Proposal Evaluation
Proposals will be reviewed and evaluated against the criteria listed below.

Technical and Management
  1. Overall scientific, engineering, technical, and management merits of the proposal.

  2. Overall socio-economic merits that include meaningful subcontracting opportunities for Small Business (SB); Small Disadvantaged Business (SDB); Woman-Owned Small Business (WOSB); HUBZone Small Business (HZSB); Veteran-Owned Small Business (VOSB); and Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Businesses (SDVOSB); and historically black colleges and universities and minority institutions.

  3. Potential contributions to Praxis's and/or our Government client's specific mission or problem.

  4. The offeror's capabilities, related experience, facilities, techniques, or unique combinations of these which are integral factors for achieving the proposal objectives.

  5. The qualifications, capabilities, and experience of the proposed principal investigator, team leader, or key personnel who are critical in achieving the proposal objectives.


The sole evaluation criteria for cost proposals is the realism of the proposed cost. Offerors should be aware that:

  1. All awards are contingent on the availability of funds from Praxis's government clients.

  2. Praxis is guided by the applicable Government regulations in its consideration of the proposed cost.

  3. Praxis will conduct a cost analysis in coordination with our Government client's technical representative to determine the reasonableness of the proposed itemized budget.

  4. A determination of the need for a pre-award audit for financial accountability purposes will be made on a case-by-case basis.

  5. Institutions of higher education and other nonprofit recipients are required to meet the audit requirements of OMB Circular A-133, Audits of States, Local Governments, and Non-Profit Organizations.
