TECHNICAL CAPABILITY. The evaluation will consider the following:

  • Solution knowledge and technical expertise – The technical proposal, consisting only of the templates provided in Attachment G (Proposal Booklet), will be evaluated to determine the extent to which the offeror is knowledgeable and capable of providing solutions which are appropriate, timely, effective, and efficient, including the offeror’s capability to manage a contract of this size and scope. Offeror’s successful experience will be factored into overall technical capability.
  • Subcontractor and employee experience may be used.
  • Offerors must state that the experience is that of a proposed subcontractor or employee.
  • Experience of subcontractors or employees may not be rated as favorably as that of the prime.
  • The proposal will be evaluated to determine the level of confidence provided the Government with respect to the offeror’s methods and approach in successfully meeting the anticipated requirements with current technologies, services, and techniques available in the commercial marketplace and innovative strategies that will provide a benefit to the Government.
