Evaluation Factors & Proposals
In general, all evaluation technical factors, other than price when combined, are considered significantly more important than price. As differences in technical ratings and relative advantages and disadvantages become less distinct, the difference in price between proposals are of increased importance in determining the most advantageous proposals.
Proposals submitted by offerors should be in compliance with the format specified in the RFP, and any attempt to not follow the requirements will result in the removal or returning of the proposal to the contractor by the Contracting Officer. To be eligible to receive an award, contractors must be registered in the System for Award Management (SAM) database; otherwise, the Contracting Officer will proceed to award to the next successful registered contractor.
Furthermore, all the contractors that are awarded an IDIQ contract shall attend a Post-Award Conference convened by the contracting activity in accordance with Federal Acquisition Regulation.
