The provision at 52.212-2, Evaluation -- Commercial Items applies to this RFQ. Paragraph (a) of this provision is as follows: The Government intends to award a contract resulting from this solicitation to the responsible VIP Verified Quoter whose quote conforming to the solicitation will be most advantageous to the Government. The Government has determined that best value will be achieved by using a Lowest Priced Technically Acceptable approach to determine best value. The following factors shall be used to evaluate quotes: A. Delivery Approach; B. Price **********************END OF 52.212-2, Paragraph (a) ********************* Additional evaluation information: Delivery Approach- Government will review delivery approach to determine whether ammunition meets the SOW requirements. Note that there are both Brand Name Only ad Brand Name or Equal requirements. Price- Price will not be evaluated adjectivally or assigned a score. Price will be evaluated to determine whether it is fair and reasonable. For a price to be reasonable, it must represent a price to the Government that a prudent person would pay when consideration is given to prices in the market. The Government expects that price reasonableness will be established through adequate price competition, but it may also determine price reasonableness through price analysis techniques as described in FAR 13.106-3. The Government will evaluate quotes, by adding all established pricing elements (inclusive of options) to determine the final/total price. Note that formal evaluation plans and establishing a competitive range, conducting discussions, and scoring quotations or offers are not required. The Contracting Officer may conduct comparative evaluations of quotes. Although Past Performance is not evaluated as a separate evaluation element, the Government will consider past performance when performing its responsibility determination of the apparent awardee.
