k. Materials submitted to BMDO for release purposes shall be void of all Contractor logos or other attributions to the Contractor.

H-4 ORGANIZATIONAL CONFLICT OF INTEREST (OCI)

a. Purpose: The primary purpose of this clause is to aid in ensuring that:

(1) the Contractor's scientific objectivity and judgment are not biased because of its present, or currently planned interests (financial, contractual, organizational, or otherwise) which relate to work under this contract;

(2) the Contractor does not obtain an unfair competitive advantage by virtue of its access to non-public Government information regarding the Government's program plans and actual or anticipated resources;

(3) the Contractor does not obtain any unfair competitive advantage by virtue of its access to proprietary information belonging to others; and

(4) all CD phase contractors have equal access to data in the Contractor's possession in which the Government has or, upon delivery, will have unlimited rights under the various element contracts ("Government data").

b. Scope: The restrictions described herein shall apply to performance or participation by the Contractor and any of its affiliates or their successors in interest (hereinafter collectively referred to as "Contractor") in the activities covered by this clause as prime Contractor, subcontractor, co-sponsor, joint venturer, consultant, or in any similar capacity. The term "proprietary information" for purposes of this clause is any information considered so valuable by its owners that it is held secret by them and their licensees. Information furnished voluntarily by the owner without limitations on its use, or which is available without restrictions from other sources, is not considered proprietary.

(1) Preparing specifications or work statements: FAR 9.505-2(a)(3) provides that: In development work, it is normal to select firms that have done the most advanced work in the field. These firms can be expected to design and develop around their own prior knowledge. Development contractors can frequently start production earlier and more knowledgeably than firms that did not participate in the development, and this can affect the time and quality of production, both of which are important to the Government. In many instances the Government may have financed the development. Thus while the development contractor has a competitive advantage, it is an unavoidable one that is not considered unfair; hence no prohibition should be imposed.

However, there remains the potential for key element contractors to enter into a teaming agreement that might limit the ability of other potential offerors to obtain access to Government data developed under element contracts. While the Government recognizes that teaming may be beneficial to meeting the Government's acquisition goals, relationships that preclude access to element level information could severely limit competition for the NMD LSI acquisition. In order to maximize competition for the CD phase and, therefore the government's potential for receiving an optimal number of NMD concepts for consideration, NMD element contractors are precluded from establishing exclusive arrangements for the CD phase of the acquisition that would limit competition by excluding other potential offerors access to Government data.

Teaming contractors are required to share non-proprietary data and related information on the elements under their cognizance gained at government expense with other qualified potential LSI contractors. These elements include the Ground Based Radar-Prototype (GBR-P), the Battle Management, Command, Control, and Communications (BMC3) element, and two alternative Exoatmospheric Kill Vehicles (EKV). In order to provide for fair and equitable competition and to mitigate potential OCIs associated with their prior work and experience with these elements, the respective element contractors have agreed to provide all legitimate offerors competing in the Concept Definition phase of the LSI acquisition with available Government data and limited technical support relating to the element under their cognizance.

TRW (SE&I) has agreed that the TRW employees who are working in the program office located in Rosslyn, Virginia, responsible for NMD Systems Engineering on or after the date of the issuance of the final CD phase RFP will be isolated and ineligible to participate in the CD phase. While element contractors will provide limited technical support to the CD contractors, element contractors will not be restricted in establishing teaming arrangements for the CD phase or the LSI phase down-selection. In addition, both TRW and Raytheon have agreed to negotiate, in good faith, subcontractor relationships with the selected LSI phase contractor to provide the BMC3 and GBR elements of the LSI phase contract, no matter who is selected.

(2) Access To and Use of Government Information: If the Contractor, in the performance of this contract, obtains access to information such as plans, policies, reports, studies, financial plans, or data which has not been released or otherwise made available to the public, the Contractor agrees that without prior written approval of the Contracting Officer, it shall not: (a) use such information for any private purpose unless the information has been released or otherwise made available to the public, (b) compete for work, other than the LSI contract, based on such information after the completion of this contract, or until such information is released or otherwise made available to the public, whichever occurs first, (c)submit an unsolicited proposal to the Government which is based on such information after such information is released or otherwise made available to the public, or (d) release such information unless such information has previously been released or otherwise made available to the public by the Government.

