Basis for Award. The Government will evaluate quotes in response to this solicitation without discussions and will award a contract to the responsible quoter whose quote, conforming to the solicitation, will be most advantageous to the Government, lowest price technically acceptable.

The Government may reject a quote if the prices quoted are materially unbalanced between line items or subline items. Unbalanced pricing exists when, despite an acceptable total evaluated price, the price of one or more contract line items is significantly over or understated as indicated by the application of cost or price analysis techniques.  Unbalanced pricing may increase performance risk and could result in payment of unreasonably high prices.  A bid is materially unbalanced when it is based on prices significantly less than cost for some work and prices which are significantly overstated in relation to cost for other work, and if there is a reasonable doubt that the bid will result in the lowest overall cost to the Government even though it may be the low evaluated quote, or if it is so unbalanced as to be tantamount to allowing an advance payment.  Potential unbalanced pricing will be evaluated consistent with FAR 15.404-1(g).

The Government may reject a quote if the prices quoted are unrealistically low.  Price/cost realism analysis is the process of independently reviewing and evaluating specific elements of each quoter’s proposed price to determine whether the estimated prices are realistic for the work to be performed; reflect a clear understanding of the requirements.  Quotes that are determined to be unrealistically low are considered a performance risk and may be rejected by the Government.  Price/cost realism analysis will be evaluated consistent with FAR 15.404-1(d).
