Awards will be made on the basis of technical capability and management, technical approach to the sample task order, past performance, and price/cost. The price/cost proposal, which consists of pricing for the sample task order and pricing for the professional categories and supplemental direct and indirect rates to establish maximum ceiling rates will be used to conduct a price evaluation for the award of the IDIQ contract. The Government intends to make awards(s) without discussions; however, the Government reserves the right to hold discussions if necessary in accordance with FAR 15.306. If a competitive range is established, the Government may limit the number of proposals in the competitive range for purposes of efficiency. The Government reserves the right to make staggered awards. Later awarded contracts will have an initial period of performance that will be less than the full three year base period in duration and will end on the same date as all other contractors which receive a basic IDIQ award. The option period will be the same for all awardees, if exercised. If determined to be in the Governments interest to hold discussions, discussions may be held with Offerors remaining in the competitive range after initial awards have been made to some Offerors. After the Government individually evaluates and rates each proposal, the Source Selection Authority (SSA) will determine which proposal represents the best value. The Government reserves the right to accept other than the lowest priced offer, or to reject all offers. The Government will not award a contract to an Offeror whose proposal contains a deficiency, as defined in FAR 15.001. If there is/are lower priced, conforming offer(s), the source selection official must determine that the added value of a more expensive proposal would justify award to that Offeror. For the purpose of the best value tradeoff for the IDIQ awards, the prices for the sample task order will be used. NOTE. ALL OFFERORS SHOULD DIRECT THEIR ATTENTION TO THE LIMITATIONS ON SUBCONTRACTING CLAUSE FOUND IN FAR 52.219-14. All evaluation factors other than price/cost, when combined, are significantly more important than price/cost. The factors are as follows: Factor 1: Technical Capability and Management Factor 2: Technical Approach to the Sample Task Order Factor 3: Past Performance Factor 4: Offer, Price and Cost Factors 1 and 2 when combined are significantly more important than Factor 3. All factors will be considered in the trade-off to determine Best Value. To receive consideration for award, a rating of no less than "Acceptable" must be achieved for Factors 1 and 2. A rating of no less than "Satisfactory Confidence" or "Unknown Confidence" must be achieved for Factor 3. The proposed prices in Factor 4 will be evaluated as follows: FFP elements will be evaluated for fairness and reasonableness. CPFF elements will be evaluated for fairness, reasonableness and realism.
