Where requested, satisfactory evidence of the authority of any signature on behalf of the Offeror shall be furnished. Unnecessarily elaborate brochures or other presentations beyond that sufficient to present a complete and effective proposal in response to this Solicitation are not desired and may be construed as an indication of the Offeror's lack of cost consciousness. The preparation of a proposal shall be by and at the expense of the Offeror. 5. EXAMINATION OF SOLICITATION DOCUMENTS AND EXPLANATION TO OFFERORS Any Offeror planning to submit a proposal is responsible for examining with appropriate care the complete Solicitation and all amendments and is also responsible for informing itself with respect to all conditions that might in any way affect the cost or the performance of any Work. Failure to do so will be at the sole risk of the Offeror, and no relief for errors or omissions by the Offeror can be given. Should the Offeror find discrepancies in or omissions from the Solicitation, or should the intent or meaning appear unclear or ambiguous, or should any other question arise relative to the Solicitation, the Offeror shall promptly notify CONTRACTOR in writing. The Offeror making such request will be solely responsible for its timely receipt by CONTRACTOR. Replies to such notices may be made in the form of an amendment to the Solicitation that will be issued simultaneously to all prospective Offerors. In order to address any questions in the Pre-Proposal Conference, Offerors desiring an explanation or interpretation of the Solicitation, drawings, specification, etc., must submit questions in writing no later than June 27, 2006. No verbal inquires will be accepted. Questions may be submitted via facsimile to 865-241-9330 or e-mail at bbv@bechteljacobs.org.Oral explanations or instructions given by CONTRACTOR before the award of the Subcontract will not be binding on CONTRACTOR. Any information given to a prospective Offeror concerning the Solicitation will be furnished promptly to all other prospective Offerors as an amendment to the Solicitation if that information is necessary in submitting proposals or if the lack of it would be prejudicial to any other prospective Offerors. 6. EXAMINATION OF SPECIFICATIONS NOT ATTACHED TO THIS SOLICITATION Specifications, standards, regulations, orders, etc. cited by reference in this Solicitation may not be available for distribution. CONTRACTOR will make every attempt to have these available at the Pre- Proposal Conference for review by prospective Offerors. Following the Pre-Proposal Conference, Offerors may examine these documents at CONTRACTOR’S Procurement office by submission of a written request to CONTRACTOR’s Procurement Representative. The request should identify the Solicitation number and the specification, etc., requested by date, title, and number, as cited in the Solicitation. Standards that are not available to Offerors from CONTRACTOR sources may be obtained from the organization responsible for their preparation, maintenance, or publication. 7. SITE LOCATION, INSPECTION, AND CONDITIONS The Work shall be performed at the East Tennessee Technology Park (ETTP), Oak Ridge, Tennessee. In addition to examination of the Solicitation documents and specifications, each prospective Offeror shall make whatever other arrangements are necessary to become fully informed regarding all existing and expected conditions and matters that might in any way affect the cost or the performance of the Work. Any failure to fully investigate the Site conditions shall not relieve the Offeror from responsibility for estimating properly the difficulty or cost of successfully performing any Work.

