The Government will award a contract resulting from this solicitation to the responsible firm(s) with the lowest priced technically acceptable (LPTA) quote based on the lowest evaluated price of proposals meeting or exceeding the acceptability standards for noncost factors: technical capability and past performance. In order to allow the Government to determine technical acceptability, the offer shall submit the quantities of product samples of paperboard and trap to USDA, APHIS, PPQ, Building 1398, Otis ANGB, MA 02542 as indicated under Section F. and G. of the Statement of Work by the time specified below for receipt of offers. The following technical capability factors shall be used to evaluate offers and the offeror?s product must meet each category to be technically acceptable : (1) Traps are of the Gypsy moth design; (2) All traps are fabricated of hard sized, liquid packaging grade ? gallon milk carton paperboard stock .024 inch nominal thickness and polyethylene plastic-coated on both sides. Variance from nominal thickness is no greater than +.002. 3. (3) Adhesive is distributed as specified, completely covering area when traps are separated from each other with minimum manipulation of the traps. (4) Traps with adhesive will weigh 10 grams +/- 1 gram more than blank traps. (5) The size, cutting, perforating, and precreasing is in accordance with the schematic drawing provided. (6) The plastic coating is not damaged by the precreasing. (7) The trap outside surface is of green, orange or brown color. (8) The printing is waterproof, visible through the adhesive coating and unaffected by the adhesive coating. (9) The adhesive shall be applied in a manner within dotted lines of the designated area as shown in the attached diagram, and applied in a manner which prevents disposition outside of the designated adhesive area, so when folded the adhesive stays within the adhesive panels only. (10) Each trap is prepared for storage, folded in a manner that aligns the inside surfaces to prevent the adhesive coated surfaces from contacting non-adhesive surfaces. (11) The quality of the paperboard must meet industry standard milk carton grade or equivalent and must not leak exhibiting good liquid holdout capability, especially where edges and cuts are exposed. This is measured by a ?paperboard test? which tests the sample paperboard against an international paperboard standard. The test is as follows: Paperboard is cut into identical pieces and weighed to get the dry weight. The pieces are then put into a water bath of 22.2 centigrade for one hour. The pieces are removed and blotted dry and weighed to measure the wet weight. The dry weight is subtracted from the wet weight and the amount is divided by the wet weight and multiplied by 100 which give the percent of water absorbed. The industry standard range of weight for water absorption should be 1.5% ? 2%, and the percent of water absorbed in the sample paperboard should be equal to or less than the industry standard or not greater than 10% of the standard. Additional guidance on price and past performance is provided under provision 52.212-1.