(3) Access To and Protection of Proprietary Information: The Contractor agrees that, to the extent it receives or is given access to proprietary data, trade secrets, or other confidential or privileged technical, business, or financial information (hereinafter referred to as "proprietary data") under this contract, it shall treat such information in accordance with any restrictions imposed on such information. The Contractor further agrees to enter into a written agreement for the protection of the proprietary data of others and to exercise diligent effort to protect such proprietary data from unauthorized use or disclosure. In addition, the Contractor shall obtain from each employee who has access to proprietary data under this contract, a written agreement which shall in substance provide that such employee shall not, during his/her employment by the Contractor or thereafter, disclose to others or use for their benefit, proprietary data received in connection with the work under this contract. The Contractor will educate its employees regarding the philosophy of Part 9.505-4 of the Federal Acquisition Regulation so that they will not use or disclose proprietary information or data generated or acquired in the performance of this contract except as provided herein.

c. Subcontracts: The Contractor shall include this or substantially the same clause, including this paragraph, in consulting agreements and subcontracts of all tiers. The terms "Contract", "Contractor", and "Contracting Officer", will be appropriately modified to preserve the Government's rights.

d. Disclosures: If the Contractor discovers an organizational conflict of interest or potential conflict of interest after award, a prompt and full disclosure shall be made in writing to the Contracting Officer. This disclosure shall be made on the OCI Analysis/Disclosure Form provided at Attachment 3 to the contract, and shall include a description of the action the Contractor has taken or proposes to take in order to avoid or mitigate such conflicts.

e. Remedies and Waiver:

(1) For breach of any of the above restrictions or for non-disclosure or misrepresentation of any relevant facts required to be disclosed concerning this contract, the Government may terminate this contract for default, disqualify the Contractor for subsequent related contractual efforts, and pursue such other remedies as may be permitted by law or this contract. If, however, in compliance with this clause, the Contractor discovers and promptly reports an organizational conflict of interest (or the potential thereof) subsequent to contract award, the Contracting Officer may terminate this Contract for convenience if such termination is deemed to be in the best interest of the Government.

(2) The parties recognize that this clause has potential effects which will survive the performance of this contract and that it is impossible to foresee each circumstance to which it might be applied in the future. Accordingly, the Contractor may at any time seek a waiver from the Director, BMDO, (via the Contracting Officer) by submitting a full written description of the requested waiver and the reasons in support thereof.

a. Modifications: Prior to contract modification, when the SOO is changed to add new work or the period of performance is significantly increased, the Contracting Officer may require the Contractor to submit either an organizational conflict of interest disclosure or an update of the previously submitted disclosure or representation.

H-5 ENABLING CLAUSE FOR NMD INTERFACE SUPPORT

a. It is anticipated that, during the performance of this contract, the Contractor may be required to support meetings with other BMD Contractors and other Government agencies. Appropriate organizational conflict of interest agreements will be negotiated, by the Contractor, as needed to protect the rights of the Contractor and the Government.

b. The Contractor further agrees to include a clause in each subcontract requiring compliance with the provisions of paragraph a. above, subject to coordination with the prime Contractor. This agreement does not relieve the Contractor of its responsibility to manage its subcontracts effectively, nor is it intended to establish privity of contract between the Government and such subcontractors.

c. Personnel from BMD Contractors or other Government agencies or Contractors are not authorized to direct the Contractor in any manner.

d. This clause shall not prejudice the Contractor or its subcontractors from negotiating separate organizational conflict of interest agreements with BMD Contractors; however, these agreements shall not restrict any of the Government's rights established pursuant to this clause.

H-6 ASSOCIATE CONTRACTOR RELATIONSHIP

In performance of its responsibilities for the NMD program as described elsewhere in this contract, the "contractor" shall enter into agreements with any NMD element prime contractors and other contractors deemed appropriate to perform this contract to facilitate timely exchanges of information necessary to the performance of this contract. The agreements shall hold the Government harmless from liability for the unauthorized disclosure by the contractor of associate contractor proprietary information.

H-7 TECHNICAL INTERCHANGE MEETINGS (TIMs) AND IN PROCESS REVIEWS (IPRs)

a. Continued information exchange between the contractor and the Government is critical to the success of the LSI effort. During the CD Phase, the contractor shall participate in information exchanges as follows:

1. The contractor shall attend Technical Interchange Meetings (TIMs) to convey general, technical and management information relevant to the contract objectives. TIMs will include participating Government organizations, facilities, and element contractors. The Government will organize the TIMs.

