                                                          Services
                                                Support Services Office (SSO)
                                          Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency

1.0       GENERAL
The contractor is required to provide a high quality, professional staff that uses teamwork to accomplish the necessary work,
continuously strives to improve the work process, provides the highest quality customer service, and that accomplishes the
tasks on time using initiative, innovativeness, and cost consciousness. The contractor personnel shall conduct themselves in a
manner reflecting the highest credit to the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). All contractor personnel
shall treat all persons with courtesy and respect and constantly strive to earn positive feedback of Support Services Office
(SSO) customers. Courtesy, tact, diplomacy and self-control shall be maintained even when firmness is necessary in the
performance of duties.

The contractor shall employ a qualified staff in the quantity necessary to satisfy the requirements of the scope of this contract.
Since all functions specifically identified in this statement of work (SOW) are to be readily available during the hours of
operation identified for each functional area, the contractor shall ensure that each specialized position has identified a fully
trained and readily available backup on-site to ensure continued quick response during peak period surges or employee
absence.

In the event of an inconsistency between the provisions of the SOW and the Program Management Plan (PMP) (i.e., the
Technical Approach section from the contractor's Volume I proposal or as subsequently revised/approved), the inconsistency
shall be resolved by giving precedence in the following order: (1) SOW, (2) other sections and attachments in contract, and (3)
PMP.

The contractor will begin performance of the SOW within 10 working days of contract award. The contractor should plan for
a maximum of a thirty day transition from the previous contractor at the beginning and end of the contract.

1.1      Introduction
Contractor support services, as described in this SOW, are required to support the SSO. The Director, SSO, reports to the
Deputy Director, DARPA. In fulfilling this responsibility, SSO expects world-class customer service that is delivered by
highly qualified staff that are dedicated to the development, implementation, and maintenance of efficient and effective
administrative programs and services.

1.2      Background
DARPA's mission is to maintain the technological superiority of the U.S. military and prevent technological surprise from
harming our national security by sponsoring revolutionary, high-payoff research that bridges the gap between fundamental
discoveries and their military use.
Over the years, DARPA has worked to enhance our national security by funding research and technology development that not
only have improved our military capabilities but have changed the way we live. Since the very beginning, DARPA has been
the place for people with innovative ideas that lead to groundbreaking discoveries.

The SSO mission is to support the DARPA mission by having a knowledgeable, lean, and adaptable staff that focuses on
world-class customer services to provide the tools, facilities, and administrative services that allow the technical and support
offices to do their jobs quicker and easier.

                            N10PS20023                  DARPA SSO




The SSO Vision supports the SSO mission with the following philosophy towards the provision of SSO programs and services:

1. We must be knowledgeable. We must know our jobs, know the DARPA mission and our role in accomplishing it, and know
and value the people we support - they are the heart of DARPA;

2. We must be lean. Activity is not the same as productivity. This means that we must ensure that we are right-sized, that we
value diversity, and that we use our funds and human resources wisely. We must concentrate on ensuring an environment that
allows new ideas to be heard and dedicate ourselves to improving our processes, doing it right the first time, and getting
results. We must ensure that the services we provide are what the customer values. We must concentrate on delivering a
quality product on time. On time means in accordance with the customer's clock, not ours;

3. We must be adaptable. We must always be ready and able to adjust easily to a new environment or different conditions. The
creative leaps that enable DARPA to provide our war fighters the technological edge requires the ability to recognize
opportunities and react rapidly. The SSO must be a facilitator to this creativity by providing rapid response and by adapting
our processes to meet specific mission needs. This means that we must always be prepared to challenge bureaucracy and we
continually ask ourselves if what we are doing is contributing to the mission. The answer should never be "because we've
always done it this way".

1.3       Scope
The Agency has a small organic government staff. This SOW encompasses SSO agency-wide support services to supplement
that staff relative to developing, implementing, and maintaining SSO support programs. The Contractor shall provide and
manage professional experienced personnel and equipment, to include support provided to the contractor by subcontractors or
consultants, to assure the continuity of these SSO programs. The contractor is required to perform all tasks within the SOW
and shall be capable of meeting surge periods when additional resources above the normal requirements are necessary to meet
short-term requirements or employee absence with on-site personnel.

The contractor shall advise and assist the government, but shall not make final decisions or certifications on behalf of the
government nor perform any inherently government functions. The contractor and its employees shall not represent the
government nor appear to represent the government in performance of these services. At all times, contractor personnel shall

process studies. From time to time emergency or special situations may require the contractor to make immediate changes in
operational procedures, processes, plans, deployment, and staffing levels to meet the specific situation. The changes may be
directed by the Director, SSO, COTR, or cognizant government program manager.

8510.01 and DoD Manual 5220.22-M. This DTM mandates that contractors protect DoD information and DoD information
systems appropriately. Attachment 2 of this DTM lists the specific requirements regarding appropriate protection of such
information.

employees know and understand the requirements regarding the protection of DoD information. Moreover, the contractor shall
ensure that all of its employees and agents, as well as employees and agents of any subcontractor, comply with all of these
requirements.

The contractor shall disseminate such information to the extent required to further the contract objectives, provided that the
information is disseminated within the scope of assigned duties and with a clear expectation that confidentiality will be
preserved. The contractor shall not process DoD information on public computers or computers that do not have access
control. Moreover, the contractor shall protect information by at least one physical or electronic barrier (e.g., locked container
or room, login and password) when not under direct individual control. The contractor shall sanitize media (e.g., overwrite)
before external release or disposal. The contractor shall encrypt all information that has been identified as controlled
unclassified information (CUI), when it is stored on mobile computing devices (such as laptops and personal digital assistants)
or removable storage media (such as thumb drives and compact disks) using the best available encryption technology.

level encryption. The contractor shall transmit voice and fax transmissions only when there is a reasonable assurance that
access is limited to authorized recipients.

The contractor shall not post DoD information on website pages that are publicly available or have access limited only by

following: (1) current and regularly updated malware protection services, e.g., anti-virus, anti-spyware; (2) monitoring and
control of inbound and outbound network traffic as appropriate (e.g., at the external boundary, sub-networks, individual hosts)
including blocking unauthorized ingress, egress, and exfiltration through technologies such as firewalls and router policies,
intrusion prevention or detection services, and host-based security services; and (3) prompt application of security-relevant
software patches, service packs and hot fixes.

The contractor shall comply with other current federal and DoD information protection and reporting requirements for
specified categories of information (e.g., medical, critical program information (CPI), personally identifiable information,
export controlled) as specified in this contract. The contractor shall report loss or unauthorized disclosure of information in
accordance with contract or agreement requirements and mechanisms.

work hours of all on-site contractor personnel in a manner that shall provide maximum responsiveness to the Government's
requirements. The Contracting Officer or the Contracting Officer's Technical Representative shall approve all overtime prior
to it being performed.
The use of part-time personnel to fulfill the requirements of this SOW shall be kept to minimum and COR pre-approval will
be required in all instances. Written justification for the use of part-time personnel on the contract shall be submitted to the
COR for review and approval via the cognizant SSO Chief or Director. If the contractor is requesting authorization for part-
time personnel, the justification shall, at a minimum, address why it is necessary to use part-timers, where, how, and when the
contractor recommends the part-timers to be used, and how and who will supervise the part-timers.

