(b)(10) Submit past performance information to include recent and relevant contracts for the same or similar items and other references, including contract numbers, points of contact with telephone numbers and other relevant information. (g) Contract award. The Government intends to evaluate offers and award a contract without discussions with offerors. Therefore, the offerors initial offer should contain the offerors best terms from a price and technical standpoint. However, the Government reserves the right to conduct discussions if later determined by the Contracting Officer to be necessary. The Government may reject any or all offers if such action is in the public interest; accept other than the lowest offer; and waive informalities and minor irregularities in offers received. (k) SAM. Offerors must be registered in the SAM database to receive a contract award. If the Offeror does not become registered in the SAM database within 5 days after receiving notification from the Contracting Officer, the Contracting Officer will proceed to award to the next otherwise successful registered Offeror. Evaluation The Government intends to award a contract resulting from this solicitation to the responsible offeror whose offer conforming to the solicitation is the best value to the Government, price and other factors considered. The provision at FAR 52.212-2, Evaluation -- Commercial Items (Oct 2014) applies. The following factors shall be used to evaluate: PRICE and PAST PERFORMANCE. All evaluation factors when combined are of approximately equal importance. (a) PRICE: The Government will rank offers by "total evaluated price". Offerors total evaluated price is the sum of prices for the basic requirement and all options. The Government may determine that an offer is unacceptable if the option prices are significantly unbalanced. Evaluation of options shall not obligate the Government to exercise the option(s). Price will be examined for reasonableness, realism, and balance. Offerors shall use the Bid Schedule (Attachment 03) to submit their pricing details/breakout for their firm fixed-price proposal. (b) PAST PERFORMANCE: Submit past performance information to include recent and relevant contracts for the same or similar items and other references, including contract numbers, points of contact with telephone numbers and other relevant information. The Government intends to award to the Offeror with the lowest total evaluated price and no negative past performance. In determining an Offerors relevancy of past performance, the Government will consider aspects such as similarity of product/service/support, complexity, dollar value, duration, contract type, and degree of subcontract/teaming. Offerors shall include a statement specifying the extent of agreement with all terms, conditions, and provisions included in the solicitation. Offers that fail to furnish required representations or information, or reject the terms and conditions of the solicitation may be excluded from consideration. By submission of its offer, the Offeror accedes to all solicitation requirements, including terms and conditions, representations and certifications, and technical requirements. Offerors must clearly identify any exception to the solicitation in terms and conditions and provide complete accompanying rationale. In determining acceptable past performance AFRL/RIKO may independently obtain data from other Government and commercial sources in order to consider an Offerors history of compliance with delivery schedules, order support, and general customer satisfaction. Offerors are required to complete representations and certifications found in the provision at FAR 52.212-3, Offeror Representations and Certifications -- Commercial Items (Jan 2017); Alternate I (Oct 2014).