Instructions to Offerors-Construction - OR Request for Proposal No. 23900-RFP-DD155 Rev 2, 9/26/05 5 Bechtel Jacobs Company LLC
  7. 7. INSTRUCTIONS AND INFORMATION TO OFFERORS (CONSTRUCTION - OR) CONTRACTOR contemplates award of a lump sump. Subcontract in accordance with the requirements and conditions set forth or incorporated by reference in this Solicitation. Proposals for other than the total Work defined may be rejected. Award may not be made to any Offeror who has not responded to all instructions, certifications, and representations indicated in this Solicitation. CONTRACTOR may (i) reject any or all proposals if such action is in the best interest of CONTRACTOR or the Government, (ii) accept other than the lowest priced offer, and (iii) waive informalities and minor irregularities in offers received. CONTRACTOR may evaluate proposals and award a Subcontract without discussions with Offerors. Therefore, each initial proposal should contain the Offeror's best terms from a cost or price, business, and technical standpoint. However, CONTRACTOR reserves the right to conduct discussions if later determined to be necessary by CONTRACTOR's Procurement Representative. The Offeror agrees if its proposal is accepted within the number of days specified in Exhibit C to furnish any or all items upon which prices are offered at the set price opposite each item at the designated point(s) within the time specified in the schedule. Neither financial data submitted with a proposal nor representations concerning facilities or financing will form a part of the resulting Subcontract. However, if the resulting Subcontract contains a clause providing for price reduction for defective cost or pricing data, the Subcontract price will be subject to reduction if cost or pricing data furnished are incomplete, inaccurate, or not current. CONTRACTOR may determine that a proposal is unacceptable if the prices proposed are materially unbalanced between line items or sub-line items. A proposal is materially unbalanced when it is based on prices significantly less than cost for some Work and prices that are significantly overstated in relation to cost for other Work, and if there is a reasonable doubt that the proposal will result in the lowest overall cost to CONTRACTOR even though it may be the lowest evaluated proposal, or it is so unbalanced as to be tantamount to allowing an advance payment. If the resultant Subcontract will exceed $1,000,000 and the successful Offeror is not a small business concern or otherwise exempt, award will be contingent on submission and approval of a “Small Business, Small Disadvantaged Business, and Women-Owned Business Subcontracting Plan” in accordance with the Special Conditions. No award shall be made prior to CONTRACTOR approval of SUBCONTRACTOR’s subcontracting plan. 18. PROPOSAL EVALUATION CRITERIA Award will be made to the technically acceptable and responsible Offeror with the lowest evaluated price for the sum of pay items listed in Exhibit C. Technical data provided by the Offeror in Proposal Volume 1 “Technical Proposal” (see Section 24 of these Instructions) will be evaluated by the CONTRACTOR on a pass/fail basis. The Offeror must provide all data required on the Exhibit C Form(s). In order to pass, the data must demonstrate that the Offeror has an understanding of the technical requirements of the Subcontract resulting from this Solicitation. The CONTRACTOR will also evaluate the data submitted by the Offeror in Proposal Volume 2 “Business Management Proposal” (see Section 22 of these Instructions) on a pass/fail basis. All Exhibit C Form(s) required under Proposal Volume 2 must be executed completely, correctly, and accurately by the Offeror. Should the Offeror not complete all forms and documents the Offeror may be deemed non-responsive.

  8. 8. INSTRUCTIONS AND INFORMATION TO OFFERORS (CONSTRUCTION - OR) 19. EVALUATION EXCLUSIVE OF OPTIONS (RESERVED) 20. EVALUATION INCLUSIVE OF OPTIONS A. CONTRACTOR will evaluate proposals for award purposes by adding the total price for all options to the total price for the basic requirement. Evaluation of options will not obligate CONTRACTOR to exercise the option(s). B. CONTRACTOR may reject a proposal if it is materially unbalanced as to prices for the basic requirement and the option requirement(s). An offer is unbalanced when it is based on prices significantly less than cost for some Work and prices that are significantly overstated for other Work. 21. RIGHT TO CANCEL CONTRACTOR reserves the right to cancel this Solicitation, at no cost to either itself or the Government. 22. PRE-AWARD SURVEY If a proposal submitted in response to this Solicitation is favorably considered, a CONTRACTOR survey team may visit the Offeror’s facility to determine the Offeror’s ability to perform. The team may also evaluate the Offeror’s system for determining the financial and technical ability of the SUBCONTRACTOR and any proposed lower-tier subcontractors or suppliers. CONTRACTOR shall have the right to examine, at all reasonable times and with advance notice, SUBCONTRACTOR’S records and accounts for the purpose of verifying the reasonableness of SUBCONTRACTOR’S cost estimates and supporting documents used in the preparation of SUBCONTRACTOR’S proposal. CONTRACTOR shall have the right to copy materials as necessary to support this evaluation. Any equipment to be used in performance of the proposed Subcontract is also subject to inspection. 23.
