit line items. Separate line items should be established to account for separate pricing, identification (see section 211.274 of the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement), deliveries, or funding. The Government recognizes that the line item structure in this solicitation may not conform to every offeror's practices. Failure to correct these issues can result in difficulties in accounting for deliveries and processing payments. Therefore, offerors are invited to propose an alternative line item structure for items on which bids, proposals, or quotes are requested in this solicitation to ensure that the resulting contract structure is economically and administratively advantageous to the Government and the Contractor. (b) If an alternative line item structure is proposed, the structure must be consistent with subpart 204.71 of the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement and PGI 204.71 (DFARS/PGI view). A sample line item structure and a proposed alternative structure are as follows: Solicitation: ITEM NO. SUPPLIES/SERVICE QUANTITY UNIT UNIT PRICE AMOUNT 0001 Computer, Desktop with CPU, Monitor, Keyboard and Mouse 20 EA Alternative line item structure offer where monitors are shipped separately: ITEM NO. SUPPLIES/SERVICE QUANTITY UNIT UNIT PRICE AMOUNT 0001 Computer, Desktop with CPU, Keyboard and Mouse 20 EA 0002 Monitor 20 EA (End of provision) 252.225-7048 Export Controlled Items (Jun 2013) (a) Definition. "Export-controlled items," as used in this clause, means items subject to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) (15 CFR Parts 730-774) or the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) (22 CFR Parts 120-130).

The Contractor shall consult with the Department of State regarding any questions relating to compliance with the ITAR and shall consult with the Department of Commerce regarding any questions relating to compliance with the EAR. (c) The Contractor's responsibility to comply with all applicable laws and regulations regarding export-controlled items exists independent of, and is not established or limited by, the information provided by this clause. (d) Nothing in the terms of this contract adds, changes, supersedes, or waives any of the requirements of applicable Federal laws, Executive orders, and regulations, including but not limited to- (1) The Export Administration Act of 1979, as amended (50 U.S.C. App. 2401, et seq.); (2) The Arms Export Control Act (22 U.S.C. 2751, et seq.); (3) The International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701, et seq.); (4) The Export Administration Regulations (15 CFR Parts 730-774); (5) The International Traffic in Arms Regulations (22 CFR Parts 120-130); and (6) Executive Order 13222, as extended.

MSC SPECIFIC WIDE AREA WORKFLOW (WAWF) INSTRUCTIONS (AUG 2012) The information contained in this instruction is supplemental to DFARS 252.232-7006. The information contained in the table in DFARS 252.232-7006 is for WAWF purposes only. Information included in DFARS 252.232-7006 and this WAWF instruction apply only to WAWF Invoicing and WAWF Receiving Reports.

When entering the invoice into WAWF, the Contractor shall fill in the DoDAAC fields or DoDAAC extensions exactly as shown in the table in DFARS 252.232-7006. Fields that should not be filled in when entering the invoice into WAWF will be indicated with the direction, "Leave Blank." In some situations the WAWF system will pre-populate the "Pay DoDAAC," "Admin By DoDAAC" and "Issue By DoDAAC." The Contractor shall verify that those DoDAACs automatically entered by the WAWF system match the information in the table in DFARS 252.232-7006.

The Contractor shall bill to the lowest level, e.g., the SubCLIN level. The Quantity and Unit of Measure fields must be filled out exactly as indicated in the CLINs and SubCLINs to reduce the possibility of the invoice being delayed or rejected during processing.

The Contractor shall click on this link and add the Technical Point of Contact's (TPOC) or Contracting Officer's Representative's (COR) email address in the first email address block and add any other additional email addresses desired in the following blocks.

