subcontract from one for a commercial item to one for a non-commercial item;

(B) For commercial items, you may provide information on selling prices of the same
item or similar items in the commercial market; and

(viii) Any other information the CO requests to support your request for an exception or to
conclude that your price is fair and reasonable.

(b) You give the CO the right to examine books, records, documents, or other directly pertinent records to
verify your request for an exception under this clause or the reasonableness of price at any time before

(End of clause)

3.3.1-33 SYSTEM FOR AWARD MANAGEMENT (OCT 2016)

(a) Definitions. As used in this clause

"Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number" means the 9-digit number assigned by Dun and Bradstreet,
Inc. (D&B) to identify unique business entities.

"Data Universal Numbering System +4 (DUNS+4) number" means the DUNS number assigned by D&B plus a 4-
character suffix that may be assigned by a business concern. (D&B has no affiliation with this 4-character suffix.)
This 4-character suffix may be assigned at the discretion of the business concern to establish additional SAM
records for identifying alternative Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) accounts for the same parent concern.

"Registered in the SAM database" means that the Contractor has entered all mandatory information, including the
DUNS number or the DUNS+4 number, into the SAM database.

"System for Award Management (SAM) Database" means the primary Government repository for Contractor
information required for the conduct of business with the Government.

Page 16
(b)(1) By submission of an offer, the offeror acknowledges the requirement that a prospective awardee shall be
registered in the SAM database prior to award, during performance, and through final payment of any contract, basic
agreement, basic ordering agreement, or blanket purchasing agreement resulting from this solicitation.

(2) The offeror shall enter, in Representations, Certifications and Other Statements of Offerors Section of the
solicitation, the DUNS or DUNS +4 number that identifies the offeror's name and address exactly as stated in the
offer. The DUNS number will be used by the Contracting Officer to verify that the offeror is registered in the SAM
database.

(c) If the offeror does not have a DUNS number, it should contact Dun and Bradstreet directly to obtain one.

(1) An offeror may obtain a DUNS number


(i) If located within the United States, by calling Dun and Bradstreet at 1-866-705-5711 or via the Internet at
http://fedgov.dnb.com/webform; or
(ii) If located outside the United States, by contacting the local Dun and Bradstreet office.

(2) The offeror should be prepared to provide the following information:


(i) Company legal business.
(ii) Tradestyle, doing business, or other name by which your entity is commonly recognized.
(iii) Company Physical Street Address, City, State, and ZIP Code.
(iv) Company Mailing Address, City, State and ZIP Code (if different from physical street address).
(v) Company Telephone Number.
(vi) Date the company was started.
(vii) Number of employees at your location.
(viii) Chief executive officer/key manager.
(ix) Line of business (industry).
(x) Company Headquarters name and address (reporting relationship within your entity).

(d) If the offeror does not become registered in the SAM database in the time prescribed by the Contracting Officer,
the Contracting Officer may proceed to award to the next otherwise successful registered offeror.

(e) Processing time, which normally takes 48 hours, should be taken into consideration when registering. Offerors
who are not registered should consider applying for registration immediately upon receipt of this solicitation.

(f) The Contractor is responsible for the accuracy and completeness of the data within the SAM database, and for
any liability resulting from the Government's reliance on inaccurate or incomplete data. To remain registered in the
SAM database after the initial registration, the Contractor is required to review and update on an annual basis from
the date of initial registration or subsequent updates its information in the SAM database to ensure it is current,
accurate and complete. Updating information in the SAM does not alter the terms and conditions of this contract and
is not a substitute for a properly executed contractual document. If registered in SAM as a Service-Disabled
Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB), by submission of an offer, the offeror acknowledges that they are
designated as a SDVOSB by the Department of Veterans Affairs, and this designation appears as such on the
Veteran Affairs website, https://www.vip.vetbiz.gov.

