FAR 52.212-2 Evaluation Commercial Items; (a) The Government plans to award a Firm Fixed Price contract resulting from this solicitation to the responsible Contractor whose quote conforming to the solicitation will be most advantageous to the Government, price and other factors considered. The following factors will be used to evaluate quotes. (i) Technical Capability to Perform: Sub-Factor (A): Technical Data Draft drawing of the proposed paint booth modification that will provide sufficient details indicating the contractor’s technical knowledge of the project. Parts Listing: Detailed listing of all parts, components etc that will be used in the modification process. Provide manufacturers name, part number quantity. This data will be evaluated by Government Technical personnel to determine a contractor’s technical capability of performing the project. Technical capability to perform represents the minimum acceptable criteria. Quotations submitted which provide all the requested Technical Data outlined under sub-factor (i) will be evaluated by the Government to determine an offerors technical capability. Quotations providing all request technical data will be evaluated and if determined to meet all technical requirements shall receive a rating of Technically Acceptable and will be further evaluated under Past Performance, Delivery and Price. Quotations that do not provide all the technical data requested will not be evaluated as the lack of information will not allow a thorough and complete evaluation to be conducted by Government evaluators. Quotations determined Technically Unacceptable under this factor and the sub-factor will render the quote to be unacceptable and to not be considered for award. By submitting a signed quotation the Contractor asserts that it is technically capable of performing the specifications under the SOW. The contracting officer will validate contractors’ technical capability to perform by verifying that the contractor that has supplied a quote has financial resources, organizational capabilities and facilities required to perform the contract. Technically Acceptable/Unacceptable Ratings Rating Description Acceptable Offeror clearly meets the minimum requirements of the solicitation and has provided the technical capability documentation required by this solicitation. Unacceptable Offeror does not clearly meet the minimum requirements of the solicitation and has not provided all the required technical capability documentation set forth under this solicitation. (ii) Past Performance The Contractor shall provide past performance history to demonstrate performance in providing same or similar type services as requested under this solicitation. The contractor shall provide a minimum of two past performance contract efforts and the Past Performance Information (PPI) data sheet shall be used to record the data. The PPI data sheet is Attachment (2) The following ratings listed below will be used to evaluate Past Performance. Past Performance Acceptable/Unacceptable Ratings Acceptable: Vendor has relevant past performance, no monetary assessment for non-conforming services, no terminations for default, met contract requirements for timely delivery and customer service. Unacceptable: Monetary assessment for non-conforming services, terminations for default or cause, poor performance, such as untimely delivery, poor customer service and inadequate equipment Neutral: No relevant past performance data available for evaluation. Past performance will be rated on the basis on relevance, quality, delivery or cost problems, corrective actions, and effectives of the corrective actions. The Government will give an “acceptable” past performance rating to quotations where the offeror has relevant past performance, no monetary assessment for non-conforming services, no terminations for default, met contract requirements for timely delivery and customer service. The Government will not make award to a quotation that the Government evaluates as “unacceptable” on past Performance. To be eligible for award, the Government must evaluate the past performance factor as acceptable. (iii) Delivery – The Government’s required delivery/completion date is (14) business days after receipt of order (ARO). This delivery/completion timeframe is firm and quotations that take acceptance to the Government’s timeframe may possibly not be considered as the best option for award consideration. (iv) Price – The solicitation has established Line Items for the services required. Contractors are to provide unit pricing as required for each specified Line Item under the RFQ. It is the intent of the Government to issue a “Firm Fixed Price” contract. NOTE: In addition to the unit pricing to be provided the contractor shall furnish the following pricing information: (A) Labor Services Labor Rate: Provide standard commercial hourly labor rate for each labor category to be utilized in the modification process and any related published labor rate price listing.

(C) Labor Hours: Provide the number of labor hours for each labor category to be used to complete the services outlined under this RFQ. (D) Parts Listing and Parts Pricing: Provide a breakdown of the parts to be used to complete the services and the associated parts pricing. NOTE: This pricing information shall be used by the Government to evaluate a quotation in making a determination that the pricing is fair and reasonable. Quotations that do not furnish this information may possibly not be considered for award as the absence of the data will not allow the Government to make a determination of fair and reasonable pricing. (b) A written notice of award otherwise furnished to the successful Quoting Contractor within the time for acceptance specified in the quote, shall result in a purchase order without further action by either party. Before the quotes specified expiration time, the Government may place a purchase order, whether or not there are negotiations after its receipt, unless a written notice of withdrawal is received before award. (d) At the discretion of the Contracting Officer, the Government intends to evaluate quotes and award a Firm Fixed Price purchase order without discussions. Each initial quote should, therefore contain the Contractor’s best terms from a technical, delivery and price standpoint.