H.14     INTERRELATIONSHIPS OF CONTRACTORS


The Government has entered into contractual relationships in order to obtain technical support services in the conduct of
appropriate studies, analyses and engineering activities separate from the work to be performed under this SOW, yet having
links and interfaces to them. Further, the Government may extend these existing relationships or enter into new relationships.
The Contractor may be required to coordinate with such other Contractors through the designated COR in providing suitable,
non-conflicting technical interfaces and in avoidance of duplication of effort. By suitable tasking, such other Contractor(s)
may be requested to assist the Government in the technical review of the Contractor's technical efforts. Information on reports
provided under this SOW may, at the discretion of the Government, be provided to such other Contractor(s) for the purpose of
such review.

interaction with contractors and their employees. The Contractor hereby agrees to use its best efforts to prevent its employees
from taking any action which could be construed as soliciting, encouraging, assisting, aiding, or abetting any Government
employee to violate any provision of the JER. The contractor further agrees to provide a copy of the JER to all of its employees

All other rights and remedies of the parties that are consistent with the mandatory terms of any no-cost settlement agreement

H.18     ORGANIZATIOINAL CONFLICT OF INTEREST


Purpose: The primary purpose of this clause is to ensure that: (1) the Contractor's objectivity and judgment are not biased
because of its past, present, or currently planned interests (financial, contractual, organizational, or otherwise) which related to
work under this contract, (2) the Contractor does not obtain an unfair competitive advantage by virtue of its access to non-
public information regarding the Government's program plans and actual or anticipated resources, and (3) by virtue of its
access to proprietary information belonging to others, the contractor does not obtain any unfair competitive advantage.

Scope: The restrictions described herein shall apply to performance or participation by the Contractor and any of its affiliates
or their successors in interest (hereinafter collectively referred to as "contractor") in the activities covered by this clause as
prime contractor, subcontractor, cosponsor, joint venturer, consultant, or in any similar capacity.

         (1) Maintenance of Objectivity: The Contractor shall be ineligible to participate in any capacity in contracts,
subcontracts, or proposals therefore (solicited or unsolicited) which stem directly from the Contractor's performance of work
under this contract or are directly related to this contract, for example under the same Program or Project. Furthermore, unless
directed in writing by the Contracting Officer, the Contractor shall not perform any services under this contract on any of its
Solicitation                  Document No.                Document Title                                                    Page 45 of 90

own products or services or the products or services of another firm if the Contractor is, or has been substantially involved in
their development or marketing. In addition, if the Contractor under this contract advises the Government on the preparation
of, or prepares complete, or essentially complete, Statements of Work of objectives for competitive acquisitions, the Contractor
shall be ineligible to perform or participate in any capacity in any contractual effort which is based on such Statements of
Work or objectives. Nothing in this subparagraph shall preclude the Contractor from competing for follow-on contracts
involving the same or similar services.

          (2) Access To and Use of Government Information: If the Contractor, in the performance of this contract, obtains
access to information such as plans, policies, reports, studies, financial plans, or data which has not been released or otherwise
made available to the public, the Contractor agrees that without prior written approval from the Contracting Officer, it shall
not: (a) use such information for any private purpose unless the information has been released or otherwise made available to
the public, (b) compete for or accept work based on such information for a period of six months after the completion of the
contract, or until such information is released or otherwise made available to the public, whichever occurs first, (c) submit an
unsolicited proposal to the Government which is based on such information until one year after such information is released or
otherwise made available to the public, and (d) release such information unless such information has previously been released
or otherwise made available to the public by the Government.

          (3) Access To and Protection of Proprietary Information: The Contractor agrees that, to the extent it receives or is
given access to proprietary data, trade secrets, or other confidential or privileged technical, business or financial information
(hereinafter referred to as "proprietary data") under this contract, it shall treat such information in accordance with any
restrictions imposed on such information. The Contractor further agrees to enter into a written agreement for the protection of
the proprietary data of other contractors and to exercise diligent effort to protect such proprietary data from unauthorized
disclosure. In addition, the Contractor shall obtain from each employee who has access to proprietary data under this contract,
a written agreement which shall in substance provide that such employee shall not, during his/her employment by the
Contractor or thereafter, disclose to others or use for their benefit, proprietary data received in conjunction with the work under
this contract.

Subcontracts: The Contractor shall include this clause, including this paragraph, in consulting agreements and subcontracts of
any tier when directed by the Contracting Officer. The terms "contract," "contractor," and "contracting officer" will be
appropriately modified to preserve the Government's rights.

Representations and Disclosures:

         (1) The Contractor represents that it has disclosed to the Contracting Officer, prior to award, all facts relevant to the
existence or potential existence of organizational conflict or interest as that term is used in FAR Subpart 9.5.

          (2) The Contractor agrees that if after award it discovers an organizational conflict of interest with respect to this
contract, a prompt and full disclosure shall be made in writing to the Contracting Officer which shall include a description of
the action the Contractor has taken or proposes to take to avoid or mitigate such conflict(s).

Remedies and Waiver:

         (1) For breach of any of the above restrictions or for nondisclosure or misrepresentation of any relevant facts required
to be disclosed concerning this contract, the Government may terminate this contract for default, disqualify the Contractor
from subsequent related contractual efforts, and pursue such other remedies as may be permitted by law or this contract. If,
however, in compliance with this clause, the Contractor discovers and promptly reports an organizational conflict of interest
(or the potential therefor), subsequent to contract award, the Contracting Officer may terminate this contract for convenience
of the Government if such termination is deemed to be in the best interest of the Government.

           (2) The parties recognize that this clause has potential effects which will survive the performance of this contract and
that it is impossible to foresee each circumstance to which it might be applied in the future. Accordingly, the Contractor may,
at any time, seek a waiver from the Contracting Officer by submitting a full written description of the requested waiver and the
Solicitation                  Document No.                Document Title                                                    Page 46 of 90

reasons in support thereof. If it is determined to be in the best interests of the Government, the Contracting Officer will grant
such a waiver.

As prescribed in 227.7103-6(a), use the following clause:

RIGHTS IN TECHNICAL DATA--NONCOMMERCIAL ITEMS (NOV 1995)

(a) Definitions. As used in this clause:

(1) ―Computer data base‖ means a collection of data recorded in a form capable of being processed by a computer. The term
does not include computer software.

(2) ―Computer program‖ means a set of instructions, rules, or routines recorded in a form that is capable of causing a computer
to perform a specific operation or series of operations.

(3) ―Computer software‖ means computer programs, source code, source code listings, object code listings, design details,
algorithms, processes, flow charts, formulae and related material that would enable the software to be reproduced, recreated, or
recompiled. Computer software does not include computer data bases or computer software documentation.

(4) ―Computer software documentation‖ means owner's manuals, user's manuals, installation instructions, operating
instructions, and other similar items, regardless of storage medium, that explain the capabilities of the computer software or
provide instructions for using the software.