(g)(1)(i) If a Contractor has legally changed its business name, "doing business as" name, or division name
(whichever is shown on the contract), or has transferred the assets used in performing the contract, but has not
completed the necessary requirements regarding novation and change-of-name agreements in AMS Procurement
Guidance, the Contractor shall provide the responsible Contracting Officer a minimum of one business day's written
notification of its intention to:

(A) change the name in the SAM database;


(B) comply with the requirements of AMS regarding novation and change-of-name agreements; and
(C) agree in writing to the timeline and procedures specified by the responsible Contracting Officer. The Contractor

Page 17
must provide the Contracting Officer with the notification, sufficient documentation to support the legally changed
name.

(ii) If the Contractor fails to comply with the requirements of paragraph (g)(1)(i) of this clause, or fails to perform
the agreement at paragraph (g)(1)(i)(C) of this clause, and, in the absence of a properly executed novation or
change-of-name agreement, the SAM information that shows the Contractor to be other than the Contractor
indicated in the contract will be considered to be incorrect information within the meaning of the "Suspension of
Payment" paragraph of the electronic funds transfer (EFT) clause of this contract.

(2) The Contractor shall not change the name or address for EFT payments or manual payments, as appropriate, in
the SAM record to reflect an assignee for the purpose of assignment of claims. Assignees shall be separately
registered in the SAM database. Information provided to the Contractor's SAM record that indicates payments,
including those made by EFT, to an ultimate recipient other than that Contractor will be considered to be incorrect
information within the meaning of the "Suspension of payment" paragraph of the EFT clause of this contract.

(h) Offerors and Contractors may obtain information on registration and annual confirmation requirements via the
internet at http://www.sam.gov.

(End of Clause)

3.2.2.7-7 CERTIFICATION REGARDING RESPONSIBILITY MATTERS (JAN 2018)

Page 22
(a)(1) The Offeror certifies, to the best of its knowledge and belief, that

(i) All representations and certifications as reflected in the System for Award Management (SAM) are current and
accurate as of the date the proposal/offer is submitted. The offeror must provide immediate written notice to the
Contracting Officer if at any time prior to award the Offeror and/or any of its Principals learns that any certification
or representation in SAM was erroneous when this proposal/offer was submitted or has become erroneous by reason
of changed circumstances. If registered in SAM as a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB),
by submission of an offer, the offeror acknowledges that they are designated as a SDVOSB by the Department of
Veterans Affairs, and this designation appears as such on the Veteran Affairs website, https://www.vip.vetbiz.gov.

(ii) The Offeror and/or any of its Principals-

(A) Are [ ] are not [ ] presently debarred, suspended, proposed for debarment, or declared ineligible for the award of
contracts by any Federal agency;
(B) Have [ ] have not [ ] within a three-year period preceding this offer, been convicted of or had a civil judgment
rendered against them for: commission of fraud or a criminal offense in connection with obtaining, attempting to
obtain, or performing a public-
(Federal, state, or local) contract or subcontract; violation of Federal or state antitrust statutes relating to the
submission of offers; or commission of embezzlement, theft, forgery, bribery, falsification or destruction of records,
making false statements, tax evasion, violating Federal criminal tax laws or receiving stolen property; and
(C) Are [ ] are not [ ] presently indicted for, or otherwise criminally or civilly charged by a governmental entity
with, commission of any of the offenses enumerated in subdivision (a)(1) (ii)(B) of this provision.
(D) Have [ ], have not [ ], within a three-year period preceding this offer, been notified of any delinquent Federal
taxes in an amount that exceeds $3,000 for which the liability remains unsatisfied.

(1) Federal taxes are considered delinquent if both of the following criteria apply:

(i) The tax liability is finally determined. The liability is finally determined if it has been assessed. A liability is not
finally determined if there is a pending administrative or judicial challenge. In the case of a judicial challenge to the
liability, the liability is not finally determined until all judicial appeal rights have been exhausted.
(ii) The taxpayer is delinquent in making payment. A taxpayer is delinquent if the taxpayer has failed to pay the tax
liability when full payment was due and required. A taxpayer is not delinquent in cases where enforced collection
action is precluded.

