The evaluation will consider the education, training, certification, overall and relevant experience and longevity with the firm for all key personnel. The prime contractor/joint venture must also show evidence of having the legal capability to sign and stamp design documents in Italy. The evaluation will consider the key personnels experience obtaining certification and compliance with all applicable U.S., and host nation laws, criteria and regulations primarily in Italy but also in Germany.

D. Capacity: Firms must demonstrate the capacity and capability to perform at least three large task orders simultaneously. The evaluation will consider the experience of the firm and any joint venture partners or consultants in similar projects and the availability of an adequate number of personnel in key disciplines.