2. The contractor shall hold one formal In Process Review (IPR) with the Government. The contractor shall present results of the ongoing development and report on contract performance at the IPR.

b. Current plans call for TIMs to take place in the Washington, D.C. area, Hill AFB UT, and Huntsville AL. These meetings will address program requirements, element status, and facilities and resources available to the LSI. An additional TIM will take place at a site visit to Grand Forks ND. All CD Phase contractors will attend all TIMs. The TIMs will occur during the first few weeks of the contract. The Government will organize and present the TIMs. The Government will allow one hour at the first TIM for each contractor to present competition sensitive data to the Government.

c. The Government expects each contractor to hold an IPR in the Washington area. Notional contents of the IPR are as follows:

(1) Overview of the Team

(2) Status of Effort

(3) Results of GBI Configuration Analysis

(4) Overview of NMD Planning

d. Contractors may present additional technical topics deemed relevant to the Government's understanding of their approach. The Government will provide a technical review at the conclusion of the IPR. This review will only address concerns with the technical material presented.

H-8 BMDO VISIT AUTHORIZATION PROCEDURES

a. The Contractor shall submit all required visit clearances in accordance with Defense Investigative Service Contractor Office regulations and will forward all visit requests, identifying the contract number, to:

Office of the Secretary of Defense

Ballistic Missile Defense Organization

7100 Defense Pentagon, BMDO/ACC

Washington, D.C. 20301-7100

Phone No.:(703)695-8048 FAX No.:(703)693-1526

b. The Contracting Officer's Technical Representative is authorized to approve visit requests for the Contracting Officer.

H-9 ALL ITEMS TO BECOME PROPERTY OF THE GOVERNMENT

Title to all source data and materials furnished by the Government shall remain with the Government upon completion of this contract. Title to all plans, systems analyses, reports and listings, and all other items pertaining to the work and services to be performed and delivered under this contract are considered to be "developed exclusively with government funds" as defined in DFARS 252.227-7013 (a)(8) for which the Government shall have "unlimited rights" as provided for in DFARS 252.227-7013(b)(1). The Government shall have the full right to use each of these for its purposes without compensation or approval on the part of the Contractor. The Government shall have access to and the right to make copies of the above mentioned items. However, nothing in this clause shall take precedence over the respective rights of

the Government or the Contractor under the Section I clause of this contract titled, "Rights in Technical Data - Noncommercial Items" (DFARS 252.227-7013).

H-10 COORDINATION WITH OTHER GOVERNMENT AGENCIES

In the performance of this contract, it may be necessary for the Contractor to visit Government agencies to discuss aspects of the work performed under this contract. The designated COTR(s) will approve visit requests and coordinate visits to Government activities in conjunction with this contract.

H-11 ABM TREATY COMPLIANCE

Compliance with the ABM Treaty will not be a criterion for evaluation of a bid on the Concept Definition (CD) contract or for the Lead System Integrator (LSI) contract award. If an NMD system is deployed, it may well require amendment of the ABM Treaty. Unless otherwise explicitly authorized, however, the development of the proposed NMD system must comply with all provisions of the ABM Treaty. An NMD system which if deployed would require amendment to the ABM Treaty can be developed in compliance with the ABM Treaty. Limitations on development include:

a. Field testing of any component (ABM interceptor missile, ABM radar, ABM launcher) must take place at declared ABM test ranges. Currently the Government has two declared ABM test ranges, White Sands Missile Range and Kwajelein Missile Range. Additional ranges may be declared under the ABM Treaty. In the event the CD Phase contractor's development plan (IMP) calls for additional ranges or modifications to existing ranges, specific requirements and justifications should be included in CDRL A007 and in the LSI Phase proposal.

b. ABM systems or components (ABM interceptor missiles, ABM radars, ABM launchers) which are sea-based, air-based, space-based, or mobile land based will not be field tested.

c. ABM launchers capable of launching more than one ABM interceptor missile at a time or having a rapid reload capability will not be field tested.

d. ABM interceptor missiles with more than one independently guided warhead will not be field tested.

e. Field testing must not give non-ABM missiles, launchers, or radars capabilities to counter strategic ballistic missiles or their elements in flight trajectory or test them in an ABM mode. Modifications to existing configurations of non-ABM missiles, launchers, or radars could make their use in NMD development treaty compliant.

