Peace Corps Partnership Program: http://www.peacecorps.gov/index.cfm?shell=resources.donors so" ann iversary: https://www.peacecorps.gov/index.cfm?shell=resources. returned. fiftieth .donate&

3. Has the Peace Corps drafted a preliminary case for support (i.e. clearly defined the uses of the funds to be raised and their impact on the constituencies you serve), or will fundraising counsel be asked to assist with this?

Response: OPSI has a draft case statement, however, we will look to the contractor to refine and customize the case statement based on identified needs and best practices/best business model/best fundraising strategies.

4. What staff or support, if any, is OPSI prepared to devote to the fundraising project?

Response: Specific staff within the Office of Private Sector Initiatives (OPSI) are prepared to work closely with the contractor and are ready immediately to engage prospects upon award/in August.

5. Do you have any introductory relationships with potential corporate and foundation funders, or would we be starting from scratch in opening doors there?

Response: OPSI does have a few pre-established relationships with potential corporate and foundation funders. However 97% of donors in FY09 were individuals.

6. Do you have volunteers in a leadership capacity (board, advisory group, etc) who might help open doors to potential funders?

Response: As a government agency, Peace Corps does not have a board of directors or an advisory group. However, several senior staff members have offered to assist throughout the campaign.

Response: As a government agency, Peace Corps does not have a board of directors or an advisory group. However, several senior staff members have offered to assist throughout the campaign.

Peace Corps RFP Solicitation No. PC-IO-Q-005

RESPONSES

8. Does OPSI have current contact information for the 200,000 returned Peace Corps volunteers? If so, what is the format?

Response: The agency is currently updating Returned Peace Corps Volunteer contact information in an electronic database.

9. Has OPSI considered establishing a separate supporting organization (501-c-3) as its fundraising arm? If so, what were the major considerations?

Response: Peace Corps does not have the statutory authority to establish a separate 501 (c)(3) fundraising arm.

10. On page 45, 2. Past Performance, last sentence, the RFP states "an adjectival risk assessment shall be assigned using the following adjectives:" but none are listed. What are they?

The Adjectival Ratings are detailed under Section M of the amended Solicitation.

11. What is required in a "Quality Assurance Surveillance Pian"?

The Quality Assurance Surveillance Plan describes how the government will monitor contractor Deliverables and Performance Objectives. The column that reads, "Disincentive" must be completed by the Contractor using best commercial practices. The Disincentive column provides a mechanism for application of negative incentives should the contractor fail to perform at the established performance standards.

12. Given that your schedule gives firms approximately 36 hours to review and formulate questions about a 48 page request for proposal, is there some way that we might ask additional questions at a later date?

The period for questions was extended through June 16 2010 and was posted on FedBizOpps. The period of time to submit proposals is extended via Amendment 002 to the Solicitation. All offerors should state any assumptions expressly in their proposals.

13. Some governmental agencies have great concerns about using corporate sponsorships in fundraising because of an implied conflict of interest. Do you envision that the Peace Corps will have concerns about such a fundraising technique?

Response: Yes, Peace Corps has concerns, which is why the RFP requires pre-approval for all donor arrangements.

14. On page 8 of the RFP you say that your target is to have 25-50% of the money raised by October 15,2010. Does "amount raised" refer to pledges or cash in hand?

Response: In the amended Solicitation posted with these questions, the target has been revised to 25% by the October 15, 2010. The amount raised refers to cash in hand. These are targets that Peace Corps has proposed; however, we would like offerors to include targets that they believe are realistic given the other variables described in the RFP.

-----~------------------.--------.------------------------

Peace Corps RFP Solicitation No. PC-IO-Q-005

RESPONSES

15. What is the status of any "volunteer" leadership to assist in the early stages of the campaign?

Response: As a government agency, Peace Corps does not have a board of directors or volunteers who work at a senior level garnering support for the agency. However, several senior staff members have offered to assist throughout the campaign

16. Are the staff prepared to engage prospects in August? If not, when will they be prepared to engage prospects?

Response: Specific staff within the Office of Private Sector Initiatives (OPSI) are prepared to work closely with the contractor and are ready immediately to engage prospects upon award/in August.

