Technical. Next, the government technical evaluation team shall evaluate the technical proposal submitted by the lowest-priced offeror on an acceptable/unacceptable (pass/fail) basis, assigning a rating of Acceptable or Unacceptable. The Technical Capability Statement will be evaluated to ensure that it reflects a sound, logical approach to the performance of services during normal operations (non-emergency or crisis). The offerors proposal will be rated Acceptable or Unacceptable as defined in Table 1. If the lowest priced offeror is deemed to be acceptable 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. If the lowest priced offeror is deemed unacceptable, the next lowest priced offeror will be evaluated for technical acceptability and the process will continue (in order of lowest price) until an offeror is judged acceptable.
