                                   EVALUATION CRITERIA

       The Government intends to award a single purchase order on a best value basis to the
responsible offeror whose offer conforming to the solicitation will be most advantageous to the
Government, price and other non-price factors considered.

    For the purpose of evaluating offers, all non-price evaluation criteria, when combined
(including past performance), are approximately equal to price. The Contractor must meet all
criteria to be considered for award. Each offer shall include the offeror’s best terms, since
communications after receipt of offers are not anticipated, unless such communications are
necessary for the Government to fully understand the offer. Based on the results of its best-value
analysis, the Government intends to make award as a contract.

       The non-price evaluation criteria are as follows:

1. Technical Approach                                                           (400 points)
Degree to which the offeror’s proposed technical approach will optimize the accomplishment of
the requirements set forth in Attachment A Statement of Work.

2. Past Performance                                                                   (400 points)
Demonstrated performance on contracts and/or subcontracts performed during the Past three
years for food service, including active contracts/subcontracts, in the areas of quality of service,
cleanliness of facility, cost control, customer satisfaction, and successful contract management.

3. Management Plan                                                            (200 points)
Degree to which the offeror’s proposed management plan will optimize the accomplishment of
the requirements set forth in Attachment A Statement of Work.

   a) Appropriateness of the overall organizational structure which clearly delineates the
      responsibilities and lines of authority of the organization.

   b) Adequacy of the proposed management plan to utilize personnel and resources
      effectively, and to implement reporting requirements.

                                                              Maximum Possible: 1,000 points


   A written notice of award or acceptance of an offer, mailed or otherwise furnished to the
successful offeror within the time for acceptance specified in the offer, shall result in a binding
contract without further action by either party. Before the offer’s specified expiration time, the
Government may accept an offer (or part of an offer), whether or not there are negotiations after
its receipt, unless a written notice of withdrawal is received before award.

        Performance Questionnaires (see Attachment F) directly from client references by the
        closing time and date identified in the RFQ Cover Memorandum. The references shall
        submit the completed Questionnaires to the Contract Specialist, Mike Kreacic, via
        fax (513-487-2107) or email kreacic.michael@epa.gov. The completed Questionnaires
        should address contracts/subcontracts similar in scope, magnitude, and complexity to the
        requirement which is described in the solicitation. References may be contacted by the
        Government for further information on ratings.

        (d) If negative feedback is received from an offeror's reference, the Government will
        compare the negative response to the responses from the offeror's other references to note
        differences. An appropriate rating will be assigned to the offeror based on all the
        information.

        (e) If at least three (3) completed Past Performance Questionnaires are not received from
        the client references, the Government will make an attempt to contact another reference
        identified by the offeror, to contact a reference not identified by the offeror, or to
        complete the evaluation with those references who responded. The Government shall
        consider the information provided by the references, and may also consider information
Quotation Instructions                                                                           2 of 3
        obtained from other sources, when evaluating an offeror's past performance.

        (f) Attempts to obtain responses from references will generally not go beyond two
        telephonic messages and/or written requests from the Government, unless otherwise
        stated in the solicitation. The Government is not obligated to contact all of the references
        identified by the offeror.

        (g) If an offeror has no relevant past performance history, the offer should so state. If an
        offeror has no relevant past performance history, it will not be evaluated favorably or
        unfavorably on past performance.

        (h) Each offeror may describe any quality awards or certifications that indicate the offeror
        possesses a high-quality process for developing and producing the product or service
        required. Such awards or certifications include, for example, the Malcolm Baldridge
        Quality Award, other Government quality awards, and private sector awards or
        certifications.

              (1) Identify the segment of the company (one division or the entire company)
        which received the award or certification.

                (2) Describe when the award or certification was bestowed. If the award or
        certification is over three years old, present evidence that the qualifications still apply.

        3. Management Plan
        (a) The offeror shall submit a management plan for accomplishing the requirements set
        forth in the PWS. This plan shall include the following:

        (b) A description of the proposed management structure that will be provided to ensure
        fulfillment of the PWS requirements. If subcontractors shall be utilized, provide a
        description of their roles and responsibilities.

        (c)A staffing plan that identifies staffing resources needed to meet the PWS requirements.
         Where applicable, the offeror shall identify those positions which will be subject to the
        U.S. Department of Labor Service Contract Act Wage Determination (attached to this
        solicitation).

  (a) The Government and the Contractor understand and agree that the services to be delivered
  under this contract by the contractor to the Government are non-personal services and the
  parties recognize and agree that no employer-employee relationship exists or will exist under

  Protection Agency under its responsibility for good order, administration, and security are

  Government transportation. This is not to be construed or interpreted to establish any degree
  of Government control that is inconsistent with a non-personal services contract.

  employee relationship. Accordingly, entitlements and benefits applicable to such
  relationships do not apply.

              accuracy and completeness of the data within the CCR database, and for any
              liability resulting from the Government’s reliance on inaccurate or incomplete
              data. To remain registered in the CCR 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 CCR database to
              ensure it is current, accurate and complete. Updating information in the CCR does
              not alter the terms and conditions of this contract and is not a substitute for a
              properly executed contractual document.

              (2)

                      (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 Subpart 42.12, 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 CCR database;

                             (B) Comply with the requirements of Subpart 42.12 of the FAR;

                             (C) Agree in writing to the timeline and procedures specified by
                             the responsible Contracting Officer. The Contractor must provide
                             with the notification sufficient documentation to support the
                             legally changed name.

