Should the taxpayer seek tax court review, this will not be a final tax liability until the taxpayer has exercised all judicial appeal rights. (C) The taxpayer has entered into an installment agreement pursuant to I.R.C. §6159. The taxpayer is making timely payments and is in full compliance with the agreement terms. The taxpayer is not delinquent because the taxpayer is not currently required to make full payment. (D) The taxpayer has filed for bankruptcy protection.

[The Contracting Officer must list in paragraph (i)(1) any end products being acquired under this solicitation that are included in the List of Products Requiring Contractor Certification as to Forced or Indentured Child Labor, unless excluded at 22.1503(b).]

(A) The taxpayer has received a statutory notice of deficiency, under I.R.C. §6212, which entitles the taxpayer to seek Tax Court review of a proposed tax deficiency.

In the course of the hearing, the taxpayer is entitled to contest the underlying tax liability because the taxpayer has had no prior opportunity to contest the liability.

Should the taxpayer seek tax court review, this will not be a final tax liability until the taxpayer has exercised all judicial appeal rights. (C) The taxpayer has entered into an installment agreement pursuant to I.R.C. §6159. The taxpayer is making timely payments and is in full compliance with the agreement terms. The taxpayer is not delinquent because the taxpayer is not currently required to make full payment. (D) The taxpayer has filed for bankruptcy protection.

The request of a macular pigment densitometer is needed to support research in human vision and complications intrinsic to degraded visual environments. The requested macular pigment densitometer is considered to be the "gold standard" and is used in high quality research laboratories worldwide including the National Institute of Health (NIH).Table 1: Brand Name or Equal Macular Metrics II, LLC Macular Densitometer1.The densitometer must rely on human psychophysical techniques to measure the optical density (thickness) of the macular pigment. The macular pigment, composed of the carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin, overlays the retina's fovea, which is the part of the retina we use to see fine details.2.The densitometer must be validated to measure accurately the macular pigment without requiring complex and controversial mathematical models to account for the absorbance of light by the eye's lens, cornea, or vitreous.3.The densitometer must use heterochromatic flicker stimulus by requiring a simple response from the subject based upon what the subject sees while adjusting a flickering stimulus. The stimulus the subject looks at must have two colored lights; one color centralized around 460 nm (blue) and the other centralized around 550 nm (green).4.The 460 nm and 550 nm lights must be from Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) emitting very short (1.5 microsecond) pulses.5.Light levels generated by the system should be modest, not extremely bright or dim.6.The electronic control of the light output must be linear over a large range and should not require calibration.7.The flicker rate must be fully adjustable to allow testing to generate the optimal rate for each subject.8.The densitometer must be capable of making measurements in at least two retinal locations. One location should be in a defined location of the parafovea, and the other one at the fovea.9.At a minimum, the densitometer must be able to compare the energy of the blue light necessary for flicker minimization at the test locus in the fovea to the energy needed at the reference locus in the parafovea and provide this difference as the measure of macular pigment density.10.The densitometer must use high quality diffusers, precise back-projections optics, and high contract lithographic targets.11.The densitometer must have software that stores all raw data collected and accurately calculates the density of the macular pigment as a mean and standard deviation.12.The densitometer must be extremely rugged both electronically and optically, and be mechanically strong.13.The macular pigment densitometer must yield data that has been shown to be a valid measure and can be used to replicate hundreds of studies published in the scholarly literature related to the macular pigment.14.The device must be easy to use from the examiner's and the patient's point of view and the examination must take about 10 minutes, require no dilation of the pupil, and produce measures of the amount of macular pigment and a variance measure of performance.

(End of provision) 52.212-2 EVALUATION--COMMERCIAL ITEMS (OCT 2014) (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: Factor 1 - Technical Capability/SpecificationsFactor 2 - Price (b) Basis for Award: Award of this contract shall be made on a competitive best value basis using "Lowest Price, Technically Acceptable (LPTA)" approach. Evaluation will be made to identify all Offerors whose quotes are technically acceptable in accordance with this RFQ and the evaluation criteria set forth below. Award will be made to the Offeror from the pool of technically acceptable quotes, whose price is the lowest. The Offerors' quotes will be evaluated to ensure the Government receives a technically acceptable quote at a fair and reasonable price. Technical acceptability will be determined by evaluating the following non-price factor: Factor 1 - Technical Capability/SpecificationsThe Government evaluators will not assume the Offeror possesses the product/equipment unless specified in the quote.After the above non-price factor is rated individually, an overall rating will be assigned collectively to the factor. If the above non-price evaluation factor receives an individual rating of "Unacceptable", the collective overall rating will also be "Unacceptable". Only proposals receiving an overall rating of "Acceptable" will be considered for award.(c) Evaluation Criteria: The Offeror's quote for this requirement will be evaluated using the following criteria. An evaluation for technical acceptability will be made to ensure satisfactory responsiveness to the requirements set for in this RFQ. The non-price factor will be rated "Acceptable" or "Unacceptable" using the following rating standards: Factor 1. Technical Capability/Specification: The Offeror's quote shall be evaluated to the degree to which the Offeror demonstrates (1) an understanding of the requirement; (2) the Offeror is capable of providing the required products/equipment that meet the salient characteristics described in the MECs identified in Table 1; and (3) the Offeror is capable of delivering the products/equipment within the stated delivery schedule contained within this RFQ. Factor 2. Price: The Offeror's proposed price shall be evaluated separately from the non-price evaluation factor. Price quote evaluation is to determine whether the Offeror's proposed price is fair and reasonable in accordance with FAR 13.106-3. Price analysis will be used to determine the total evaluated price to support the selection of the lowest priced, technically acceptable Offeror. RatingDescriptionAcceptableProposal (Quote) clearly meets the minimum requirements of the solicitation (RFQ).UnacceptableProposal (Quote) does not clearly meet the minimum requirements of the solicitation (RFQ).(d) A written notice of award or acceptance of an offer, mailed or otherwise furnished to the successful offeror within the time for acceptance specified in the offer, shall result in a binding contract without further action by either party. Before the offer's 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. (End of provision) 52.212-3 OFFEROR REPRESENTATIONS AND CERTIFICATIONS--COMMERCIAL ITEMS (APR 2016) The Offeror shall complete only paragraph (b) of this provision if the Offeror has completed the annual representations and certification electronically via the System for Award Management (SAM) Web site accessed through http://www.acquisition.gov.