(2) Examples-

(i) The taxpayer has received a statutory notice of deficiency, under I.R.C. Sec. 6212, which entitles the taxpayer to
seek Tax Court review of a proposed tax deficiency. This is not a delinquent tax because it is not a final tax liability.
Should the taxpayer seek Tax Court review, this will not be a final tax liability until the taxpayer has exercised all
judicial appeal rights.
(ii) The IRS has filed a notice of Federal tax lien with respect to an assessed tax liability, and the taxpayer has been
issued a notice under I.R.C. Sec. 6320 entitling the taxpayer to request a hearing with the IRS Office of Appeals
contesting the lien filing, and to further appeal to the Tax Court if the IRS determines to sustain the lien filing. In the
course of the hearing, the taxpayer is entitled to contest the underlying tax liability because the taxpayer has had no
prior opportunity to contest the liability. This is not a delinquent tax because it is not a final tax liability. Should the
taxpayer seek tax court review, this will not be a final tax liability until the taxpayer has exercised all judicial appeal
rights.
(iii) The taxpayer has entered into an installment agreement pursuant to I.R.C. Sec. 6159. The taxpayer is making
timely payments and is in full compliance with the agreement terms. The taxpayer is not delinquent because the
taxpayer is not currently required to make full payment.
(iv) The taxpayer has filed for bankruptcy protection. The taxpayer is not delinquent because enforced collection
action is stayed under 11 U.S.C. 362 (the Bankruptcy Code).

Page 23
(E) The Offeror has [ ] has not [ ] within a three-year period preceding this offer, had one or more contracts
terminated for default by any Federal agency.

(2) 'Principals,' for the purposes of this certification, means officers; directors; owners; partners; and, persons having
primary management or supervisory responsibilities within a business entity (e.g., general manager; plant manager;
head of a subsidiary, division, or business segment, and similar positions). THIS CERTIFICATION CONCERNS A
MATTER WITHIN THE JURISDICTION OF AN AGENCY OF THE UNITED STATES AND THE MAKING
OF A FALSE, FICTITIOUS, OR FRAUDULENT CERTIFICATION MAY RENDER THE MAKER SUBJECT
TO PROSECUTION UNDER SECTION 1001, TITLE 18, UNITED STATES CODE.

(b) The Offeror must provide immediate written notice to the Contracting Officer if, at any time prior to contract
award, the Offeror learns that its certification was erroneous when submitted or has become erroneous by reason of
changed circumstances.

(c) A certification that any of the items in paragraph (a) of this provision exists will not necessarily result in
withholding of an award under this SIR. However, the certification will be considered in connection with a
determination of the Offeror's responsibility. Failure of the Offeror to furnish a certification or provide such
additional information as requested by the Contracting Officer may render the Offeror nonresponsible.

(d) Nothing contained in the foregoing must be construed to require establishment of a system of records in order to
render, in good faith, the certification required by paragraph (a) of this provision. The knowledge and information of
an Offeror is not required to exceed that which is normally possessed by a prudent person in the ordinary course of
business dealings.

(e) The certification in paragraph (a) of this provision is a material representation of fact upon which reliance was
placed when making award. If it is later determined that the Offeror knowingly rendered an erroneous certification,
in addition to other remedies available to the Government, the Contracting Officer may terminate the contract
resulting from this SIR for default.

(End of provision)

Section M - Evaluation Factors for Award
Clause List

M.1 Evaluation Factors for Award

(a) This acquisition will employ best practices procedures for competitive negotiated procurements as
authorized by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Acquisition Management System (AMS).

Offers will be evaluated and contract award made to the Offeror whose proposal contains the combination of those
criteria offering the best overall value to the FAA. All evaluation factors other than cost/price, when combined,
are slightly more important than price/cost. The Government will not make an award at a significantly higher
overall cost/price to achieve slightly superior technical qualifications.

Contract award will be made to the Offeror who is determined responsible in accordance with the Acquisition
Management System (AMS), whose proposal conforms to the solicitation's requirements (to include all stated terms,
conditions, representation, and certifications) and is concluded, based on the evaluation factors, to represent the best
value to the Government.

A technical/price tradeoff may be made. The lowest total evaluated priced offer may not provide the greatest overall
value to the Government and award may be made to other than the lowest total evaluated priced offer. Technical
considerations are slightly more important than cost/price. The relative importance of cost will increase as the
differences in technical scores decrease.

