52.212-2 EVALUATION--COMMERCIAL ITEMS (JAN 1999)

The source selection process to be used for this acquisition is the lowest price technically acceptable (LPTA) process. The Government will award a contract resulting from this solicitation to the responsible contractor 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: Technical, Past Performance, and Price.

Factor 1: Technical – The Offeror shall describe its approach to accomplishing the requirements of the Statement of Work. The Government shall evaluate the offeror’s ability to meet the requirement and conform to the specifications in the solicitation based on vendors technical competence and understanding of the requirements in the Statement of Work.

Technical Acceptable/Unacceptable Ratings
Acceptable Proposal clearly meets the minimum requirements of the solicitation.

Unacceptable Proposal does not clearly meet the minimum requirements of the solicitation.

Any offeror’s technical submission graded unacceptable will not receive further consideration for award.

Factor 2: Past Performance: Past performance submissions shall be evaluated for Relevancy. Relevant contracts are similar to the scope and magnitude of the PWS. All past performance submissions that are considered relevant shall be evaluated for quality. Offers shall provide the name, title and phone number of principal for no less than three prior or current contracts/agreements for similar scoped projects performed during the previous three years. Furnish the following information for each contract listed:
(i) Company/Division name
(ii) Product/Service
(iii) Contracting Agency/Customer
(iv) Contract Number
(v) Contract Dollar Value
(vi) Period of Performance
(vii) Verified, up-to-date name, address, fax and telephone number of the contracting officer
(viii) Comments regarding compliance with contract terms and conditions
(ix) Comments regarding any known performance deemed unacceptable to the customer

Past Performance Evaluation Ratings

Acceptable Based on the offeror’s performance record, the
Government has a reasonable expectation that
the offeror will successfully perform the
required effort, or the offeror’s performance
record is unknown.
Unacceptable Based on the offeror’s performance record, the
Government has no reasonable expectation that
the offeror will be able to successfully perform

Offerors are cautioned that in conducting the past performance assessment, the Government may use data provided in the offeror’s proposal and data obtained from other sources. Since the Government may not necessarily interview all of the sources provided by the offerors, it is incumbent upon the offerors to explain the relevance of the data provided. Offerors are reminded that while the Government may elect to consider data obtained from other sources, the burden of proving low performance risks rests with the offerors.

Note: In the case of an offeror without a record of relevant past performance or for whom
information on past performance is not available or so sparse that no meaningful past
performance rating can be reasonably assigned, the offeror may not be evaluated favorably or
unfavorably on past performance (see FAR 15.305 (a)(2)(iv)). Therefore, the offeror shall be
determined to have unknown past performance. In the context of acceptability/unacceptability,
“unknown” shall be considered “acceptable.”

Factor 3: Price: The Government will evaluate the offeror’s cost/price quote in order to assess the realism of the proposed cost/price, determine the probable cost to the Government, and to assist in determining the offeror’s understanding of the technical requirements.
(b) Options. The Government will evaluate offers for award purposes by adding the total price for all options to the total price for the basic requirement. The Government may determine that an offer is unacceptable if the option prices are significantly unbalanced. Evaluation of options shall not obligate the Government to exercise the option(s).
(c) 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.
AWARD WILL BE MADE TO THE OFFEROR WITH A TECHNICALLY ACCEPTABLE PROPOSAL WITH THE LOWEST EVALUATED PRICE.
FAR 52.217-9 Option to Extend the Term of the Contract Mar 2000
(a) The Government may extend the term of this contract by written notice to the Contractor within 1 day; provided that the Government gives the Contractor a preliminary written notice of its intent to extend at least 1 day before the contract expires. The preliminary notice does not commit the Government to an extension.
(b) If the Government exercises the options, the extended contract shall be considered to include this option clause.
(c) The total duration of this contract, including the exercise of any options under this clause, shall not exceed 1 year.
SOFARS 5652.201-9002 Authorized Changes Only By Contracting Officer Jan 2005

The Contractor shall not comply with any order, direction or request of Government personnel unless it is issued in writing and signed by the Contracting Officer, or is pursuant to specific authority otherwise included as part of this contract.

I. Background Information and Objectives

A. Background Information – The Office of Administration and Management (OASAM) Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO) requires 36 Fans for APC Symmetra Uninterrupted Power Source (UPS) backup units. OCIO’s-OSHA APC Symmetra PX Uninterrupted Power Source (UPS) Switch Module fans failed causing several racks of servers to go down. The maintenance repair of the APC (UPS) is necessary to support agency goals and objectives, including any tools, software and configuration necessary to maintain a mobile workforce while meeting all federal and DOL mandated security and configuration requirements. This statement of work is to provide OCIO-OSHA a redundant backup power source for high availability connectivity and disaster recovery, provide ease of connectivity for emergency response teams, as well as provide for growth to support future OSHA initiatives. Currently there are two UPS units that are operational, but one has a failed fan on the (UPS) Switch Module and if another fan fails the UPS will go down. There are a total of thirty-six fans that are either failed, failing or out of life which are necessary to support both APC UPS units. This emergency repair will give OCIO-OSHA backup UPS units redundancy and relieve the power stress on any single unit.

B. Technical Objectives – To obtain APC Certified Field Service Engineer to perform APC fan module refresh on 36 fans. These actions will keep the APC/UPS running at optimal levels. The electrical power requirements of the ECN/DCN are a critical component that allows us to have 99% up time as mandated and running at optimal performance levels.

The replacement fans must be factory authorized/OEM replacement parts that have the exact same voltage requirements as the APC Symmetra PX Uninterrupted Power Source (UPS) Switch Module fans and are wired in accordance with APC Standard Configurations. Unauthorized parts may present warranty issues should the unit experience problems after the installation. Installation of fans must be done by an APC certified Field Service Engineer. All warranties are null and void unless installation and startup are performed by authorized APC service centers.

The contractor shall remove and install a total of thirty-six(36) APC UPS fans located in a total of two(2) APC UPS units MODELS: SYSW80KF, SERIAL NUMBERS: PD0608133340 and PD1437140084.

The contractor shall complete the work as described in the SOW; any changes or deviations shall be provided to the Technical Contact Person: TBD in writing, and approved by the COR in writing. The contractor shall be responsible for any unapproved changes outside of this SOW.

The contractor shall verify all quantities before ordering materials. The contractor is responsible for accurate quantities of all materials ordered and for notifying the contracting officer technical representative of any site conditions that may prevent the successful completion of this project.
