The Government will be seeking the most highly qualified firm to perform the required services, based on the demonstrated competence and qualifications, in accordance with the selection criteria and the provisions of Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 36.6, Architect-Engineer Services.

There is no limit on the total value for all TOs awarded except that no award or combination of awards shall cause the maximum value of the contract to be exceeded. Individual contract Task Orders will be issued with statements of work which describe the nature of work to be performed and requirements for the period of performance. The Government makes no representation as to the number of Task Orders or the actual amount of work to be ordered.
