Lowest Price

  • Solicitation serves notice that the award will made based on lowest price.
  • Request for Quotes – written or oral
  • Invitation for Bid (IFB)
  • The business providing the lowest price must still be responsive and responsible in order to be awarded a contract.
slide6

The Concept of “Best Value” in Negotiated Procurement

  • The entire effort involved in the acquisition process is directed toward the goal of obtaining “best value”.
  • “Best value” means the expected outcome of an acquisition that, in the Government’s estimation, provides the greatest overall benefit in response to the requirement.
slide7

Best Value: Two Approaches

  • Tradeoff
    • Allows tradeoffs among cost or price and non-cost factors and allows the Government to accept other than the lowest priced proposal.
  • Lowest Price/Technically Acceptable
    • Proposals are evaluated to determine whether they are technically acceptable and award is made to the lowest priced technically acceptable offer.

Uniform Contract Format (UCF)

  • Though the UCF is not required for all solicitations, (for example RFQ’s and construction) there is basic information that must be provided regardless of the method of solicitation.

slide21

What Should I Focus On?

  • Read all documents and forms included in the solicitation package (including attachments)
  • If you do not understand a portion of the application, contact the Point of Contact
  • Reading sections C through K will help you have a firm understanding of the specific needs and requests required by the government agency
  • Pay special attention to Sections L and M of the application, as these outline the evaluation process of the solicitation
slide22

RFP Section L

  • Information required to be submitted by offerors
    • Data needed to evaluate offeror’s proposal
  • Format information
    • Margins, font size, headers, footers, etc.
    • Binding
    • General layout
  • RFP Section M
  • Evaluation Criteria
    • Most important section to the source selection
    • Basis for how offeror’s proposal will be evaluated through use of factors and subfactors
    • Relationship between acquisition documents
      • Requirements set forth in Statement of Objectives, Statement of Work, Performance Work Statement, etc.
slide25

Evaluation Factors and Significant Subfactors

  • Factors will be listed in order of relative importance
  • Past Performance will bean evaluation factor
  • It must be stated whether all factors other than price when combined are –
    • significantly more important than price
    • approximately equal to price, or
    • significantly less important to price
  • Agency rating method need not be disclosed in the solicitation
slide28

OneBIG Don’t

  • Do not simply “mimic” the language in the RFP
  • Express an understanding of the RFP by specifying HOW you will perform the work
  • Example: The RFP’s Statement of Work is, “…the planned treatment is to mechanically treat vegetation within the boundaries of the identified units by chopping, mulching, and/or shredding the existing vegetation.”
  • Don’t just repeat this statement in your proposal. Tell them how you will address this need.
