Notification to unsuccessful contractors/vendors will only be given if requested. When a contractor/vendor requests information on an award, which was based on factors other than price alone, the notification will include a brief explanation of the basis for the contract award decision, but will not include a point by point comparison with the successful quote.
NRL promotes a highly successful purchase card program with over 300 cardholders. Our cardholders represent scientists, engineers, support personnel and contracting officers. For additional information about participating in the purchase card program please contact our Agency Program Coordinator, via e-mail or phone at (202) 404-8165.
If a contractor/vendor has offered something different than the NRL requester has asked for, the Contracting Officer/Purchasing Agent will work with the requester to determine if the substituted item(s) or service(s) are acceptable.
The Contracting Officer/Purchasing Agent will contact the NRL requester for the purpose of determining if the delivery date quoted would be acceptable. If the requester relaxes the required delivery date, then all contractors/vendors originally solicited will have to be notified of this relaxed requirement and be permitted to submit a new quote.
It is the responsibility of the NRL requester to evaluate the technical aspects of a quotation and determine the contractor's/vendor's compliance or non-compliance with the specification requirements. After receipt of quotes, the entire quotation package, exclusive of prices, is forwarded to the requester for a written evaluation. This usually takes only a matter of a few days.
Contracting Officers/Purchasing Agents may evaluate quotations based on price alone or price and other factors (e.g. past performance or quality). If quotes are evaluated on price and other factors, these other factors will be identified and made clear in the RFQ.
Often times, contractors/vendors are sometimes willing to extend discounts based on quantity. The buyer will take this type of discount into consideration in the evaluation of the quoted price prior to award. However, prompt payment discounts offered, while greatly appreciated, cannot be considered in the evaluation of quotes.
