Quoters should provide description of items quoted and what quantity can be delivered by July 31, 2005. The primary considerations for award of a purchase order will be whether the items are suitable for the intended purpose and whether they can be delivered on time. Quoters that cannot meet the delivery date for the complete quantities or exact items may quote the best terms they can provide. The quoter offering acceptable items that most closely match the Government?s needs and required delivery date will receive most favorable consideration. The Government intends to make one award but may make multiple awards if it is in the Government?s best interest. Award will be made to the lowest priced technically acceptable quoter. Quotation must include names and points of contacts of other Government or commercial customers for whom the quoter has performed this or similar work for in the past three (3) years. Lowest price will be evaluated by the lowest overall price of the aggregate sum of the item prices to include shipping to Miami, FL, taking into account the cost of multiple awards, if made.