17. Is there a draft case statement for support of the 50th Anniversary or is the consultant expected to start from scratch in the development of a case statement?

Response: OPSI has a draft case statement, however, we will look to the contractor to refine and customize the case statement based on identified needs and best practices/best business models/best fundraising strategies.

18. In what format (paper, electronic and if electronic in what kind of database) is giving history of past donors stored? Please be as specific as possible.

Response: Peace Corps uses an Oracle based accounting system to store and manage all giving history. At this time, we do not have a relationship management software solution.

19. In what format are the records of former Peace Corps Volunteers stored? To what extent is the contact information current? For what percent of the former PCV's does it contain email addresses? Are those email addresses current?

Response: The agency is currently updating Returned Peace Corps Volunteer contact information in an electronic database. As this initiative is underway, the total percentage is undetermined at this time.

20. Is the contractor expected to conduct solicitations on behalf of the Peace Corps or are staff and volunteers expected to ask, following counsel's guidelines?

Response: Peace Corps staff will conduct the final solicitation of potential donors.

21. The RFP states (page 6) that the "OPSI's goal is two-fold", both to raise the $1.5 million quickly and to build an infrastructure for "large-scale fundraising for other initiatives". However, throughout the RFP there are references to the "Time is of the essence in raising the funds". This latter reference implies that the main focus is on the short term objective rather than the long term objective. Can you assure us that the ability to build the infrastructure - the longer term objective - will also be important in your evaluation of proposals?

Response: While raising the $1.5 million has a sense of immediate urgency, Peace Corps places high importance on the capacity building element to ensure long-term success. As stated in the evaluation factors, listed on page 44, the campaign strategy and capacity building are weighted heavier than the corporate capability, quality assurance plan and past performance sections of the offeror's proposal. In

Peace Corps RFP Solicitation No. PC-IO-Q-005

RESPONSES

light of this question, we are revising Section M to reflect that the campaign strategy is more important than the capacity building. They are subfactors of Criteria A. The subfactors for Criteria B are to be equally weighted.

22. On page 7 of the RFP you suggest a number of possible services which the Contractor "may" perform. Is it permissible to suggest a base price for certain services with additional costs for various services which the Peace Corps might or might not choose to have the Contractor perform?

Response: Yes, this would be appropriate and desirable. Any additional costs associated with optional services that Peace Corps might choose to have the Contractor perform should be included in the Offeror's proposal as priced options to distinguish themfrom services that are part of the firm-fixed price required services under the RFP.

23. Electronic wealth and philanthropic screening of constituents is one way to qualify and segment the prospect pool. The RFP mentions wealth analysis, which can be done in a few different forms. Is electronic screening a possible option? This would entail receiving key data points about the constituents.

Response: Yes, electronic screening is a possible option based on existing data points. Please provide the key data points required for this service in your proposal.

Section C

STATEMENT OF OBJECTIVES

FUNDRAISING, TRAINING AND RECRUITMENT SUPPORT SERVICES

Description/Specifications

1. BACKGROUND

Peace Corps is an independent executive agency of the Federal Government established in 1961 to promote world peace and friendship through the service of American volunteers abroad. Peace Corps has its headquarters in Washington, DC, with 9 Regional Recruiting Offices across the United States, and approximately 70 overseas field offices ("Posts"). At the beginning of FY09, there were approximately 8,000 Volunteers serving worldwide, a number we are hoping to expand in the years ahead.

Peace Corps is funded primarily via an annual two-year appropriation from Congress. In addition, the Agency receives targeted financial support via Inter-Agency Reimbursable Agreements, Transfers from Other Agencies, i.e. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) funding from US AID, Host Country Contributions, and private donations.

The Peace Corps traces its roots and mission to 1960, when then Senator John F. Kennedy challenged students at the University of Michigan to serve their country in the cause of peace by living and working in developing countries. From that inspiration grew an agency of the federal government devoted to world peace and friendship.

Since that time, nearly 200,000 Peace Corps Volunteers have served in 139 host countries to work on issues ranging from AIDS education to information technology and environmental preservation.

The Peace Corps' mission has three simple goals:

• Helping the people of interested countries in meeting their need for trained men and women.

