Evaluation Criteria

The evaluation criteria for the ITSSS-2 RFQ are based on the vendor’s ability to meet the requirements outlined in the solicitation. The FBI will evaluate vendors based on their technical approach, management approach, past performance, and price. The evaluation criteria are as follows:

The FBI will evaluate each proposal based on the above criteria and assign a confidence rating for each factor. The confidence rating will be used to determine which vendors will be recommended for further consideration in each phase of the competition. The FBI will conduct an Advisory Down Select based upon the Factor Confidence Ratings after each phase.

ITSSS-2 Enrollment & Awards

The self-scoring parts of the proposal are contained within the Technical Approach, Management Approach, and Past Performance sections. The Offeror is required to complete a Self-Scoring Sheet(s)/Workbook(s), Attachment(s) 8-10 for each functional category the Offeror is proposing for in workable Excel format. The completed Self-Scoring Sheet(s)/Workbook(s) should include documenting all the required fields listed in Attachment(s) 8-10, in the appropriate space designated on the Self-Scoring Sheet(s)/Workbook(s) for all the subfactors the Offeror would like to and is able to claim based on the requirements. All claims from the Offeror (including all partnership members) shall be contained within the same Self-Scoring Sheet(s)/Workbook(s) for each proposal. Only the information contained within the Self-Scoring Sheet(s)/Workbook(s) will be considered in the evaluation; therefore, the Offeror must include all the information it would like the DHS to consider.

Proposal Preparation

The Self-Scoring Sheet(s)/Workbook(s) are used to self-score the Offeror’s proposal against the evaluation criteria and subfactors listed in the RFP. The DHS will evaluate the Offeror’s proposal based on the evaluation criteria and subfactors listed in the RFP, as well as the self-scoring information provided by the Offeror. The self-scoring information will be used to validate the Offeror’s claims and to ensure that the Offeror has provided all the required information. The DHS will evaluate the self-scoring information to determine the Offeror’s score for each subfactor. The self-scoring information will be used as a starting point for the evaluation, but the DHS may adjust the Offeror’s score based on its own evaluation of the proposal. The DHS will evaluate proposals in accordance with the evaluation criteria and subfactors listed in the RFP, and will make award decisions based on the best value to the government.
