Description

COMBINED SYNOPSIS SOLICITATION ON-SITE CONFIDENTIAL SHREDDING SERVICE This is a combined synopsis/solicitation for commercial items prepared in accordance with the format in Subpart 12.6, as supplemented with additional information included in this notice. This announcement constitutes the only solicitation; quotes are being requested and a written solicitation will not be issued. The government anticipates a single (all or none), firm fixed price award. A quotation is not an offer and, consequently, cannot be accepted by the Government to form a binding contract. Therefore, issuance by the Government of an order in response to a supplier s quotation does not establish a contract. The order is an offer by the Government to the supplier to buy certain supplies or services upon specified terms and conditions. A contract is established when the supplier accepts the offer. The solicitation number is VA101V-17-Q-0424. This acquisition is issued as a Request for Quote (RFQ). The solicitation incorporates provisions and clauses in effect through Federal Acquisition Circular 2005-94, 2005-95, effective January 19, 2017. This procurement is being issued as SDVOSB/VOSB set-aside using Cascading Order of Precedence Procedures. Reference the below listed Evaluation Addendum detailed in paragraph X, for complete guidance on order of preference. The applicable NAICS Code for this solicitation is 332216 with a Small Business standard of 750 employees. The North Atlantic District Contracting Office requests responses from qualified sources capable of providing the following brand name or equal items: Delivery / Performance Period: 30 Days ARO FOB Destination Delivery to: Business Address Provided Upon Award Pittsburgh, PA 15203 Company Name: Company DUNS Number: Company Tax ID Number: Point of contact: Telephone: FAR 52.212-1, Instructions to Offerors Commercial Items (OCT 2016), applies to this solicitation.

The full text of the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) and Veterans Affairs Acquisition Regulations supplement (VAAR) can be accessed on the Internet at: http://www.acquisition.gov/far/index.html (FAR) http://www.va.gov/oal/library/vaar/index.asp (VAAR) 52.204-16 Commercial and Government Entity Code Reporting (JUL 2016) FAR 52.212-2, Evaluation -- Commercial Items (OCT 2014), applies to this solicitation. Technical acceptability to meet the Government s requirement per the Statement of Work (SOW), Past-performance and price. Technical and past performance; when combined, are less important than price. Basis for Award: Award decision will be based on the lowest evaluated price from the responsible offeror whose quote was responsive and found to be satisfactory. The Government intends to make Award on an all or none basis to the offeror presenting the Best Value. All offerors shall have an active System for Award Management (SAM) Registration and be registered in the Center for Verification and Evaluation (CVE) to verify Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Businesses (SDVOSBs) and Veteran-Owned Small Businesses (VOSBs). SDVOSBs and VOSBs who want to participate in the VA s Veterans First Contracting Program must be verified by CVE in order to be eligible for VA contract set-asides. DUNS numbers shall NOT be in the Excluded Parties List System (EPLS), and are NOT listed on the List of Parties Excluded from Federal Procurement or otherwise ineligible to receive an award. Project Approach Ratings Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory Ratings Rating Description Satisfactory Offerors proposal reflects a full grasp of the requirement and clearly demonstrates the ability to meet the minimum requirements of the solicitation. Unsatisfactory Proposal does not clearly meet the minimum requirements of the solicitation. b) Past performance will be based on one or more of the following: (i) The contracting officer s knowledge of and previous experience with the supply or service being acquired; (ii) Customer surveys, and past performance questionnaire replies; (iii) The Government wide Past Performance Information Retrieval System (PPIRS) at www.ppirs.gov; or (iv) Any other reasonable basis. c) Price- Evaluated to determine that the proposed price is fair and reasonable. (i) Price Fair and Reasonable will be based in accordance with FAR Subpart 13.106-3(a). As part of Price Evaluation: the Government will evaluate its option to extend services (see FAR 52.217-8) by adding six (6) months to the offeror s total price. Offeror is required only to price the base, and four 1-year option periods. Offeror shall not submit a price for the potential six (6) month extension of services period. The Government may choose to exercise the Extension of Services at the end of the option period, utilizing the same rates as the last six months of the last option period. (ii) Options. The Government will evaluate offers for award purposes by adding the total price for all options to the total price for the base period of performance. The Government may determine that an offer is unacceptable if the option prices are significantly unbalanced (i.e. the base period pricing is significantly higher than the option period pricing or an option period pricing is significantly greater than the base period pricing). Evaluation of options shall not obligate the Government to exercise the options. (iii) 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. Addendum to 52.212-2 Evaluation Commercial Items Method of Award Cascade Order of Precedence Procedure - As follows: Prospective SDVOSB/VOSB offerors must be a verified SDVOSB/VOSB concern in the VA Center for Verification and Evaluation (CVE) Veteran Information Pages (VIP) pages at the date and time set for receipt of offers. Any award(s) resulting from this solicitation will be made using the following cascading order of precedence. Offers shall clearly record their business size and all business preference categories (i.e. SDVOSB, VOSB, HubZone, WOSB, Large Business, etc.) on the cover page of the offer. As a minimum, this cover page shall also include the following: Business name, Address, DUNS Number, Name, phone number, and email address for the Primary Point of Contact, Tax Identification Number, and your GSA contract number if applicable to this service. This cover page is a mandatory element of your offer as the offers will only be reviewed in accordance with the below criteria: In accordance with FAR Subpart 19.14 and PL 109-461, award under this solicitation will be made on a competitive basis first to an eligible Service Disabled Veteran Owned small business (SDVOSB) concern (FAR 52.219-1, Small Business Program Representations for small business size definition) who submits a responsive offer, provided that there is adequate competition among such firms. If there is inadequate competition for award to a SDVOSB concern, award will be made competitively to an eligible Veteran Owned Small Business (VOSB) concern. If there is inadequate competition for award to a VOSB concern, award will be made competitively to a certified HUBZone small business concern. If there is inadequate competition for award to a HUBZone concern, award will be made competitively to a Women-Owned small business concern. If there is inadequate competition for award to a Women-owned concern, award will be made competitively to a small business concern IAW FAR 19.5. If there is inadequate competition for award to a small business concern, award will be made on the basis of full and open competition considering all responsive offers submitted by responsible business concerns. Adequate competition shall be deemed to exist if At least two competitive offers are received from qualified, responsible business concerns at the tier under consideration; and Award will be made at fair market prices as determined in accordance with FAR 19.202-6. When there is inadequate competition at any tier, an otherwise competitive offer from a responsible business concern at that tier will be considered with the eligible offers for the next lower tier. For example, only one competitive offer is received from a SDVOSB business. That offer will be included with the offer(s) received from all VOSB businesses. If there is still inadequate competition, the offer from the SDVOSB business will then be included with SB offer(s) received; finally, if there is inadequate competition at the SB tier, the SDVOSB offer will be included with all responsive offers. Award will be made to the offeror whose offer conforming to the solicitation will be most advantageous to the Government, price and other factors considered.
