The government will award a Firm Fixed Price contract resulting from this solicitation to a responsible vendor whose quote conforms to this solicitation and is considered most advantageous to the Government. Which quote is most advantageous to the Government will be determined based on the following evaluation factors: price, technical, and past performance. The technical factor will be evaluated in terms of how well the offeror's quote addresses the requirements as set forth in the Performance Work Statement (PWS). Past performance will be evaluated based on a minimum of three references provided by the contractor, which will be checked by the VT-PFO-PC. References must be for provision of similar services and within the last three years.
All quotes will be evaluated to determine whether the offeror's methods and approach have adequately and completely considered, defined, and satisfied the requirements specified in the PWS. Quotes also will be evaluated to determine the extent to which the proposed approach is workable and the end results achievable.

Quotes should use the following structure for pricing:
0001 General Session Conference Room - All day Saturday, Sunday until noon (capable of seating up to 160 people, at rectangular tables) 1 Each
0002 Breakout Session Rooms (capable of seating up to 65 people each, at rectangular tables) 3 Each
0003 Exhibit area (capable of accommodating 20 8-foot tables with two chairs per table) 1 Each
0004 Child Care Space (capable of accommodating up to 20 children, furnished as described in PWS) 1 Each
0005 Lodging Rooms for Friday night (minimum of 2 full or queen-sized beds) 80 Each
0006 Lodging Rooms for Saturday night(minimum of 2 full or queen-sized beds)
80 Each
0007 Morning Meal for Saturday 160 Each
0008 Mid-Day Meal for Saturday 160 Each
0009 Evening Meal for Saturday 160 Each
0010 Morning Meal for Sunday 160 Each
0011 Manpower Reporting in Contractor Manpower Reporting Application at
1 Job

Quotes must contain the following clearly labeled sections: (1) Technical Information (2) Past Performance References, (3) Price, and (4) Offer/Award Documents and Certifications and Representations. Content responsive to each section should be confined to the relevant section, not duplicated in multiple sections. Only sufficient information to permit a complete and accurate evaluation of the proposal should be included.
Because award will be made based on best overall value to the government, not on price alone, it is important that quotes describe how the contractor proposes to meet the requirements of the PWS, not just a price without a description of the offeror's facilities or the programming offered.
All responsible sources may submit an offer which, if received in a timely manner, will be considered.
The Government intends to evaluate offers and award a contract without discussions. Therefore the offeror's initial quote should contain the offeror's best terms from a price and technical standpoint. However, the Government reserves the right to seek clarification or to conduct discussions if later determined by the Contracting Officer to be necessary. The government may reject any or all offers if such action is in the public interest; accept other than the lowest offer; and waive informalities and minor irregularities in offers received.

A written notice of award or acceptance of an offer, mailed or otherwise furnished to the successful offeror within the time for acceptance specified in the offer, shall result in a binding contract without further action by either party. Before the offer's specified expiration time, the Government may accept an offer (or part of an offer), whether or not there are negotiations after its receipt, unless a written notice of withdrawal is received before award.

Funds are not presently available for this acquisition. No contract award will be made until appropriated funds are made available. The solicitation will be amended upon receipt of funds.
