The evaluation of offers received in response to the solicitation will use a tiered or cascading order of precedence.

(2) If an award or a sufficient number of awards cannot be made at the first tier, evaluation of offers will proceed at the next lower tier until an award or a sufficient number of awards can be made. The proposed contract action is for supplies or services for which the Government intends to solicit. Interested persons may submit offers, and all eligible offers received prior to 1:00 PM PDT February 20th 2018 will be considered by the Government. The NAICS code is 313310 and the size standard is 1000 Employees.
