The provision at 52.212-2, Evaluation -- Commercial Items (OCT 2014). The Government will award a contract resulting from this solicitation to the responsible Quoter whose Quote conforming to the solicitation will be most advantageous to the Government, price and other factors considered. The following factors shall be used to evaluate Quotes based on (LPTA) Lowest Priced Technically Acceptable. All quotes shall be subject to evaluation by Government personnel. The Government reserves the right to award without discussions based upon the initial evaluation of quotes. The Quote will be evaluated strictly in accordance with its written content. Quotes which merely restate the requirement or state that the requirement will be met, without providing supporting rationale, are not sufficient. Award will be made to Quoter whose price for items are lowest among all quotes that were deemed to be technically acceptable. Quoters who fail to meet the technical requirements of the solicitation will be rated unacceptable and thus, ineligible for award. Quotes will be evaluated based on the following factors listed as shown below: TECHNICAL EVALUATION APPROACH. The evaluation process will consider whether the quote demonstrates a clear understanding of the technical specifications or features involved in meeting the requirements and whether the Quoter s methods and approach have adequately and completely considered, defined and satisfied the requirements. Descriptive literature (and supplemental technical Quotes, if deemed necessary by Quoter to supplement the descriptive literature) will be evaluated to determine whether the quoted items meet all of the technical requirements (described above) and are thus considered technically acceptable. Any quoted product that does not meet all of the salient characteristics will be deemed technically unacceptable, and thus ineligible for award. PRICE EVALUATION APPROACH. Proposed pricing shall be provided on a unit price line basis. The Government will evaluate Quotes by adding the total of all line item prices. Evaluation Process: A Responsibility Determination will also be made in accordance with FAR 9.1 Responsible Prospective Contractors. The Government will make use of several data bases to aid in establishing a more complete picture of financial risk, responsibility and ability the databases include, but are not limited to: Experian, PPIRS, EPLS, CPARs, VetBiz (VIP) and the Small Business Administration (SBA).