PROJECT INFORMATION. Firms must be capable of performing work to support the planning, design, construction and operation of facilities for the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency in the St. Louis Area. This work will include a replacement campus for the 2nd Street facilities known as the Next NGA West (N2W) program, and could include task orders related to disposition of the 2nd Street facility. The project is tentatively planned for construction to occur in the FY18 through FY22 timeframe. Programming efforts under this AE contract are expected to begin late FY15, with design commencing in FY16. The site has not been selected but will be in Missouri or Illinois. The campus complex would consist of the following facilities/improvements: a. Secure Analytics Facility (SCIF) (approx 800,000 sf) b. Central Utilities Plant (approx 40,000 sf) c. Structured Parking (approx 1,000,000 sf) d. Visitor Control Center (VCC) (approx 7,300 sf) e. Remote Vehicle/Truck Inspection Facility (approx 6,500 sf) f. Associated Site improvements (roads, utilities, landscaping, etc) g. AE design support for Installation of furniture, fixtures and equipment (FF&E), initial outfitting and transition (IO&T), and Installation of Secure Mission Production Equipment. The facility will provide an open flexible work environment that is scalable, reconfigurable, and adaptive to changing mission requirements and the associated changes in workflow and data sharing methodologies. The acquisition strategy for the associated construction contract(s) for the N2W program has not been finalized. However, strategies which offer maximum opportunity for early collaboration between the construction contractor and the design team are anticipated, and will require the selected AE firm to produce 100% plans and specifications under one or more task orders. This contract also could be used to produce design-build bridging documents for some of the ancillary N2W facilities. When this contract is used in the development of bridging and related documents for use in a design-build selection (FAR 36.302), the Architect-Engineer and supporting consulting firms shall be prohibited from competition in any design-build solicitation in accordance with FAR 9.505-2 (Preparing Specifications or Work Statements) and FAR 36.209 (Construction Contracts with Architect-Engineer Firms). The work may include the preparation of special reports, planning and design charrettes, studies, development of design criteria for performance contracts, and design of construction as needed. The task orders may include design work involving site investigation, geotechnical reports, topographic surveys, preparation of contract drawings, technical specifications, design analyses, life cycle cost analyses, and computer aided cost estimating. Electronic security system design, anti-terrorism/force protection design, progressive collapse, blast modeling and analysis and network engineering will be required. Innovative office design and sustainable strategies will be required. Net Zero is a desired target and if not currently attainable, design shall include provisions for future attainability. Resiliency and reliability are both important issues. Basic and enhanced commissioning, as well as acting as the commissioning agent, may also be required. Construction phase services, including shop drawing review, design during construction, site visits, etc., could be included in task orders. Building Information Modeling (BIM) technologies, CADD and GIS deliverables will also be required. Deliverables in Microstation or AutoCAD format will be required. In addition to CADD, the use of the latest BIM will be required. The BIM must be compliant with the latest version of the Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) as established by the International Alliance for Interoperability (IAI). Specific needs will be determined based upon project requirements as described in each task order. Project assignments will typically require performance in an office setting and on-site. Some task orders would receive, process, and store classified information at the SECRET level. For those task orders, AE firms are required to employ staff with a SECRET clearance or capable of obtaining a SECRET clearance, qualified to perform the anticipated project work as well as access to a Defense Security System (DSS) certified computer system. Additionally, some tasks may require a Top Secret/Sensitive Compartmented Information (TS/SCI) clearance. 3. SELECTION CRITERIA. The selection criteria are listed below in descending order of importance (first by major criterion and then by each sub-criterion). Criteria a-e are primary and will be evaluated for all offerors. Criteria f-h are secondary and will only be used as tie-breakers among firms that are essentially technically equal. a. Specialized experience and technical competence in: (1) Design of new or major renovation of highly complex mission critical computer and data facilities with highly reliable, redundant support systems similar in scope to the NGA campus described above. Experience shall include use of innovative office design (including furniture, fixtures and equipment) for a fully integrated, self- contained corporate campus. The basis of the evaluation will be the information in Section F of the SF 330. (2) Network and Security Engineering. Experience with the design and integration of extensive, robust, internal communication networks (wired, wireless, unclassified, and classified) into building systems architecture, highly complex and innovative audio-visual and graphic display. Experience in the design of sensitive compartmented information facilities. Experience with all forms of electronic security (card readers, cameras, etc). Experience in design of Department of Defense anti- terrorism/force protection (AT/FP) design criteria and construction standards to include blast analysis. Projects at least 50% construction complete as of Jan 2012 will receive higher ratings. The basis for the evaluation will be the information in Section F of the SF 330. (3) Experience in sustainable design employing the LEED evaluation and certification methods, ASHRAE 189.1 and/or Net Zero and application of latest sustainability and energy technologies, such as tri-generation, solar, wind, chilled beams, etc. Design for support of