All clauses shall be incorporated by reference in the order. Additional contract terms and conditions applicable to this procurement are: (a) Offerors need only submit a signed proposal by the solicitation closing that 1) shows the offeror is not taking exception to any solicitation term; 2) includes the FAR 52.212-3 Certifications and Representations; and 3) includes unit prices and total prices for all line items for which the Navy is soliciting a price. OFFERORS SHOULD NOT SUBMIT ANY ADDITIONAL INFORMATION WITH THEIR PROPOSAL. After the solicitation closing date, the contracting officer may require an offeror to promptly submit information to demonstrate the offeror is responsible. (See Section M). The Government will make a single award using a low 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, an offeror must submit a proposal that does not take exception to any term of the solicitation. The contracting officer will use the following rating table: Rating Description Acceptable Proposal does not take exception to any term of solicitation and therefore clearly meets the requirements of the solicitation. Unacceptable Proposal 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 for which the Government has requested the offeror provide a price. An award will only be made to an offeror 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 an offeror or require the offeror provide information to substantiate that it satisfies the general responsibility standards of FAR 9.104-1. The particular information requested from an offeror will be specific to that offeror. For example, an offeror that the contracting officer is less familiar with may be required to provide information not required from another offeror. The contracting officer may consider an offeror’s inability to promptly respond to a request for information as an indication the offeror 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 offeror’s response, and all related communications between the Government and offeror are solely for the purpose of determining whether the offeror is responsible. These communications will not constitute discussions within the meaning of FAR 15.306 since the offeror will not be given an opportunity to revise its proposal. While the contracting officer may require the offeror 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 offeror has adequate financial resources to perform the contract. 2) A demonstration the offeror’s price is not so low as to call into question the offeror’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 offeror can comply with the required performance schedule, including a transition plan. 5) A demonstration the offeror 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 offeror. 6) The offeror’s quality assurance procedures. 7) The equipment and facilities the contractor will use. 8) Information demonstrating a proposed subcontractor satisfies the FAR 9.104-1 general standards of responsibility. 9) Completion of the Section K Certifications and Representations contained in this solicitation. 10) A demonstration the offeror isn’t an inverted domestic corporation. 11. Certificate of registration of the company. 12) A demonstration the offeror has all registrations, permits and licenses required to perform the contract in the locations for which the offeror is proposing. 13) In the event the offeror 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 offeror) or to use any other technique described FAR 9.1 when determining whether the offeror satisfies the FAR 9.104-1 general responsibility standards. As the Government considers these services professional, the Service Contract Act does not apply and no wage determination has been included. Both CLINs 0001 and 0002 shall, at minimum, include an excel spreadsheet (NO PDF) which provides the labor categories, the number of employees, and their respective hourly rate. If a separate rate is charged for Overtime hours, this should be disclosed. An hourly roll up, to include anticipated overtime allocation shall be included in this attachment. Omission of this information may result in a quote which the Government cannot determine technical and overall requirement comprehension and may result in a technically unacceptable bid. Though only a basic cost proposal shall be included with this quote, the offeror may be contacted and asked to provide additional information at a later time for the purposes of cost/price analysis. Award will be made to the offeror who provides the lowest priced, technically acceptably proposal. Technically Acceptable means the offeror has demonstrated they have/their personnel have the knowledge, expertise and experience to successfully perform their respective tasks in the PWS. Labor categories proposed is considered a method of determining technical acceptability. The Government reserves the right to clarify certain aspects of one or more of the proposals, without contacting all offerors, unless such communication is used to materially later the technical or cost elements and/or otherwise revise the proposal. Lowest priced, technically acceptable evaluation is conducted to determine the best overall value to the Government. As such, the evaluation will stop at the point when the Government determines an offeror to be acceptable with the lowest evaluated priced, because that offeror will represent the best value. Contingent upon a determination of contractor responsibility, award will be made to that offeror without further evaluation of other offers. Award will be made to the responsible vendor whose proposal is the lowest evaluation price among acceptable proposals. The Government will only consider firm fixed-price quotations. Offeror must complete and submit with the quotation FAR provision 52.212-3 Offeror Representations and Certifications-Commercial Items (MAR 2012) Offeror must be registered in the System for Award Management (SAM) prior to award.

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.

(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.

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.

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.
