The closing date and time for quote submission is: 6 June 2014, 11:00 AM EST. Offers received after this date and time may be considered non-responsive and will not be given further consideration. Please provide all submissions to Government Point of contact: Ms. Teri Bischof,

All contractors must comply with the requirement listed above for this request. Failure to comply may result in disqualification. This will be a Firm Fixed Price (FFP) contract.

This acquisition will utilize Lowest Price Technically Acceptable (LPTA) procedures in accordance with FAR 15.101-2. Technical tradeoff will not be made and no additional credit will be given for exceeding acceptability. Award will be made to the acceptable offeror with the lowest evaluated price, which is deemed responsible in accordance with the Federal Acquisition Regulation and whose quote conforms to the solicitation requirements. The solicitation requirements include all stated terms, conditions, representation and certifications, and other information required by this solicitation. The Government reserves the right to award without discussions. Therefore, each initial offer should contain the offeror's best terms from a price and technical standpoint. However, the Government reserves the right to conduct discussions if determined necessary by the Contracting Officer.

The Government may reject any quote that is evaluated to be unrealistic in terms of requirements, contract terms and conditions, or an unrealistically high or low price when compared to Government estimates, such that the quote is deemed to reflect an inherent lack of competence or failure to comprehend the complexity and risk of the program.

Technical acceptability will be evaluated on all quotes. Only those quotes determined to be technically acceptable, either initially or as a result of discussions, will be considered for award. Then, price will be evaluated and the quotes will be listed from lowest to highest price based on the total evaluated price and technical acceptability. Award will be made to the lowest evaluated priced quote meeting the acceptability standards for the non-priced factors.


The contractor shall address the following three factors:

* 1. Factor 1 - Technical Capability - Offeror shall clearly demonstrate its approach to technical ability to meet the requirements of CLIN/Line Items based on meeting the requirements of the Request for Quote, quantity, quality and timeliness of delivery.

* 2. Factor 2 - Price - The offeror shall complete CLIN pricing on page one (1) of this solicitation. In addition to the completed CLIN pricing on page one (1), the offeror shall provide sufficient price information to allow the contracting officer to determine the completeness and reasonableness of the offerors prices.

DISCUSSIONS: If during the evaluation period it is determined to be in the best interest of the Government to hold discussions, Offeror responses to clarifications/discussion notices will be considered in making the source selection decision.

AWARD DECISION: The award decisions will be made as follows:

* (1) Step One - Determine Technical Acceptability. The technical evaluation, Factor 1, stated above, will assess the offerors capability to satisfy the Government's requirement. The Government will evaluate all technical capability quotes received by the required date/time. The Technical Capability factor will receive a rating of acceptable and unacceptable.

If any factor is rated "unacceptable", the entire quote is rendered technically unacceptable, and the quote will be removed from the competitive range. Only quotes deemed technically acceptable (either initially or as the result of discussions) will be considered for award. The ratings are defined in the following table.

! Rating ! Description !

! Acceptable ! Quote clearly meets the minimum requirements of the solicitation. Only those quotes determined acceptable, either initially or as a result of discussion will be considered for award. Once deemed acceptable, all technical quotes are considered to be equal. !

! Unacceptable ! Quote does not clearly meet the minimum requirements of the solicitation. Quotes with an unacceptable rating will not be considered for award. !


* (2) Step Two - Evaluate Price. The offeror's Price quote will be evaluated, for award purposes, based upon the total price proposed as annotated under Factor 2 - Price.

* (3) Step Three - Award Decision. Award will be made the lowest priced, technically acceptable offeror, subject to a positive responsibility determination in accordance with FAR Part 9 and conformance of the offeror's quote to the terms and conditions of the solicitation.
