All Firms responding to this announcement are cautioned to review FAR Part 9.5 - Organizational and Consultant Conflicts of Interest; and FAR 36.209 - Construction contracts with architect-engineer firms.

EVALUATION CRITERIA: The Government's selection of the best value contractor is based upon an evaluation of the selection criteria to determine the most highly qualified firm(s).