• Helping promote a better understanding of Americans on the part of the peoples served.

• Helping promote a better understanding of other peoples on the part of Americans.

Today's Peace Corps is more vital than ever, working in emerging and essential areas such as information technology and business development, and committing more than 1,000 new Volunteers as a part of the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief. Peace Corps Volunteers continue to help countless individuals who want to build a better life for themselves, their children, and their communities.

2. PURPOSE/OBJECTIVES

The year 2011 marks the so" anniversary of the Peace Corps. Plans are underway to engage people around the world in events that will celebrate the legacy of Peace Corps and gain momentum as we embark on the next fifty years.

The historic speech by John F. Kennedy to students at the University of Michigan inspired the creation of the Peace Corps in 1961. A commemoration of that speech in October of 2010 will launch the Peace Corps' 50th anniversary celebration. Peace Corps will host a series of events, approximately one per month, throughout 2011. Many events will have costs associated with them, but some will not.

Due to a change in administration and time involved in developing the strategy for the so" anniversary, the agency has a very short timeframe to raise the estimated funds required to support these events. Time is of the essence in raising the funds.

The total estimated cost for all events taking place in 2011 is approximately $1.5 million. The money raised will help cover expenses associated with an event on the National Mall, a gift of historical materials to the Smithsonian Institution, museum exhibits, and collateral materials associated with the so" anniversary, etc.

It is important to note that the intent of the so" anniversary is not to host a large party to celebrate Peace Corps' successes over the last 50 years. Rather, the so" anniversary is an opportunity for the Peace Corps to thank the American people, the countries that have invited us to serve, and those that have supported the agency over the years. The so" anniversary goals are listed below:

Overarching Goal

Maximize this opportunity to support the agency's mission and legacy by honoring its past, spotlighting its current relevance and advancing the Third Goal through education and engagement.

50th Anniversary Specific IGoals

• Make the public aware of the success and impact of Peace Corps in fostering peace and understanding;

• Advance the Third Goal of Peace Corps - bringing the world back home to share with the American public;

• Support recruiting efforts to grow Peace Corps and meet the goals of the President and Congress; and,

• Recognize and honor those who have contributed to the success of the Peace Corps; Peace Corps Volunteers (and staff), host countries and national leaders.

3. CURRENT CAPACITY

The Peace Corps' Office of Private Sector Initiatives ("OPSI") solicits and accepts donations on behalf of the agency. Since 1964, OPSI's signature program has been the Peace Corps Partnership Program ("Partnership Program" or "PCPP"), to fund Volunteer projects worldwide. Most Volunteers undertake projects with their host communities that require little to no outside funding. However, there are times

Page 5 of 46

.........

~ Fundraising, Training and Recruitment Support for 50th Anniversary Events

AMENDMENT 002 AMENDED 6128110

RFP Solicitation No. PC-IO-Q-005

when local resources are unable to meet local needs. In these instances, the Partnership Program can help. In conjunction with their communities, Volunteers submit a project proposal to OPSI. In turn, OPSI solicits donations from the families and friends of Volunteers on their behalf. OPSI does receive some funding from other sources; even so, 97% of donors in FY09 were individuals. During FY09, OPSI raised over $2 million from 10,595 donors for 637 projects. The average donation was approximately $175.

The Partnership Program is very successful and has doubled in size in the last four years, both in the number of donors and the number of projects. OPSI staffing levels have, for the most part, remained constant during this time of significant growth. In recent years, time has been spent on building the infrastructure needed to maintain quality growth. It is important to note that OPSI is responsible for the implementation and management of the Partnership Program as well as accepting donations on behalf of each PCPP project.

Currently, OPSI is a staff of nine: Director, Program Manager, two Program Specialists, two Program Support Assistants, Marketing Specialist, Administrative Officer, and an Administrative Specialist. The Program Specialists and one of the Program Support Assistants are wholly dedicated to the implementation of the Partnership Program. The Administrative Officer and Specialist manage all fiscal tasks related to the acceptance, processing, and allocation of donations to the agency. The remaining staff has more flexibility in their workload; however, a large part of time is allocated to the management of the Partnership Program.