                      (ii) If the Contractor fails to comply with the requirements of paragraph
                      (t)(2)(i) of this clause, or fails to perform the agreement at paragraph
                      (t)(2)(i)(C) of this clause, and, in the absence of a properly executed
                      novation or change-of-name agreement, the CCR 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


SOL-CI-11-00087                                                                     Page 13 of 41
                      “Suspension of Payment” paragraph of the electronic funds transfer (EFT)
                      clause of this contract.

               (3) The Contractor shall not change the name or address for EFT payments or
               manual payments, as appropriate, in the CCR record to reflect an assignee for the
               purpose of assignment of claims (see FAR Subpart 32.8, Assignment of Claims).
               Assignees shall be separately registered in the CCR database. Information
               provided to the Contractor’s CCR 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.

               (4) Offerors and Contractors may obtain information on registration and annual
               confirmation requirements via the Internet at http://www.ccr.gov or by calling 1-

20.PRINTING (EPAAR 1552.208-70) (DEC 2005)

(a) Definitions.
  “Printing” is the process of composition, plate making, presswork, binding and microform; or
the end items produced by such processes and equipment. Printing services include newsletter
production and periodicals which are prohibited under EPA contracts.
   “Composition” applies to the setting of type by hot-metal casting, photo typesetting, or
electronic character generating devices for the purpose of producing camera copy, negatives, a
plate or image to be used in the production of printing or microform.
  “Camera copy” (or “camera-ready copy”) is a final document
suitable for printing/duplication.
  “Desktop Publishing” is a method of composition using computers with the final output or
generation of camera copy done by a color inkjet or color laser printer. This is not considered


SOL-CI-11-00087                                                                     Page 27 of 41
“printing.” However, if the output from desktop publishing is being sent to a typesetting device
(i.e., Linotronic) with camera copy being produced in either paper or negative format, these
services are considered “printing”.
   “Microform” is any product produced in a miniaturized image format, for mass or general
distribution and as a substitute for conventionally printed material. Microform services are
classified as printing services and includes microfiche and microfilm. The contractor may make
up to two sets of microform files for archival purposes at the end of the contract period of
performance.
   “Duplication” means the making of copies on photocopy machines employing electrostatic,
thermal, or other processes without using an intermediary such as a negative or plate.
  “Requirement” means an individual photocopying task. (There may be multiple requirements
under a Work Assignment or Delivery Order. Each requirement would be subject to the
photocopying limitation of 5,000 copies of one page or 25,000 copies of multiple pages in the
aggregate per requirement).
  (b) Prohibition.
   The contractor shall not engage in, nor subcontract for, any printing in connection with the
performance of work under this contract. Duplication of more than 5,000 copies of one page or
more than 25,000 copies of multiple pages in the aggregate per requirement constitutes printing.
The intent of the limitation is not to allow the duplication of final documents for use by the
Agency. In compliance with EPA Order 2200.4a, EPA Publication Review Procedure, the Office
of Communications, Education, and Media Relations is responsible for the review of materials
generated under a contract published or issued by the Agency under a contract intended for
release to the public.
 (c) Affirmative Requirements.
       (1) Unless otherwise directed by the contracting officer, the contractor shall use double-
sided copying to produce any progress report, draft report or final report.


       (2) Unless otherwise directed by the contracting officer, the contractor shall use recycled
paper for reports delivered to the Agency which meet the minimum content standards for paper
and paper products as set forth in EPA's Web site for the Comprehensive Procurement
Guidelines at: http://www.epa.gov/cpg/.
 (d) Permitted Contractor Activities.
       (1) The prohibitions contained in paragraph (b) do not preclude writing, editing, or
preparing manuscript copy, or preparing related illustrative material to a final document (camera-
ready copy) using desktop publishing.
       (2) The contractor may perform a requirement involving the duplication of less than
5,000 copies of only one page, or less than 25,000 copies of multiple pages in the aggregate,
using one color (black), so long as such pages do not exceed the maximum image size of 10\3/4\

SOL-CI-11-00087                                                                    Page 28 of 41
by 14\1/4\ inches, or 11 by 17 paper stock. Duplication services below these thresholds are not
considered printing. If performance of the contract will require duplication in excess of these
limits, contractors must immediately notify the contractingofficer in writing. EPA may then seek
a waiver from the Joint Committee on Printing, U. S. Congress. The intent of the limitation is to
allow ``incidental'' duplication (drafts, proofs) under a contract. The intent of the limitation is not
to allow the duplication of copies of final documents for use by the Agency or as distributed as
instructed by the Agency.
        (3) The contractor may perform a requirement involving the multi-color duplication of no
more than 100 pages in the aggregate using color copier technology, so long as such pages do not
exceed the maximum image size of 10\3/4\ by 14\1/4\ inches, or 11 by 17 paper stock.
Duplication services below these thresholds are not considered printing. If performance of the
contract will require duplication in excess of these limits, contractors must immediately notify
the contracting officer in writing. EPA may then seek a waiver from the Joint Committee on
Printing, U. S. Congress.
       (4) The contractor may perform the duplication of no more than a total of 100 diskettes or
CD-ROM's. Duplication services below these thresholds are not considered printing. If
performance of the contract will require duplication in excess of these limits, contractors must
immediately notify the contracting officer in writing. EPA may then seek a waiver from the Joint
Committee on Printing, U. S. Congress.
 (e) Violations.
   The contractor may not engage in, nor subcontract for, any printing in connection with the
performance of work under the contract. The cost of any printing services in violation of this
clause will be disallowed, or not accepted by the Government.
 (f) Flowdown Provision.
   The contractor shall include in each subcontract which may involve a requirement for any
printing/duplicating/copying a provision substantially the same as this clause.



