Combined Technical evaluation factors are more
important than the evaluated cost for the purpose of
making award.

However, the importance of the Cost should not be
minimized because as the Technical rankings of the
Offerors become closer, Cost becomes a more
important factor.

(cont.)
 Only relevant past performance history will be considered.
 The Government will determine relevance of past
performance information based on the similarity of the nature of
the previous work to the current requirement (i.e., Section C),
the dollar value of the previous efforts (i.e., equal to or greater
than $1,000,000), and the currency of the prior work (i.e., within
the past three years).
 If an Offeror has no past performance history, the Offeror
must affirmatively state this in its proposal.
 If the Offeror does not include past performance history or
does not affirmatively state that no past performance history
exists, the Offeror’s proposal will be rated Unacceptable for this
factor.