The fundraising focus, since 1964, has been on grassroots fundraising and has targeted a very specific demographic - friends and family of currently serving Volunteers. The type of fundraising required for the so" anniversary employs a different strategy. Historically, Peace Corps' donor engagement activities have been typically based around a one-time transaction - a friend or family member donating to a specific Volunteer project. Most business processes are manual from inputting donor data into a financial database to processing hard copies of tax receipts/thank you letters.

There is a move to automate our processes in many significant ways. OPSI intends to implement a customer relationship management (CRM) solution in the near future. We are also working closely with our financial and IT offices to automate various manual processes.

There is an opportunity to reach out to an untapped market. After an initial donation to a PCPP project, OPSI has not asked donors to consider additional or repeat donations. OPSI has not engaged in outreach activities to garner support from the nearly 200,000 Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs) around the world. Also, there is an opportunity to build stronger relationships with the various state or country-of-service groups (e.g. RPCVs of Colorado or Friends of Mali).

In hiring an outside firm to fundraise for the so" anniversary, OPSl's goal is two-fold. One, we need to raise the required funds for so" anniversary events and activities (approximately $1.5 million) and raise them quickly. Two, OPSI must acquire the infrastructure and capacity required to engage in large-scale fundraising for other initiatives and agency needs as well as build on the momentum of the capital campaign following the completion of the contract. OPSI will work closely with the firm throughout the contract to ensure that all relationships developed are clearly viewed as Peace Corps' and so that the capacity stays with the agency once the firm's work is complete.

AMENDMENT 002 AMENDED 6128110

4. CHALLENGES

As a government agency with a 170(c)(1) tax status, certain factors may limit the ability to fundraise in the same way a typical 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization can.

• While 100% of each donation goes to the intended program and/or project and donations are tax-deductible, donors, such as foundations and trusts, may be unfamiliar with donating to a 170( c)( 1) and determine that they cannot.

5. OVERARCHING OBJECTIVES

Services

The Contractor may perform, any or all of, the following services, as well as ancillary or related services:

Feasibility Study: An objective analysis of Peace Corps' fund raising potential that measures our case strength and the available resources. The written report includes findings, recommendations, and a campaign plan, timetable, and budget.

Capital Campaign Strategy: A written document, outlining the case statement, methods, milestones, and implementation plan that Peace Corps will use to embark upon an intensive, time-limited fundraising endeavor to fund all so" anniversary events.

Capacity Development: Training, activities and infrastructure building with Peace Corps/OPSI staff with the goal of increasing fundraising abilities or skills within as well as improving staffing and resource allocation for increased efficiency.

Prospect Research: Identification and analysis of current and new prospective donors to support Peace Corps programs and initiatives. This may involve wealth analysis, propensity for charitable giving and/or identification of mutual objectives.

Donor Cultivation: Actively engage and/or train current staff in the educative process to inform, promote, and encourage interest and/or involvement in Peace Corps programs and initiatives on the part of a potential donor.

Gift Chart Development: Development of a gift chart, which details the size and number of gifts that may be needed at each level of giving in order to achieve the so" anniversary campaign goal. Charts would need to include identification of specific prospects and all contact information.

Outreach Activities: Development of specific materials or activities to raise awareness of Peace Corps fundraising goals.

Staff Training: Training OPSI team members in a variety of development methods with the intent to build sustainable capacity within OPSI.

Fundraising: Raise the required funds for so" anniversary events and activities(approximately $1.5 million) All donations - either monetary or in-kind services ~ must be made directly to the Peace Corps. The Contractor shall not structure the fund raising efforts so that any donations are made to the Contractor on behalf of Peace Corps. All gifts must be pre-approved by Peace Corps in accordance with Peace Corps policies.

It is the policy of Peace Corps to exclude from employment any persons who have engaged in intelligence activity or related work or who have been employed by or connected with an intelligence Agency. Contractor personnel include subcontractors as well.

• All Contractor personnel assigned to these tasks must be able to read, write, speak, and understand English.

H.S Peace Corps Personnel Identity Verification Procedures

The Peace Corps personnel identity verification procedures are as follows:

• All Contractor and Subcontractor personnel shall meet Peace Corps requirements for access to sensitive information prior to working with Peace Corps information.

