NOTICE TO OFFERORS:  Instructions for submitting quotations under this request for quote must be followed.  Failure to provide all information to aid in the evaluation may be considered non-responsive.  Offers that are non-responsive may be excluded from further evaluation and rejected without further notification to the offeror.

(IX)  FAR 52.212-2, EVALUATION – COMMERCIAL ITEMS (OCT 2014), applies to this acquisition.  Offers will be evaluated based on price and the factors set forth in paragraph (a) the Government will award a contract resulting from this solicitation to the responsible offeror whose offer conforming to the solicitation will be most advantageous to the Government, price and other factors considered. The following factors shall be used to evaluate offers.  This is an “all or none” request:

Factor 1--TECHNICAL APPROACH. The quotation will be evaluated on how the offeror intends to organize, staff and manage the contract and the means that will be used to accomplish the contract requirements. The degree to which the quotation demonstrates an understanding of the requirements will be evaluated, as well as the offeror's planned management of consultants and subcontractors, if applicable.

Factor 2 -EXPERIENCE. The offeror's background, experience, and qualifications will be assessed to determine the likelihood that that offeror can successfully perform the contract requirements and the degree of the risk of non-performance. Specifically, professional experience running offshore vessels with a licensed captain with a minimum of three years experience and a deckhand capable of assisting deployment and retrieval of camera arrays.

Factor 3 - COST/PRICE. The proposed prices/costs will be evaluated.  The cost evaluation will determine whether the proposed costs are realistic, complete, and reasonable in relation to the solicitation requirements. Proposed costs must be entirely compatible with the technical approach.
