(3) The reasonably foreseeable requirements for its future use, and

(4) Its scrap or salvage value.

(c) If the contracting officer decides to consider the residual value of special tooling or special test equipment in a competitively negotiated procurement, the solicitation shall give notice thereof and a statement of the reasonably foreseeable future requirements of the Government for the supplies in question, in order to afford offerors the opportunity to consider such residual value as a factor in making their proposals. If the solicitation does not contain such notice and statement but the contracting oficer decides to consider the residual value of special tooling or special test equipment after receipt of the proposals, he shall during the negotiations give all offerors within a competitive range a notice and statement as above, and shall permit them to make such changes in their proposals as they may consider necessary as a result of the addition of the residual value factor. § 13.505 Additional evaluation factors.

(a) If the furnishing of Government production and research property will result in direct and measurable costs and under the terms contained in the solicitation such costs are to be borne by the Government, additional factors, set forth in the solicitation either in the form of a dollar amount or a formula, shall be employed in the evaluation of bids or proposals. Such factors shall be limited to:

(1) The cost of reactivation from base package or storage;

(2) The cost of rehabilitation and conversion; and

(3) The costs of making such property available on a f.o.b. basis.

(b) If, under the terms contained in the solicitation, the costs of furnishing Government production and research property or making it suitable for use are to be borne by the contractor, as, for example, when such property is offered on an “as is” basis (see $ 13.308), no additional evaluation factors related to such costs shall be used.

(c) If measurable savings to the Government will result directly from the use of Government production and research property on the contract for which the solicitation is made, a dollar amount representing such savings shall be set forth in the solicitation and employed in the

evaluation of bids or proposals. Examples of such savings include:

(1) Savings occurring as a direct result of activation of idle tools being maintained in idle status at known cost to the Government; and

(2) Avoidance of the cost of deactivation and placing active tools in layaway or storage, or of maintaining them in an idle state where the prospective costs are known and firm decisions have been made that such tools will be laid away or stored if not used on the contract for which solicitation is made. Avoidance of the costs of initial lay-away or storage shall not be evaluated when such costs will merely be deferred by the proposed use. (31 F.R. 1051, Jan. 27, 1966) § 13.506 Solicitations description of

evaluation procedure. Generally, where Government production and research property is offered for use in a competitive procurement, the solicitation should provide that the user will assume all costs related to making the property available (such as transportation or rehabilitation costs), to avoid the need for separate evaluation of such costs. Where this is not feasible, or it is otherwise in the Government's interest, the Government may assume certain of such costs provided they are included in the evaluation of bids or proposals. The rental charges or equivalent factors to be used to eliminate competitive advantage, as well as all costs or savings to be evaluated, shall be clearly shown in the solicitation to insure that all prospective bidders or offerors understand the basis to be used for selection of the lowest bid or proposal and take these factors into account in preparing their bids or proposals.

§ 13.605 Retention of special tooling

and special test equipment. Upon termination or completion of a contract under which the Government has obtained title to or the right to acquire title to special tooling or special test equipment, the procuring activity shall review the Government's need for its continued retention. In addition, the procuring activity shall periodically review the Government's need for retaining all special tooling and special test equipment, not currently in use, to which it has title or the right to acquire title. In either case, consideration shall be given to the factors set forth in § 13.305–2(b) in determining the Government's need for retention of the special tooling and special test equipment. $ 13.606 Disposition.

(a) Disposition of Government production and research property shall be in accordance with applicable regulations and contract provisions (see, for example, $ 13.307). See Part 8 of this chapter for disposition of contractor inventory and Departmental regulations for disposition of surplus property generally.

(b) Contracts under which Government production and research property is provided to a contractor shall reserve to the Government the right to abandon such property in place, without any obligation to restore or rehabilitate the premises of the contractor. However, this right may be waived if the prior approval of the head of a procuring activity is obtained. The authority of the head of a procuring activity to grant such approval shall not be delegated. $ 13.607 Insurance.

When less than 75 percent of the total use of facilities is for Government work, consideration shall be given to requiring that the contractor procure and maintain insurance against loss of or damage to the facilities. If necessary, facilities contracts may be modified to require such insurance. $ 13.608 Property control and account
