FEDERAL HOLIDAYS: The following Federal Legal Holidays are observed by this base:New Year's Day 1 JanuaryMartin Luther King's Birthday Third Monday in JanuaryPresidents Day Third Monday in FebruaryMemorial Day Last Monday in MayIndependence Day 4 JulyLabor Day First Monday in SeptemberColumbus Day Second Monday in OctoberVeterans Day 11 NovemberThanksgiving Day Fourth Thursday in NovemberChristmas Day 25 December ADDENDUM TO 52.212-2 Evaluation - Commercial Items BASIS FOR CONTRACT AWARD: This is a competitive best value award decision in which competing offerors' past performance history will be evaluated on a basis of past performance being more important than price. By submission of its offer, the offeror accedes to all solicitation requirements, including terms and conditions, representations and certifications, and technical requirements, in addition to those identified as evaluation factors. Offerors must clearly identify any exception to the solicitation terms and conditions and provide complete accompanying rationale.
Price Evaluation: The government shall rank all offers by price, including any option prices. An offeror's proposed prices will be determined by multiplying the quantities identified by the proposed unit price for each contract line item number (CLIN) to confirm the extended amount for each. Offerors whose total evaluated price is unreasonable (in accordance with FAR 15.404 and FAR 31.201-3), unbalanced (in accordance with FAR 15.404-1), or unaffordable (not within any budgetary information included in the solicitation) may not be considered for award.
Performance Confidence Assessment: The contracting officer shall seek recent and relevant performance information on all offerors based on (1) questionnaires; (2) the past efforts provided by the offeror and (3) data independently obtained from other government i.e. Past Performance Information Retrieval System (PPIRS); Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System (FAPIIS); Electronic Subcontract Reporting System (eSRS), or other databases; and interviews/questionnaires with Program Managers, Contracting Officers and Fee Determining Officials, and commercial sources and commercial sources. The government reserves the right to seek information on higher priced offerors if none of the lower priced offerors receive a "Substantial Confidence" performance confidence assessment.
a. Recent past performance is identified as relevant past performance performed within the last five years and relevant past performance is defined as successfully maintaining and repairing a variety of air compressors to various locations. The purpose of the past performance evaluation is to allow the government to assess the offeror's probability of meeting the solicitation requirements based on the offeror's demonstrated past performance. The assessment process will result in an overall performance confidence assessment of Substantial Confidence, Satisfactory Confidence, Limited Confidence, No Confidence, or Unknown Confidence. Past performance regarding predecessor companies, key personnel who have relevant experience, or subcontractors that will perform major or critical aspects of the requirement will not be rated as highly as past performance information for the principal offeror. Offerors with no recent/relevant performance history or if the offeror's performance record is so sparse that no meaningful confidence assessment rating can be reasonably assigned shall receive the rating "Unknown Confidence," meaning the rating is treated neither favorably nor unfavorably (neutral).
b. In evaluating past performance, the Government reserves the right to give greater consideration to information on those contracts deemed most relevant to the effort described in this RFQ.
c. If the lowest priced offer is judged to have a "Substantial Confidence" performance confidence assessment, that offer represents the best value for the government and the evaluation process stops at this point. Award shall be made to that offeror without further consideration of any other offers.
d. If the lowest priced offeror is not judged to have a "Substantial Confidence" performance confidence assessment, the next lowest priced offeror will be evaluated and the process will continue (in order by price) until an offeror is judged to have a "Substantial Confidence" performance assessment or until all offerors are evaluated. The Contracting Officer shall then make an integrated assessment best value award decision.
e. Offerors are cautioned to submit sufficient information and in the format specified. Offeror's may be asked to clarify certain aspects of their offer (for example, the relevance of past performance information) or respond to adverse past performance information to which the offeror has not previously had an opportunity to respond. Adverse past performance is defined as past performance information that supports a less than satisfactory rating on any evaluation element or any unfavorable comments received from sources without a formal rating system. Communication conducted to resolve minor or clerical errors will not constitute discussions and the contracting officer reserves the right to award a contract without the opportunity for quote revision.
f. Offerors are responsible for submitting a well-written quote with adequately-detailed information that allows for a meaningful review by the procuring agency. Those offers who do not provide the detailed information risks an unfavorable rating.LIST OF ATTACHMENTS: •Attachment 1: Pricing Schedule •Attachment 2: Performance Work Statement (PWS) (7 pages) •Attachment 3: Federal Acquisition Regulation clause 52.212-3 Alt 1 •Attachment 4: Wage Determinations 15-4191 Rev. 3 25 July 17 (Burlington County) and 15-4195 Rev 3 25 June 17 (Ocean County) •Attachment 5: Past Performance Questionnaire•Attachment 6: Security Forces Appendix
