The Consultant must demonstrate its and each key consultant’s qualifications with respect to the published evaluation criteria for all services.
Evaluation Criteria (1) and (2) are considered most important and equal among themselves; Criteria (3) through (5) are slightly less important and equal among themselves; Criteria (6) and (7) are of lesser importance still and equal among themselves; and Criterion (8) is the least important and will be used as a tiebreaker among technically equal firms. SF 330s will be evaluated to determine the most highly qualified firm based on criterion responses. Failure to provide requested data or to comply with the instructions in this Notice could result in a firm being considered less qualified or eliminated from consideration. Specific evaluation criteria include:
Criterion 1 – Specialized Experience (SF 330 Part 1 Section F): Offerors will be evaluated on specialized experience and technical competence of the proposed team in provision of the primary tasks required under this contract; knowledge of SDSFIE; and experience in GIS development for federal facilities utilizing ArcGIS and ArcSDE.
Submission Requirements: The Contractor shall provide a maximum of five (5) projects that were completed or substantially completed since June 2007 and best illustrate specialized experience of the proposed team.
All projects provided in the SF 330 must be completed by the office/branch/regional office/individual team member actually proposed to manage and perform work under this contract. Projects not meeting this requirement will be excluded from evaluation. The format for the projects shall include: Experience as prime or consultant (please identify), point of contact name, e-mail address, phone number, contract number or project identification number, contract period of performance, award contract value, current contract value and a summary of the work performed that demonstrates relevance to specialized experience as outlined above.
Note: If the Offeror is a joint venture (JV), information should be submitted as a joint venture; however, if there is no information for the joint venture, information should be submitted for each joint venture partner not to exceed a combined total of five (5) projects.
If a project was performed by a joint venture, and all joint venture partners are not on the team proposed for this contract, the offeror/team should specifically address the work performed by the joint venture partner offering/teaming on this contract. Likewise, if the offeror/team member worked as a subcontractor on a project, the description should clearly describe the work actually performed by the offeror/team member and the roles and responsibilities of each on the project, rather than the work performed on the project as a whole. If the project description does not clearly delineate the work performed by the entity/entities offering/teaming on this contract, the project could be eliminated from consideration.
Projects shall be submitted on the SF-330 and shall be completed or substantially completed projects.
Projects not completed or substantially completed will be excluded from evaluation consideration. For submittal purposes, a task order on an IDIQ contract is considered a project. Do not list an IDIQ contract as an example of a completed project. Instead, list relevant completed task orders that fit within the definition above. Failure to provide requested data, accessible points of contact, or valid phone numbers could result in a firm being considered less qualified.
Criterion 2 - Professional Qualifications and Technical Competence (SF 330 Part 1 Section E and Section G): Offerors will be evaluated on professional qualifications and competence of the key personnel to be assigned to this contract in A-E services to include preparation of the services required under this contract; knowledge of SDSFIE; and experience in GIS development for federal facilities utilizing ArcGIS and ArcSDE; and professional registration of the engineering and surveying staff and ESRI certified trainers, including, but not limited to, PE, RA, GISP, ASPRS.

Submission Requirements: Describe the firm’s ability to concurrently perform and manage multiple projects in different locations to meet aggressive schedules and control costs.
Provide a logical identification of explicit assignment of responsibilities among corporate team and subcontractor members. Discuss past working experience and relationship with key consultants.

Failure to provide requested data, accessible points of contact, or valid phone numbers could result in a firm being considered less qualified. NOTE: Past performance information for projects listed under Criterion 1 will be given greater weight.
Submission Requirements: IF A COMPLETED CPARS/ACASS EVALUATION IS AVAILABLE FOR A PROJECT UNDER CRITERION 1, IT SHALL BE SUBMITTED WITH THE COMPLETED SF 330 PACKAGE.

AN OFFEROR SHALL NOT SUBMIT A PPQ WHEN A COMPLETED CPARS/ACASS IS AVAILABLE.
IF A CPARS/ACASS EVALUATION IS NOT AVAILABLE, ensure correct phone numbers and email addresses are provided for the client point of contact. Completed PPQs should be submitted with your SF 330. If the offeror is unable to obtain a completed PPQ from a client for a project(s) before the response date set forth in this notice, the offeror should complete and submit with their response the first page of the PPQ (Attachment), which will provide contract and client information for the respective project(s). Offerors should follow-up with clients/references to ensure timely submittal of questionnaires.
