    Mandatory Technical Criteria

    Not applicable

    Point Rated Technical Criteria

    Refer to Part 4 Evaluation Procedures and Basis of Selection for Point Rated Technical Criteria requirement.

    Financial Evaluation

    Pricing will be scored based on a relative pricing formula using the rates set out in the Basis of Payment. Each bidder will receive a percentage of the total possible points allocated to price for the particular category it has bid on, which will be calculated in accordance with the following formula:

    Lowest price ÷ proponents price x weighting = proponent’s pricing points.

    Basis of Selection

    SACC Manual Clause (A0027T) (2012-07-16) , Basis of Selection - Highest Combined Rating of Technical Merit and Price

    1. To be declared responsive, a bid must:
    1. Comply with all the requirements of the bid solicitation
    1. Meet all mandatory technical evaluation criteria; and
    1. Obtain the required minimum of 45 points overall for the technical evaluation criteria which are subject to point rating.
    1. Bids not meeting (a) or (b) or (c) will be declared non-responsive.
    1. The selection will be based on the highest responsive combined rating of technical merit and price. The ratio will be 60 % for the technical merit and 40 % for the price.
    1. To establish the technical merit score, the overall technical score for each responsive bid will be determined as follows: total number of points obtained / maximum number of points available multiplied by the ratio of 60 %.
    1. To establish the pricing score, each responsive bid will be prorated against the lowest evaluated price and the ratio of 40 %.
    1. For each responsive bid, the technical merit score and the pricing score will be added to determine its combined rating.
    1. Neither the responsive bid obtaining the highest technical score nor the one with the lowest evaluated price will necessarily be accepted. The responsive bid with the highest combined rating of technical merit and price will be recommended for award of a contract.
