The RFP/BAA is revised as follows:
"L. JUST IN TIME
This RFP contains special procedures for the submission of business management proposals. These special procedures are designed to reduce the administrative burden on offerors without compromising the information during the initial evaluation of proposals. Certain documents will no longer be required to be submitted with initial proposals, but will be requested at a later stage in the competitive process. Specifically, the travel policy, the annual financial statement, the total compensation plan, and certain types of cost/pricing information will only be required to be submitted from those offerors being considered for award after the technical review. The special procedures for submission of this documentation are set forth in detail below:
Travel Policy: The offeror's (and any proposed subcontractor's) written travel policy shall not be submitted with the initial business proposal. All offerors being considered for award after the technical review will be required to submit a travel policy as part of their final proposal revision.
Annual Report: The offeror's most recent annual report shall not be submitted with the initial business proposal. All offerors being considered for award will be required to submit a copy of their most recent annual report as part of the final proposal revision.
Total Compensation Plan: The offeror's total compensation plan shall not be submitted with the initial business proposal. All offeror's being considered for award will be required to submit a total compensation plan as part of their final proposal revision.
Cost/Pricing Information: The offeror's business proposal shall include the basic cost/pricing information specified in this RFP. In addition, the Government may require offerors included in the competitive range to submit additional information substantiating their proposed costs or prices. This additional cost/pricing information will be requested from those offerors being considered for award after the technical review, and potentially includes payroll documentation,vendor quotes, invoice prices, and/or any other information deemed necessary by the contracting officer to evaluate reasonableness of the price and to perform a cost/price analysis."
