Soliciation for SPE300-20-R-0030: The DLA Troop Support intends to solicit for a full line of produce support for Non-DoD (USDA School & Reservations) customers located in the State of Wyoming. This acquisition will be issued on an unrestricted basis. The total length of the contract will be four and half (4.5) years. It will contain three (18 month) tier periods. The resultant award will be for an indefinite delivery contract, with a guaranteed minimum of 10% of the first year of the contract. Its estimated maximum dollar amount is $7,000,000.00. The delivery points require indefinite quantities of Fresh Fruit and Vegetables throughout the term of the contract. A more detailed listing of the delivery sites can be found in the solicitation. All responsible sources may submit proposals that will be considered by DLA Troop Support. This solicitation will be issued under FAR 15.101-2 Low Price Technically Acceptable (LTPA). The Government will award a contract(s) resulting from this solicitation to the responsible offeror(s) whose offer(s) 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: 1. Technical Acceptability - A technically acceptable offer is an offer that takes no exceptions to the terms and conditions in the solicitation and complies fully with all submission requirements, including submissions relating to the two subfactors listed below. A proposal that takes exception to solicitation terms and conditions or that fails to comply with all submission requirements may be deemed technically unacceptable and, thus, may be found ineligible, and removed from further consideration, for the award. By submitting a proposal with no exceptions, an offeror is confirming it possesses the necessary facilities,equipment, technical skills and capacity to successfully provide all items required by this solicitation. The following sub-factors will be evaluated and must be found acceptable for a proposal to be eligible for award: A. Perishable Agricultural Commodities Act (PACA) License - The offeror shall possess and submit proof of a valid current PACA license. B. USDA Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) and Good Handling Practices (GHP) Audit - The offeror shall submit a valid GAP/GHP audit report / certificate, covering various fresh fruits and vegetables, for each place of performance identified in the offerors proposal. The audit report(s) must demonstrate that a passing score(s) was/were received. 2. Pricing - Pricing is required for all items found in the Schedule of Items (for each Group, if applicable) and for all tiers. Failure to offer pricing for all items and for all tiers may result in a proposal being removed from consideration for award as technically unacceptable. The Government will perform an aggregate price analysis on all items found in the Schedule of Items (for each Group, if applicable). To determine an offerors Evaluated Aggregate Price, the Weighted Aggregate Distribution Price will be added to the Aggregate Delivered Price. Please refer to paragraph (d) of this provision for further details regarding these price components. The award(s) will be made on the basis of the lowest Evaluated Aggregate Price (for each Group, if applicable) of proposals meeting or exceeding the acceptability standards for non-price factors. The Government reserves the right to remove item(s) from the Schedule of Items or do a common item comparison if offerors do not submit pricing for all items. Prior to award, the offered prices of the presumptive awardee(s) will be evaluated on an individual line-item basis to determine whether each price is fair and reasonable using analytical techniques deemed appropriate by the Contracting Officer in her/his complete discretion. (b) Options are not included in this solicitation. (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 offers 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. (d) Price Components: Weighted Aggregate Distribution Price: Aggregate Distribution Price is obtained by first multiplying the proposed distribution price for each item in the Schedule of Items by the items estimated quantity to calculate the total distribution price for each item. Then, the total distribution prices of all items will be added together to determine the total distribution price for tier 1. The total distribution price for each subsequent tier will also be calculated.The total distribution prices for all tiers will be added together to determine the Aggregate Distribution Price. The Aggregate Distribution Price is then multiplied by a weighting factor of 6 to arrive at the�Weighted Aggregate Distribution Price. Note: the weighting factor is applied only to the overall Aggregate Distribution Price (not on a line item basis) and is to be used for evaluation purposes only. The Governments use of a weighting factor of 6 for distribution pricing is done in order to more accurately balance the significance of the pricing components and their respective impact on any subsequent contract(s) issued under this solicitation. � � � �2. Aggregate Delivered Price: The Aggregate Delivered Price is obtained by first multiplying the proposed delivered price of each item in the Schedule of Items by the items estimated quantity to calculate the total delivered price for each item.� Then, the total delivered prices of all items will be added together to determine the total delivered price for tier 1. The total delivered price for each subsequent tier will also be calculated. The total delivered prices for all tiers will be added together to determine the Aggregate Delivered Price. � � � �3. Evaluated Aggregate Price: The Evaluated Aggregate Price is obtained by adding the Weighted Aggregate Distribution Price and and Aggregate Delivered Price together. � � � � 4. For purposes of the Price Proposal Evaluation, Weighted Aggregate Distribution Price and Aggregate Delivered Price are considered equal. This equality is accounted for mathematically by applying a weighting factor of 6 (based on current Government data) to the Aggregate Distribution Price.
