Evaluation Guidance

The following guidance was put together by the NSWC Panama City Engineering Liaison Office for use by evaluation teams in conducting task order evaluations:

First you must keep in mind that you are evaluating the proposals against (1) the requirements of the SOW and more importantly against (2) the factors laid out in Section M. You must use the rating system built in the SEAPORT website (when the time comes we can provide assistance in using the site).



DO remain objective when evaluating proposals (i.e., be consistent in your evaluation for everyone).

DO follow the evaluation criteria established in the RFQ.

DO write concise and substantiated evaluations of the factors, referencing applicable paragraphs from the specification/SOW/contract where the contractor meets or exceeds requirements. When writing comments cite examples from the offerors proposal when he either meets or does not meet a requirement. ALWAYS STATE WHY YOU ARE EVALUATING SOMETHING AS GOOD OR BAD.

DO prepare comments that relate to the factor being evaluated based on the requirement not opinion.

DO NOT use words that state or imply a comparison of the offerors response to the solicitation requirements with the responses of another Offeror.

DO NOT let hearsay knowledge of an offerors prior performance influence your evaluation of the current proposal being evaluated. However if you have detailed personal knowledge of bad performance that MAY be used in the evaluation. You CAN use your knowledge of what is required to accomplish a task in your evaluation of the proposal.

IN THE EVENT OFFEROR HAS NO RECORD OF RELEVANT PAST PERFORMANCE, OR INFORMATION ON PAST PERFORMANCE IS NOT AVAILABLE, THE OFFEROR WILL NOT BE EVALUATED EITHER FAVORABLY OR UNFAVORABLY ON PAST PERFORMANCE. A NEUTRAL RATING WILL BE ASSIGNED TO THIS EVALUATION FACTOR.

DO NOT write comments that state a Government opinion or assumption.

DO NOT ask a question unless the question will have an impact on the overall score or be relevant in the PCOs negotiations with the offerors.