enhanced commissioning and leading enhanced commissioning efforts will also be evaluated. The basis of the evaluation will be the information in Section F of the SF 330. (4) Experience working on projects requiring secret or TS/SCI clearance. The basis of the evaluation will be the information in Section F of the SF 330. (5) Quality management. The evaluation will consider quality control coordination between disciplines and subcontractors and quality control procedures (type and timing of reviews). The effectiveness of the proposed project team (including management structure, coordination of disciplines, offices and/or subcontractors; and prior working relationships) will be considered within quality management. The basis of the evaluation will be the description of the firm's quality management procedures in Section H of the SF 330. A detailed quality control plan is not required with this submission but will be required subsequent to award of the contract. (6) Experience working in a collaborative environment with other contractors supporting project requirements, goals and objectives. This should include the ability to work directly with a construction contractor in a preconstruction and construction environment to meet project goals including design performance, life cycle cost, and initial construction cost and construction schedule. It is anticipated that the Government will have other contracts supporting project requirements including but not limited to Information Technology (IT) systems, Security Managements Systems (SMS), relocation planning, deployment and office moving. The firm selected for this contract should have considerable experience and ability to work in a collaborative environment with all other contractors involved in the support of the project as well as overarching program and mission objectives. The basis for the evaluation will be the information in Section F of the SF 330. b. Professional Qualifications Responding firms should demonstrate the professional qualifications in these key disciplines (in no particular order of importance): 1) project management 2) network engineering 3) architecture 4) mechanical 5) electrical 6) fire protection 7) structural 8) civil 9) physical security 10) electronic security 11) cost estimating 12) land surveying 13) geotechnical engineering 14) building commissioning 15) interior design 16) landscape architecture The basis of evaluation will be information provided in section E of the SF 330. The SF 330 shall include a matrix in Section G showing experience of the proposed lead designers on the projects listed in Section F of the SF 330. The education, professional registration, certifications, overall and relevant experience, longevity with the firm will be considered. Experience on similar projects will have greater importance. The lead designer for each discipline shall be registered as required by FAR 36.609-4 and 52.236-25, but does not have to be registered in the particular state where the project is located. This criterion is primarily concerned with the qualifications of the key personnel and not the number of personnel. The number of personnel is addressed under the capacity criterion below. c. Past Performance Past performance on DoD and other contracts with respect to cost control, quality of work, and compliance with performance schedules. Architect-Engineer Contract Administration Support System (ACASS) merged into a single application under the Contractor Performance Assessment Reports System (CPARS). CPARS is the primary source of information on past performance. CPARS will be queried for all firms submitting a SF330. If deemed appropriate by the evaluation board, performance evaluations for any significant team subcontractors who have previously been prime A-E contractors may also be considered. The board will consider the relevancy of each performance evaluation on AE services contracts to the proposed contract, including the type of work, performing office, age of the evaluation, and whether subsequent evaluations indicate a change in a firm's performance. In addition to CPARS, the board may seek information on past performance from other sources. In particular, the board may evaluate the responding firm's past performance working in a collaborative environment with other contractors. Each project in Section F of the SF 330 shall include contact information for the owner, the construction contractor, and other stakeholders. A firm that has earned excellent evaluations and/or positive feedback on recent DoD and other contracts for similar size, scope, and complexity of projects will be given additional consideration. d. Knowledge of the locality Knowledge of local conditions within Missouri and Illinois, specifically regarding: (1) climatic conditions (key disciplines: architect, mechanical, civil); (2) local construction methods, including geotechnical and seismic considerations (key disciplines: architect, structural, geotechnical, civil) and (3) local construction climate impact on cost estimating (estimator). One rating will be determined for each of the three conditions. Within each condition, appropriate experience must be shown in each discipline to be counted. Experience in the greater St. Louis area will have greater importance. Evaluation will look at the specific experience of the proposed team as stated in Section E of the SF 330. e. Capacity to initiate work and complete within the time parameters of the project. The evaluation will consider the availability of an adequate number of personnel in the following key disciplines: architect; mechanical; electrical; civil; structural. The evaluation will look at numbers listed in Part II of the SF330 to evaluate the overall capacity of the team. Include a Part II form for each firm that is part of the proposed team. Secondary Selection Criteria. The following secondary criteria will only be used as a tie-breaker among firms that are essentially technically equal. The secondary criteria will not be co-mingled with the primary criteria in the evaluation. The three secondary selection criteria are listed in descending order of importance. f. Geographic Proximity. Responding firms should identify any offices operated in close proximity to the St. Louis metropolitan area and the contribution these office(s) will make in support of the project. g. SB Participation.

