Evaluation Factors of Award in section, 52.212-2 Evaluation - Commercial Items of this solicitation ADDENDA TO 52.212-2 BASIS FOR CONTRACT AWARD: This is a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) Set-Aside competitive selection in which competing offeror's past and present performance history will be evaluated on a basis of past performance and price; with past performance being approximately equal to price. By submission of its offer in accordance with the instructions provided in clause FAR 52.212-1, Instructions to Offerors, the offeror accedes to the term of this model contract and all such offers shall be treated equally except for their prices and past performance records. The evaluation process shall proceed as follows: A. Initially, offers shall be ranked according to price. An offeror's proposed prices will be determined by multiplying the quantities identified in the Pricing Schedule by the proposed unit price for each Contract Line Item Number or Subcontract Line Item Number to confirm the extended amount for each. B. Performance confidence assessments will be made using the complete questionnaires, submitted directly to the contracting officer on all offerors and data independently obtained from the government and commercial sources. Relevant performance includes performance efforts involving limited to design/ layout and installation of furniture that are similar or greater in scope, magnitude and complexity than the effort described in the solicitation. Performance regarding predecessor companies, key personnel who have relevant experience, or subcontractors that will perform major or critical aspects of the requirement will be considered as highly as past performance information for the principal offeror. The government reserves the right to seek information on higher priced offerors if none if the lower priced offerors receive a "Substantial Confidence" performance assessment rating. Offerors with no relevant past or present performance history shall receive the rating "Unknown Confidence", meaning the rating is treated neither favorably nor unfavorably. The purpose of the past performance evaluation is to allow the government to assess the offeror's ability to perform the effort described in the solicitation, based on the offeror's demonstrated present and past performance. The assessment process will result in an overall performance confidence assessment rating as defined in AFFARS Mandatory Procedures 5315.3,Table 3. See Table below for rating and description ---- TABLE 3- PERFORMANCE CONFIDENCE ASSESSMENTS Rating Description Substantial Confidence Based on the offeror's performance record, the government has a high expectation that the offeror will successfully perform the required effort.. Satisfactory Confidence Based on the offeror's performance record, the government has an expectation that the offeror will successfully perform the required effort. Limited Confidence Based on the offeror's performance record, the government has a low expectation that the offeror will successfully perform the required effort No Confidence Based on the offeror's performance record, the government has no expectation that the offeror will be able to successfully perform the required effort. Unknown Confidence No performance record is identifiable or the offeror's performance record is so limited that no confidence assessment rating can be reasonably assigned.. C. In evaluating past performance, the Government reserves the right to give greater consideration to information on those contracts deemed most relevant to the effort described in this solicitation. D. If the lowest priced evaluated offer is judged to have a "Substantial Confidence" performance rating, that offer represents the best value for the Government and the evaluation process stops at this point. Award shall be made to that offeror without further consideration of any other offers. E. If the lowest price offeror is not judged to have a "Substantial Confidence" performance assessment, the next lowest priced offeror will be evaluated and the process will continue (in order by price) until an offeror is judged to have a "Substantial Confidence" performance assessment or until all offerors are evaluated. F. Offerors are cautioned to submit sufficient information and in the format specified in the section entitled "Proposal Preparation Instructions". Offeror's may be asked to clarify certain aspects of their proposal (for example, the relevance of past performance information) or respond to adverse past performance information to which the offeror has not previously had an opportunity to respond. Adverse performance is defined as performance information that supports a less than satisfactory rating on any evaluation element or any unfavorable comments received from sources without a formal rating system. Communication conducted to resolve minor or clerical errors will not constitute discussions and the contracting officer reserves the right to award a contract without the opportunity for proposal revision. G. The Government intends to award a contract without discussions with respective offers. The Government, however, reserves the right to conduct discussions if deemed in its best interest. If discussions are held, the Offerors will be required to respond to evaluation notices within a short time frame (24 hours or less).
