Evaluation Criteria

Tel: (708) 786-7737 Contacts Survey

Common Evaluation Criteria

  • Understanding the Requirement.  Does the contractor fully understand the requirement?
  • Performance.  Was the contractor compliant with prior requirements for similar work?  Did the contractor perform within or below cost for similar work?  For orders for similar work, was the required work completed on time and in accordance with stated requirements?
  • Business Relations.  Is the contractor flexible, cooperative, proactive, and committed to customer satisfaction?
  • Socioeconomic status.  You may limit consideration to small businesses by including specific requirements (i.e. woman-owned, HUBZone, veteran-owned, etc.) in the evaluation criteria.  See the Small Business Set-Aside page for more information about setting aside an order for a small business entity.

In accordance with VAAR 815.304-70, Evaluation Factor Commitments, when placing orders against the non-mandatory 621 Professional & Allied Healthcare Staffing Services Schedule, VA ordering activities shall:

  1. Include provisions in negotiated solicitations giving preference to offers received from Veteran-Owned Small Businesses (VOSB) and additional preference to offers received from Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Businesses (SDVOSB).
  2. Use past performance in meeting SDVOSB subcontracting goals as a non-price evaluation factor in selecting offers for award.
  3. Use the proposed inclusion of SDVOSBs or VOSBs as subcontractors as an evaluation factor when competitively negotiating the award of contracts or task/delivery orders.