21. EMPLOYMENT ELIGIBILITY VERIFICATION (FAR 52.222-54) (JAN 2009)

(a) Definitions. As used in this clause--

               (iii) Offered to the Government, without modification, in the same form in which
               it is sold in the commercial marketplace; and



SOL-CI-11-00087                                                                        Page 29 of 41
       (2) Does not include bulk cargo, as defined in section 3 of the Shipping Act of 1984 (46
       U.S.C. App. 1702), such as agricultural products and petroleum products. Per 46 CFR
       525.1(c)(2), ""bulk cargo'' means cargo that is loaded and carried in bulk onboard ship
       without mark or count, in a loose unpackaged form, having homogenous characteristics.
       Bulk cargo loaded into intermodal equipment, except LASH or Seabee barges, is subject
       to mark and count and, therefore, ceases to be bulk cargo.
"Employee assigned to the contract" means an employee who was hired after November 6, 1986,
who is directly performing work, in the United States, under a contract that is required to include
the clause prescribed at 22.1803. An employee is not considered to be directly performing work
under a contract if the employee--
       (1) Normally performs support work, such as indirect or overhead functions; and
       (2) Does not perform any substantial duties applicable to the contract.
"Subcontract" means any contract, as defined in 2.101, entered into by a subcontractor to furnish
supplies or services for performance of a prime contract or a subcontract. It includes but is not
limited to purchase orders, and changes and modifications to purchase orders.
"Subcontractor" means any supplier, distributor, vendor, or firm that furnishes supplies or
services to or for a prime Contractor or another subcontractor.
"United States," as defined in 8 U.S.C. 1101(a)(38), means the 50 States, the District of
Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
(b) Enrollment and verification requirements.
       (1) If the Contractor is not enrolled as a Federal Contractor in E-Verify at time of contract
       award, the Contractor shall--
               (i) Enroll. Enroll as a Federal Contractor in the E-Verify program within 30
               calendar days of contract award;

               Verify program, begin to use E-Verify to initiate verification of employment
               eligibility of all new hires of the Contractor, who are working in the United
               States, whether or not assigned to the contract, within 3 business days after the
               date of hire (but see paragraph (b)(3) of this section); and
               (iii) Verify employees assigned to the contract. For each employee assigned to the
               contract, initiate verification within 90 calendar days after date of enrollment or
               within 30 calendar days of the employee's assignment to the contract, whichever
               date is later (but see paragraph (b)(4) of this section).
       (2) If the Contractor is enrolled as a Federal Contractor in E-Verify at time of contract
       award, the Contractor shall use E-Verify to initiate verification of employment eligibility
       of--


SOL-CI-11-00087                                                                      Page 30 of 41
            (i) All new employees.
                    (A) Enrolled 90 calendar days or more. The Contractor shall initiate
                    verification of all new hires of the Contractor, who are working in the
                    United States, whether or not assigned to the contract, within 3 business

                    (B) Enrolled less than 90 calendar days. Within 90 calendar days after
                    enrollment as a Federal Contractor in E-Verify, the Contractor shall

                    business days after the date of hire (but see paragraph (b)(3) of this
                    section); or
            (ii) Employees assigned to the contract. For each employee assigned to the
            contract, the Contractor shall initiate verification within 90 calendar days after
            date of contract award or within 30 days after assignment to the contract,
            whichever date is later (but see paragraph (b)(4) of this section).
     (3) If the Contractor is an institution of higher education (as defined at 20 U.S.C.
     1001(a)); a State or local government or the government of a Federally recognized Indian
     tribe; or a surety performing under a takeover agreement entered into with a Federal
     agency pursuant to a performance bond, the Contractor may choose to verify only
     employees assigned to the contract, whether existing employees or new hires. The
     Contractor shall follow the applicable verification requirements at (b)(1) or (b)(2),
     respectively, except that any requirement for verification of new employees applies only
     to new employees assigned to the contract.
     (4) Option to verify employment eligibility of all employees. The Contractor may elect to
     verify all existing employees hired after November 6, 1986, rather than just those
     employees assigned to the contract. The Contractor shall initiate verification for each
     existing employee working in the United States who was hired after November 6, 1986,
     within 180 calendar days of--
            (i) Enrollment in the E-Verify program; or

            Administration (SSA) may terminate the Contractor's MOU and deny access to
            the E-Verify system in accordance with the terms of the MOU. In such case, the
            Contractor will be referred to a suspension or debarment official.




SOL-CI-11-00087                                                                    Page 31 of 41
               (ii) During the period between termination of the MOU and a decision by the
               suspension or debarment official whether to suspend or debar, the Contractor is
               excused from its obligations under paragraph (b) of this clause. If the suspension
               or debarment official determines not to suspend or debar the Contractor, then the
               Contractor must reenroll in E-Verify.

               but for minor modifications), performed by the COTS provider, and are normally

2. Contract Property Administration (CPAR)


a. EPA Delegation. EPA delegates all contract property administration to the EPA Contract
Property Coordinator (CPC). The delegations apply to all EPA contracts issued with or that have
the potential to receive, purchase or acquire Government Property or include the Government
Property clauses. In addition to administering all contract property, the CPC provides technical
expertise and assistance to the Contracting Officer (CO) and Contracting Officer Technical
Representative (COTR) relative to Government Property.

b. DCMA Re-delegation. The CPC may request support for contract property management
oversight, including property administration and plant clearance, from the Defense Contract
Management Agency (DCMA). If DCMA agrees to provide support, DCMA will notify the
contractor of the assigned property administrator (PA) and plant clearance officer (PLCO). The
DCMA PA is available to the contractor for assistance in all matters of property administration.