(5) ―Detailed manufacturing or process data‖ means technical data that describe the steps, sequences, and conditions of
manufacturing, processing or assembly used by the manufacturer to produce an item or component or to perform a process.
Solicitation                  Document No.                 Document Title                                                        Page 64 of 90

(6) ―Developed‖ means that an item, component, or process exists and is workable. Thus, the item or component must have
been constructed or the process practiced. Workability is generally established when the item, component, or process has been
analyzed or tested sufficiently to demonstrate to reasonable people skilled in the applicable art that there is a high probability
that it will operate as intended. Whether, how much, and what type of analysis or testing is required to establish workability
depends on the nature of the item, component, or process, and the state of the art. To be considered ―developed,‖ the item,
component, or process need not be at the stage where it could be offered for sale or sold on the commercial market, nor must
the item, component, or process be actually reduced to practice within the meaning of Title 35 of the United States Code.

(7) ―Developed exclusively at private expense‖ means development was accomplished entirely with costs charged to indirect
cost pools, costs not allocated to a government contract, or any combination thereof.

(i) Private expense determinations should be made at the lowest practicable level.

(ii) Under fixed-price contracts, when total costs are greater than the firm-fixed-price or ceiling price of the contract, the
additional development costs necessary to complete development shall not be considered when determining whether
development was at government, private, or mixed expense.

(8) ―Developed exclusively with government funds‖ means development was not accomplished exclusively or partially at
private expense.

(9) ―Developed with mixed funding‖ means development was accomplished partially with costs charged to indirect cost pools
and/or costs not allocated to a government contract, and partially with costs charged directly to a government contract.

(10) ―Form, fit, and function data‖ means technical data that describes the required overall physical, functional, and
performance characteristics (along with the qualification requirements, if applicable) of an item, component, or process to the
extent necessary to permit identification of physically and functionally interchangeable items.

(11) ―Government purpose‖ means any activity in which the United States Government is a party, including cooperative
agreements with international or multi-national defense organizations, or sales or transfers by the United States Government to
foreign governments or international organizations. Government purposes include competitive procurement, but do not include
the rights to use, modify, reproduce, release, perform, display, or disclose technical data for commercial purposes or authorize
others to do so.

(12) ―Government purpose rights‖ means the rights to—

(i) Use, modify, reproduce, release, perform, display, or disclose technical data within the Government without restriction; and

(ii) Release or disclose technical data outside the Government and authorize persons to whom release or disclosure has been
made to use, modify, reproduce, release, perform, display, or disclose that data for United States government purposes.

(13) ―Limited rights‖ means the rights to use, modify, reproduce, release, perform, display, or disclose technical data, in whole
or in part, within the Government. The Government may not, without the written permission of the party asserting limited
rights, release or disclose the technical data outside the Government, use the technical data for manufacture, or authorize the
technical data to be used by another party, except that the Government may reproduce, release or disclose such data or
authorize the use or reproduction of the data by persons outside the Government if reproduction, release, disclosure, or use is—

(i) Necessary for emergency repair and overhaul; or

(ii) A release or disclosure of technical data (other than detailed manufacturing or process data) to, or use of such data by, a
foreign government that is in the interest of the Government and is required for evaluational or informational purposes;

(iii) Subject to a prohibition on the further reproduction, release, disclosure, or use of the technical data; and
Solicitation                  Document No.                 Document Title                                                       Page 65 of 90

(iv) The contractor or subcontractor asserting the restriction is notified of such reproduction, release, disclosure, or use.

(14) ―Technical data‖ means recorded information, regardless of the form or method of the recording, of a scientific or
technical nature (including computer software documentation). The term does not include computer software or data incidental
to contract administration, such as financial and/or management information.

(15) ―Unlimited rights‖ means rights to use, modify, reproduce, perform, display, release, or disclose technical data in whole or
in part, in any manner, and for any purpose whatsoever, and to have or authorize others to do so.

party;

(viii) Data in which the Government has obtained unlimited rights under another Government contract or as a result of

appropriate scope set forth in paragraph (b) of this clause, and has affixed a statement of the license or licenses obtained on
behalf of the Government and other persons to the data transmittal document.

The Contractor shall not deliver any data with restrictive markings unless the data are listed on the Attachment.

(3) In addition to the assertions made in the Attachment, other assertions may be identified after award when based on new
information or inadvertent omissions unless the inadvertent omissions would have materially affected the source selection
decision. Such identification and assertion shall be submitted to the Contracting Officer as soon as practicable prior to the
scheduled date for delivery of the data, in the following format, and signed by an official authorized to contractually obligate
the Contractor:

Identification and Assertion of Restrictions on the Government's Use, Release,

or Disclosure of Technical Data.

(4) When requested by the Contracting Officer, the Contractor shall provide sufficient information to enable the Contracting
Officer to evaluate the Contractor's assertions. The Contracting Officer reserves the right to add the Contractor's assertions to
the Attachment and validate any listed assertion, at a later date, in accordance with the procedures of the Validation of
Restrictive Markings on Technical Data clause of this contract.

(f) Marking requirements. The Contractor, and its subcontractors or suppliers, may only assert restrictions on the Government's
rights to use, modify, reproduce, release, perform, display, or disclose technical data to be delivered under this contract by
marking the deliverable data subject to restriction. Except as provided in paragraph (f)(5) of this clause, only the following
legends are authorized under this contract: the government purpose rights legend at paragraph (f)(2) of this clause; the limited
rights legend at paragraph (f)(3) of this clause; or the special license rights legend at paragraph (f)(4) of this clause; and/or a
notice of copyright as prescribed under 17 U.S.C. 401 or 402.

(1) General marking instructions. The Contractor, or its subcontractors or suppliers, shall conspicuously and legibly mark the
appropriate legend on all technical data that qualify for such markings. The authorized legends shall be placed on the
transmittal document or storage container and, for printed material, each page of the printed material containing technical data
for which restrictions are asserted. When only portions of a page of printed material are subject to the asserted restrictions,
such portions shall be identified by circling, underscoring, with a note, or other appropriate identifier. Technical data
transmitted directly from one computer or computer terminal to another shall contain a notice of asserted restrictions.
Reproductions of technical data or any portions thereof subject to asserted restrictions shall also reproduce the asserted
restrictions.

(2) Government purpose rights markings. Data delivered or otherwise furnished to the Government with government purpose
rights shall be marked as follows:

(End of legend)

(ii) For purposes of this clause, special licenses do not include government purpose license rights acquired under a prior
contract (see paragraph (b)(5) of this clause).

(5) Pre-existing data markings. If the terms of a prior contract or license permitted the Contractor to restrict the Government's
rights to use, modify, reproduce, release, perform, display, or disclose technical data deliverable under this contract, and those
restrictions are still applicable, the Contractor may mark such data with the appropriate restrictive legend for which the data
qualified under the prior contract or license. The marking procedures in paragraph (f)(1) of this clause shall be followed.

(g) Contractor procedures and records. Throughout perrformance of this contract, the Contractor and its subcontractors or
suppliers that will deliver technical data with other than unlimited rights, shall—

(1) Have, maintain, and follow written procedures sufficient to assure that restrictive markings are used only when authorized
by the terms of this clause; and

(2) Maintain records sufficient to justify the validity of any restrictive markings on technical data delivered under this contract.

(h) Removal of unjustified and nonconforming markings.