If no time is specified in the solicitation, the time for receipt is 4:30 p.m., local time, for the designated Government office on the date that offers or revisions are due. (2) Any offer, modification, revision, or withdrawal of an offer received at the Government office designated in the solicitation after the exact time specified for receipt of offers is "late" and will not be considered unless it is received before award is made, the Contracting Officer determines that accepting the late offer would not unduly delay the acquisition; and-- (A) If it was transmitted through an electronic commerce method authorized by the solicitation, it was received at the initial point of entry to the Government infrastructure not later than 5:00 p.m. one working day prior to the date specified for receipt of offers; or (B) There is acceptable evidence to establish that it was received at the Government installation designated for receipt of offers and was under the Government's control prior to the time set for receipt offers; or (C) If this solicitation is a request for proposals, it was the only proposal received.

(4) Offers may be withdrawn by written notice received at any time before the exact time set for receipt of offers. (11) Contract award. The Air Force intends to evaluate offers and award a contract without discussions with offerors. The offeror's initial offer should contain the offeror's best terms from a price and technical standpoint. However, the Government reserves the right to conduct discussions if later determined by the Contracting Officer to be necessary. If the Air Force opens discussions, the competitive range may include proposals rated as "Unacceptable" at the discretion of the Contracting Officer. The Air Force may make a final determination as to whether an Offeror's proposal is acceptable or unacceptable solely on the basis of the initial proposal. The Government may reject any or all offers if such action is in the public interest; accept other than the lowest offer; and waive informalities and minor irregularities in offers received.