Best value determination will be based on the following:

 Technical Evaluation
 Cost/Price Evaluation

To arrive at a best value decision, the Source Selection Official (SSO) will integrate the Technical Evaluation
Team's evaluation of the specific criteria described above. While the Government Technical Evaluation Team
(TET) and the Source Selection Official (SSO) will strive for maximum objectivity, the Source Selection process, by
its nature, is subjective and, therefore, professional judgment is implicit throughout the entire process. The
Government reserves the right to award without discusses. Therefore, each initial offer should contain the Offeror's
best terms from a technical and cost/price standpoint. However, the Government reserves the right to conduct
discussions if determined by the Contracting Officer (CO) to be necessary. All communications are to be controlled
by the CO. Discussions may be conducted with one, some, or none of the offerors. Discussion with one offeror
does not oblige discussions with other offerors.

(b) Proposals may be eliminated if they are determined to be grossly deficient; e.g., does not comply with or
represent a reasonable effort to address itself to all elements of the SIR/RFO; or clearly demonstrates that the
Offeror does not understand the requirements of the SIR/RFO; and the proposed cost/price are not considered
reasonable.

(c) Each proposal will be evaluated on the basis of its written submissions and cost/price information described
in Section L (hereafter referred to as technical and cost/price proposals). Separate technical and cost/price
proposals are required as described in Section L.

(d) Technical proposals will be evaluated, rated, and scored in accordance with pre-established evaluation
factors. These factors are listed in Provision M.3.

(e) Cost/price submittals will not be rated or scored but evaluated pursuant to Provision M.4.

(f) The offer that provides the overall best value to the FAA will be selected. The successful offer may not

Page 38
necessarily be the lowest priced offer. Again, technical considerations are slightly more important than
cost/price. The relative importance of cost will increase as the differences in technical scores decrease.

(g) Because several proposals are anticipated, uniformity of proposals is essential to assure a fair and accurate
assessment of each offer. All proposals must be submitted in accordance with Section L and must conform to all
the terms and conditions of the SIR/RFO. Failure to conform to all requirements expressed may be cause for
rejection without further evaluation or discussion.

(h) Additional information may be requested from the Offeror whose proposal the FAA considers to represent
the overall best value. The information may clarify or supplement, but not basically change the proposal as
submitted. The FAA reserves the right to award a contract based on initial offers received, without discussions or
negotiations. For this reason, each initial offer should be submitted on the most favorable terms from the
standpoint of technical and price/cost.

M.2 Technical Evaluation Rating Scale

(a) Factor 1: Phase One Technical Evaluation: Offerors will be rated on a GO/NO GO rating scale.

(b) Factor 2: Phase Two Best Value Determination: Offeror's proposal will be reviewed against
the table outlined in M.3 based on the numerical scale corresponding to a 5-point (5.0, 4.0, 3.0, 2.0,
and 1.0).

(c) Factor 3(a): Past Performance Information: Offerors will be rated on a GO/NO GO rating scale.

(d) Factor 3(b): Past Performance Surveys: Offerors will be rated on a GO/NO GO rating scale.

M.3 Technical Evaluation

(a) Selection of contractors for award will be based on evaluation of price and technical proposals.
Technical proposals will be evaluated according to the factors listed below. Technical evaluation
factors as listed below are intended to determine the offeror's capabilities to effectively and efficiently
accomplish the performance of the contract.

(1) Factor 1 - Phase One - Technical Evaluation: Each Offeror must provide a detailed narrative
with respect to its proposed responses with supporting documentation to substantiate its proposed
TAGARS solution. Experience with civilian aviation simulation offered must have a minimal depth
of three (3) years of experience within the last 7 years directly related to the requirements numerated
in the SOW. The narrative must provide sufficient information for the government to assess the
Offeror's understanding and experience of the government requirement. The offeror must provide
substantial and reliable information such as pictures, materials, brands, drawings, etc... to ensure
compliance by the government. The Offeror "must' meet all the factors outlined in Section J,
Attachment 3: Phase One Technical Evaluation SOW "Musts" Checklist.