(1) Unjustified technical data markings. The rights and obligations of the parties regarding the validation of restrictive
markings on technical data furnished or to be furnished under this contract are contained in the Validation of Restrictive
Markings on Technical Data clause of this contract. Notwithstanding any provision of this contract concerning inspection and
acceptance, the Government may ignore or, at the Contractor's expense, correct or strike a marking if, in accordance with the
procedures in the Validation of Restrictive Markings on Technical Data clause of this contract, a restrictive marking is
determined to be unjustified.

(2) Nonconforming technical data markings. A nonconforming marking is a marking placed on technical data delivered or
otherwise furnished to the Government under this contract that is not in the format authorized by this contract. Correction of
nonconforming markings is not subject to the Validation of Restrictive Markings on Technical Data clause of this contract. If
the Contracting Officer notifies the Contractor of a nonconforming marking and the Contractor fails to remove or correct such
marking within sixty (60) days, the Government may ignore or, at the Contractor's expense, remove or correct any
nonconforming marking.

(i) Relation to patents. Nothing contained in this clause shall imply a license to the Government under any patent or be
construed as affecting the scope of any license or other right otherwise granted to the Government under any patent.

(j) Limitation on charges for rights in technical data.

(1) The Contractor shall not charge to this contract any cost, including, but not limited to, license fees, royalties, or similar
charges, for rights in technical data to be delivered under this contract when—

(i) The Government has acquired, by any means, the same or greater rights in the data; or

(ii) The data are available to the public without restrictions.

(2) The limitation in paragraph (j)(1) of this clause—

(i) Includes costs charged by a subcontractor or supplier, at any tier, or costs incurred by the Contractor to acquire rights in
subcontractor or supplier technical data, if the subcontractor or supplier has been paid for such rights under any other
Government contract or under a license conveying the rights to the Government; and
Solicitation                  Document No.                Document Title                                                    Page 71 of 90
                             N10PS20023                   DARPA SSO




(ii) Does not include the reasonable costs of reproducing, handling, or mailing the documents or other media in which the
technical data will be delivered.

(k) Applicability to subcontractors or suppliers.

(1) The Contractor shall ensure that the rights afforded its subcontractors and suppliers under 10 U.S.C. 2320, 10 U.S.C. 2321,
and the identification, assertion, and delivery processes of paragraph (e) of this clause are recognized and protected.

(2) Whenever any technical data for noncommercial items is to be obtained from a subcontractor or supplier for delivery to the
Government under this contract, the Contractor shall use this same clause in the subcontract or other contractual instrument,
and require its subcontractors or suppliers to do so, without alteration, except to identify the parties. No other clause shall be
used to enlarge or diminish the Government's, the Contractor's, or a higher-tier subcontractor's or supplier's rights in a
subcontractor's or supplier's technical data.

(3) Technical data required to be delivered by a subcontractor or supplier shall normally be delivered to the next higher-tier
contractor, subcontractor, or supplier. However, when there is a requirement in the prime contract for data which may be
submitted with other than unlimited rights by a subcontractor or supplier, then said subcontractor or supplier may fulfill its
requirement by submitting such data directly to the Government, rather than through a higher-tier contractor, subcontractor, or
supplier.

(4) The Contractor and higher-tier subcontractors or suppliers shall not use their power to award contracts as economic
leverage to obtain rights in technical data from their subcontractors or suppliers.

(5) In no event shall the Contractor use its obligation to recognize and protect subcontractor or supplier rights in technical data
as an excuse for failing to satisfy its contractual obligation to the Government.

restrictions. For technical data, other than computer software documentation, development refers to development of the item,
component, or process to which the data pertain. The Government's rights in computer software documentation generally may
not be restricted. For computer software, development refers to the software. Indicate whether development was
accomplished exclusively or partially at private expense. If development was not accomplished at private expense, or for
computer software documentation, enter the specific basis for asserting restrictions.

                  ***Enter asserted rights category (e.g., government purpose license rights from a prior contract, rights in
SBIR data generated under another contract, limited, restricted, or government purpose rights under this or a prior contract, or

L.7.1    DISCUSSIONS:

a. In accordance with Contract Provision 52.215-1 INSTRUCTIONS TO OFFERORS - COMPETITIVE ACQUISITION, the
Government intends to award without discussions with Offerors. Since Offerors may correct deficiencies, as defined in FAR
15.001, only through discussions, Offerors are cautioned to examine this solicitation in its entirety and to ensure that their
proposal contains all necessary information, provides all required documentation, and is complete in all respects.

b. Offerors should address the criteria contained in Section M rather than attempt to address each SOW paragraph or
reference. Unnecessary elaborate or lengthy proposals are not desired. DO NOT PARROT THE SOW.

L.7.2    ORGANIZATION:

a. All information pertaining to the Technical and Management, Past Performance, and Cost volumes, shall be confined to the
appropriate Proposal Volume in order to facilitate independent evaluation. Proposals shall be clear and concise, logically
assembled (with all pages appropriately numbered) and indexed and cross-indexed to applicable parts of the Statement of
Work or Request for Proposal, as appropriate. To reduce proposal size, the offerors shall confine submission to essential
matters sufficient to define the proposal, and provide an adequate basis for evaluation. No price information shall be presented
in any part of the proposal except the Price Proposal. Files shall not contain classified data.

b. Each Offeror's proposal shall be submitted in hard copy and CD. The Offeror shall provide: (1) a Master CD which
includes all five volumes of the proposal; and one (1) hard copy and five (5) CDs for each volume of the proposal as specified

Proposal Format.
This section provides general guidance for preparing proposals as well as specific instructions on the format and content of the
proposal. Each volume shall be complete in and of itself. Unless otherwise specified, any form of presentation may be used,
such as narrative, pictures, tables, graphs, schematics, logic and other functional block diagrams to provide a concise
description of information.

Page.
A page is defined as each face of an 8.5 x 11-inch sheet of white paper containing information (excludes such things as blank
pages, title pages, table of contents, tabs, dividers, glossaries, and indices). Use at least 1-inch margins on all sides of each
page. All material must be contained within the page limit identified for each volume. When both sides of a sheet of paper
display printed material, it shall be counted as two pages. Pages shall be numbered sequentially by volume. Each Offeror
shall use a consecutive page numbering. Charts, etc. will be page numbered as part of the page numbering system. Page limits
shall be treated as maximums. If exceeded, the excess pages will not be read or considered in the evaluation of the proposal
and the paper copies will not be returned to the offeror. These limitations shall apply to both electronic and paper proposals.
If final proposal revisions (FPRs) are required, the same page limitations apply.

Text.
Text type should be Times New Roman or Arial, no smaller than 12-point with normal proportional spacing. Text lines will be
no less than single-spaced.

Illustrations and Tables.
Legible tables, charts, graphs and figures should be used wherever practical to depict organizations, systems and layout,
implementation schedules, plans, etc. These displays should be uncomplicated, legible and shall not exceed 11 x 17 inches in
size. Foldout pages shall fold entirely within the volume, and for page count purposes, each printed side of foldout pages shall
count as two pages. Foldout pages may only be used for large tables, charts, graphs, diagrams and schematics, and not for
pages of text. For tables, charts, graphs and figures, the text shall be no smaller than 8 point. These limitations shall apply to
both electronic and paper proposals.

