The following clauses are not applicable to CLINs to 0004 and 0008: 52.219-06 NOTICE OF TOTAL SMALL

The following clauses are added and are applicable only to CLINs 0004 and 0008:

The following evaluation factor is added to Section L of the solicitation and is applicable to
CLINs 0004 and 0008 only:
In addition to, and separate from, any subcontracting plan required by the clause 52.219-9, provide
a description of the current and future efforts your company will make to assure that small, small
disadvantaged, service-disabled veteran-owned, HUBZone, and women-owned small business concerns
will have equal opportunity to compete for subcontracts under any resulting contract. Also include
the extent of participation from any historically black colleges or universities and minority
institutions in the performance of the contract. Describe your current and planned proposed range
of services, supplies, and any other support that will be provided to you by these businesses.
Include specific names of subcontractors to the extent they are known.

For CLINs 0004 and 0008 only, Section M, on pages 46-48 of the solicitation, is replaced in its
entirety with the following:
General Basis for Award:
( x ) Multiple Awards: The Government intends to make an award to the offeror that represents the
best value to the Government. Additional awards for the same item or items may be made to
offeror(s) representing the next best value(s). Award(s) will be made in the combination that will
assure the Government needs in terms of delivery, quality, and price will be met during the life of
the contract(s). However, the government will award no more than 2 contracts per NSN or CLIN groups
as a result of the solicitation.

( ) Single or Split Awards: The award of each individual item of supply specified in this
solicitation will be made to the responsible offeror whose offer conforms to the solicitation and is most advantageous to the Government. In making the best value determination, the Government will make a comparative assessment of the offerors.

All proposals will be evaluated to determine that the offered price(s) reflects a technical understanding of the requirement and those considered unrealistic may be rejected.
Evaluation Factors:
The Government will base the determination of best value on a comparative assessment of the
offeror's prices, past performance, and other evaluation factors as identified in this
solicitation. The determination of best value also considers the relative importance of the evaluation factors. All evaluation factors, other than price, when combined are:
( x ) approximately equal to price; or
( ) significantly less important than price. As the evaluated price becomes more equal, relative importance of all other evaluation factors become more significant.
( ) significantly more important than price. As other evaluation factors become more equal, the
evaluated price becomes more important.
The final award decision may be made through a trade-off between price and the non-price factors.
The following factors, ranked in descending order of importance, will be considered in the
evaluation of proposals received under this solicitation:
1. Price
2. Past Performance
3. Proposed Delivery
4. Surge and Sustainment
5. Socioeconomic Support

The offer
identified in this
solicitation and, if indicated, the following:

DLAD 52.216-9013, ALT I, Evaluation of Offers for IDT Solicitations
( x ) Other (i.e. Government First Article Testing, Contractor First Article Testing, Data, etc.)

Evaluation of Offers - Government First Article Testing
The cost to the Government for first article testing shall be a factor in evaluating offers. The
Government's testing cost will be added to the offered price of the applicable item. Unless cited
elsewhere in this solicitation, the testing cost is shown below:
Item Government testing cost NSN 1005-00-572-3205 $11,009.63

Evaluation of Offers - Contractor First Article Testing
The cost offered by the contractor for performing the contractor first article testing shall be a
factor in evaluating offers. The contractor's testing cost will be added to the total offered price
of the applicable item. The Government will also evaluate the reasonableness of offered prices.

Past performance includes but is not limited to, the offeror's record of conforming to
specifications, to the standards of good workmanship, adherence to contract schedules, commitment
to customer satisfaction, and cooperative behavior. The Government will use the past performance
evaluation factors marked below:
( x ) Past Performance Information Retrieval System - Statistical Reporting (PPIRS-SR) ( x )
Socioeconomic Support

The Government may solicit information from an offeror's customers and business associates;
federal, state, and local government agencies; and from other persons and organizations as deemed
necessary. The Government reserves the right to limit the number of references it decides to query
and to contact references other than those provided by the offeror.

Past Performance Information Retrieval System - Statistical Reporting (PPIRS-SR):
The Government will consider the offeror's PPIRS-SR score/ranking and any other information
provided relating to the offeror's performance (see Section L). Evaluation of PPIRS-SR delivery
assessments will be based upon a numerical scale ranging from 0 (low) to 100 (high). If no delivery
records are found in PPIRS-SR, no delivery score will be assigned to the offeror for that specific
FSC. Quality performance will be assessed based upon relative ranking among all offerors within a
given FSC.

In the case of an offeror without a record of relevant past performance or for whom information on
past performance is not available in the PPIRS-SR, the offeror will be evaluated neither favorably
nor unfavorably on past performance.