Regarding booster options: the Government will conduct a treaty compliance review following receipt of the trade studies. The Contracting Officer will provide timely guidance to the CD Phase contractors prior to their submission of GBI recommendations.

Regarding upgrades to existing Early Warning Radars and forward based radars: the Government will conduct a treaty compliance review of the CD Phase contractor's draft test plans. If necessary, the Contracting Officer will provide timely guidance to CD Phase contractors prior to their submission of an LSI Phase program plan.

Treaty application and interpretation are governmental functions. As needed, the Government will provide treaty guidance supplementing the above throughout the execution of both the CD and the LSI contracts. CD Phase contractors will request treaty guidance in writing from the Contracting Officer. The Government will ensure that any substantive treaty guidance is provided to every CD Phase contractor without compromising the competition. The Government's goal is to assist every CD Phase contractor in proposing a treaty compliant development program.

H-12 CHANGES OF ADDRESS OR QUANTITIES FOR DATA SUBMISSIONS

From time to time the Government may make changes in office symbols, add or delete addressees, or change quantities of data items in the Contract Data Requirements List (CDRL). It is expressly agreed by the Government and the Contractor that all addressee changes shall be accomplished by administrative notice issued by the Contracting Officer at no change in the contract price. It is further agreed that all additions or deletions shall be accomplished by administrative notice issued by the Contracting Officer at no change in the contract price, provided that any increase(s) or decrease(s) in individual data items does not exceed the greater of fifty percent (50%) of the total quantity then called for in that data item or a quantity of two (2).

The awards for the CD Phase will be based on Proposal Number I, in which offerors must demonstrate: 1) the ability to perform the LSI Phase of the contract including evidence of relevant experience and past performance, and 2) an acceptable approach for performing the CD Phase effort. A subsequent single award will be made for the LSI Phase in which the contractor will perform as the NMD Lead System Integrator.

c. The competition for the LSI Phase will be based on the results of the CD Phase contract and on Proposal Number II. The award criteria for the LSI Phase will include the successful completion of the CD Phase requirements. Submission of the LSI Phase proposal is not a requirement of the CD Phase contract.

d. The LSI proposals will be requested from CD contractors by means of an RFP from the Contracting Officer, which is currently projected for 90 days after award of the CD Phase contracts. The RFP will specify the due date for proposals for the LSI Phase and provide all information for preparation of the LSI Phase proposals, including the final evaluation criteria and factors.

Affix a label identifying Offeror and RFP number and include a hard copy index sheet cross-referencing file names to the above listing. Submit the cost proposal in electronic format on a separate disk in accordance with the instructions in paragraph L-7.3.4

L-7.2.3 Proposal Format and Content

a. Paper. Use 8.5 by 11 inch paper, except as stated in paragraph b below. All information (except for document numbers, classification markings, proprietary legend, and page number) must fall within an image area of 7 by 9 inches.

b. Foldouts. Foldouts are limited to 11 by 17 inches. Each (or any portion of an) 8.5 by 11 inch equivalent page area printed on front or back of foldouts shall count as a page. Foldouts printed on one full side will count as two pages. All information (except for document numbers, classification markings, and page numbers) must fall within an image area of 9 by 15.5 inches. Foldout pages are allowed only for large tables, figures, charts, graphs, diagrams, and schematics. Pages of text on foldouts are not acceptable.

c. Margins. Use at least 1 inch margins on top and bottom and three-quarter inch (3/4") side margins. Margins at the side of the page near the binder will be sufficient to not impair legibility.

d. Page Count. Contractor may use both sides of paper. Page limitations are maximums, not goals. Each page with any printing or drawing on it will count toward the page limitations unless it is: a blank page, title page, table of contents, list of figures, list of tables, correlation matrix or cross-reference list, tab (tabs may not contain text or graphics), divider, acronym list, or glossary. Within the Technical/Management Volume, information may be cross-referenced instead of being presented twice. The Government will only read and evaluate proposals up to the page limitations. In the event any Offeror includes pages over the limitations, the extra pages will be removed and destroyed before proposals go to the evaluators.