SOL-CI-11-00087                                                                     Page 33 of 41
Notwithstanding the delegation, as necessary, the contractor may contact the EPA CO. In the
event of a disagreement between the contractor and the DCMA PA, the contractor should seek
resolution from the CO. Unless, otherwise directed in the contract, or this document, all originals
of written information or reports, except direct correspondence between the contractor and the
DCMA PA, relative to Government property, should be forwarded to the administrative CO
assigned to this contract and the CPC.

c. Disagreements. Notwithstanding the delegation(s), as necessary, the contractor may contact
the CO. In the event of a disagreement between the contractor and the PA or the CPC the
contractor should seek resolution from the CO.

3. Requests for Government Property.

In accordance with FAR 45.102, the contractor shall furnish all property required for performing
Government contracts. If a contractor believes that Government property is required for
performance of the contract, the contractor shall submit a written request to the CO. At a
minimum, the request shall contain the following elements:

a. Contract number for which the property is required.

b. An item(s) description, quantity and estimated cost.

c. Certification that no like contractor property exists which could be utilized.

d. A detailed description of the task-related purpose of the property.

e. Explanation of negative impact if property is not provided by the Government.

behalf of the Government, with the exception of requests for material purchases. The contractor
may not proceed with acquisition of property on behalf of the Government until receipt of
written authorization from the Contracting Officer.

4. Transfer of Government Property. The Contracting Officer initiates the transfer of the
government property via a contract modification. The transferor (EPA or another contractor)
shall provide to the transferee, the receiving contractor, the information needed to establish and
maintain the property records required of FAR 52.245-1, as well as all of the applicable data
elements required by Attachment 1 of this clause. The transferee, the receiving contractor, should
perform a complete inventory of the property before signing the acceptance document for the
property. Accountability will transfer to the receiving contractor upon receipt and acceptance of
the property, in accordance with FAR 45.106.

5. Records of Government Property.

a. In accordance with FAR 52.245-1, the contractor shall create and maintain records of all
Government property, regardless of value, including property provided to and in the possession


SOL-CI-11-00087                                                                     Page 34 of 41
of a subcontractor. Material provided by the Government or acquired by the contractor and billed
as a direct charge to the contract is Government property and records must be established as
such.

b. The Contractor shall identify all Superfund property and designate it as such both on the item
and on the Government property record. If it is not practicable to tag the item, the contractor
shall write the ID number on a tag, card or other entity that may be kept with the item or in a file.

c. Support documentation used for posting entries to the property record shall provide complete,
current and auditable data. Entries shall be posted to the record in a timely manner following an
action.

d. For Government vehicles, in addition to the data elements required by EPA, the contractor
shall also comply with the General Services Administration (GSA) and Department of Energy
(DOE) record and report requirements supplied with all EPA provided motor vehicles. If the
above requirements were not provided with the vehicle, the contractor shall notify the designated
CPC and the Fleet Manager.

e. When Government property is disclosed to be in the management and/or control of the
contractor but not provided under any contract, the contractor shall record and report the
property in accordance with FAR 52.245-1.

6. Inventories of Government Property. The contractor shall conduct a complete physical
inventory of EPA property at least once per year. The contractor shall report the results of the
inventory, including any discrepancies, to the CO. Reconciliation of discrepancies shall be
completed in accordance with the schedule negotiated with the CO. See section 10 herein,
Contract Closeout, for information on final inventories.

7. Reports of Government Property. EPA requires an annual summary report, for each contract,
by contract number, of Government property in the contractor's possession. The annual summary
is due as of September 30th of each year, and upon contract termination or expiration.

a. For each classification listed on the EPA Property Report form, with the exception of material,
the contractor shall provide the total acquisition cost and total quantity. If there are zero items in
a classification, or if there is an ending balance of zero, the classification must be listed with
zeros in the quantity and acquisition cost columns.

b. For material, the contractor shall provide the total acquisition cost only.

c. Property classified as Plant Equipment, Superfund and Special Test Equipment must be
reported on two separate lines. The first line shall include the total acquisition cost and quantity
of all items or systems with a unit acquisition cost of $25,000 or more. The second line shall
include the total acquisition cost and quantity of all items with a unit acquisition cost of less than
$25,000.

d. For items comprising a system, which is defined as "a group of interacting items functioning
as a complex whole," the contractor may maintain the record as a system noting all components
of the system under the main component or maintain individual records for each item. However,
for the annual report of Government property the components must be reported as a system with
one total dollar amount for the system, if that system total is $25,000 or more.

e. The reports are to be received at EPA by the CPC by October 5th of each year.

f. Distribution shall be as follows:

g. Contractors are required to comply with GSA and DOE special reporting requirements for
motor vehicles. A statement of these requirements will be provided by the EPA Facility
Management and Services Division (FMSD) concurrent with receipt of each vehicle.

h. The contractor shall provide detailed reports on an as-needed basis, as may be requested by the
CO or the CPC.

