The specific requirements will be described in a Performanc e Work Statement (PWS) released with the solicitation. A cost comparison to determine the feasibility and economy of converting the above services performed by the Government to contractor performance is simultaneously being done. A contract will not be awarded if Government performance is determined to be more advantageous. Government personnel adversely affected by conversion of Government performed services to contract have Right of First Refusal for jobs for which they are qualified. It is anticipated that a pre-proposal conference and site-visit will be conducted prior to solicitation closing; time and date will be provided in the solicitation. The solicitation will be issued on a Firm Fixed Price (FFP) basis, and will include Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (ID/IQ) line items to accommodate Government-ordered after hours work. Any resultant contract is anticipated to be for a base period and up to four option periods (period of performance not to exceed five total years). This procurement will be conducted as a 100% set aside for Small Business. Due to the type of work conducted at NSWCDD CSS, it is required that contractor personnel be United States citizens. Currently, the Government in-house workforce is performing the Budget and Financial Program Support services. The Navy intends to perform a cost comparison, pursuant to OMB Circular No. A-76, in order to determine the most cost effective service provider. Best Value Source Selection procedures will be utilized for this procurement. The proposals received in response to the solicitation will be fully evaluated by the Source Selection Team on the stated technical evaluation factors. Proposals will be evaluated on the following factors: 1) Relevant Past Performance; 2) Management Approach and Organization; 3) Technical Approach, Experience and Qualifications, 4) Phase in Plan, and 5) Price. The contract will be awarded to the best value contractor if the contractors proposal is more advantageous than the Governments proposal, taking into consideration the minimum cost differential requirements. To be considered more advantageous, contractor’s proposal must be at least 10 percent lower than the Government’s costs in the performance period. The purpose of the minimum cost differential is to avoid the disruption of converting performance of the commercial activity based on a minimal cost savings. If Government performance is determined to be more advantageous, this solicitation will be cancelled and no contract will be awarded. If a contractor is selected as the service provider, an award will be made in accordance with OMB Circular A-76 and all other ap plicable Navy and Government acquisition regulations.
