This announcement constitutes the only solicitation. Quotes are being requested and a written solicitation will not be issued. The evaluation of offers received in response to the solicitation will use a tiered or cascading order of precedence. Tiered evaluation of offers, also known as cascading evaluation of offers, is a procedure used in negotiated acquisitions when market research is inconclusive for justifying limiting competition to small business concerns or sub-categories of small business concerns. The Contract Officer (1) Solicits offers from both small and other than small business concerns that will be evaluated in the following tiered order: (a) service-disabled veteran-owned small business (SDVOSB); (b) veteran-owned small business (VOSB); (c) all other small business concerns; (d) other than small business. (2) If an award or a sufficient number of awards cannot be made at the first tier, evaluation of offers will proceed at the next lower tier until an award or a sufficient number of awards can be made. This is a request for quotations (RFQ). The quote document and incorporated provisions and clauses are those in effect through Federal Acquisition Circular 2005-94, 2005-95 / 01-19-2017. The associated North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS) code for this procurement is 339112, with a small business size standard of 1,000 employees..