e. Volumes. Use a single binder for each volume and each appendix. The only exceptions are for the Volumes IV and V if multiple binders are necessary and classified supplement(s) as described in paragraph I. below. Each volume should include a Table of Contents in the front and an acronym list at the back. To facilitate evaluation of proposals, offerors shall prepare a correlation matrix relating proposal content (volume and page number) to SOO paragraph number, CDRL, the Section M Evaluation Factors, and the Section L proposal preparation instructions.

f. Binding and Labeling. Use three ring binders with spines. Staples are not allowed. (For the Cost Proposal/Contract Documentation Volumes, do not bind the set submitted that has the original signatures on Standard Forms 33 and 1448.) If both sides of the page contain information, the bindings must permit the volume to lie flat when open. A cover sheet shall be a part of or applied to each binder, clearly marked as to volume number and title, copy number, RFP identification (RFP number and name of solicitation), date of submittal, and Offeror's name. As a minimum, the contractor shall place the volume number, title, copy number and Offeror's name on the spine of each binder. All unclassified volumes shall have a binder color other than red or bright orange.

g. Type. (Please note that the type settings do not apply to the Cost Proposal)

(1) Spacing. Use one and one-half line spacing (no more than 5 lines per inch).

(2) Size. Use elite type size or equivalent (not smaller than 10 point vertical character height and not more than 12 characters per inch). A proportionally spaced font is permissible if the printed character height is at least 12-point. Other than the exception for 12-point proportionally spaced fonts, typesetting or other techniques to reduce character size or spacing is not allowed and is considered a deliberate attempt to circumvent page limitations. Two column presentation and use of bold face type for paragraph headings are acceptable.

h. Illustrations and Tables. Legible tables, charts, and graphs may depict organizations and systems, and may be used for schedules, layouts, and plans. Text within figures must be legible and at least six points in height after final reduction. Text within figures may be single spaced. Figure titles must be at least 10 points in height, not more than 12 characters per inch, and all capital letters.

i. Classified Information. Where classified technical information is required, offerors shall provide a separate classified supplement for each volume, appendix, or attachment containing classified information. Each entry in the classified supplement shall reference the proposal volume, paragraph, and page number to which it applies. Similarly, the unclassified volume shall contain a reference to the classified insert, cross referencing the page and paragraph. Classified supplement(s) shall be packaged separately for each proposal volume. They shall have a red cover and shall conform to applicable security regulations and the requirements in DoD 5220.22-M, "National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual (NISPOM)." Pages in the classified supplement(s) will count toward total allowable page counts for any applicable volume, appendix, or attachment. Classified supplement(s) shall be submitted separately using appropriate procedures for safeguarding classified information. The submission times and dates for the unclassified portion of the proposal also apply to any classified supplement.

j. Written Presentation. Offerors may use any presentation form such as narrative, pictures, tables, graphs, drawings, schematics to describe proposal information. Elaborate documentation, detailed art work or other embellishments are unnecessary and not desired.

k. Cost and Pricing. Cost or pricing information or data shall only appear in the Cost Volume and, as necessary, in the Proposal/Contract Documentation Volume (but not in the Exhibits/Attachments to this Volume).

l. Information Concerning Subcontractors. The Offeror shall identify the allocation of work to specific subcontractors. Any information about the offeror's capability and experience is also required for all subcontractors.

m. Schedule Information. Schedule information throughout the Offeror's proposal must be consistent.

SECTION M - EVALUATION FACTORS FOR AWARD

M-1 EVALUATION SUMMARY

M-1.1 BASIS FOR CONTRACT AWARD

a. This is a competitive source selection using Air Force Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (AFFARS) Appendix AA, "Formal Source Selection Procedures For Major Acquisitions," as a general guideline. The Government will award to the Offeror(s):

(1) who is (are) deemed responsible in accordance with the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR);

(2) who possesses the past experience, management, past performance, technical, financial, and appropriate facility capabilities to fulfill the contract requirements;

(3) whose proposal conforms to solicitation requirements, and

(4) whose proposal is determined, after evaluation to be most advantageous to the Government, cost and other factors considered.

b. The Government intends to select up to three contractors for this acquisition. However, the Government reserves the right to award two contracts, one contract, or no contract at all, depending on the quality of the proposal(s) submitted and the availability of funds.

c. Section L of the RFP provides specific proposal instructions and data requirements from each Offeror.