Glossary.
Each volume shall contain a glossary of all abbreviations and acronyms used, with an explanation for each. Glossaries do not
count against the page limitations for their respective volumes.

Binding and Labeling.
Each volume shall be separately bound and labeled in standard three-ring loose-leaf binders, which shall permit the volume to
lie flat when open. Staples shall not be used. The cover and spine of each binder will clearly identify the offeror's name,
volume number, SOL number, SOL title (e.g., Solicitation Number N10PS20023, DARPA/SSO) and copy number (e.g., copy
2 of 4). All binders will allow for easy removal and replacement of pages. Offers must use appropriate markings including
those prescribed in accordance with FAR 52.215-1(e), Restriction on Disclosure and Use of Data, and FAR 3.104-4,
Disclosure, Protection, and Marking of Contractor Bid or Proposal Information and Source Selection Information.

Electronic Offers.
A complete copy of the proposal shall be submitted in electronic format using IBM-compatible, virus-free CD-ROM. Use
separate files and folders to permit rapid location of all portions, including exhibits, annexes, and attachments, if any. To the
Solicitation                 Document No.                  Document Title                                                 Page 78 of 90
                            N10PS20023                     DARPA SSO




maximum extent practicable, all proposal documents and cost information should be placed on one disk. The electronic copies
of the proposal shall be submitted in a format readable by Microsoft (MS) Word 2007, MS Excel 2007, or MS-Power Point
2007, as applicable. Read passwords on files shall not be used. In the event that there is a discrepancy between the content
found in a paper copy and an electronic copy, the paper copy shall take precedence. Replacement disks will be required to
update the final proposal resulting from any discussions and updates.

Cost or Pricing Information.
All cost or pricing information shall be addressed ONLY in Volume II, Price Proposal. Discussions of cost savings and cost
considerations may be included in Volume I, Technical/Management Proposal to support best value considerations.

Cross Referencing.
Each volume shall be written on a stand alone basis so that its contents may be evaluated with minimal cross-referencing to
other volumes of the proposal. However, cross-referencing within the technical proposal volume is required. The purpose of
the technical proposal cross-reference matrix is to show critical interrelationships and dependencies among the Statement of
Work, Sections L and M of the RFP, and the offeror's proposal. Information required for proposal evaluation that is not found
in its designated volume will be assumed to have been omitted from the proposal. The cross-reference matrix does not count
in the total page count of its respective volume.

Indexing.
Each volume shall contain a more detailed table of contents to delineate the sections within that volume. Tab indexing will be
used to identify sections.

Page Limits.
Page limitations shall be treated as mandatory requirements. If exceeded, the excess pages will not be read or considered in
the evaluation of the proposal and will be returned to the Offeror as soon as practicable. Graphics, charts, illustrations and
pictures shall count towards page limits. The page count excludes title pages, dividers, cover pages, table of contents, and
tabs/section dividers.

d. Proposal due date, time, and place: Proposals shall be submitted to
Kimberly Ogden no later than 28 September 2010 by 12:00 PM, Arizona time to:

VOLUME II - TECHNICAL AND MANAGEMENT PROPOSAL (SECTION)

This volume shall be sufficiently specific, detailed, and complete as to demonstrate clearly and fully that the Offeror has a
thorough understanding and knowledge of the problems inherent in performing the requirements of the SOW. Statements that
the Offeror understands, can, or will perform the listed functions without supporting information or narrative is inadequate.

evaluation as to whether the services offered adequately respond to the specific Government requirements and shall contain the
following evaluation subfactors listed in descending order of importance: Subsection (1) Personnel Qualifications; Subsection
(2) Organizational Experience; and Subsection (3) Management & Facilities.

PERSONNEL QUALIFICATIONS
ORGANIZATIONAL EXPERIENCE
MANAGEMENT & FACILITIES

a. PERSONNEL QUALIFICATIONS (SUBSECTION 1)

This subsection is an evaluation of resumes submitted for the Key Labor categories: Program Manager, Senior
Scientist/Engineer, Senior Systems Analyst, and Senior Program Analyst. These Key Labor Categories are considered
essential to this effort. Their removal or absence from the contract would adversely impact quality, schedule or cost. Each
resume submitted will be evaluated against the desired qualifications outlined in the Personnel Qualifications (Attachment (1)
to the solicitation), in comparison to the technical requirements under the Statement of Work in paragraph 10.0, and what
percentage of time by the key resumed personnel is committed to this effort.

b. ORGANIZATIONAL EXPERIENCE (SUBSECTION 2)

Experience is the opportunity to learn by doing. An offeror's experience is relevant when they have been confronted with the
kinds of challenges that will confront them under the contract contemplated by this RFP. This evaluation will consider the
breadth, depth and relevance of offeror work performed since 2000. Section L of the RFP instructs offerors to complete a
prescribed matrix which details organizational experience in nine (9) key areas from the Statement of Work (SOW) stated
below. The areas listed below are all equally important.

                  (1)   Strategic Planning and Technical Analysis for Program Formulation (SOW Para 3.3).

                  (2) Program Planning and Financial Processing (SOW Para 3.3.3).

                  (3) Program Control (SOW Para 3.4.2).

                  (4)   Conference/Meeting Planning (SOW Para 5.2).

                  (5) Program and Technical Documentation (SOW Para 3.7.6)

                  (6)   Documentation Management and Control (SOW Para 3.4).

L.10     VOLUME III - PAST PERFORMANCE

VOLUME III - PAST PERFORMANCE (SECTION)

(1) The Government will evaluate the offeror's past and recent performance on contracts similar to this effort in order to assess
the risk inherent in selecting a particular Contractor for award. The information provided by the offeror in Volume III - Past
Performance, and any other information the Government obtains from other sources, will be used to determine a company's
performance history on that effort.

(2) The Government will assess each offeror's past performance. The assessment will be a subjective, but unbiased, judgment
about the quality of the offeror's past performance. The Government will use its subjective assessment to determine an
offeror's relative capability and trustworthiness, and thus the relative reliability of the offeror's promises. The determination of
which offeror is the best value will reflect both the value of offerors' promises and the reliability of those promises as
determined, in part, by their past performance. Thus, the Government may value an offeror with a superior record of past
performance more highly than an offeror whose past performance is satisfactory, even though the offeror with the satisfactory
record made better promises in its proposal.

(3) The Government may base its judgment about the quality of an offeror's past performance on (1) records of objective
measurements and subjective ratings of specified performance attributes, if available, and (2) statements of opinion about the
quality of specific aspects of an offeror's performance, or about the quality of an offeror's overall performance. The
Government may solicit information from an offeror's customers and business associates; federal, state, and local government
agencies; and from other persons and organizations. The government reserves the right to limit the number of references it
decides to contact and to contact references other than those provided by the offeror.

(4) The performance attributes which the Government will assess include, for example: the offeror's record of conforming to
contract requirements, including the administrative aspects of performance; the offeror's reputation for good workmanship; the
offeror's record of forecasting and controlling costs; the offeror's record for adhering to contract schedules; the offeror's
reputation for reasonable and cooperative behavior and commitment to customer satisfaction; and, generally, the offeror's
reputation for demonstrating a business-like concern for the interests of its customers.

a. Past Performance Questionnaires:

(1) The offeror shall ensure that a Past Performance Questionnaire, as set forth in Section J, Attachment 3, Past Performance
Questionnaire, is completed for each referenced contract.

