This announcement and corresponding attachments constitute the only solicitation; quotes are being requested and a separate solicitation will not be issued.
Solicitation W912LQ-17-Q-0006 is being issued as a Request for Quote (RFQ). This solicitation document and incorporated provisions and clauses are those in effect through Federal Acquisition Circular (FAC) 2005-95, effective 19 Jan 2017.

The Virginia Army National Guard will conduct a Yellow Ribbon event on September 16-17, 2017 in the Northern Virginia Area (within a 50 mile radius of Alexandria, Virginia).
Award will be made to the vendor offering the best value to the government, considering price, technical and past performance. Technical and past performance are equal in weight, but when combined are more important than price. Multiple awards for lodging may be made if determined to be in the best interest of the government. However, all event functions (i.e. conference space, audio visual, catering, etc.) must be provided in one facility. See Submission Requirements included in this announcement for information required to be submitted for purposes of evaluating technical and past performance.
In order to be considered for award, vendors must have an active registration in the System for Award Management (SAM) database at www.sam.gov
The performance work statement included as an attachment to this announcement, or subsequent amendment, will be made a part of any resulting award.
The below pricing schedule may be used for pricing or you may use your own pricing schedule. However, your pricing schedule must clearly annotate pricing or the words, "not separately priced" or "no cost" for each requirement identified. Omission of no cost line items may cause your quote to be non-responsive. Unit prices shall include all applicable fees, to include any non-exempt fees/taxes. A Virginia Sales Tax exemption form can be provided to the successful contractor. In anticipation of questions of whether the government per diem rate is required, the following response is provided: The solicitation is being issued on a competitive basis. The rate utilized for purposes of award will be the rate quoted by the offeror determined to offer the lowest technically acceptable price. However, all-inclusive pricing shall not exceed the per diem pricing for the locality of the facility.
