Every company that regularly competes for government contracts is familiar with the evaluation criteria usually contained in Section M of the solicitation or elsewhere in the solicitation for purchases of commercial items. These criteria generally address how the agency will evaluate the relative strength of technical capabilities, past performance, experience, key personnel, and price. Other evaluation factors also can be included, depending on the nature of the particular procurement.
These are usually broken up into Factors and Subfactors. A Factor is a specific characteristic that is tied to significant requirements that will have an impact on the selection of an offeror. A Subfactor is a descriptive element of a principal factor. The subfactors should be relevant to the selection of an offeror.
