Offerors shall break down their total price to reflect labor categories, labor rates, number of hours, materials and any other costs that make up the bottom line price. EVALUATION FACTORS FAR 52.212-2 Evaluation-Commercial Items (Oct 2014) The Government will evaluate proposals for technical acceptability on an Acceptable/Unacceptable basis using the process identified under the section entitled Best Value LPTA Award. All technical criteria must be rated "Acceptable" to be considered Technically Acceptable. Only those proposals determined to be technically acceptable, either initially or as a result of discussions, will be considered for award. The failure of a proposal to meet any or all of the technical criteria will result in a technically unacceptable rating and preclude award in the absence of discussions. Each technical factor will receive one of the ratings listed below: • Acceptable: The proposal clearly meets the minimum requirements of the solicitation. • Unacceptable: The proposal does not clearly meet the minimum requirements of the solicitation. The following table provides the minimum requirements for an offer to be determined acceptable under this factor: Whether the proposal demonstrates logical and feasible methods for meeting the requirements described in Statement of Work by providing conference space and audio/visual support and meeting the performance objectives outlined within the solicitation; The contractual will enough space to seat the required participants and have adequate audio and visual equipment to conduct a training program. TECHNICAL APPROACH • The government will evaluate the following regarding the proposed Technical Approach: o Whether the proposal demonstrates logical and feasible methods for meeting the requirements described in Statement of Work by providing conference space and audio/visual support and meeting the performance objectives outlined within the solicitation; The following table provides the minimum requirements for an offer to be determined acceptable under this factor: Evaluation Criteria under Technical Approach Minimum Requirement to be Determined Acceptable Whether the proposal demonstrates logical and feasible methods for meeting the requirements described in Statement of Work by providing conference space and audio/visual support and meeting the performance objectives outlined within the solicitation; The contractual will enough space to seat the required participants and have adequate audio and visual equipment to conduct a training program PRICE Price will be evaluated separately from Technical and other non-cost/price factors, and will be evaluated as follows: Reasonableness. The reasonableness of the total price proposed will be evaluated as follows: • On the basis of adequate price competition, by comparing the proposed prices among offers; and/or; • Comparing proposed prices to the Independent Government Cost Estimate to ensure that prices are reasonable for the results to be achieved; and/or • Comparison of proposed prices to valid historical prices paid, whether by the Government or other than the Government, for the same or similar items, adjusted for material differences and differing terms and conditions, quantities and market and economic factors; and/or • Use of parametric estimating methods/application of rough yardsticks (such as dollars per pound or per horsepower, or other units) to highlight significant inconsistencies that warrant additional pricing inquiry; and/or • Comparison with competitive published price lists, published market prices of commodities, similar indexes, and discount or rebate arrangements; and/or • Comparison of proposed prices with prices obtained through market research for the same or similar items; and/or • Analysis of data other than certified cost or pricing data provided by the offeror at the request of the Contracting Officer. Unless it is determined not to be in the Governments best interest in accordance with FAR 17.206(b); offers will be evaluated for award purposes by adding the total price for all options to the total price for the basic requirement Unbalanced Pricing - Offerors are cautioned against submitting an offer that contains unbalanced pricing. Unbalanced pricing may increase performance risk and could result in payment of unreasonably high prices. Unbalanced pricing exists when, despite an acceptable total evaluated price, the price of one or more contract line items is significantly over or understated as indicated by the application of price analysis techniques. The Government will analyze offers to determine whether they are unbalanced with respect to separately priced line items. Offers that are determined to be unbalanced may be rejected if the contracting officer determines that the lack of balance poses an unacceptable risk to the Government. BEST VALUE LPTA EVALUATION PROCESS AND AWARD The Government intends to make an award to the Lowest Price Technically Acceptable responsible offeror who represents the best value to the Government. Past Performance will be reviewed as part of the determination of responsibility but will not be an evaluation factor. Award will be made to the acceptable Offeror with the lowest evaluated price, who is deemed responsible in accordance with FAR Part 9.104 and whose proposal conforms to the solicitation requirements. The solicitation requirements include all stated terms, conditions, representations, certifications, and all other information required by the Government. Technical tradeoffs will not be made and no additional credit will be given for exceeding acceptability. It is the Governments intent to evaluate proposals and award a contract without discussions with offerors. Therefore, the offerors initial proposal should be their best effort and contain the offerors best terms from a price standpoint. If award is made without discussions, proposal revisions will not be permitted. However, the Government reserves the right to conduct discussions if the Contracting Officer (CO) later determines them to be necessary. The Government will evaluate proposals in accordance with the following evaluation process to determine the Lowest Price Technically Acceptable offeror who represents best value to the Government: 1) All offers will be ranked based upon an assessment of total overall evaluated prices; 2) A full evaluation of the Technical Acceptability of the lowest priced proposal will be conducted; 3) A price reasonableness determination will be conducted of the lowest priced technically acceptable proposal. Only proposals rated technically acceptable for all factors are eligible to receive an award. If the lowest priced technically acceptable proposal is determined to be reasonably priced and the offeror is determined to be responsible in accordance with FAR Part 9.104, evaluation will end and the Government will make award to that offeror as the LPTA proposal that represents the best value to the government. However, if the lowest priced offer is determined not to be technically acceptable or a price reasonableness determination cannot be made due to unbalanced pricing or for other reasons, the Government will proceed to evaluate the Technical Acceptability and then price reasonableness of the next lowest priced proposal and so on, until the Government identifies the lowest priced technically acceptable responsible offeror. If, at any time, the CO determines negotiations are required, the Government will evaluate all proposals for technical acceptability and price reasonableness before entering into discussions with offerors. The Government reserves the right, based upon the results from the technical evaluation and price evaluations to establish a competitive range. Should a competitive range be established, the Government will enter into discussions with only those offerors within the competitive range. Upon conclusion of discussions and final proposal revisions, the Government will assess the offers within the competitive range in accordance with the initial evaluation process identified above to determine the lowest priced, technically acceptable, responsible contract awardee. 52.212-3 OFFEROR REPRESENTATIONS AND CERTIFICATIONS-COMMERCIAL ITEMS.