M-1.2 GENERAL CONSIDERATIONS FOR AWARD

In addition to evaluation of each Offeror=s proposal against criteria specified below, the Government will consider:

a. Each Offeror's adherence to terms and conditions set forth in Part I, The Schedule, and Part II, Contract Clauses of the model contract.

b. Each Offeror's avoidance or mitigation of Organizational Conflicts of Interest (OCI).

c. Each Offeror's possession of, or ability to obtain, a Top Secret facility clearance.

d. Each Offeror's commitment to award subcontracts to small disadvantaged businesses, small businesses, woman-owned businesses, historically black colleges and universities, and minority institutions as evidenced by the Offeror=s Subcontracting Plan.

M-2 EVALUATION OF PROPOSALS

M-2.1 Proposals submitted in response to this solicitation will be evaluated in accordance with the criteria set forth in this section. The proposals will be evaluated in three areas: Technical, Cost and Past Performance. Each area is separately described below in greater detail. The factors within the Technical area will be reviewed, evaluated, and rated by evaluators who will use a color coded narrative evaluation system to rate proposals and an adjectival narrative system to rate proposal risk. Past Performance will also be rated on an adjectival narrative basis. Cost will be evaluated in a narrative manner. Complementary to these evaluations, significant deficiencies identified in the factors to be evaluated may be used as a basis for eliminating a proposal from further consideration. The objective of the evaluation is to determine which proposals offer the best prospect for accomplishing the Government's requirement and optimum attainment of the objectives of the program, cost and other factors considered.

M-2.2 The Technical area is significantly more important than either Cost or Past Performance, which are of equal importance. A deficiency in any of the three areas could constitute a basis for rejection of a proposal. Award will be made to the Offeror(s) whose proposal represents the best overall value for the Government. The Government reserves the right to award to other than the low Offeror.

M-2.3 Offerors are reminded that unsupported promises to comply with the contractual requirements will not be sufficient. Proposals must not merely parrot back the contractual specifications but rather must provide convincing documentary evidence in support of any conclusionary statements relating to promised performance. Offerors are urged to insure that their proposal is submitted on the most favorable terms in order to reflect their best possible potential, since less than their best potential could result in exclusion of the proposal from further consideration and since the Government reserves the right to make an award without discussions based upon initial proposals received. The Offeror's proposal is presumed to represent his best efforts to respond to the solicitation. Any inconsistency, whether real or apparent, between promised performance, manpower or cost should be explained in the proposal.

M-2.4 The color rating to be used for evaluation of the factors within the Technical area depicts the extent to which the Offeror's proposal meets the evaluation standards and solicitation requirements as follows:

Color Definition

Blue Exceeds specified performance or capability in a beneficial way to BMDO and has no significant weakness.

Green Meets evaluation standards and any weaknesses are readily correctable.

Yellow Fails to meet evaluation standards; however, any significant deficiencies are correctable.

Red Fails to meet a minimum requirement of the RFP and the deficiency is uncorrectable without a major revision of the proposal.

M-2.5 Proposal risk adjectival rating system to be used for evaluation of the Technical area relates to the identification and assessment of the risks associated with an Offeror's proposed approach as it relates to accomplishing the solicitation requirements pursuant to the following definitions:
High Likely to cause significant, serious disruption of schedule, increase in cost, or degradation of performance even with special contractor emphasis and close Government monitoring.
Moderate Can potentially cause some disruption of schedule, increase in cost, or degradation of performance. However, special contractor emphasis and close Government monitoring will probably be able to overcome difficulties.
Low Has little potential to cause disruption of schedule, increase in cost, or degradation of performance. Normal contractor effort and normal Government monitoring will probably be able to overcome difficulties.

M-2.6 Performance risk adjectival rating system to be used for evaluation of Past Performance relates to the assessment of an Offeror's present and past work record to ascertain confidence in the Offeror's ability to successfully perform as proposed. The Government will assess performance risk in the Past Performance area using the following definitions:

High Significant doubt exists, based on the Offeror's experience or performance record, that the Offeror can perform the proposed effort.

Moderate Some doubt exists, based on the Offeror's experience or performance record, that the Offeror can perform the proposed effort.

Low Little doubt exists, based on the Offeror=s experience or performance record, that the Offeror can perform the proposed effort.

