GSA also executes reimbursable work authorizations on behalf of other agencies for tenant improvement projects. Although construction activities take place throughout the year, a large quantity of these projects typically falls between the months of April and September. The expected average dollar value of projects executed under the scope is about $25,000 and the median value is about $12,500. The majority of task orders are expected to be between $2,000 and $25,000; however, occasionally some task orders may approach or exceed the simplified acquisition threshold of $250,000.

Proposal Information: Interested offerors should carefully read the attached documents and solicitation document to for a complete description of proposal information and requirements. This procurement uses a tradeoff process to determine the offer that represents the best value to the Government. Non-Price Factors, when combined, are significantly more important than Total Evaluated Price.

The proposal will consist of two volumes:

1.       Volume I:  Price Proposal – includes Standard Form 1442 and Supplement to Standard Form 1442.

2.       Volume II: Technical Proposal – includes one go-no-go factor, three non-price factors, and offeror representations and certifications.

The coefficients are connected to the RSMeans Data Book.

The unit prices listed in the RS Means Building Construction Cost Data are bare costs. Bare cost equals a factor of 1.000, the same as “NET”, all other bid factors “MINUS” or “PLUS” will be added or subtracted from the bare cost factor. A “MINUS” 4% would be written as 0.96, a “PLUS” 4% would be written as 1.040 and “NET” would be written as 1.000. The offered bid factors for the base and each option period will be applied to all work items for which a unit price is stated in the price schedule that are ordered via task orders in the respective base and option periods.

Therefore, offerors should submit proposals that are acceptable without additional explanation or information as the Government may evaluate and make a final decision for award solely on the basis of the initial proposal submitted by offerors.
