C. Teaming/Subcontracting Relationships. If an Offeror?s quote includes Teaming Partners or Subcontractors, then the Offeror is required to supply to the Government, along with its quote, a copy of the Teaming Arrangement or other document that identifies which partner/subcontractor shall be responsible for performing which requirements. The following factors shall be used to evaluate offers: 1. Past Performance and Experience. The Government will evaluate offeror?s past performance and experience to determine whether the vendor consistently delivers quality products and services in a timely manner. This factor will be evaluated on the basis of relevant past performance and experience for each offeror. Each quote is required to describe a minimum of three but not more than five prior relevant projects that the offeror has completed or are ongoing which are similar in scope and size to this requirement. Include points of contact and their phone numbers, and titles, size of procurement in dollar value and e-mail addresses if possible. Each reference shall include a contracting and technical point of contact. If the offeror?s quote includes teaming partners or subcontractors, then the information above required of the offeror on three to five relevant projects shall be similarly required of each teaming partner/subcontractor. If the offeror?s quote includes teaming partners or subcontractors, then the Government shall evaluate each partner?s/subcontractor?s individual past performance and experience and average the evaluations together for an overall Team past performance and experience evaluation. In evaluating a teaming partner?s or subcontractor?s past performance in a particular type of work, the Government may consider whether the teaming partner whose past performance or experience is touted will be performing that work, as evidenced by the terms of the quote and the Teaming Arrangement or other document provided per paragraph C above. The information presented in the vendor?s quote, together with information from any other sources available to the Government (i.e., Government-controlled Contractor performance databases, Inspector General reports, General Accounting Office reports, newspaper articles, references including contractual and end-user representatives, etc.) will provide the input for evaluation of this factor. The past performance and experience information should include the vendor?s record of providing high quality services in a timely manner, standards of good workmanship, adhering to contract schedules, administrative aspects of contract performance, overall quality of assigned personnel, availability, stability, reasonable and cooperative behavior, commitment to and business-like concern for the interests of the customer, quality of overall program management approach, record of awards or performance recognition earned, and overall client satisfaction. Past performance and experience that is relevant to this requirement will be of more value than non-relevant past performance and experience. Offerors will be evaluated on examples of past performance and experience wherein the experience of the vendor has contributed to the success of similar contracts/task orders. Offerors will be evaluated on examples of past performance and experience wherein the infrastructure and resources of the vendor contributed to the success of similar contracts/task orders. A lack of relevant past performance and experience data will be treated by the Government as a neutral evaluation. Past performance and experience will be evaluated to determine contractor?s suitability for meeting the objectives of the requirement. 2. The Offer?s price quote will be evaluated for reasonableness. This is a best value procurement. Past performance and experience is more important than price. In the event one contractor cannot provide the full coverage in all locations, multiple awards may be considered by the government. A written notice of award or acceptance of an offer, mailed or otherwise furnished to the successful offeror within the time for acceptance specified in the offer, shall result in a binding contract without further action by either party. Before the offer?s specified expiration time, the Government may accept an offer (or part of an offer), whether or not there are negotiations after its receipt, unless a written notice of withdrawal is received before award. 52.212-3 Offeror Representations and Certifications?Commercial Items As prescribed in 12.301(b)(2), insert the following provision: OFFEROR REPRESENTATIONS AND CERTIFICATIONS?COMMERCIAL ITEMS (MAR 2005) Requirement - Company must be registered on Central Contractor Registration (CCR) before an award could be made to them.
