Addendum to 52.212 2 Evaluation of Commercial Items a. BASIS FOR CONTRACT AWARD: This acquisition will utilize the Lowest Priced Technically Acceptable (LPTA) procedure to make a best value award. A decision on the technical acceptability of each offeror s quotations will be made. For those offerors which are determined to be technically acceptable, award will be made to that vendor with the lowest overall price. While the Government will strive for maximum objectivity, the technical go/no go process, by its nature, is subjective; therefore, professional judgment is implicit throughout the evaluation process. The Government intends to make an award based on the initial quotations. If further questions are required, the contracting officer may contact the offeror or offerors. Award will be made to the responsible offeror whose quotation conforms to all solicitation requirements, such as terms and conditions, representations and certifications, technical requirements, and also provides the best value to the Government based on the results of the evaluation described in paragraph (b) below. (b) The LPTA evaluation process will be accomplished as follows: (1) Technical Acceptability. Each offeror s technical quotations will be evaluated to determine if the offeror provides a sound, compliant approach that meets the requirements of Part 5 of the Performance Work Statement and demonstrates a thorough knowledge and understanding of those requirements. An evaluation rating of Technically Acceptable / Non-Acceptable will be assigned upon completion of the technical quotations evaluation. If an Offeror receives a technical rating of Non-Acceptable they will not be considered for award.
