Opportunity: Propose a design for an “Art Works” logo for the National Endowment for the Arts and produce a finished design that may be reproduced by the Agency in print and online
The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) invites contractors to submit proposals for a design for a new “Art Works” logo for the National Endowment for the Arts and then produce a finished design that may be reproduced by the Agency in print and online, as described in the attached statements of work, under the authority of Part 12 of the Federal Acquisition Regulation.
Below, you will find a Statement of Work/solicitation that requests proposals for designs that will give a graphic identity to “Art Works,” two words with three meanings that the NEA Chairman has been using to sum up the work of the Agency:
1. “Art Works” is a noun that refers to the works of art that artists create.
2. “Art Works” reminds us that a goal of art is to work on audiences and viewers to inspire, transport, and challenge them.
3. “Art Works” is a reminder that arts workers are real workers who are part of this country’s real economy. They earn salaries, support families, pay taxes. Artists are also entrepreneurs and placemakers, who revitalize towns, cities, and neighborhoods – both the economies and the ethos of them.
Questions concerning this proposal shall be submitted only via email to firstname.lastname@example.org before or by 5:00 pm (EST) on Wednesday, February 10, 2010. Please submit your proposals by Friday, February 26, 2010 at 5:00 p.m. (EST) via email to email@example.com. This RFP in no way obligates the U.S. Government to award a contract, nor does it commit the U.S. Government to pay any cost incurred in preparing and submitting your proposal.
The Government will award a contract resulting from this solicitation to the responsible offeror whose offer, conforming to the solicitation; will be most advantageous to the Government; price and other factors considered. In order to select the winning offeror, NEA will rank offerors from best to worst. In addition to the narrative assessments prepared by the Evaluation Team for each evaluation factor, a point scoring system will be used to rank all technical proposals. The point scoring system uses a rating scale of 100%. However, NEA will not select an offeror for award on the basis of a superior capability without consideration of the amount of its price. In order to select the winning proposal, NEA will rank each offeror by making a series of paired comparisons between them, trading off the marginal differences in capability with the marginal difference in price.
The Government’s estimate is approximately $25,000.00. The period of performance will be at the time of award through submission of the final product.
Proposals submitted in response to this RFP will be received by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Proposals that are faxed will not be accepted. Proposals must be received by the closing date and time stated above. Please refer any questions concerning this request to Latonca M. Harris at (202) 682-5476 or by email at email@example.com.
