12 EVALUATIONS FACTORS  
12.1 EVALUATION FOR AWARD  
The contract will be awarded to the responsible offeror whose offer is most advantageous to the District, based upon the evaluation criteria specified below. Thus, while the points in the evaluation criteria indicate their relative importance, the total scores will not necessarily be determinative of the award. Rather, the total scores will guide the District in making an intelligent award decision based upon the evaluation criteria.  
12.2 TECHNICAL RATING  
12.2.1 The Technical Rating Scale is as follows:  
12.2.1.1 0 - Unacceptable  
Fails to meet minimum requirements; e.g., no demonstrated capacity, major deficiencies which are not correctable; offeror did not address the factor.  
12.2.1.2 1 - Poor  
Marginally meets minimum requirements; major deficiencies which may be correctable.  
12.2.1.3 2 - Minimally Acceptable  
Marginally meets minimum requirements; minor deficiencies which may be correctable.  
12.2.1.4 3 - Acceptable  
Meets requirements; no deficiencies.  
12.2.1.5 4 - Good  
Meets requirements and exceeds some requirements; no deficiencies.  
12.2.1.6 5 - Excellent  
Exceeds most, if not all requirements; no deficiencies.  
12.2.2 The technical rating is a weighting mechanism that will be applied to the point value for each evaluation factor to determine the offerors score for each factor.  
The offeror’s total technical score will be determined by adding the offeror’s score in each evaluation factor. For example, if an evaluation factor has a point value range of zero (0) to forty (40) points, using the Technical Rating Scale above, if the District evaluates the offeror’s response as “Good,” then the score for that evaluation factor is 4/5 of 40 or 32.

If subfactors are applied, the offeror’s total technical score will be determined by adding the offeror’s score for each subfactor. For example, if an evaluation factor has a point value range of zero (0) to forty (40) points, with two subfactors of twenty (20) points each, using the Technical Rating Scale above, if the District evaluates the offeror’s response as “Good” for the first subfactor and “Poor” for the second subfactor, then the total score for that evaluation factor is 4/5 of 20 or 16 for the first subfactor plus 1/5 of 20 or 4 for the second subfactor, for a total of 20 for the entire factor.
 
12.2.3 EVALUATION OF PROMPT PAYMENT DISCOUNT  
12.3 EVALUATION CRITERIA  
The total sum of the maximum points for Technical Criteria and Price Criterion must be 100 points.
Proposals will be evaluated based on the following evaluation factors in the manner described below:
 
12.3.1 TECHNICAL CRITERIA (____Points Maximum)  
Note - Add Maximum Points to the Section Heading. Be sure to insert here a thorough description of each evaluation factor.  Examples of representative Technical Criteria can be found on www.ocp.dc.gov, click on OCP Policies and Procedures under the heading “e-Library”, then click on “Examples of Technical Criteria”  
12.3.2 PRICE CRITERION         (____Points Maximum)  
Be sure to update the Points Maximum for the section
The price evaluation will be objective. The offeror with the lowest price will receive the maximum price points. All other proposals will receive a proportionately lower total score. The following formula will be used to determine each offeror's evaluated price score:

12.4 EVALUATION OF OPTION YEARS

12 EVALUATIONS FACTORS 0%
12.1 EVALUATION FOR AWARD 0%
The contract will be awarded to the responsible offeror whose offer is most advantageous to the District, based upon the evaluation criteria specified below. Thus, while the points in the evaluation criteria indicate their relative importance, the total scores will not necessarily be determinative of the award. Rather, the total scores will guide the District in making an intelligent award decision based upon the evaluation criteria.  
12.2 TECHNICAL RATING 0%
12.2.1 The Technical Rating Scale is as follows: 0%
12.2.1.1 0 - Unacceptable 0%
Fails to meet minimum requirements; e.g., no demonstrated capacity, major deficiencies which are not correctable; offeror did not address the factor.  
12.2.1.2 1 - Poor 0%
Marginally meets minimum requirements; major deficiencies which may be correctable.  
12.2.1.3 2 - Minimally Acceptable 0%
Marginally meets minimum requirements; minor deficiencies which may be correctable.  
12.2.1.4 3 - Acceptable 0%
Meets requirements; no deficiencies.  
12.2.1.5 4 - Good 0%
Meets requirements and exceeds some requirements; no deficiencies.  
12.2.1.6 5 - Excellent 0%
Exceeds most, if not all requirements; no deficiencies.  
12.2.2 The technical rating is a weighting mechanism that will be applied to the point value for each evaluation factor to determine the offerors score for each factor. 0%
The offeror’s total technical score will be determined by adding the offeror’s score in each evaluation factor. For example, if an evaluation factor has a point value range of zero (0) to forty (40) points, using the Technical Rating Scale above, if the District evaluates the offeror’s response as “Good,” then the score for that evaluation factor is 4/5 of 40 or 32.

If subfactors are applied, the offeror’s total technical score will be determined by adding the offeror’s score for each subfactor. For example, if an evaluation factor has a point value range of zero (0) to forty (40) points, with two subfactors of twenty (20) points each, using the Technical Rating Scale above, if the District evaluates the offeror’s response as “Good” for the first subfactor and “Poor” for the second subfactor, then the total score for that evaluation factor is 4/5 of 20 or 16 for the first subfactor plus 1/5 of 20 or 4 for the second subfactor, for a total of 20 for the entire factor.
 
12.2.3 EVALUATION OF PROMPT PAYMENT DISCOUNT 0%

Be sure to update the Points Maximum for the section
The price evaluation will be objective. The offeror with the lowest price will receive the maximum price points. All other proposals will receive a proportionately lower total score. The following formula will be used to determine each offeror's evaluated price score:
