Now that we apparently know from various sources the three teams competing for the LANL contract are
Team A = Bechtel/Purdue
Team B = University of California/Texas A&M/Battelle
Team C = University of Texas/BWX Technologies
I wonder how folks think they score relative to each other on the evaluation criteria in the RFP:
M-3 BASIS FOR CONTRACT AWARD
The Government intends to award one contract to the responsible Offeror whose proposal is responsive to the solicitation and is determined to be the best value to the Government. Selection of the best value to the Government will be achieved through a process of evaluating each Offeror’s proposal against the evaluation criteria described below. The Technical and Management Criteria in M-4 will be adjectivally rated. The Cost Criterion M-5 will not be adjectivally rated, but will be used in determining the “best-value” to the Government. In determining the best value to the Government, the Technical and Management Criteria, when combined, are significantly more important than the Cost Criterion.
M-4 TECHNICAL AND MANAGEMENT CRITERIA
The following criteria are listed with degrees of importance. Criterion 1 and 2 are of equal importance and, when combined, are significantly more important than Criterion 3.
(a) Criterion 1: PAST PERFORMANCE
The Government will evaluate the Offeror's relevant past performance during the last five years to determine if the relevant past performance demonstrates the Offeror’s ability to successfully perform the Statement of Work (SOW). Past performance that is determined to not be relevant will not be evaluated. Relevant past performance is past performance that is similar in size, scope and complexity to the requirements in the Statement of Work...In the case of an Offeror without a record of relevant past performance or for whom information on relevant past performance is not available, the Offeror will be evaluated neither favorably nor unfavorably in this criterion, and will be assigned a neutral rating... The Government will not apportion past performance under a DOE, NNSA, or other contract differently among parent companies that have teamed for the purposes of said contract; all parent companies under a contract will be equally credited (positively and negatively) for past performance for that contract.
(b) Criterion 2: LABORATORY ORGANIZATION AND KEY PERSONNEL
The Government will evaluate the Offeror’s Laboratory Organization, Key Personnel resumes, and information provided by Key Personnel references...
(c) Criterion 3: SMALL BUSINESS PARTICIPATION
The Government will evaluate the effectiveness of the Offeror's approach in using small businesses...
M-5 COST CRITERION
The Transition Price, Fee for Management and Operation of LANL and Fee for Strategic Partnership Projects (Section L, L-17) will be evaluated for price reasonableness.
I personally give Team B the edge
