EVALUATION CRITERIA: ADDENDUM TO FAR 52.212-2 - EVALUATION CRITERIA: Award will be made to the responsible (see also DFARS 252.213-7000), responsive Offeror whose offer represents the Best Value to the Government based upon a comparative evaluation of offers IAW FAR 13.106-2.

The Government shall evaluate the Offerors stated technical capabilities (see para 3 under "Submission Requirements" above) for the requirement contained in Attachment 1 - Statement of Work. Included in the technical factor is consideration of whether or not the Offeror is within the 100 mile radius requirement in order for Government personnel to travel to observe the work at various points in this effort. All Offerors are reminded that unsupported promises to comply with the contractual requirements will not be sufficient to be deemed technically acceptable. Proposals must not merely reiterate or paraphrase the contractual requirements, but rather must provide convincing documentary evidence in support of any conclusive statements relating to the capabilities claimed. The Government may obtain Past Performance information to facilitate its evaluation of Past Performance from any sources available to the Government, to include, but not limited to, the Past Performance Information Retrieval System (PPIRS), Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System (FAPIIS), Electronic Subcontract Reporting System (eSRS), or other databases; interviews with Program Managers, Contracting Officers, and Fee Determining Officials; and the Defense Contract Management Agency.
