Offerors are required to submit one (1) Product Demonstration Model (PDM) size 22 ½ and a history of their experience/ past performance record. The Product Demonstration Model will be the most important evaluation factor and will be evaluated for conformance to the MIL spec, followed by Experience/Past Performance, then Price. Product Demonstration Models must be submitted with offers.

The Contracting Officer may utilize on-line reverse auctioning as a means of conducting price discussions under this solicitation. During the course of the on-line auction, offerors' proposed prices will be publically disclosed to other offerors and anyone else having access to the on-line auction. This public disclosure is anonymous, meaning that each offeror's identity will be concealed from other offerors (although it will be known to the Government), and only generic identifiers will be used publically for each offeror's proposed pricing (e.g., "Offeror A"). By submitting a proposal in response to the solicitation, offerors agree to participate in the reverse auction and that their prices may be publically disclosed, including to other offerors, during the reverse auction. An offeror's final auction price will be considered its final proposal revision. No price revisions will be accepted after the close of the reverse auction, unless the Contracting Officer decides that further discussions are needed and final proposal revisions are again requested in accordance with FAR 15.307.