• In compliance with Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12), Peace Corps will conduct background checks of all new contractor employees to verify their suitability for access to Peace Corps information, and, if necessary, physical access to Peace Corps facilities. If a proposed contractor employee has an active security clearance granted by another Federal agency, which can be verified through Office of Personnel Management's Clearance Verification System, and the contractor employee was processed via HSPD-12 Personal Identity Verification procedures, the proposed contractor employee will normally not have to be re-investigated.

• Contractor employees will be required to complete a security questionnaire and fingerprints cards at least 14 days prior to the date that they expect to begin work. Pending the submission of these documents, Peace Corps' Office of Safety and Security (SS) will conduct pivotal

records checks, including those of the credit bureau and national law enforcement agencies. Following the receipt of the results of those inquiries, a determination will be made as to whether or not the contractor employee should be given interim access to Peace Corps information/facilities while the remainder of the investigation is completed. If a favorable determination is made, SS will grant interim access. The contractor employee shall abide by all security requirements of the Agency for access to information and/or facilities, including use of accounts, wearing of badge, evacuation plans, etc.

RFP Solicitation No. PC-IO-Q-005

• Upon the favorable adjudication of the completed investigation, the contractor employee's status will be changed from interim to final. If however, during the course of the investigation, an issue is discovered that could impact on granting final unescorted access status, the contractor employee will be barred from unescorted access to Peace Corps information/facilities until the precipitating issue can be resolved.

• If for any reason, at the sole discretion of the Peace Corps, the Office of Safety and Security denies a contractor employee final unescorted access to information or facilities, the contractor shall immediately assign a replacement resource with similar qualifications to provide the required services. The replacement employee will be subject to the procedures outlined above.

• At the end of contractor employee's performance for the Peace Corps, whether at the end of the contract or during the period of performance, the contractor employee shall turn in his/her Peace Corps issued identification badge and all individually issued government furnished equipment to COTR prior to departure. The applicable Peace Corps Staffing Analyst for the COTR will promptly remove the contractor employee from software tracking systems such as e-mail, Personnel Tracking System (PTS), etc.

• Because some components of Peace Corps information systems may be subject to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR), all Contractor personnel must be U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents.

• On a regular basis throughout the contract, the Contract Manager will advise the COTR of changes in contractor employee status, especially in cases of termination for cause or other circumstances that may present a threat to agency information, information systems, or facilities.

• Contractor shall ensure this clause is incorporated into all subcontracts associated with their work under this task.

H.6 Confidentiality/Dissemination of Information

The confidentiality and disclosure provisions of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act prohibit disclosure of any charge or charge-related information. The Contractor shall agree that such information will not be disclosed and will only be used for the performance of their responsibilities under this contract.

There shall be no dissemination or publication, except within and between the Contractor and any subcontractors, of information obtained or developed under this contract or contained in the reports to be furnished pursuant to this contract, without the prior written approval of the Contracting Officers Technical Representative (COTR) or the CO.

H.7 Government Property

The Contractor must be responsible for safeguarding all government property provided for Contractor use. Damage to, or loss of, U.S. Government Property when it is due to the Contractor's negligence shall result in the Contractor being liable for repair or replacement thereof. The Government may withhold from amounts otherwise due the Contractor any amount the Contracting Officer determines to be necessary to protect the Government against loss as a result of Contractor negligence.

H.S Rights To Intellectual and/or Creative Data (May 2003)

All Contractor's rights or interests, including but not limited to, rights under copyright laws (federal otherwise) and copyright common law, in any and all deliverable items, collateral materials, or any other

products created or provided under this contract shall hereby be assigned and transferred to the Peace Corps in this contract, including the right to modify same, to use same, and to authorize others to use same in their original or modified form for any purpose.

H.9 ORGANIZATIONAL CONFLICT OF INTEREST

General

The term "organizational conflict of interest" means that the Contractor (which term hereinafter shall be deemed to include its chief executives, directors, any consultants, or subcontractors utilized under this contract other than a vendor selling incidental material) has interests which (i) may diminish its capacity to give impartial, technically sound, objective assistance and advice in performing this contract, (ii) may otherwise result in a biased work product under this contract, or (iii) may result in an unfair competitive advantage to itself or others.