M-3 TECHNICAL FACTORS AND THEIR RELATIVE WEIGHTS

M-3.1 TECHNICAL FACTORS

The Technical area will be divided into four factors: (T-1) Corporate Experience; (T-2) Management: Teaming/Staffing; (T-3) Approach to Plan NMD System Integration; and (T-4) Approach to Assess and Plan GBI Alternatives. The importance of Factor T-1 is greater than Factor T-2, which is significantly greater than Factor T-3, which is slightly greater than Factor T-4.

Factor T-1: Corporate Experience

Relevant corporate experience will be determined based on the Offeror's demonstration that the Offeror and its subcontractors have, individually or collectively, the necessary capabilities and infrastructure (e.g., facilities, processes), and have performed major systems contracts similar to the effort described in the SOO.

Factor T-2: Management: Teaming/Staffing

Proposals will be evaluated to determine the adequacy of the Offeror's management approach including the Offeror's Teaming/Staffing. The contractor's management approach must document:

- the system program management requirements and approaches required by the NMD System, including integration of/interaction with the Elements,

- an integrated and complete team structured for continuity of skills and knowledge to adequately perform the LSI mission, if selected,

- a management plan that is integrated across the team and documents how it will provide adequate personnel for the CD and LSI Phases,

- how the plan/approach adheres to sound management practices (i.e., planning, staffing, budgeting, etc.),

- how the approach is realistic and achievable through an executable path for the NMD System program.

The personnel experience matrix and resumes submitted by the Offeror will be evaluated to determine the level of relevant experience of the offeror's team and key personnel in performing similar programs.

Factor T-3: Approach to Plan NMD System Integration

The Government will evaluate the Offeror's documented understanding of the scope of the NMD program. The proposal should clearly delineate how the deliverables and accompanying schedule will be accomplished in order to generate an Integrated Master Plan (IMP) and Integrated Master Schedule (IMS) during the contract.

Factor T-4: Approach to Assess and Plan GBI Alternatives

The Government will evaluate the Offeror's technical approach to defining the Ground Based Interceptor (GBI) Alternative Evaluation and GBI Alternative Recommendation for GBI alternatives during the various LSI periods described in the SOO.

M-3.2 PAST PERFORMANCE AREA

The Government will evaluate the past performance of the Offeror (including subcontractors). Past performance includes demonstrated ability to meet contract:

- cost,

- performance,

- technical requirements,

- quality,

- schedule,

- customer satisfaction.

Contractor performance evaluation may include comments on the ability to:

- anticipate problems,

- develop appropriate alternatives to avoid or mitigate program impacts,

- demonstrate incorporation of any lessons learned from past performance.

Offerors are to note that, in evaluating past performance, the Government will use data provided by the Offeror, responses to past performance questionnaires, as well as other performance information obtained by the Government from Government and other sources.

M-3.3 COST AREA

The cost evaluation will determine whether an Offeror's proposed costs are realistic and complete in relation to the solicitation and proposal Volumes I and II, and determine the reasonableness of the proposed costs/price.

a. Realism will be evaluated by assessing the compatibility of proposed costs with proposed scope and effort. Evaluation of cost realism will be made without regard to the Government's anticipated contract value stated in Section L-7.3.4.

b. Completeness will be evaluated by assessing the level of cost detail the Offeror provides in response to RFP instructions and requirements in the statement of objectives, and by assessing the traceability of estimates.

c. Reasonableness will be evaluated through cost and price analysis techniques to ensure that the awarded contracts represents the best value to the Government; and to determine the Offeror's understanding of the work and ability to perform the contract. Reasonableness will also be evaluated by assessing the acceptability of the Offeror's methodology used in developing the estimate. The evaluation may apply an equivalent rental factor for any use of Government production and research property that would otherwise impact the comparability of proposals.

d. The Government has established that successful offerors will be awarded contracts at a firm-fixed-price of $8 million each. Offerors will not obtain an improved price/cost evaluation by proposing a contract price less than $8 million. Offerors will not gain an advantage nor be penalized if their cost proposals total more than $8 million so long as they acknowledge and stipulate that they will accept the Government established contract price in full payment for work completed and accepted, and that any costs incurred in excess of the contract price will be borne by the Offeror and not charged to the Government on this or any other contract. The Government reserves the right to impute proposal and/or performance risk on any cost proposals (including those that are substantially higher or lower than the established contract price of $8 million) if the proposed costs are determined to be unrealistic, excessive, or otherwise unreasonable.