8. Disposition of Government Property. The disposition process is composed of three distinct
phases: identification, reporting, and final disposition.

a. Identification. The disposition process begins with the contractor identifying Government
property that is no longer required for contract performance. Effective contract property
management systems provide for identification of excess as it occurs. Once Government
property has been determined to be excess to the accountable contract, it must be screened
against the contractor's other EPA contracts for further use. If the property may be reutilized, the
contractor shall notify the CO in writing. Government property will be transferred via contract
modifications to other contracts only when the COs on both the current contract and the
receiving contract authorize the transfer.

b. Reporting.

(i) EPA. Government property shall be reported in accordance with FAR 52.245-1. The Standard
Form, SF 1428, Inventory Disposal Schedule, provides the format for reporting excess
Government property. Instructions for completing and when to use the form may be found at
FAR 52.245-1(j). Forward the completed SF 1428 to the CPC. The SF 1428 is available at
http://www.arnet.gov/far/current/html/FormsStandard54.html. Superfund property must contain


SOL-CI-11-00087                                                                      Page 36 of 41
a Superfund notification and the following language must be displayed on the form: "Note to
CO: Reimbursement to the EPA Superfund is required."

(ii) DCMA. If the EPA contract has been re-delegated to DCMA, the excess items will be
entered into the Plant Clearance Automated Reutilization Screening System (PCARSS). Access
and information pertaining to this system may be addressed to the DCMA Plant Clearance
Officer (PLCO).

c. Disposition Instructions.

(i) Retention. When Government property is identified as excess, the CO may direct the
contractor in writing to retain all or part of the excess Government Property under the current
contract for possible future requirements.

(ii) Return to EPA. When Government property is identified as excess, the CO may direct the
contractor in writing to return those items to EPA inventory. The contractor shall ship/deliver the
property in accordance with the instructions provided by the CO.

(iii) Transfer. When Government property is identified as excess, the CO may direct the
contractor in writing to transfer the property to another EPA contractor. The contractor shall
transfer the property by shipping it in accordance with the instructions provided by the CO. To
effect transfer of accountability, the contractor shall provide the recipient of the property with the
applicable data elements set forth in Attachment 1 of this clause.

(iv) Sale. If GSA or the DCMA PLCO conducts a sale of the excess Government property, the
contractor shall allow prospective bidders access to property offered for sale.

(v) Abandonment. Abandoned property must be disposed of in a manner that does not endanger
the health and safety of the public. If the contract is delegated to DCMA and the contractor has
input EPA property into the PCARSS system, the EPA Property Utilization Officer (PUO) shall
notify the CO. The CO shall notify the contractor in writing of those items EPA would like to
retain, have returned or transferred to another EPA contractor. The contractor shall notify the
DCMA PLCO and request withdrawal of those items from the inventory schedule. The
contractor shall update the Government property record to indicate the disposition of the item
and to close the record. The contractor shall also obtain either a signed receipt or proof of
shipment from the recipient. The contractor shall notify the CO when all actions pertaining to
disposition have been completed. The contractor shall complete an EPA Property report with
changes, to include supporting documentation of completed disposition actions and submit it to
the CPC.

9. Decontamination. In addition to the requirements of the "Government Property" clause and
prior to performing disposition of any EPA Government Property, the contractor shall certify in
writing that the property is free from contamination by any hazardous or toxic substances.

10. Contract Closeout. The contractor shall complete a physical inventory of all Government
property at contract completion and the results, including any discrepancies, shall be reported to


SOL-CI-11-00087                                                                        Page 37 of 41
the CO. If the contract is delegated to DCMA, the physical inventory report will be submitted to
the EPA CO and a copy submitted to the DCMA PA. In the case of a terminated contract, the
contractor shall comply with the inventory requirements set forth in the applicable termination
clause. The results of the inventory, as well as a detailed inventory listing, must be forwarded to
the CO and if delegated, a copy to the DCMA PA. In order to expedite the disposal process,
contractors may be required to, or may elect to submit to the CPC, an inventory schedule for
disposal purposes up to six (6) months prior to contract completion. If such an inventory
schedule is prepared, the contractor must indicate the earliest date that each item may be
disposed. The contractor shall update all property records to show disposal action. The contractor
shall notify the CO, and, if delegated, the DCMA PA, in writing, when all work has been
completed under the contract and all Government property accountable to the contract has been
disposed. The contractor shall complete a FINAL EPA Property report with all supporting
documentation to the CPC.

Attachment 1

Required Data Element--In addition to the requirements of FAR 52.245-1(f)(vi), Reports of
Government Property, the contractor is required to maintain, and report the following data
elements for EPA Government property (all elements are not applicable to material):

Name and address of the administrative Contracting Officer; Name of the contractor
representative; Business type; Name and address of the contract property coordinator; Superfund
(Yes/No); No. of Subcontractor/Alternate Locations.

Note: For items comprising a system which is defined as, "a group of interacting items
functioning as a complex whole," the contractor may maintain the record as a system noting all
components of the system under the main component or maintain individual records for each
item. However, for the Annual Report of Government Property, the components must be
reported as a system with one total dollar amount for the system, if that system total is $25,000
or more.

(End of clause)


24. 52.245-9 -- Use and Charges (Aug 2010)

(a) Definitions. Definitions applicable to this contract are provided in the clause at 52.245-1,
Government Property. Additional definitions as used in this clause include:

“Rental period” means the calendar period during which Government property is made available
for nongovernmental purposes.

“Rental time” means the number of hours, to the nearest whole hour, rented property is actually
used for nongovernmental purposes. It includes time to set up the property for such purposes,
perform required maintenance, and restore the property to its condition prior to rental (less
normal wear and tear).


