|Use this to draft answers that you will enter into eOffer. You must do this unless you have a Transactional Data Reporting offer. Do not upload this working file with your eOffer CSP. It will cause issues, especially if there are differences between your upload and inputted information.
|Commercial subcontracting plan model [DOCX - 39 KB]
|If your business is small, does not have physical offices located in the U.S., does not have subcontracting possibilities or performance in the U.S., or all of the above, you do not have to complete this.
Otherwise, you can download it complete it, sign it, and attached it in eOffer. If you are a large business, nonprofit, educational institution, or any business not designated as a small business, you must provide a subcontracting plan with your offer.
You will also need to compile the following information to input into eOffer.
You need to have the previous two-year period (audited, if available) with at least a balance sheet and income statement. You can explain anything that could reflect negatively on your business. If your company is new, and you don’t have two years of financial statements, you might be able to substitute other information.
You must address the four technical proposal factors outlined at SCP-FSS-001 Section II – Technical Proposal of the solicitation. Note that Factors One (Corporate Experience), Three (Quality Control) and Four (Relevant Project Experience) must be completed via a 10,000-character-limit narrative in eOffer. We will not consider uploaded documents to address these factors.
If you are proposing to offer services, you must submit a Professional Compensation Plan that explains your company policies on salaries and fringe benefits for employees who will work under your contract. You don’t have to disclose individual compensation, and general compensation practices that are printed in your employee handbook are often sufficient. Read FAR Part 52.222-46 for more info.
Previous notification of determination not to exercise an option letter
If you previously had a MAS contract that was canceled or allowed to expire due to low sales, you need to provide a copy of the cancellation letter or notification of determination not to exercise an option along with your detailed description of the steps you plan to take to generate sales through a new contract. See SCP-FSS-001 Section I – Administrative/Contract Data (iv) of the solicitation for more info.
Commercial supplier agreement
If you have any commercial supplier agreements from your manufacturer, submit them with your offer. If you are the reseller of a product, changes to the end user license agreement must have a signature of approval from the manufacturer. The agreements must be editable, preferably with portions that are federally non-compliant already removed.
Commercial Sales Practices Format (CSP-1)
If your SIN(s) are eligible, you can opt to participate in transactional data reporting. We will compare your pricing to like or similar items. You do not have to submit discounts your company provides or be evaluated under most-favored customer pricing.
If your SIN(s) are not eligible, or you choose not to participate in TDR, you will need to complete a price proposal template (see above table for templates) that indicates any discounts you currently provide to the commercial marketplace and what you are offering the federal government. We use this information to verify that you are offering equal or better pricing to us as the most-favored customer under the same or similar terms and conditions.
Commercial price list or market rate sheet
We use these documents to evaluate your company’s pricing. These show prices you provide your current customers, and they are different from the CSP-1.
Pricing support documentation
In addition to the price proposal template you submit, we need information to validate the accuracy of the data you input. Here are some examples of acceptable pricing support documentation:
- Published and publicly available catalogs.
- Price lists.
- Copies of invoices.
- Quote sheets.
Make sure there is a clear and relevant relationship between the supporting document and that you label each supporting document with the corresponding proposed product or service. If your current commercial price list or market rate sheet do not cover the period of past sales reporting on the CSP-1, you must provide a copy of the ones that covered the majority of that period.
If you provide a CSP-1, you need to demonstrate that the pricing is the same or better than what you currently offer your most-favored customer. If it isn’t, you must explain the rationale for proposing your price so the contracting officer can determine if the price is fair and reasonable. You must explain deviations from your CSP-1, including the circumstances and frequency of deviations.
