52.219 - 4 - Notice of price evaluation preference for HUBZone small business concerns.
As prescribed in 19.1308(b), insert the following clause: Notice of Price Evaluation Preference for HUBZone Small Business Concerns (JUL 2005) (a) Definition. HUBZone small business concern, as used in this clause, means a small business concern that appears on the List of Qualified HUBZone Small Business Concerns maintained by the Small Business Administration.
(b) Evaluation preference. (1) Offers will be evaluated by adding a factor of 10 percent to the price of all offers, except (i) Offers from HUBZone small business concerns that have not waived the evaluation preference; and (ii) Otherwise successful offers from small business concerns.
(2) The factor of 10 percent shall be applied on a line item basis or to any group of items on which award may be made. Other evaluation factors described in the solicitation shall be applied before application of the factor.
(3) A concern that is both a HUBZone small business concern and a small disadvantaged business concern will receive the benefit of both the HUBZone small business price evaluation preference and the small disadvantaged business price evaluation adjustment (see FAR clause 52.21923). Each applicable price evaluation preference or adjustment shall be calculated independently against an offeror's base offer.
These individual preference amounts shall be added together to arrive at the total evaluated price for that offer.
(c) Waiver of evaluation preference. A HUBZone small business concern may elect to waive the evaluation preference, in which case the factor will be added to its offer for evaluation purposes. The agreements in paragraph (d) of this clause do not apply if the offeror has waived the evaluation preference.
o Offeror elects to waive the evaluation preference.
(d) Agreement. A HUBZone small business concern agrees that in the performance of the contract, in the case of a contract for (1) Services (except construction), at least 50 percent of the cost of personnel for contract performance will be spent for employees of the concern or employees of other HUBZone small business concerns; (2) Supplies (other than procurement from a nonmanufacturer of such supplies), at least 50 percent of the cost of manufacturing, excluding the cost of materials, will be performed by the concern or other HUBZone small business concerns; (3) General construction, at least 15 percent of the cost of the contract performance incurred for personnel will be spent on the concern's employees or the employees of other HUBZone small business concerns; or (4) Construction by special trade contractors, at least 25 percent of the cost of the contract performance incurred for personnel will be spent on the concern's employees or the employees of other HUBZone small business concerns.
(e) A HUBZone joint venture agrees that in the performance of the contract, the applicable percentage specified in paragraph (d) of this clause will be performed by the HUBZone small business participant or participants.
(f) A HUBZone small business concern nonmanufacturer agrees to furnish in performing this contract only end items manufactured or produced by HUBZone small business manufacturer concerns. This paragraph does not apply in connection with construction or service contracts.
