Past performance will be evaluated on a pass/fail basis, with only contractors who receive a passing score being considered for award. Price will be evaluated based on the proposed prices and will not be scored. The Alliant 3 Unrestricted GWAC draft RFP also provides a detailed scoring table that outlines how the evaluation factors will be scored.