The Contractor's attention is directed to FAR Subpart 9.5, Organizational Conflicts of Interest. In the execution of certain contract tasks, it is anticipated that assigned Contractor personnel will require access to confidential or proprietary business, technical and financial information belonging to the Government or other companies. The information may include but is not limited to pre-decisional budget and acquisition sensitive information, preparation of specifications or work statements, and evaluation services. After receipt thereof, the Contractor and affected individuals shall treat such information as confidential and agree not to appropriate such information to its own use or to disclose such information to third parties unless specifically authorized by the contracting officer in writing. The foregoing obligations, however, shall not apply to:

Information which, at the time of receipt by the Contractor, is in the public domain;

Information which is published after receipt thereof by the Contractor or otherwise becomes part of the public domain through no fault of the Contractor;

Information which the Contractor can demonstrate was in his possession at the time of receipt thereof and was not acquired directly or indirectly from the Government or other companies;

Information, which the Contractor can demonstrate, was received by it from a third party that did not require the Contractor to hold it in confidence.

The Contractor shall obtain the written agreement, in a form satisfactory to the contracting officer, of each employee permitted access, whereby the employee agrees that he will not discuss, divulge or disclose any such information or data to any person or entity except those persons within the Contractor's organization directly concerned with the performance of the contract.

The Contractor agrees, if requested by the Government, to sign an agreement identical, in all material respects, to the provisions of this clause, with each company supplying information to the Contractor under this contract, and to supply a copy of such agreement to the contracting officer. From time to time upon request of the contracting officer, the Contractor shall supply the Government with reports itemizing information received as confidential, proprietary, pre-decisional budget information, or acquisition sensitive information, and setting forth the company or companies from which the Contractor received such information.

Page 18 of46

~ Fundraising, Training and Recruitment Support for 50th Anniversary Events

AMENDMENT 002 AMENDED 6/28/10

RFP Solicitation No. PC-IO-Q-005

The Contractor agrees that upon request by the Contracting Officer it will execute a contracting officer approved agreement with any party whose facilities or proprietary data it is given access to or is furnished, restricting use and disclosure of the data or the information obtained from the facilities. Upon request by the contracting officer, Contractor personnel shall also sign such an agreement.

If after award, the Contractor discovers an organizational conflict of interest, with respect to this contract, it shall make an immediate and full disclosure in writing to the Contracting Officer. The disclosure shall include identification of the conflict, the manner in which it arose, and a description of the action the Contractor has taken or proposes to take to avoid, eliminate or neutralize the conflict. The Government may, however, terminate the contract.

In the event that the Contractor was aware of an organizational conflict of interest prior to award of this contract and did not disclose the conflict to the Contracting Officer or becomes aware of an organizational conflict of interest after award of this contract and does not disclose the conflict of interest within ten (10) working days of becoming aware of such conflict, the Government may terminate the contract and the Contractor shall not be entitled to reimbursement of any cost incurred in performing this contract or payment of any fee there under. Further, such costs shall not be allocable or chargeable, directly or indirectly, to any other contract with the Government.

The rights and remedies of the Government provided in this clause shall not be exclusive and are in addition to any other rights and remedies of the Government provided by law or under this contract.

The Contractor agrees that during performance of the contract and for a period of three (3) years after the completion of performance of this contract, the Contractor, including all divisions thereof, and any affiliate of the Contractor, any joint venture involving the Contractor, any entity into or with which it may subsequently merge or affiliate, or any other successor or assign of the Contractor, shall not:

(a) Supply information or material received from this contract, to any firm participating in or having a known prospective interest in the subject matter areas for which the sensitive information described in paragraph (i) above was initially submitted, nor enter into any contractual relationship which would .affect or appear to affect the equity and integrity of its recommendations.

(b) Furnish to the United States Government, either as a prime Contractor or as a subcontractor, any component of any system for which the sensitive information described in paragraph (1) above was initially submitted, that it is not currently obligated to deliver for defense purposes.

This provision shall flow down to all subcontracts and teaming agreements.

No data provided to the Contractor or collected by the Contractor for the purpose of work performance shall be used outside of the contract. At the end of the contract term, the Contractor and all subcontractors shall return said data and destroy additional copies of said data files, etc.

