As prescribed in 12.301(c), the Contracting Officer may insert a provision substantially as follows:
Evaluation—Commercial Items (Oct 2014)
(a) The Government will award a contract resulting from this solicitation to the responsible offeror whose offer conforming to the solicitation will be most advantageous to the Government, price and other factors considered.
The following factors shall be used to evaluate quotes:
Technical and Past Performance
Technical and past performance, when combined, are less important than price. The Contracting Officer will evaluate the lowest priced quote first. If the Offeror is determined eligible for award and found responsive and responsible, the Contracting Officer will determine if the quote meets the subsequent minimum requirements. If the quote meets the subsequent minimum requirements and the offered price is within budget then the Contracting Officer will make an award to that Offeror and cease evaluations. If the Offeror is not determined eligible for award or not found responsive and responsible then the Contracting Officer will evaluate the second lowest priced quote. This process will continue until the Contracting Officer can make an award.
Technical acceptability will be determined if the quote offers the model Opticon OPN2001-00. No other makes or models, including newer versions, shall be considered or accepted.
In accordance with FAR 52.204-7, the awardee shall be registered in the system for award management (www.sam.gov) prior to award. Refusal to register shall forfeit award.
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.

The Department of Justice is committed to doing business in the most efficient and effective way possible, and to facilitate paperless processes. In furtherance of this goal, the Contracting Officer may apply their digital signature to procurement documents in the Portable Document Format (PDF) through the use of their government issued Personal Identity Verification (PIV) Card with a valid public key certificate. A digital signature made with these certificates is evidence that a specific individual signed the electronic record and that it was not altered. The recipient of a signed document can rely on the digital signature as evidence for a third party that the signature was generated by the claimed signer.
For procurement documents that require a signature from a representative of the Contractor, the Contractor may utilize manual or electronic signature. Should the Contractor utilize an electronic signature, by returning the document with an electronic symbol affixed to the appropriate signature block, the Contractor representative signing on behalf of the Contractor certifies that:
Electronic Form of Signature: The Contractor representative has knowingly adopted, applied or affixed an electronic symbol to the document;
Intent to Sign: The Contractor representative has applied an electronic symbol with the intent to legally bind the Contractor;
Association of Signature to Record: the Contractor representative’s signature is attached to the electronic record being signed;
Identification and Authentication of Signer: The Contractor has a means to identify and authenticate a particular person as the signer; and
Integrity of Signed Record: The Contractor can attest to the integrity of the signed record between the time of signature and the returned record to the government.
This clause applies to this document and any subsequent documents (e.g., modifications, task/delivery orders) associated with this action.
