SECTION M – EVALUATION FACTORS FOR AWARD The Government will award multiple contracts resulting from this solicitation to the responsible offeror whose offer conforming to the solicitation will be most advantageous to the Government, including price and other factors. M.1 TECHNICAL PROPOSAL EVALUATION CRITERIA The following factors shall be used to evaluate proposals with non-price factors when combined, being significantly more important than price: 1. Technical Capability The Contractor must demonstrate its ability to perform the specific tasks outlined in Section C: STATEMENT OF OBJECTIVES/SPECIFICATIONS. The offeror will be evaluated based on the technical proposal provided which demonstrates ability to perform the required services including establishing a Peace Corps Recruiting Office, implementing a campus-wide Recruitment Strategy Plan and reporting back to the Peace Corps Regional Recruitment Office. 2. Management Approach The Contractor must clearly explain how the potential Campus Recruiter will be recruited, hired and supervised to manage the Peace Corps Recruitment Office and carry out recruitment strategies and activities on campus. The hiring timeline for the Campus Recruiter position is also required. The Contractor must also explain how an institutional employee will be selected and assigned to work as the supervisor for the Campus Recruiter. Supervisory responsibilities include ensuring that the Campus Recruiter is aware of and working in a responsible and professional manner to fulfill his or her recruitment strategies and activities. 3. Past Performance Offeror’s technical capability will be assessed on the extent to which the offeror demonstrates successful experience in the areas described in the Statement of Objectives. In evaluating past performance, the Government may contact some of the references provided by the offeror and other sources of information.

M.2 PRICE EVALUATION 4. Price Price proposals shall be evaluated separately. Where proposals are considered essentially equal, price may be determining factor in selecting a Contractor for award. M.3 EVALUATION RATINGS Proposals will be evaluated on a best value continuum and the following adjectival ratings will be applied: Excellent The proposal exceeds the fullest expectations of the Government. The Contractor has convincingly demonstrated that the evaluation requirements have been analyzed, evaluated, and should result in outstanding, effective, efficient, and economical performance under the contract. The proposal is comprehensive, thorough and of exceptional merit. No deficiencies or significant weaknesses have been found. When applied to criteria and/or the proposal as a whole, an outstanding rating indicates that no deficiencies or significant weaknesses exist within any sub-criteria that represent a performance risk within the criteria and/or the proposal as a whole. Good The proposal demonstrates overall competence, meets all minimum requirements and exceeds requirements in some areas but not all. No deficiencies or significant weaknesses are apparent. Strengths outbalance any weaknesses that exist. No more than a few minor weaknesses have been identified that are easily correctable and do not represent a performance risk. When applied to criteria and/or the proposal as a whole, a good rating indicates that no deficiencies or significant weaknesses exist within any sub-criteria that represent a performance risk within the criteria and/or the proposal as a whole. No more than a few minor weaknesses have been identified within the criteria and/or proposal that are easily correctable and do not represent a performance risk. Fair The proposal is reasonably sound and meets the minimum requirements. The proposal may contain weaknesses and/or significant weaknesses that are correctable but no deficiencies. If any weaknesses and/or significant weaknesses are noted, they should not seriously affect the Contractor’s performance.

When applied to the criteria and/or the proposal as a whole, a fair rating indicates that there are no major deficiencies within the criteria and/or proposal that will represent a performance risk. Any significant or minor weaknesses that have been identified within the criteria and/ or proposal are correctable. They should not seriously affect the Contractor’s performance. Poor The proposal demonstrates a shallow understanding of the requirements and approach and marginally meets the minimal requirements for acceptable performance. The proposal contains weaknesses and/or significant weaknesses and may contain deficiencies. If deficiencies exist, they may be correctable with a significant revision of the proposal. The Contractor may complete the assigned tasks; however, there is a moderate risk that the Contractor will not be successful. When applied to the criteria and/or the proposal as a whole, a poor rating indicates that there are deficiencies and/or significant weaknesses within the criteria and/or proposal that represent a moderate performance risk. Only a significant revision of the proposal would correct these areas of concern. Unacceptable The proposal fails to meet minimum requirements or contains one or more major deficiencies. The proposal is incomplete, vague, incompatible, incomprehensible, or so incorrect as to be unacceptable. The evaluator feels that the deficiency or deficiencies is/are uncorrectable without a major revision of the proposal. The deficiencies, weaknesses and/or significant weaknesses would seriously affect the Contractor’s performance and represent a high risk that the Contractor will not be successful. END SECTION M