(End of provision) 52.212-2 Evaluation-Commercial Items (Jan 1999) (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: Please provide your proposal in two sections: Section I, Technical and Section II, Price, Section II Past Performance. The technical evaluation sub-factors are below. An offeror's technical proposal must be acceptable in all factor areas in order to receive an overall "Acceptable" technical rating. A single "Unacceptable" rating for any of the technical sub-factors will result in an "Unacceptable" technical rating, and is considered unawardable. The order of importance of the technical sub-factors is considered equal. Sub-factor A: SERVICES REQUESTED The offeror's proposal clearly describes the processes, procedures and tools, that will be used to meet requirements of PWS Tasks 3.1, 3.2 including expanded descriptions in Attachment 1 PEX System Administration and Attachment UL/UC2 Ops System Administration. The offeror's proposal clearly describe Turn-Around-Time IAW PWS 3.3.2 in a way that demonstrates the offeror understands the performance threshold defined in the Service Summary (PWS 5.0 Item 1) The offeror's proposal clearly describes the processes and procedures, that will be used to ensure system administrators meet and maintain DoD 8570.01-M requirements, PWS 3.2.2 b and required skill to support windows server system administration including virtual machine environment, PWS 3.2.2d The offeror's proposal clearly describes how Up-time (Operational Availability) will be tracked and managed for individual outages to ensure PWS thresholds are met (See PWS 3.3.2.3b for Up-time requirement, 5.3 - Service Summary Performance Thresholds, item 7). Sub-factor B: Program Management The offeror's proposal clearly describes the corporate and site specific management concept, organizational structure, and use of a Quality Control plan (PWS 4.2) to execute daily operations and maintenance services at supported sites. The offeror's proposal clearly describes the approach required for management of travel requirement defined under PWS 8.4 and billing process stated under PWS 3.3.3.2 The offeror's proposal clearly describes the approach required for material purchases as stated in PWS 7.2 required to ensure repairs and up-time, 3.3.6, how materials will be invoiced as defined under 3.3.3.1, how materials will be reported/tracked as defined under 4.1.2. The offeror's proposal clearly describes the approach to hire qualified core FTE workforce, PWS 3.1.2, 3.2.2 and 7.3, at required locations, PWS 8.1.1, to perform day one. Show understanding of qualification requirements and process to establish a FTE at required locations The offeror's proposal clearly describes the approach to maintain performance thresholds (PWS 5.3 Services Summary Table) during periods of manning fluctuations (i.e. attrition, vacation or illness) for locations of performance (PWS 8.1.1). ***Sub-factor C: Transition Planning The offeror's proposal clearly describes a phase-in transition plan that meets the requirements of PWS 10.1. (b) Limit your Technical Section to no more than 15 pages. (c). To provide for an easy evaluation, the Technical Section shall be specific, detailed and complete to clearly and fully demonstrate that Offerors have a thorough understanding of the requirement. The proposal must clearly meet the minimum requirements of the solicitation. Statements that Offerors understand, can, or will comply with the PWS (including referenced documents, etc.); statements paraphrasing the PWS or phrases such as "standard procedures will be employed" or "well know techniques will be used" or "work will continue as it has in the past" will be considered "Unacceptable" For the technical section to be considered acceptable, offerors' must clearly address each evaluation factor under the technical evaluation adequately. Any item not adequately addressed could be found unacceptable.. (d) Options. Clause 52.217-8 will be included in the final contract. This clause allows for continued performance of any services within the time limits and rates specified in the contract. Therefore each offeror must price a six month option period by a monthly amount. It is anticipated that 52.217-8 will be used to extend the contract anywhere from one to six months at the end of the initial 12-month period. The Government will evaluate offers for award purposes by adding the total price for the entire six month option 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 the option shall not obligate the Government to exercise the option(s). Price Evaluation Factor: The Price evaluation is expected to be based on adequate price competition. However, if necessary, the evaluation team reserves the right to use any proposal analysis technique in FAR Par 15.404-1 to ensure the contract is issued at a fair and reasonable price. Please follow the outline CLIN structure contained within the attached pricing spreadsheet. This is provided as a guide to help develop your pricing proposal. The spreadsheet has built-in formulas to sub-total and summarize each offeror's price. As the contractor, simply enter the monthly price from your supporting price proposal into the "Line Item Price" column for each CLIN. It is the intended CLIN structure for the contract. The estimated annual cost of cost-reimbursement line items (Travel and Material/Software Purchase) is identified by the Government and will be applied to all offers received. An offeror may not change the ceiling price, and no handling fees or profit may be applied. All pricing must be on a Firm Fixed Price basis as a monthly amount. NOTE: There is great expectation of competition for this requirement: thus offerors are cautioned to present their best price proposal up-front. The offeror's price proposal shall represent the offeror's best effort to respond to the solicitation. In instances where an offeror receives an acceptable technical rating, yet proposed prices appear exceptionally low, offerors may be requested to address this disparity, providing evidence of their capability and/or experience providing similar service(s) at similar price(s). An exceptionally or unrealistically low offer may pose an unacceptable risk to the Government and may be a reason to reject an offeror's proposal. As noted, the six month option price (Clause 52.217-8) will be added to the total and be evaluated as part of the Total Overall Evaluated Price (TOEP). There is no page limit for the Price Section. Past Performance: Past performance will be evaluated based on responsibility analysis in accordance with FAR 9.103. The standards contained within FAR 9.104-1, including having a record of satisfactory performance record and integrity and business ethics, serve as the guidelines for this determination. The offeror must be determined responsible to receive the contract. Please provide up to three (3) samples of relevant past performance with Point of Contact/Telephone Number.