MARKET VALUE: This position has been designated as a "tandem" position that, depending on the qualifications of the candidate, can be filled at either the GS-11 ($51,811- $67,354 per annum) or GS-12 ($62,101- $80,731 per annum) equivalent level. Final compensation will be negotiated within the listed market value of the GS-11 or GS-12 level depending on qualifications, previous relevant experience and work history, salary and educational background.

There is no obligation by OTI to provide assignments for a minimum number of days, and the contractor is free to provide "blackout" dates during which he or she will not be available to accept assignments. This recruitment is for an intermittent USPSC. Therefore, if a candidate is selected at the GS-11 grade, they do not have the opportunity for advancement to the GS-12 grade.

PLACE OF PERFORMANCE: Worldwide 8. SECURITY LEVEL REQUIRED: Secret 9. STATEMENT OF DUTIES POSITION DESCRIPTION BACKGROUND USAID's Office of Transition Initiatives (OTI) is seeking highly motivated, highly qualified individuals who want the opportunity to help support rapid international transition programs for priority conflict-prone countries. Created in 1994 as a distinct operating unit within USAID, OTI helps local partners advance peace and democracy in politically-transitioning countries. In support of U.S. foreign policy, OTI seizes emerging windows of opportunity in the political landscape to promote stability, peace, and democracy by catalyzing local initiatives through adaptive and agile programming. Countries experiencing a significant political transition in the midst of a disaster or emerging from civil conflict have unique needs that cannot be fully addressed by traditional disaster relief. Timely and effective assistance to promote and consolidate peaceful, democratic advances can make the difference between a successful or a failed transition. OTI assists in securing peace by aiding indigenous, mostly non-governmental, civil society and media organizations. OTI uses such mechanisms as support for re-integration of ex-combatants into civilian society; development of initiatives to promote national reconciliation; identification of quick-impact community self-help projects to meet urgent economic needs; and aid to independent media outlets and community-based organizations to help promote informed debate and broaden public participation. To respond quickly and effectively and meet its program objectives and mandate OTI retains a group of high level professionals and experts under U.S. Personal Services Contracts (USPSCs). These knowledgeable and skilled professionals make up the vast majority of the OTI work force and are at its forefront implementing and achieving the office's programmatic goals and objectives. Some of these USPSCs serve on intermittent contracts and are referred to in OTI as "bullpenners," providing support in a surge capacity. Those serving in the bullpen must be prepared to work both in Washington and the field, often with little time for preparations. USPSCs are considered employees of USAID for all purposes except programs administered by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) - such as federally sponsored health insurance, life insurance, and retirement benefits. However, there are several other similar benefits that USPSCs may participate in, such as partial reimbursement for health and life insurance costs, as well as full coverage of workers' compensation, among other benefits. For more complete information on USPSC benefits, please see page 14 of this solicitation. For more information about OTI and its country programs please see: http://www.usaid.gov/political-transition-initiatives INTRODUCTION The Operations Advisor is a key position in a busy office that responds rapidly to crisis situations. It is essential that DCHA/OTI personnel receive prompt support. To achieve this, OTI relies on Operations Advisors who have the capacity to work well within a team environment, provide necessary support to a team, and anticipate the needs of a complex organizational unit. A common characteristic among OTI staff is that they are operationally-minded, enjoy working in a fast-paced environment, and seek innovative ways to improve efficiency and effectiveness of operations support and programs. The Operations Advisor is experienced in the multitude of functions that comprise program operations for OTI programs, and provides services that require professionalism, knowledge, diplomacy and operational expertise in administrative support.

While most of the work will be performed in Washington, there may be requirements for field travel.