(2) It is the sole responsibility of the Offeror to provide their references with a copy of the questionnaire. It is also the Offerors
responsibility to ensure the references return the questionnaire directly to the contracting office listed in below paragraph 3.

(3) Offerors must ensure that Past Performance references return the Past Performance Questionnaires by the due date and time
designated by this RFP for submission of proposals. Past Performance Questionnaires should be e-mailed, faxed, or delivered
to the address below:

NOTE 1: The Government reserves the right to contact and use information provided by the references and any other sources.
It is the Offeror's responsibility to ensure all reference data is current so that the performance information can be evaluated.

NOTE 2: In the case of an offeror without a record of relevant past performance or for whom information on past performance
is not available; the offeror may not be evaluated favorably or unfavorably on past performance.

(b) The subsections listed below are of equal importance.

                  Subsection 1: Record of conforming to specifications and standards of good workmanship/customer service.

                  Subsection 2: Record of containing and forecasting costs and accuracy of invoicing.


                  Subsection 3: Record of contractor's innovation and aggressiveness on performance issues

                 Subsections 4: Record of contractor's ability to provide highly technical and currently available personnel in
a system engineering technical advisory role.

(5)       The offeror and its subcontractors and teaming partners will be evaluated as a team. The aggregate results of the
survey of customers, and any other information deemed appropriate, will be analyzed to identify performance trends. A group
consensus will be prepared which identifies the risks inherent in selecting a particular Contractor team for award, and the
offeror/team will be assigned a single risk assessment rating.


6)       If the offeror is a new entity and none of the company principals have relevant work experience, the offeror will be
considered as having no past performance. In the case of an offeror without a record of relevant past performance or for whom
information on past performance is not available, the offeror's lack of past performance will be expressed as an unknown risk,
having no favorable or unfavorable impact on the evaluation.


L.11     VOLUME IV - COST PROPOSAL

VOLUME V - COST PROPOSAL (FACTOR - COST REALISM)

a. COST PROPOSAL:

(1) Cost proposals shall be submitted with total estimated costs, including fixed fee as along with a narrative supporting the
costs. Offerors are advised that costs should be:

(A) Realistic for the work to be performed;
(B) Reflect a clear understanding of the requirements;
(C) Consistent with the various elements of the offeror's technical proposal.

(2) Cost proposals shall include the following elements:

(A) Direct Costs
(B) Indirect Costs/Rates
(C) Fixed Fee Percentage

                             N10PS20023                   DARPA SSO




(D) A copy of the offeror's Forward Pricing Rate Agreement, or DCAA Approved Rates. If the offeror does not have a
Forward Pricing Rate Agreement or DCAA Approved rates, sufficient documentation shall be provided with the proposal to
sufficiently document how the indirect rates were calculated.

(3) If subcontractors are used, each subcontractor is required to submit the same level of pricing detail as is required for the
prime contractor.

b. LABOR CATEGORY COSTS:

(1) Offerors shall provide direct labor rates (composite rates may be used) for no less than five (5) and no more than ten (10)
labor categories that they anticipate may be the most utilized for performing task orders under the resulting contract.

(2) Offerors shall provide an anticipated escalation rate that can be applied to the composite labor rates over the life of the
resulting contract.

(3) For information purposes only, the following labor categories have been historically utilized to support the requirements of
this contract. This listing is no way limiting the types of labor categories to be proposed, it is for information purposes only.

Price and Price Realism. Subsection 1. Price is the total offered price. Subfactor 2. Price Realism is slightly more important
than the total offered price. The government will evaluate price realism by comparing multiple factors as described below.
Solicitation                  Document No.                 Document Title                                                    Page 84 of 90
                             N10PS20023                    DARPA SSO




                   Subsection 1: Price. Price is represented by the total offered price and is, therefore, not evaluated; however,
this is a meaningful consideration in the source selection. The Government will verify the Total Proposed Contract price by
multiplying the fully loaded rate for each labor category in by the estimated hours specified for each category. The resulting
totals will be summed by year (one one-year base period, four one-year option periods). These totals will be summed and
added to the cost reimbursable items to arrive at a Total Proposed Contract price for each offeror.

                    Subsection 2: Price Realism. Price Realism will be evaluated based on both summary and detailed labor
price levels, and total compensation package. Price Realism will evaluate the offeror's total approach for meeting the complete
requirements of the solicitation using price analysis techniques as specified in the FAR. The Government is seeking realistic
and reasonable prices for a high-quality SETA and Administrative Support approach, as well as demonstrated ability to
manage the financial aspects of this effort. Price realism relates to the offeror's ability to project prices which are realistic and
reasonable, and which indicate the offeror's understanding of the nature and scope of the work to be performed. The
Government will analyze the fully loaded composite labor rates (detailed price levels) and extended prices (summary levels)
against an industry standard, which it will derive from all proposals for each labor category, and the Independent Government
Cost Estimate (IGCE). The Government will consider the extent to which the proposed price at the detailed and summary
levels are realistic against the industry standard and IGCE, and the level of risk, considering other aspects of the offeror's
proposal, e.g., compensation package, fringe package, composite overtime rates, and use of uncompensated overtime.

L.12     OFFER ACCEPTANCE PERIOD

If an offer is accepted by the Government within 120 calendar days from the solicitation closing date, the contractor agrees to
hold its offered prices firm for the services solicited herein and to accept any resulting contract subject to the terms and
conditions stated herein.
Solicitation                 Document No.                 Document Title                                                   Page 85 of 90

SECTION M -- EVALUATION FACTORS FOR AWARD


M.1      EVALUATION OF PROPOSALS


(a) All proposals submitted in response to the solicitation will be evaluated in detail by a formally established, impartial
Source Selection Evaluation Board (SSEB) staffed by Government personnel who are technically knowledgeable of the
Government's requirements.

(b) An overall evaluation of the merit of each proposal will be developed. The assessment of overall merit will be derived
from the evaluation of the proposal as it relates to each factor and subfactor rating identified in Section L and M-4.



M.2      BASIS FOR AWARD


Award will be made only after agreement has been reached on all terms and conditions of the resultant contract and on a fair
market price for the services to be acquired. The Government reserves the right to award a contract on the basis of the initial
offer received, without discussions.

M.3      UNCOMPENSATED OVERTIME EVALUATION


(a) The use of uncompensated overtime is defined in FAR 52.237-10 "Identification of Uncompensated Overtime" is
discouraged by the Government. Based upon our assessment of the technical services required herein, it is unrealistic to
expect long-term employees to continually work in excess of the industry norm of 40 hours per week. Therefore, the use of
uncompensated overtime in this acquisition presents a significant risk to the Government.

(b) Offerors are advised that if uncompensated overtime is proposed, the alternate cost breakdown specified in paragraph (g) of
Provision L-27 "Uncompensated Overtime and Professional Employees" will be used for cost evaluation purposes. THUS,
NO EVALUATION ADVANTAGE WILL RESULT WHEN UNCOMPENSATED OVERTIME IS PROPOSED.



