The Government will not reimburse interested parties for any cost associated with responding to this business opportunity. All responsible sources may submit a quotation which will be considered by the agency. The anticipated contract award date is on or before March 27, 2015. BASIS FOR AWARD: The government intends to award a fixed-price contract to the responsible quoter whose quotation is responsive to the solicitation and is determined to be the best value to the Government, using the tradeoff approach. Selection of the best value to the Government will be achieved through a process of evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of each quoter's quotation against the below described evaluation criteria. In determining the best value to the Government, the Technical Capability and Past Performance Evaluation Criteria, when combined, are more important than the evaluated price. The Government is more concerned about obtaining a superior Technical Capability quotation than making an award at the lowest evaluated price. However, the Government will not make an award at a price premium it considers disproportionate to the benefits associated with the evaluated superiority of one technical and management quotation over another. Thus, to the extent that quoter's technical and past performance quotations are evaluated as close or similar in merit, the evaluated price is more likely to be a determining factor. EVALUATION FACTORS FOR AWARD: The following factors shall be used to evaluate quotations. These factors are listed in their relative order of importance: Technical Capability, Past Performance and Price. Factor 1 - Technical Capability: (a) Contract Requirements. Quotations will be evaluated on the quoter's ability to provide all of the contract requirements regarding meeting space, food and beverage, audio-visual equipment and technical support, and lodging. Quotations must address the quoter's ability to meet ADA requirements for accessibility as it relates to meeting space, lodging and parking. Quotations should reflect the quality of the customer services provided, the layout design and quality of the facilities as reflected by the physical layout and atmosphere of meeting space, amenities such as free Wi-Fi in the conference space, and upkeep of the facilities. (b) Location. Quotations will be evaluated on the ability of the quoter to provide a facility within 20 miles of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's Atlanta District Office Postal Code area 30303, with adequate low cost or free on-site parking for participants and presenters. (c) Availability of Dates - Base Year 2015. Quoters will be evaluated on the ability of the quoter to provide the required services on the dates requested. Additional consideration will be given to quoters who can provide the required services on the preferred dates in order of preference, (i.e., 1st choice date, 2nd choice date, and 3rd choice date). (d) Availability of Dates - Option Year 2016. Quoters will be evaluated on the ability of the quoter to provide the required services on the dates requested. Additional consideration will be given to quoters who can provide the required services on the preferred dates in order of preference, (i.e., 1st choice date, 2nd choice date and 3rd choice date) in Option Year 2016. Factor 2 - Past Performance: The quoter must provide references for a minimum of three (3) government or non-government contracts which provided the same or similar services; contracts must have been awarded within the past three (3) years. One of the references should be a government/federal agency. The information for each reference shall include the following: 1. Name and address of government agency and other non-government client; 2. Name, title, email and telephone number of Contracting Officer or other point of contact; 3. Name, title, email and telephone number of client's Program Manager, if applicable; 4. Contract number, period of performance, and total contract value; and 5. Description of services provided. EEOC will evaluate past performance in terms of customer service on similar requirements, feedback from references on meeting room design/layout and quality/upkeep of facilities and décor, and the availability of amenities and staff to support the conference. A quoter without a record of relevant past performance or for whom information on past performance is not available; the quoter may not be evaluated favorably or unfavorably on past performance. Factor 3 - Price: The price quotation will be evaluated against the independent Government Price Estimated. Evaluations of quotations will consider the following pricing information: pricing provided for all line items listed in the Schedule of Supplies and Services of this RFQ in the units and format provided; pricing of recommended menu options for breakfast, lunch, snacks and beverages; rates for business services, sleeping room rates; and all cost options for transportation and facility parking rates. Evaluation of Options: Except when it is determined in accordance with FAR 17.206(b) not to be in the Government's best interests, the Government will evaluate quoters for award purposes by adding the total price for the option to the total price for the basic requirement. Evaluation of the option will not obligate the Government to exercise the option. Site Visits: The EEOC reserves the right to conduct a site visit of all quoters who are rated to be technically acceptable. The site visit will review and evaluate the same technical items identified in the Technical Capabilities Portion of the technical evaluation factors. Notice: The Government intends to evaluate quotations and make award without discussions (except clarifications as described in FAR 15.306(a)). Therefore, the quoter's initial quote should contain the quoter's best terms from a price and technical standpoint. The Government reserves the right to conduct discussions, if the Contracting Officer later determines them to be necessary. The Government also reserves the right to conduct a site visit prior to award. Applicable Provisions and Clauses: The provisions at 52.212-1, Instructions to Offerors - Commercial Items applies to this acquisition. The vendor shall include a completed copy of the provisions at 52.212-3, Offeror Representations and Certifications - Commercial Items with your quote submission. The Contracting Officer has determined that paragraph 52.212-3(k)(2) which pertains to exemption from the application of the Service Contract Labor Standards applies.