Evaluation: Offerors must receive a "GO" rating for each category in Section J, Attachment 3:
Phase One Technical Evaluation SOW "Musts" Checklist to receive an overall "GO" rating for
this factor. Failure to receive a "GO" rating for any category listed in the Attachment 3: Phase
One Technical Evaluation SOW "Musts" Checklist will result in an overall "NO GO" rating and
elimination from further consideration for contract award. Only the Offerors who receive a "GO"
rating for Factor 1 will be considered for Factors 2 and 3.

(2) Factor 2 - Phase Two: Best Value Determination: Each Offeror must provide a detailed
narrative with respect to its proposed responses with supporting documentation to substantiate
its proposed TAGARS solution for those items associated with its proposed best value submission.
The narrative must provide sufficient information for the government to assess the Offeror's
understanding and experience of the government requirement. The Offeror must provide
substantial and reliable information such as pictures, materials, brands, drawings, etc...to ensure

Page 39
compliance by the government.

Evaluation Offerors must demonstrate a full and complete detailed proposal with supporting
information sufficient to establish scoring in accordance with the table below. Failure to submit
documentation that sufficiently allows the Government to clearly understand the components to
its TAGARS solution may eliminate or severally reduce an offerors numerical score based on the
Offeror's solution proposed.

(3) Factor 3(a) Past Performance Information Each Offeror shall complete a
minimum of two (2), but no more than four (4) "Past Performance Experience Information"
forms, attached to the SIR (Section J, Attachment 4) in response to this factor. All blocks must
be filled in and all data should be accurate, current, and complete. All projects submitted must
have been underway or completed within the last 7 years through the closing date identified on
the SIR. Each project provided must be valued at or over $1,000,000.

Evaluation: Offerors must meet all of the following minimum acceptability standards to receive
a "GO" on this factor:

 Offeror must have two (2) projects that are same/similar to that of the work required in the SOW and this
solicitation; AND
 Each project submitted must be valued at or over $1,000.000; AND
 Projects submitted must have been completed, or underway, within the last 7 years through the closing date
of the SIR.

Page 41
Failure to demonstrate the minimally acceptability standards under this factor will result in a
"NO GO" rating and possible elimination from further consideration for contract award.

(4) Factor 3(b) Past Performance Surveys Each Offeror shall have current or past
customers complete the Past Performance Survey (PPS) attached to the SIR (Section J,
Attachment 5). A minimum of two (2) but no more than four (4) completed PPS's shall be
submitted directly from the offeror's customer to the Contracting Officer no later than the SIR
closing date. All PPS submitted must show that projects are underway or completed within the
last 7 years through the closing date identified on the SIR. The Offeror's Past Performance must
demonstrate/possess relevant past performance for projects (or greater than) the complexity or .
breadth of the technically advanced general aviation research simulator.

The Offeror's ability to meet contract obligations in a timely manner is an area of particular
importance. A proposal should demonstrate acceptable past performance on projects of same
or similar scope, complexity and magnitude as the technically advanced general aviation
research simulator.

Each PPS submitted shall be for work that is valued at or over $1,000.000.

The Offeror shall also submit a list of two (2) but no more than four (4) Past Performance
POC's with their proposal that:

 Are knowledgeable of the firm's past performance; AND


 Are willing to be interviewed by the Government using the PPS; AND
 Include the POC's name, agency, phone number, and email address

Evaluation: Offerors must demonstrate the following minimum acceptability standards


to receive a "GO" rating on this factor:

 Each PPS submitted is for work that is valued at or over $1,000,000; AND
 Each PPS submitted must have received a response of "Acceptable" in all areas; AND
 All PPS submitted must show the projects are underway or completed within the last 7 years through the
closing date identified on the SIR; AND
 All past or current references must recommend awarding similar contracts or using the offeror again for
future work and reflect positive performance of the work requirements.

Failure to demonstrate the minimally acceptable criteria under this factor will result in a
"NO GO" rating and possible elimination from further consideration for contract award.
Offerors with no past performance information will receive a "NO GO" rating for this
factor.

