52.212-2 EVALUATION--COMMERCIAL ITEMS (OCT 2014)
(a) Award Consideration
The Government will make a single award using the Lowest Price Technically Acceptable (LPTA) source selection.
The Government intends to award on initial offers but reserves the right to conduct discussions.
To be determined technically acceptable, a quoter must submit a quote that does not take exception to any terms of the solicitation. The Contracting Officer will use the following rating table:
Rating and Description
Acceptable - Quote does not take exception to any term of solicitation and therefore clearly meets the requirements of the solicitation.
Unacceptable - Quote takes exception to a solicitation term(s) and therefore does not clearly meet the requirements of the solicitation.
Price will be evaluated by totaling the prices for all line items and subline items for which the Government has requested the Quoter provide a price.
An award will only be made to a Quoter that satisfies the general responsibility standards of FAR 9.104-1.
The Contracting Officer may either make a responsibility determination without requesting any information from a quoter or require the Quoter provide information to substantiate that it satisfies the general responsibility standards of FAR 9.104-1. The particular information requested from a Quoter will be specific to that Quoter. For example, a Quoter that the Contracting Officer is less familiar with may be required to provide information not required from another Quoter. The Contracting Officer may consider a Quoter’s inability to promptly respond to a request for information as an indication the Quoter is nonresponsible since FAR 9.103(c) obligates prospective Contractors to affirmatively demonstrate their responsibility.
When the Contracting Officer requests responsibility information, the Contracting Officer’s request, the Quoter’s response, and all related communications between the Government and Quoter are solely for the purpose of determining whether the Quoter is responsible. These communications will not constitute discussions within the meaning of FAR 15.306 since the Quoter will not be given an opportunity to revise its quote.
While the Contracting Officer may require the Quoter to provide any information related to the standards at FAR 9.104-1, the following are examples of information that may be required:
1. A demonstration, through information such as bank references and financial information (e.g., most current annual balance sheet), that the Quoter has adequate financial resources to perform the contract.
2. A demonstration the Quoter’s price is not so low as to call into question the Quoter’s capability to successfully perform the contract.
3. Past Performance information on recent contracts for items similar to this requirement, including a point of contact for the Government activity or commercial entity customer.
4. A demonstration the Quoter can comply with the required performance schedule, including a transition plan.
5. A demonstration the Quoter has, or can obtain, the organizational, management and technical skills to successfully perform. This demonstration may involve the particular personnel and approaches available to the Quoter.
6. The Quoter’s quality assurance procedures.
7. The equipment and facilities the Contractor will use.
8. Contractors shall have a satisfactory record of integrity and business ethics in accordance with FAR 9.104-1(d).
9. Completion of the Representations and Certifications under 52.212-3 Alt I contained in this solicitation.
10. A demonstration the Quoter isn’t an inverted domestic corporation.
11. A demonstration the Quoter has all registrations, permits and licenses required to perform the contract in the location for which the Quoter is proposing.
12. In the event the Quoter is a joint venture, a Memorandum of Association which indicates who has the authority to bind the company.
Nothing in this provision limits the Contracting Officer’s discretion to rely on information available from other sources (e.g., past performance data bases, discussions with other entities familiar with the Quoter) or to use any other technique described FAR 9.1 when determining whether the Quoter satisfies the FAR 9.104-1 general responsibility standards.
In accordance with FAR 9.104-3(d), upon making a determination of non-responsibility with regard to a small business concern, the Contracting Officer shall refer the matter to the Small Business Administration, which will decide whether to issue a Certificate of Competency.
(b) A written notice of award or acceptance of an offer, mailed or otherwise furnished to the successful quoter within the time for acceptance specified in the offer, shall result in a binding contract without further action by either party.
Before the offers 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.
