(ix) FAR 52.212-2, Evaluation-Commercial Products and Commercial Services applies to this acquisition.

(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:

Award will be made to the lowest price responsible Offeror that is deemed Eligible for award. The Government will evaluate quotations based on the following criteria: 1) Award Eligibility; and, 2) Price.

1) Award Eligibility:

i) The Offeror must demonstrate that the they are an authorized distributor of the identified brand name and brand name or equal manufacturers. Acceptable demonstration is as follows: Prime level Offerors shall provide written documentation from the Original Equipment Manufacturer that their company or their subcontractor is authorized to distribute the required equipment. If the prime Offeror's subcontractor is the authorized distributor, then the prime-level Offeror shall include in the documentation a statement guaranteeing the Government will receive the same benefits when contracting with the prime as if the prime Offeror was the authorized distributor; AND

ii) Offeror provides an exact match of the part numbers listed in Attachment 001 of this combined synopsis/solicitation and provides. Offers of “equal” products must be in accordance with FAR 52.211-6 Brand Name or Equal, including but not limited to:

a. Meet the salient physical, functional, or performance characteristics specified in the solicitation;

b. Clearly identify the item by: brand name, if any; and make or model number;

c. Include descriptive literature such as illustrations, drawings, or a clear reference to previously furnished descriptive data or information available to the Contracting Officer; and

d. Clearly describe any modifications the Offeror plans to make in a product to make it conform to the solicitation requirements. Mark any descriptive material to clearly show the modifications.

If an Offeror does not provide the entire list of equipment, does not provide required documentation in accordance with FAR 52.211-6 for offers of “equal” products, or is not an authorized distributor, the Offeror will be deemed Ineligible for award. If the Offeror provides pricing for all the line items identified in the Attachment 001, is an authorized distributor, and provides substantiation required in accordance with FAR 52.211-6 for offers of “equal” products, the Offeror will be deemed Eligible for award.

2) Price:

An Offeror’s Total Evaluated Price will be determined by multiplying the proposed unit prices, by the required quantities identified in each Contract Line Item Number (CLIN). For competitive evaluation purposes, the evaluated price for this procurement will be based on a sum of all CLINs. Offerors must provide pricing for all CLINs. All CLINs will be included in the total evaluated price. Each Offeror’s price proposal shall be evaluated to determine if it is complete.

In accordance with FAR 15.305(a)(1), competition establishes price reasonableness. Therefore, when contracting on a firm-fixed-price basis, comparison of the proposed prices will usually satisfy the requirements to perform a price analysis, and a cost analysis need not be performed. Since this will be conducted using competitive procedures, adequate price competition is expected as the basis for determining the fair and reasonableness of the selected Offeror’s price.

In the event that there is only one satisfactory offer, the Government reserves the right to request additional cost or pricing data as necessary from both the Offeror and subcontractors, and may conduct negotiations with the Offeror, pursuant to FAR Part 15.403-4 in order to ensure a reasonable and realistic price.

A Competitive Fair and Reasonable Price Determination will be reviewed and approved by the Procuring Contracting Officer. The Competitive Fair and Reasonable Price Determination will establish price reasonableness and determine responsibility (FAR 9.103).
