BASIS FOR OFFER.  This is a competitive acquisition in accordance with FAR part 12 and part 13.  The Government will submit an offer in the form of a purchase order to the quoter that represents the best value to the Government.  Quotes will be evaluated as described below.  


(1) Solicitation Requirements.  All quotes submitted will be reviewed for completeness to determine if they contain all information requested in the addenda to FAR 52.212-1.  Quotes that are incomplete or missing information may be considered non-responsive and excluded from the evaluation.


(2) Price Evaluation.  The total evaluated price will be determined by adding together the extended amounts quoted for each line item.  The extended amounts will be confirmed by multiplying each line item quantity by the quoted unit price.  If there is a conflict between the quoted unit prices and extended amounts, the unit price shall be used to determine the total evaluated price.  Any discounts identified in the quote will be included in the evaluation of the total evaluated price.  No advantage will accrue to a vendor who submits a quote for an unreasonably low price.  The lowest price quote may not necessarily be selected.  Failure to propose for any line item may cause the vendor’s quote to be considered non-responsive and excluded from the evaluation.  The price evaluation will document the reasonableness of the quoted price.


(3) Technical Evaluation.  The Contracting Officer will review the descriptive literature to determine if quotes meet the salient characteristics identified in this solicitation.  The technical information will be evaluated on a pass/fail basis.
