1.12 Delivery Requirements

1.13 Sample Printed Materials

If an Offeror does not submit samples by the offer deadline, Chemonics reserves the right to deem the offer “non-responsive” and thereby disqualified from consideration.
1.14 Basis for Award
The award will be made to a responsible offeror whose offer follows the RFP instructions, meets the eligibility requirements, and is determined via a trade-off analysis to be the best value based on application of the following evaluation criteria. The relative importance of each individual criterion is indicated by the number of points below:
  • Technical – 20 points: Responsiveness to the technical specifications and requirements in Annex 1. In alignment with USAID Forward principles to strengthen local capacity and encourage local solutions by investing in local organizations, offerors must, to the extent feasible, work with local, Rwandan partners. Offerors are therefore strongly encouraged to present proposals for services which will be carried out entirely in Rwanda.
  • Design Capabilities – 20 points: Based on three illustrative/sample publications submitted by the offeror. Sample publications submitted by the offeror will be evaluated based on their aesthetic appearance, professional layout, and production.
  • Past Performance – 15 points: Based on the offeror’s prior experience in implementing similar activities. Offerors will be evaluated based on (1) references they provide and (2) number of years they have been serving customers for this type of printing.
  • Delivery – 15 points: The speed of delivery.
  • Price – 30 points: The overall cost presented in the offer.
Please note that if there are significant deficiencies regarding responsiveness to the requirements of this RFP, an offer may be deemed “non-responsive” and thereby disqualified from consideration. Chemonics reserves the right to waive immaterial deficiencies at its discretion.
Best-offer quotations are requested. It is anticipated that award will be made solely on the basis of these original proposals. However, Chemonics reserves the right to conduct any of the following:
  • Chemonics may conduct negotiations with and/or request clarifications from any offeror prior to award.
  • While preference will be given to offerors who can address the full technical requirements of this RFP, Chemonics may issue a partial award or split the award among various suppliers, if in the best interest of the Soma Umenye Activity.
  • Chemonics may cancel this RFP at any time.
Please note that in submitting a response to this RFP, the offeror understands that USAID is not a party to this solicitation and the offeror agrees that any protest hereunder must be presented—in writing with full explanations—to the Soma Umenye Activity for consideration, as USAID will not consider protests regarding procurements carried out by implementing partners. Chemonics, at its sole discretion, will make a final decision on the protest for this procurement.
1.15 Terms and Conditions of Subcontract

Chemonics reserves the right to make revisions to the content, order, and numbering of the provisions in the actual subcontract document prior to execution by Chemonics and the selected awardee.