H.10 KEY PERSONNEL (MAY 2003)

After the initial gO-calendar day period, the Contractor shall submit the information required by paragraph (b) to the Contracting Officer at least 15 calendar days prior to making any permanent substitutions.

(b) Prior to diverting any of the specified individuals to other projects, or otherwise substituting any other personnel for specified personnel, the Contractor shall notify the Contracting Officer reasonably in advance but not less than 15 calendar days prior and shall submit justification (including proposed substitutions) in sufficient detail to permit evaluation of the impact on the contract effort. Proposed substitutions must have comparable qualifications to those of the persons being replaced. No diversion shall be made by the Contractor without the written consent of the Contracting Officer; provided that the Contracting Officer may ratify a diversion or substitution in writing and that ratification shall constitute the consent of the Contracting Officer required by this clause.

(4) 0 Have, 0 have not, within a three-year period preceding this offer, been notified of any delinquent Federal taxes in an amount that exceeds $3,000 for which the liability remains unsatisfied.

(i) Taxes are considered delinquent if both of the following criteria apply:

(A) The tax liability is finally determined. The liability is finally determined if it has been assessed. A liability is not finally determined if there is a pending administrative or judicial challenge. In the case of a judicial challenge to the liability, the liability is not finally determined until all judicial appeal rights have been exhausted.

(B) The taxpayer is delinquent in making payment. A taxpayer is delinquent if the taxpayer has failed to pay the tax liability when full payment was due and required. A taxpayer is not delinquent in cases where enforced collection action is precluded.

(ii) Examples.

(A) The taxpayer has received a statutory notice of deficiency, under I.R.C. §6212, which entitles the taxpayer to seek Tax Court review of a proposed tax deficiency.

In the course of the hearing, the taxpayer is entitled to contest the underlying tax liability because the taxpayer has had no prior opportunity to contest the liability. This is not a delinquent tax because it is not a final tax liability. Should the taxpayer seek tax court review, this will not be a final tax liability until the taxpayer has exercised all judicial appeal rights.

(C) The taxpayer has entered into an installment agreement pursuant to I.R.C. §6159. The taxpayer is making timely payments and is in full compliance with the agreement terms. The taxpayer is not delinquent because the taxpayer is not currently required to make full payment.

(D) The taxpayer has filed for bankruptcy protection. The taxpayer is not delinquent because enforced collection action is stayed under 11 U.S.C. §362 (the Bankruptcy Code).

(i) Certification Regarding Knowledge of Child Labor for Listed End Products (Executive Order 13126).

Offerors are reminded that while the Government may elect to consider data obtained by other sources, the burden of providing thorough and complete past performance information rests with the Offeror.

The Government will evaluate the degree to which the Offeror successfully performed the work included in its proposal, as a past performance reference. The success of the Offeror on previous contracts of similar size and scope will be used as one indicator of an Offeror's ability to perform the contract successfully. Past performance will be subject to a risk assessment and will be limited to the relevant experience of the Offeror.

EVALUATION RATINGS

Proposals will be evaluated based on the following adjectival ratings:

OUTSTANDING

Proposal satisfies all of the Government's requirements and indicates thorough and comprehensive understanding of the requirement and offers numerous significant strengths, which are not offset by weaknesses, with an overall low degree of risk in meeting the Government's requirement.

GOOD

indicates a superficial or vague understanding of the requirement, with an overall high degree of risk in meeting the Government's requirement.

UNACCEPTABLE

The proposal contains major error(s), omission(s) or deficiency (ies) and indicates a lack of understanding of the requirement and cannot be expected to meet the requirement or involves a very high risk.

PRICE EVALUATION

Price proposal will be evaluated separately and overall prices are considered less important than the strengths of the combined technical factors. However, where proposals are considered essentially equal, price may be the determining factor in selecting a Contractor for award. The overall standard for judging price proposals will be whether the price proposal presents the best value to the government for the technical approach proposed.

The Government reserves the right to make an award to other than the lowest priced Offeror if the Contracting Officer determines that to do so would be most advantageous to the Government.

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 offer's 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.
