How are proposals selected?
The DOTC-STEM Program Manager may review the ranking of the proposals and recommendations of the technical review panel. The reviewers' independent ratings will be reconciled into a single rating for source selection purposes and a consensus will be drawn. Recommendations will be made to the Selecting Official whereby; the technical factor is approximately equal in ranking to that of the past performance factor. And both the technical and past performance factors rankings are significantly more important than cost. The average rank order from the review panel will be the primary consideration for the Selection Official in deciding which of the new proposals will be recommended for funding to the Grants Officer on a best value basis. However, the Selecting Official will select proposals after considering the technical reviews and recommendations of the DOTC-STEM Program Manager.
