  1. Joel - I am indeed a CO working for a DOD activity. We currently do not rank proposals, but if we were to begin here is how I think we would do it: The SSA would accomplish a comparative assessment of all proposals remaining in the competitive range against all source selection criteria (to include cost/price considerations) and make the best value decision (identifying the winner) as required in the DOD Source Selection Procedures. Next, the SSA would have to acccomplish another comparative assessment amongst all remaining proposals and determine who the next best value offeror would be (o
  2. Thanks Vern - I appreciate your feedback and I agree that unless there is some other good reason to rank proposals I wouldn't want to spend the time requried to make the paired comparisons. I have never personally ranked proposals in order of winner, second, third, etc. I have only accomplsihed trade-offs to determine the best value "winner" using other than a numerical evaluation approach. Based on the lack of response regarding any agency ranking proposals as a standard practice, it appears that it isn't occuring, or isn't occuring often. I wonder if ranking is only accomplished if one u

To do this, however, the Source Selection Authority would have to acomplish a trade-off amongst all offerors (winner against all non-winner
  4. Is it standard procedure within anyone's agency to rank all proposals when accomplishing a source selection utilizing an evaluation rating method other than numerical? For example, if you utilize the new DOD Source Selection Procedures and you evaluate Past Performance, Technical Approach and Price, assigning a performance confidence assessment rating to past performance and a combined color code and risk rating to each technical approach factor (or subfactor, if used), does the Source Selection Authority make a tradeoff decision amongst all offerors to determine who wins, who is ranked secon
