(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: Technical and Price.
Quotations will be evaluated as follows:
The Technical evaluation factor is more important than the Price Proposal evaluation factor.
The Government will evaluate each vendor’s Written Technical submission acceptable (pass) or unacceptable (fail).
Technical Acceptability - Technical acceptability will be determined based on an evaluation of the vendor’s technical submission.
Written Technical Submittal:
Pass (P): Technical submission demonstrates that the information quoted meets the Government’s requirements as set forth in this Request for Quote.
Fail (F): Failing to provide any of the technical information and/or providing unclear or inadequate information proposed that does not meet the Government’s requirements.
Note: If the Contracting Officer determines that a vendor’s Written Technical Submission is “unacceptable,” that vendor’s entire submittal may be determined to be technically unacceptable and may no longer be considered for further competition or award.
The vendor’s proposed price will be evaluated on the basis of price reasonableness.
The evaluation may include, but is not limited to:
i. Price comparison with other offerors;
ii. Comparison with independent Government cost estimates.
Vendors responding to this solicitation are advised that, prior to award, the government may request vendors to submit information/data to support price reasonableness such as copies of paid invoices for the same or similar items, sales history for the same or similar items, price list with effective date and/or copies of catalog pages along with any applicable discounts. Failure to submit the requested information may result in disqualification of the submitted quote.

The Government will evaluate offers for award purposes by adding the total price for all options to the total price for the basic requirement. The Government may determine that an offer is unacceptable if the option prices are significantly unbalanced. Evaluation of options shall not obligate the Government to exercise the option(s).
(c) 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 offers 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.