SOL-CI-11-00087                                                                       Page 38 of 41
(b) Use of Government property. The Contractor may use the Government property without
charge in the performance of—

       (1) Contracts with the Government that specifically authorize such use without charge;

       (2) Subcontracts of any tier under Government prime contracts if the Contracting Officer
       having cognizance of the prime contract—

               (i) Approves a subcontract specifically authorizing such use; or

               (ii) Otherwise authorizes such use in writing; and

       (3) Other work, if the Contracting Officer specifically authorizes in writing use without
       charge for such work.

(c) Rental. If granted written permission by the Contracting Officer, or if it is specifically
provided for in the Schedule, the Contractor may use the Government property (except material)
for a rental fee for work other than that provided in paragraph (b) of this clause. Authorizing
such use of the Government property does not waive any rights of the Government to terminate
the Contractor’s right to use the Government property. The rental fee shall be determined in
accordance with the following paragraphs.

(d) General.

       (1) Rental requests shall be submitted to the Administrative Contracting Officer (ACO),
       identify the property for which rental is requested, propose a rental period, and compute
       an estimated rental charge by using the Contractor’s best estimate of rental time in the
       formulae described in paragraph (e) of this clause.

       (2) The Contractor shall not use Government property for nongovernmental purposes,
       including Independent Research and Development, until a rental charge for real property,
       or estimated rental charge for other property, is agreed upon. Rented property shall be
       used only on a non-interference basis.

(e) Rental charge.—

       (1) Real property and associated fixtures.

               (i) The Contractor shall obtain, at its expense, a property appraisal from an
               independent licensed, accredited, or certified appraiser that computes a monthly,
               daily or hourly rental rate for comparable commercial property. The appraisal
               may be used to compute rentals under this clause throughout its effective period
               or, if an effective period is not stated in the appraisal, for one year following the
               date the appraisal was performed. The Contractor shall submit the appraisal to the
               ACO at least 30 days prior to the date the property is needed for nongovernmental



SOL-CI-11-00087                                                                      Page 39 of 41
              use. Except as provided in paragraph (e)(1)(iii) of this clause, the ACO shall use
              the appraisal rental rate to determine a reasonable rental charge.

              (ii) Rental charges shall be determined by multiplying the rental time by the
              appraisal rental rate expressed as a rate per hour. Monthly or daily appraisal rental
              rates shall be divided by 720 or 24, respectively, to determine an hourly rental
              rate.

              (iii) When the ACO believes the appraisal rental rate is unreasonable, the ACO
              shall promptly notify the Contractor. The parties may agree on an alternative
              means for computing a reasonable rental charge.

              (iv) The Contractor shall obtain, at its expense, additional property appraisals in
              the same manner as provided in paragraph (e)(1)(i) if the effective period has
              expired and the Contractor desires the continued use of property for
              nongovernmental use. The Contractor may obtain additional appraisals within the
              effective period of the current appraisal if the market prices decrease
              substantially.

       (2) Other Government property. The Contractor may elect to compute the rental charge
       using the appraisal method described in paragraph (e)(1) of this clause subject to the
       constraints therein or the following formula in which rental time shall be expressed in
       increments of not less than one hour with portions of hours rounded to the next higher
       hour: The rental charge is calculated by multiplying 2 percent of the acquisition cost by
       the hours of rental time, and dividing by 720.

       (3) Alternative methodology. The Contractor may request consideration of an alternative
       basis for computing the rental charge if it considers the monthly rental rate or a time-
       based rental unreasonable or impractical.

(f) Rental payments.

       (1) Rent is due 60 days following completion of the rental period or as otherwise
       specified in the contract. The Contractor shall compute the rental due, and furnish records
       or other supporting data in sufficient detail to permit the ACO to verify the rental time
       and computation. Payment shall be made by check payable to the Treasurer of the United
       States and sent to the contract administration office identified in the contract, unless
       otherwise specified by the Contracting Officer.

       (2) Interest will be charged if payment is not made by the date specified in paragraph
       (f)(1) of this clause. Interest will accrue at the “Renegotiation Board Interest Rate”
       (published in the Federal Register semiannually on or about January 1st and July 1st) for
       the period in which the rent is due.

       (3) The Government’s acceptance of any rental payment under this clause, in whole or in
       part, shall not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment of any rights it may have


SOL-CI-11-00087                                                                     Page 40 of 41
       against the Contractor stemming from the Contractor’s unauthorized use of Government
       property or any other failure to perform this contract according to its terms

(g) Use revocation. At any time during the rental period the Government may revoke
nongovernmental use authorization and require the Contractor, at he Contractor’s expense, to
return the property to the Government, restore the property to its pre-rental condition (less
normal wear and tear), or both.

(h) Unauthorized use. The unauthorized use of Government property can subject a person to
fines, imprisonment, or both under 18 U.S.C. 641.

                             Quality Assurance Surveillance Plan
                                    For Cafeteria Services

1. This Quality Assurance Surveillance Plan (QASP) has been developed to implement the
Cafeteria Services performance-based contract. It is designed to provide the EPA an effective
and systematic surveillance method for each listed service on the Performance outlined in the
contract.

1.1 Where appropriate, methods for administering and evaluating services not included in the
Performance Requirements Summary are to be developed by the QAE.

1.2 Any non-conformance with contract requirements is a “defect.” The term “defective” is used
to reference a service output in the Performance Requirements Summary that does not meet the
outputs’ associated standard.

