Basis of Award: Award will be made to the responsible offeror whose offer conforming to the solicitation will be most advantageous to the Government. Offeror quotes will be evaluated in the following manner. The lowest–priced quote will be identified.

If the quoted price is found to be reasonable, the offeror who submitted this quote will be identified as the “successful offeror.” The Contracting Officer will then determine if the successful offeror is responsible using the general standards of responsibility and the special standards of responsibility applicable to this procurement. If contract award cannot be made to the successful offeror, the Contracting Officer will evaluate the next lowest-priced quote following the procedures described above. This process will continue until a contract award can be made or the Contracting Officer determines that no contract award can be made. The Contracting Officer may find all quotes not acceptable and cancel the solicitation if the lowest-priced quote exceeds the amount of funding available for the procurement. The Contracting Officer may likewise find a quote under evaluation, as well as all remaining quotes, not acceptable and cancel the solicitation if the quote currently under evaluation exceeds the amount of funding available for the procurement. The Government intends to evaluate quotes and award a contract without discussions with offerors. However, the Government reserves the right to conduct discussions at any time if determined by the Contracting Officer to be in the Government’s interest.