The FAA will not be held responsible for those Offeror's customers who refuse to respond
or provide past performance information. If the Contracting Officer fails to receive any
completed forms for an offeror, the FAA will attempt to follow up with the customers once,
in order to retrieve the information. After this attempt, any PPS not submitted and received
by the due date/time will not be considered.

M.4 Evaluation of Price

Offerors may provide supporting pricing documentation that supports fair and reasonable, balanced pricing.
Reasonableness must represent a price to the Government consistent with how a prudent person would pay in the
conduct of competitive business. Normally, price reasonableness is established through adequate price competition,
but may also be determined through price analysis techniques as described in AMS Toolbox T3.2.3.A.1C.

Page 42
Offerors are cautioned that unreasonable prices may be grounds for eliminating a proposal from the competition
based upon an apparent lack of understanding of the requirement. Proposals (whether initial or revised submissions)
which are unreasonably low may be eliminated from further competition on the grounds of the offeror's failure to
comprehend contract requirements.

Offerors are cautioned to propose pricing for all Contract Line Items (CLIN) as omission of any required pricing
information constitutes incomplete pricing and therefore, unreasonable pricing.

Offeror's proposals will be reviewed for unbalanced pricing. An offer is mathematically unbalanced if it is based on
prices which are significantly less than the cost of some contract line items and significantly overstated in relate to
cost for others. An offer is materially unbalanced if it is mathematically unbalanced and if there is reasonable doubt
that the offer would result in the lowest overall cost to the Government (even though it may be the lowest
evaluated offer); or the offer is so grossly unbalanced that its acceptance would be tantamount to allowing an
advance payment. Offers that are materially unbalanced may be rejected. Price and/or cost analysis techniques will
be used in determining whether offers are materially unbalanced.

In accordance with AMS 3.2.3.2, cost or pricing data may be required to support price reasonableness. AMS 3.2.3.2
provides for obtaining cost or pricing data under certain circumstances and the Government reserves the right to
obtain such data as appropriate. Should the Contracting Officer determine proposed prices appear unreasonable or
the possibility than an Offeror does not fully understand the requirement, the Offerors may be required to support
price reasonableness via cost or pricing data. Should this occur, the opportunity be provided during discussions.

Contract Line Items (CLINs) 0001 and 0002 will be totaled to derive the final proposal cost.

M.5 Best Value Determination

(a) The offer that provides the greatest overall value to the FAA will be selected for award. A technical/price
tradeoff may be made. Technical factors shall be slightly more important than cost/price. The lowest total
evaluated priced offer may not provide the greatest overall value to the Government. Best value will be based
on the following:

- Technical Evaluation
- Cost/Price Evaluation

(b) To arrive at a best value decision, the Technical Evaluation Team and Source Selection Official (SSO) will
integrate the source selection team's evaluation of the specific criteria described above. While the FAA source
selection evaluation team and the SSO will strive for maximum objectivity, the source selection process, by
nature, is subjective and professional judgment is implicit throughout the entire process.

M.6 Correction Potential of Proposals

The Government will consider throughout the evaluation, the "correction potential" of any proposal aspect evaluated
as "unacceptable". The judgment of such "correction potential" is within the sole discretion of the Government. If
an aspect of an Offeror's proposal not meeting the Government's requirements is not considered correctable or if the
amount of corrections needed to meet the Government requirement is impractical, the Offeror may be eliminated
from the competition.

M.7 Rejection of Unreasonable Offers

The Government may reject any proposal that is evaluated to be unreasonable in terms of program commitments, to
include failure to adequately address a significant portion of the requirements, contract terms and conditions, or
unreasonable pricing when compared to Government estimates, such that the proposal is deemed to reflect an
inherent lack of competence or failure to comprehend the complexity and risks of the program.

M.8 Elimination from Competition

Page 43
During this evaluation process, the SSO may determine to eliminate one or more Offerors from the competition.
This determination can be based on any single evaluation factor or a combination of factors. An Offeror may be
eliminated from competition following initial proposal evaluation, after discussion (if necessary), or prior to
submission of any proposal revisions. Offerors eliminated from the competition may request a post-award
debriefing in accordance with AMS 3.2.2.3.1.4.