1.3 The QASP provides a systematic method to evaluate the services the contractor is required to
furnish and not the details of how the contractor accomplishes the work. The plan uses a
combination of the surveillance methods, which adequately assures the government of the
contractor’s performance.

1.4 This QASP is based on the premise that the contractor, and not the government, is
responsible for management and quality control actions to meet the terms of the contract. The
Performance Requirements recognize that the contractor is not a perfect manager and that
unforeseen and uncontrollable problems do occur. Good management and use of an adequate
quality control plan will allow the contractor to operate within specified performance
requirements. The EPA is to be objective, fair, and consistent in evaluating contractor
performance against the standards.

                               How to Use the Surveillance Plan

2. Periodic Inspection- Periodic Inspection of the contractors work will be consistent on a
weekly or monthly basis.

2.1 Customer Feedback- Unsolicited feedback regarding customer complaints or issues will be
used as a partial contractor monitoring tool. The EPA shall also directly contact some customers
to determine if the contractor is providing service in accordance with the Statement of Work.

2.2 Contractor Reports-Reports generated by the contractor and provided to the Government
shall be used as an evaluation tool.

Performance Requirement Summary #1- A monthly minimum of 3(three) checks will be
made to ensure cleanness, orderly, sanitary, and well-organized in the cafeteria serving area,
kitchen area, dining area, salad bar area, storerooms, freezers, and trash cans.

____________________________________________________________________________________

ALL OCCUPATIONS LISTED ABOVE RECEIVE THE FOLLOWING BENEFITS:

HEALTH & WELFARE: Life, accident, and health insurance plans, sick leave, pension
plans, civic and personal leave, severance pay, and savings and thrift plans.
Minimum employer contributions costing an average of $3.59 per hour computed on the
basis of all hours worked by service employees employed on the contract.

VACATION: 2 weeks paid vacation after 1 year of service with a contractor or
successor; 3 weeks after 8 years, 4 weeks after 15 years, and 5 weeks after 25 years.
  Length of service includes the whole span of continuous service with the present
contractor or successor, wherever employed, and with the predecessor contractors in
the performance of similar work at the same Federal facility. (Reg. 29 CFR 4.173)

HOLIDAYS: A minimum of ten paid holidays per year, New Year's Day, Martin Luther
King Jr's Birthday, Washington's Birthday, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor
Day, Columbus Day, Veterans' Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day. (A
contractor may substitute for any of the named holidays another day off with pay in
accordance with a plan communicated to the employees involved.) (See 29 CFR 4174)



THE OCCUPATIONS WHICH HAVE NUMBERED FOOTNOTES IN PARENTHESES RECEIVE THE FOLLOWING:

1) COMPUTER EMPLOYEES: Under the SCA at section 8(b), this wage determination does
not apply to any employee who individually qualifies as a bona fide executive,
administrative, or professional employee as defined in 29 C.F.R. Part 541. Because
most Computer System Analysts and Computer Programmers who are compensated at a rate
not less than $27.63 (or on a salary or fee basis at a rate not less than $455 per
week) an hour would likely qualify as exempt computer professionals, (29 C.F.R. 541.
400) wage rates may not be listed on this wage determination for all occupations
within those job families. In addition, because this wage determination may not
list a wage rate for some or all occupations within those job families if the survey
data indicates that the prevailing wage rate for the occupation equals or exceeds
$27.63 per hour conformances may be necessary for certain nonexempt employees. For




http://www.wdol.gov/wdol/scafiles/std/05-2414.txt                            8/17/2011
                                                                           Page 8 of 10



example, if an individual employee is nonexempt but nevertheless performs duties
within the scope of one of the Computer Systems Analyst or Computer Programmer
occupations for which this wage determination does not specify an SCA wage rate,
then the wage rate for that employee must be conformed in accordance with the
conformance procedures described in the conformance note included on this wage
determination.

Additionally, because job titles vary widely and change quickly in the computer
industry, job titles are not determinative of the application of the computer
professional exemption. Therefore, the exemption applies only to computer employees
who satisfy the compensation requirements and whose primary duty consists of:
    (1) The application of systems analysis techniques and procedures, including
consulting with users, to determine hardware, software or system functional
specifications;
    (2) The design, development, documentation, analysis, creation, testing or
modification of computer systems or programs, including prototypes, based on and
related to user or system design specifications;
    (3) The design, documentation, testing, creation or modification of computer
programs related to machine operating systems; or
    (4) A combination of the aforementioned duties, the performance of which
requires the same level of skills. (29 C.F.R. 541.400).

2) AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLERS AND WEATHER OBSERVERS - NIGHT PAY & SUNDAY PAY: If you
work at night as part of a regular tour of duty, you will earn a night differential
and receive an additional 10% of basic pay for any hours worked between 6pm and 6am.
 If you are a full-time employed (40 hours a week) and Sunday is part of your
regularly scheduled workweek, you are paid at your rate of basic pay plus a Sunday
premium of 25% of your basic rate for each hour of Sunday work which is not overtime
(i.e. occasional work on Sunday outside the normal tour of duty is considered
overtime work).


HAZARDOUS PAY DIFFERENTIAL: An 8 percent differential is applicable to employees
employed in a position that represents a high degree of hazard when working with or
in close proximity to ordinance, explosives, and incendiary materials. This
includes work such as screening, blending, dying, mixing, and pressing of sensitive
ordance, explosives, and pyrotechnic compositions such as lead azide, black powder
and photoflash powder. All dry-house activities involving propellants or explosives.
  Demilitarization, modification, renovation, demolition, and maintenance operations
on sensitive ordnance, explosives and incendiary materials. All operations
involving regrading and cleaning of artillery ranges.