M.4      EVALUATION CRITERIA AND BASIS FOR AWARD (BEST VALUE)


(a) The contract resulting from this solicitation will be awarded to that responsible offeror whose offer conforming to the
solicitation, is determined to provide the "best value" to the Government. Such offer may not necessarily be the proposal
offering the lowest cost or receiving the highest technical rating.

(b) Proposals will be rated and ranked on the evaluation factors listed below. It should be noted that price is not a numerically
weighted factor. Although technical factors are significantly more important than price, price is an important factor and should
be considered when preparing responsive proposals. The importance of price as an evaluation factor will increase with the
degree of equality of the proposals in relation to the remaining evaluation factors. When the offerors within the competitive
range are considered essentially equal in terms of technical capability, or when price is so significantly high as to diminish the
value of the technical superiority to the government, price may become the determining factor for award. In summary,
price/technical trade-offs will be made, and the extent to which one may be sacrificed for the other is governed only by the
tests of rationality and consistency with the established evaluation factors.
Solicitation                 Document No.               Document Title                                                  Page 86 of 90

(c) Priority Statement: The three evaluation areas are Technical/Management, Past Performance, and Price and Price Realism.
The four areas will be evaluated with the factors and subfactors listed below and each will be assigned a single color rating.
The evaluation factors listed are in descending order of importance: Factor (1) Technical/Management, Factor (2) Past
Performance, and Factor (3) Price and Price Realism. All evaluation factors, other than Price, when combined, are
significantly more important than price.

(d) Compliance with RFP: Each offer will be evaluated to determine its acceptability. An offer will be considered acceptable
when it manifests the offeror's assent, without exception or imposition of condition, to the terms and conditions of this RFP,
including attachments and documents incorporated by reference. An offer that takes exception to any of the terms and
conditions of this RFP, imposes additional conditions, or omits material information required by this RFP may be considered
to be unacceptable.

(e) The evaluation factors and subfactors information are listed below.

        Factor 1: Technical/Management. The following evaluation subfactors are in descending order of importance:
Subfactor (1) Personnel Qualifications, Subfactor (2) Organizational Experience, and Subfactor (3) Management & Facilities.

                  Subfactor 1: Personnel Qualifications.

          This subfactor is an evaluation of resumes submitted for the Key Labor categories: Program Manager, Senior
Scientist/Engineer, Senior Systems Analyst, and Senior Program Analyst. These Key Labor Categories are considered
essential to this effort. Their removal or absence from the contract would adversely impact quality, schedule or cost. Each
resume submitted will be evaluated against the desired qualifications outlined in the Personnel Qualifications (Attachment (1)
to the solicitation), in comparison to the technical requirements under the Statement of Work in paragraph 10.0, and what
percentage of time by the key resumed personnel is committed to this effort.

                  Subfactor 2:   Organizational Experience.

         Experience is the opportunity to learn by doing. An offeror's experience is relevant when they have been confronted
with the kinds of challenges that will confront them under the contract contemplated by this RFP. This evaluation will
consider the breadth, depth and relevance of offeror work performed since 2000. Section L of the RFP instructs offerors to
complete a prescribed matrix which details organizational experience in eight (8) key areas from the Statement of Work
(SOW) stated below. The areas listed below are all equally important.

                  (1)   Strategic Planning and Technical Analysis for Program Formulation (SOW Para 3.3).

                  (2) Program Planning and Financial Processing (SOW Para 3.3.3).

                  (3) Program Control (SOW Para 3.4.2).

                  (4)   Conference/Meeting Planning (SOW Para 5.2).

                  (5) Program and Technical Documentation (SOW Para 3.7.6)

                  (6)   Documentation Management and Control (SOW Para 3.4).

                  (7)   DARPA/SSO World Wide Web (WWW) Support (SOW Para 3.3.1).

                  (8)   Administrative/Program Support (SOW Para 3.5).


                  Subfactor 3:   Management & Facilities.

                            Part 1: The Offeror shall demonstrate the feasibility of a proposed management approach for
accomplishing the tasks delineated in the Statement of Work. The corporate structure, and functional relationships and
responsibilities among the organizational elements that will participate in accomplishing this effort, including internal
management communication lines and methods of both maintaining close liaison with the Government Contracting Officer's
Representative (COR), and methods of overall supervision and immediate supervision at the work place and off-site locations
will be evaluated. Management of proposed subcontractors (if any) and extent of their involvement in the performance of this
contract, and details of how each subcontractor will be integrated into the overall management approach will also be evaluated.

                             Part 2: The evaluation will be based on the capabilities of the company's facilities in relation to the
requirements in Section L.

(f)      The technical assessment will be expressed using the following color ratings:


RATING            DESCRIPTION

BLUE (EXCEPTIONAL) Proposal is outstanding; greatly exceeds the Government's minimum requirements. Offeror's
proposed capability or proposed effort is of the highest quality and thoroughly justified or substantiated. Total internal
consistency and no incompatibility with other portions of proposed efforts. Proposal has significant strength(s) in meeting the
RFP requirements which is not offset by any weakness(s) or risk(s). Proposal represents a low risk.

GREEN (GOOD) Proposal is good; exceeds the Government's minimum requirements. Offeror's proposed capability or
proposed effort is high quality and is well justified or substantiated. No or very minor inconsistencies or incompatibilities with
other portions of the proposed efforts. Proposal has strength(s) in meeting the requirements of the RFP which is not offset by a
weakness (es) or risk(s), or has only a minor weakness (es) or risk(s). Proposal represents a moderate to low risk.

YELLOW (ACCEPTABLE) Proposal is acceptable; meets the Government's minimum requirements. Offeror's proposed
capability or proposed effort is of an acceptable level of quality and justified or substantiated. No significant inconsistencies or
incompatibilities with other portions of proposed efforts. Proposal may have a strength(s) in meeting the requirements of the
RFP and/or may have a weakness (es) or risk(s). Proposal represents a moderate risk.

PINK (WEAK) Proposal is weak; Government's minimum requirements are not met. Insufficient evidence that offeror's
proposed capability or proposed effort is of an acceptable level of quality. Inconsistencies and incompatibilities with other
portions of the proposal exists. Proposal may have a strength(s) in meeting the requirements of the RFP; however, they are
offset by either significant weakness (es) and/or risk(s). Correction of weakness (es), deficiency (ies) and/or risk(s) could
result in an acceptable proposal, without a major rewrite of the proposal. Proposal represents moderate to high risk.

RED (UNACCEPTABLE) Proposal is unacceptable; Government's minimum requirements are not met. The offeror's proposal
lacks evidence of capability to perform proposed effort. Numerous major inconsistencies, weaknesses, significant deficiency
(ies), and/or risk(s) exist. Proposal has minimal or no chance of success and correction would require extensive revision, a
major rewrite, to be rated as acceptable. Proposal represents a high risk.

          Factor 2: Past Performance. The Government will evaluate the offeror's past and recent performance on contracts
similar to this effort in order to assess the risk inherent in selecting a particular Contractor for award. The information provided
by the offeror in Volume III - Past Performance, and any other information the Government obtains from other sources, will be
used to determine a company's performance history on that effort.