When the contractor or eligible family member is not covered by health insurance, the contractor is the primary payer for the total amount of medical costs incurred and the U.S. Government has no payment obligation (see paragraph (f) of this provision). (d) USAID serves as a secondary payer for medical expenses of the contractor and eligible family members who are covered by health insurance, where the following conditions are met: (1) The illness, injury, or medical condition giving rise to the expense is incurred, caused, or materially aggravated while the eligible individual is stationed or assigned abroad; (2) The illness, injury, or medical condition giving rise to the expense required or requires hospitalization and the expense is directly related to the treatment of such illness, injury, or medical condition, including obstetrical care; and (3) The Office of Medical Services (M/MED) or a Foreign Service medical provider (FSMP) determines that the treatment is appropriate for, and directly related to, the illness, injury, or medical condition. (e) The Mission Director may, on the advice of M/MED or an FSMP at post, authorize medical travel for the contractor or an eligible family member in accordance with the General Provision 10, Travel and Transportation Expenses (July 1993), section (i) entitled "Emergency and Irregular Travel and Transportation." In the event of a medical emergency, when time does not permit consultation, the Mission Director may issue a Travel Authorization Form or Medical Services Authorization Form DS-3067, provided that the FSMP or Post Medical Advisor (PMA) is notified as soon as possible following such an issuance. The contractor must promptly file a claim with his or her medevac insurance provider and repay to USAID any amount the medevac insurer pays for medical travel, up to the amount USAID paid under this section. The contractor must repay USAID for medical costs paid by the medevac insurer in accordance with sections (f) and (g) below. In order for medical travel to be an allowable cost under General Provision 10, the contractor must provide USAID written evidence that medevac insurance does not cover these medical travel costs. (f) If the contractor or eligible family member is not covered by primary health insurance, the contractor is the primary payer for the total amount of medical costs incurred. In the event of a medical emergency, the Medical and Health Program may authorize issuance of Form DS-3067, Authorization for Medical Services for Employees and/or Dependents, to secure admission to a hospital located abroad for the uninsured contractor or eligible family member. In that case, the contractor will be required to reimburse USAID in full for funds advanced by USAID pursuant to the issuance of the authorization. The contractor may reimburse USAID directly or USAID may offset the cost from the contractor's invoice payments under this contract, any other contract the individual has with the U.S. Government, or through any other available debt collection mechanism. (g) When USAID pays medical expenses (e.g., pursuant to Form DS-3067, Authorization for Medical Services for Employees and/or Dependents), repayment must be made to USAID either by insurance payment or directly by the contractor, except for the amount of such expenses USAID is obligated to pay under this provision. The Contracting Officer will determine the repayment amount in accordance with the terms of this provision and the policies and procedures for employees contained in 16 FAM 521. When USAID pays the medical expenses, including medical travel costs (see section (e) above), of an individual (either the contractor or an eligible family member) who is covered by insurance, that individual promptly must claim his or her benefits under any applicable insurance policy or policies. As soon as the individual receives the insurance payment, the contractor must reimburse USAID for the full amount that USAID paid on the individual's behalf or the repayment amount determined by the Contracting Officer in accordance with this paragraph, whichever is less. If an individual is not covered by insurance, the contractor must reimburse USAID for the entire amount of all medical expenses and any travel costs the contractor receives from his/her medevac provider. (h) In the event that the contractor or eligible family member fails to recover insurance payments or transfer the amount of such payments to USAID within 90 days, USAID will take appropriate action to collect the payments due, unless such failure is for reasons beyond the control of the USPSC/dependent. (i) Before departing post or terminating the contract, the contractor must settle all medical expense and medical travel costs. If the contractor is insured, he or she must provide proof to the Contracting Officer that those insurance claims have been submitted to the insurance carrier(s) and sign a repayment agreement to repay to USAID any amounts paid by the insurance carrier(s).

(e) Multiple offers. Offerors are encouraged to submit multiple offers presenting alternative terms and conditions or commercial items for satisfying the requirements of this solicitation.

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)(i) 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 of offers; or (C) If this solicitation is a request for proposals, it was the only proposal received. (ii) However, a late modification of an otherwise successful offer, that makes its terms more favorable to the Government, will be considered at any time it is received and may be accepted. (3) Acceptable evidence to establish the time of receipt at the Government installation includes the time/date stamp of that installation on the offer wrapper, other documentary evidence of receipt maintained by the installation, or oral testimony or statements of Government personnel. (4) If an emergency or unanticipated event interrupts normal Government processes so that offers cannot be received at the Government office designated for receipt of offers by the exact time specified in the solicitation, and urgent Government requirements preclude amendment of the solicitation or other notice of an extension of the closing date, the time specified for receipt of offers will be deemed to be extended to the same time of day specified in the solicitation on the first work day on which normal Government processes resume. (5) Offers may be withdrawn by written notice received at any time before the exact time set for receipt of offers. Oral offers in response to oral solicitations may be withdrawn orally. If the solicitation authorizes facsimile offers, offers may be withdrawn via facsimile received at any time before the exact time set for receipt of offers, subject to the conditions specified in the solicitation concerning facsimile offers.

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.