A 4 percent differential is applicable to employees employed in a position that
represents a low degree of hazard when working with, or in close proximity to
ordance, (or employees possibly adjacent to) explosives and incendiary materials
which involves potential injury such as laceration of hands, face, or arms of the
employee engaged in the operation, irritation of the skin, minor burns and the
like; minimal damage to immediate or adjacent work area or equipment being used.
All operations involving, unloading, storage, and hauling of ordance, explosive, and
incendiary ordnance material other than small arms ammunition. These differentials
are only applicable to work that has been specifically designated by the agency for
ordance, explosives, and incendiary material differential pay.

** UNIFORM ALLOWANCE **

If employees are required to wear uniforms in the performance of this contract
(either by the terms of the Government contract, by the employer, by the state or
local law, etc.), the cost of furnishing such uniforms and maintaining (by
laundering or dry cleaning) such uniforms is an expense that may not be borne by an
employee where such cost reduces the hourly rate below that required by the wage
determination. The Department of Labor will accept payment in accordance with the




http://www.wdol.gov/wdol/scafiles/std/05-2414.txt                            8/17/2011
                                                                           Page 9 of 10



following standards as compliance:

The contractor or subcontractor is required to furnish all employees with an
adequate number of uniforms without cost or to reimburse employees for the actual
cost of the uniforms. In addition, where uniform cleaning and maintenance is made
the responsibility of the employee, all contractors and subcontractors subject to
this wage determination shall (in the absence of a bona fide collective bargaining
agreement providing for a different amount, or the furnishing of contrary
affirmative proof as to the actual cost), reimburse all employees for such cleaning
and maintenance at a rate of $3.35 per week (or $.67 cents per day). However, in
those instances where the uniforms furnished are made of "wash and wear"
materials, may be routinely washed and dried with other personal garments, and do
not require any special treatment such as dry cleaning, daily washing, or commercial
laundering in order to meet the cleanliness or appearance standards set by the terms
of the Government contract, by the contractor, by law, or by the nature of the work,
there is no requirement that employees be reimbursed for uniform maintenance costs.

The duties of employees under job titles listed are those described in the
"Service Contract Act Directory of Occupations", Fifth Edition, April 2006,
unless otherwise indicated. Copies of the Directory are available on the Internet. A
links to the Directory may be found on the WHD home page at http://www.dol.
gov/esa/whd/ or through the Wage Determinations On-Line (WDOL) Web site at
http://wdol.gov/.

REQUEST FOR AUTHORIZATION OF ADDITIONAL CLASSIFICATION AND WAGE RATE {Standard Form
1444 (SF 1444)}

Conformance Process:

The contracting officer shall require that any class of service employee which is
not listed herein and which is to be employed under the contract (i.e., the work to
be performed is not performed by any classification listed in the wage
determination), be classified by the contractor so as to provide a reasonable
relationship (i.e., appropriate level of skill comparison) between such unlisted
classifications and the classifications listed in the wage determination. Such
conformed classes of employees shall be paid the monetary wages and furnished the
fringe benefits as are determined. Such conforming process shall be initiated by
the contractor prior to the performance of contract work by such unlisted class(es)
of employees. The conformed classification, wage rate, and/or fringe benefits shall
be retroactive to the commencement date of the contract. {See Section 4.6 (C)(vi)}
When multiple wage determinations are included in a contract, a separate SF 1444
should be prepared for each wage determination to which a class(es) is to be
conformed.

The process for preparing a conformance request is as follows:

1) When preparing the bid, the contractor identifies the need for a conformed
occupation(s) and computes a proposed rate(s).

2) After contract award, the contractor prepares a written report listing in order
proposed classification title(s), a Federal grade equivalency (FGE) for each
proposed classification(s), job description(s), and rationale for proposed wage
rate(s), including information regarding the agreement or disagreement of the
authorized representative of the employees involved, or where there is no authorized
representative, the employees themselves. This report should be submitted to the
contracting officer no later than 30 days after such unlisted class(es) of employees
performs any contract work.

3) The contracting officer reviews the proposed action and promptly submits a report
of the action, together with the agency's recommendations and pertinent
information including the position of the contractor and the employees, to the Wage




http://www.wdol.gov/wdol/scafiles/std/05-2414.txt                               8/17/2011
                                                                          Page 10 of 10



and Hour Division, Employment Standards Administration, U.S. Department of Labor,
for review. (See section 4.6(b)(2) of Regulations 29 CFR Part 4).

4) Within 30 days of receipt, the Wage and Hour Division approves, modifies, or
disapproves the action via transmittal to the agency contracting officer, or
notifies the contracting officer that additional time will be required to process
the request.

5) The contracting officer transmits the Wage and Hour decision to the contractor.

6) The contractor informs the affected employees.

Information required by the Regulations must be submitted on SF 1444 or bond paper.

When preparing a conformance request, the "Service Contract Act Directory of
Occupations" (the Directory) should be used to compare job definitions to insure
that duties requested are not performed by a classification already listed in the
wage determination. Remember, it is not the job title, but the required tasks that
determine whether a class is included in an established wage determination.
Conformances may not be used to artificially split, combine, or subdivide
classifications listed in the wage determination.