(a) The Government will assess each offeror's past performance. The assessment will be a subjective, but unbiased, judgment
about the quality of the offeror's past performance. The Government will use its subjective assessment to determine an
offeror's relative capability and trustworthiness, and thus the relative reliability of the offeror's promises. The determination of
which offeror is the best value will reflect both the value of offerors' promises and the reliability of those promises as
determined, in part, by their past performance. Thus, the Government may value an offeror with a superior record of past

performance more highly than an offeror whose past performance is satisfactory, even though the offeror with the satisfactory
record made better terms in its proposal.

(b) The Government may base its judgment about the quality of an offeror's past performance on (1) records of objective
measurements and subjective ratings of specified performance attributes, if available, and (2) statements of opinion about the
quality of specific aspects of an offeror's performance, or about the quality of an offeror's overall performance. The
Government may solicit information from an offeror's customers and business associates; federal, state, and local government
agencies; and from other persons and organizations. The government reserves the right to limit the number of references it
decides to contact and to contact references other than those provided by the offeror.

(c) The performance attributes which the Government will assess include, for example: the offeror's record of conforming to
contract requirements, including the administrative aspects of performance; the offeror's reputation for good workmanship; the
offeror's record of forecasting and controlling costs; the offeror's record for adhering to contract schedules; the offeror's
reputation for reasonable and cooperative behavior and commitment to customer satisfaction; and, generally, the offeror's
reputation for demonstrating a business-like concern for the interests of its customers.

(d) The subfactors listed below are of equal importance.

                  Subfactor 1: Record of conforming to specifications and standards of good workmanship/customer service.

                  Subfactor 2: Record of containing and forecasting costs and accuracy of invoicing.

                 Subfactor 3: Record of adherence to contract schedules and including the administrative aspects of
performance and record of complying with the requirements of FAR clause 52.219-8, "Utilization of Small Business
Concerns" and FAR 52.219-9, "Small Business Subcontracting Plans" on any previously performed Federal agency contracts.
(FAR 52.219-8 and 52.219-9 are not applicable to small business offerors.)

                  Subfactor 4: Record of contractor's innovation and aggressiveness on performance issues

                 Subfactor 5: Record of contractor's ability to provide highly technical and currently available personnel in a
system engineering technical advisory role.

(e)       The offeror and its subcontractors and teaming partners will be evaluated as a team. The aggregate results of the
survey of customers, and any other information deemed appropriate, will be analyzed to identify performance trends. A group
consensus will be prepared which identifies the risks inherent in selecting a particular Contractor team for award, and the
offeror/team will be assigned a single risk assessment rating.

(f)      If the offeror is a new entity and none of the company principals have relevant work experience, the offeror will be
considered as having no past performance. In the case of an offeror without a record of relevant past performance or for whom
information on past performance is not available, the offeror's lack of past performance will be expressed as an unknown risk,
having no favorable or unfavorable impact on the evaluation.

(g)      The past performance evaluation will be expressed using the following color ratings:

BLUE Performance represents a low risk. Little doubt exists, based on the offeror's performance record, that the offeror can
perform the proposed effort. Adequate work experience of similar requirements, magnitude or scope. Contract management
(to include subcontracts) was considered outstanding or good; responsive to contract requirements. Technical and
management quality of performance was generally considered outstanding or good.

YELLOW            Performance represents a moderate risk. Some doubt exists, based on the offeror's performance record, that
the offeror can perform the proposed effort. Work experience of similar requirements, magnitude, or scope limited. Contract
Solicitation                  Document No.                Document Title                                                      Page 89 of 90

management (to include subcontracts) was generally acceptable; usually responsive to contract requirements. Technical and
management quality of performance was generally considered acceptable.

RED      Performance represents a high risk. Significant doubt exists, based on the offeror's performance record, that the
offeror can perform the proposed effort. Little work experience of similar requirements, magnitude or scope. Contract
management (to include subcontracts) generally marginal or unacceptable; frequently non-responsive to contract requirements.
Technical and management quality of performance was generally considered marginal or unacceptable.

CLEAR Level of performance risk is unknown. No work or no known work experience of similar requirements, magnitude
and scope.


Factor 3: Price and Price Realism. Subfactor 1. Price is the total offered price. Subfactor 2. Price Realism is significantly
more important than the total offered price. The government will evaluate price realism by comparing multiple factors as
described below.

                  Subfactor 1: Price. Price is represented by the total offered price and is, therefore, not evaluated nor given a
color rating; however, this is a meaningful consideration in the source selection. The Government will verify the Total
Proposed Contract price by multiplying the fully loaded rate for each labor category in by the estimated hours specified for
each category. The resulting totals will be summed by year. (one one-year base period, four one-year option periods). These
totals will be summed and added to the cost reimbursable items to arrive at a Total Proposed Contract price for each offeror.

                   Subfactor 2: Price Realism. Price Realism will be evaluated and a color rating assigned based on the criteria
below. Price Realism will be evaluated based on both summary and detailed labor price levels, and total compensation
package. Price Realism will evaluate the offeror's total approach for meeting the complete requirements of the solicitation
using price analysis techniques as specified in the FAR. The Government is seeking realistic and reasonable prices for a high-
quality SETA and Administrative Support approach, as well as demonstrated ability to manage the financial aspects of this
effort. Price realism relates to the offeror's ability to project prices which are realistic and reasonable, and which indicate the
offeror's understanding of the nature and scope of the work to be performed. The Government will analyze the fully loaded
composite labor rates (detailed price levels) and extended prices (summary levels) against an industry standard, which it will
derive from all proposals for each labor category, and the Independent Government Cost Estimate (IGCE). The Government
will consider the extent to which the proposed price at the detailed and summary levels are realistic against the industry
standard and IGCE, and the level of risk, considering other aspects of the offeror's proposal, e.g., compensation package, fringe
package, composite overtime rates, and use of uncompensated overtime.

         Overall value ratings will be expressed in the following color ranges:

RATING                      DESCRIPTION

BLUE (Low Risk)             Price realism represents a low risk. Little doubt exists that an offeror can recruit and retain
qualified personnel at the proposed compensation levels.


YELLOW (Moderate Risk)               Price realism represents a moderate risk. Some doubt exists that the Offeror can recruit
and retain qualified personnel at the proposed compensation levels.

RED (High Risk) Price realism represents a high risk. Significant doubt exists that the Offeror can recruit and retain qualified
personnel at the proposed compensation levels.



NOTE:             Evaluation of an offeror's proposal shall be based on the information presented in the proposal and
information available to the contracting office from sources deemed appropriate. Sources typically considered include Defense
Solicitation                 Document No.                Document Title                                                  Page 90 of 90

Contract Audit Agency, Defense Contract Management Administration offices, and other contracts with same firms for similar
items or services, known commercial sources such as Data Resources, Inc., Standard and Poor, etc. Proposals which are
unrealistic in terms of technical or schedule commitments, or unrealistically high or low in terms of cost, may be deemed to be
reflective of an inherent lack of technical competence, or indicative of a failure to comprehend the complexity and risks of the
proposed work and may be grounds for rejection of the proposal. If the proposed contract requires the delivery of data, the
quality of organization and writing reflected in the proposal will be considered to be an indication of the quality of
organization and writing which would be prevalent in the proposed deliverable data. Subject judgment on the part of the
Government evaluators is implicit in the entire process.
