7-2003.18 Transportation Transit Privilege Credits. In accordance with 2-201(a)Sec.B(xii), insert the following provision..

TRANSPORTATION TRANSIT PRIVILEGE CREDITS (1968 JUN)

If the bidder (offeror) has established with regulated common carriers transit privileges which can be applied to the supplies when shipped from the original source, bidder (offeror) is invited to offer to utilize such credits to ship the supplies to the designated Government destinations under commercial bills of lading, paying all remaining transportation charges connected therewith, subject to reimbursement by the Government in an amount equal to the remaining charges but not exceeding the amount quoted by the bidder (offeror) below. Such shipments under paid commercial bills of lading will move for the account of and at the risk of the Government, after loading on carrier's equipment and acceptance by the carrier (unless, pursuant to the "Changes" clause, the office administering the contract directs use of Government bills of lading). The amount quoted below by the bidder (offeror) represents the transportation costs, in cents per 100 lb. (freight rate) for full carload/truckload shipments of the supplies from bidder's (offeror's) original source via his transit plant or point to the Government destination(s) listed below by the bidder (offeror), including the carrier's transit privilege, charge, less the applicable transit credit (i.e., the amount (rate) initially paid to the carrier for shipment from original source to bidder's transit plant or point).

7-2003.19 FOB Origin (With Differentials). 2-201(a)Sec.B(xiii), insert the following provision.

[blocks in formation]

F.O.B. ORIGIN (WITH DIFFERENTIALS)

Notwithstanding the f.o.b. origin delivery terms set forth in the “F.O.B. Origin" clause of the contract, it may be advantageous to the bidder (or offeror) to submit f.o.b. origin prices in the Schedule which include only the lowest cost to the Contractor of loading for shipment at his plant or most favorable shipping point. The cost beyond such plant or point of bringing to the place of delivery and loading, blocking, and bracing on the type vehicle specified by the Government at the time of shipment may exceed the bidder's (offeror's) lowest cost when he ships for his own account. Accordingly, bidders (or offerors) may indicate below a differential which, as explained below, may be added to the offered price, such differential to be expressed as a rate in cents for each 100 pounds (CWT) of the supplies for one or more of the options, under the clause entitled “F.O.B. Origin," which the Government may specify at the time of shipment. Such differential(s), if specified below, will be considered in the evaluation of bids (or proposals) to determine the lowest overall cost to the Government. If, at the time of shipment, the Government specifies (normally on a Government bill of lading) a mode of transportation, type of vehicle, or place of delivery for which the bidder (or offeror) has set forth a differential, the Contractor shall include the total of such differential costs (the applicable differential multiplied by the actual weight on the Government bill of lading), as a separate reimbursable item on his invoice for the supplies. Under this clause (F.O.B. Origin (With Differentials)), the Government shall have the option of performing or arranging at its own expense any transportation from Contractor's shipping plant or point to carrier's facility at the time of shipment and, whenever this option is exercised, no reimbursement shall be made by the Government based on a quoted differential. Bidder's (or offeror's) differential(s), if any, in cents for each 100 pounds for optional mode of transportation, types of vehicle, transportation within a mode, or place of delivery, specified by the Government at the time of shipment, and not included in the f.o.b, origin price indicated in the Schedule by the bidder (or offeror), is (are) as follows:

(curload, truckload, less-load.
wharf, flatcar, driveway, etc.)

7-2003.20 Evaluation of Export Bids (Or Proposals). In accordance with 2-201(a)Sec.B(xiv), insert the following provision.

EVALUATION OF EXPORT BIDS (OR PROPOSALS) (1968 JUN)

A. Port Handling and Ocean Charges. In evaluating bids (or proposals), port handling

and ocean charges on file and published by the Military Traffic Management and
Terminal Service as of the date of bid opening (or the closing date specified for
receipt of proposals) and effective for the date of the expected initial shipment will

be used.
B. F.O.B. Origin, Transportation Under Government Bill of Lading.

(1) Bids (or proposals) will be evaluated and awards made on the basis of the lowest
laid down cost to the Government at the overseas port of discharge, via methods and
ports compatible with required delivery dates and conditions affecting transportation
known at the time of evaluation. Included in this evaluation, in addition to the f.o.b.
origin price of the item, will be the inland transportation costs from the point of
origin in the United States to the port of loading, port handling charges at the port of
loading, and the ocean shipping costs from the United States port of loading to the
overseas port of discharge (see D below). The Government may designate the mode
of routing of shipment and may load from other than those ports specified for evalua-
tion purposes.
(2) Bids (or proposals) will be evaluated on the basis of shipment through one of the
ports set forth in paragraph D below, to the overseas port of discharge. Evaluation
will be made on the basis of shipment through the port that will result in the lowest

cost to the Government. Ports of loading will be considered as destinations within the meaning of the term "f.o.b. destination" as that term is used in the “F.O.B. Origin" clause of this contract.

C. F.O.B. Port of Loading With Inspection and Acceptance at Origin

(1) Bids (or proposals) will be evaluated on the basis of the lowest laid down cost to
the Government at the overseas port of discharge via methods compatible with
required delivery dates and conditions affecting transportation known at the time of
evaluation. Included in this evaluation, in addition to the price to the United States
port of loading (see (2) below), will be the port handling charges at the port of load-
ing and the ocean shipping cost from the port of loading to the overseas port of
discharge (see D below).
(2) Unless bids (or offers) are applicable only to f.o.b. origin delivery under Govern-
ment bills of lading (see B above), bidders (or offerors) must designate, below, at
least one of the ports of loading listed in paragraph D below, as their place of
delivery. Failure to designate at least one of the ports as the point to which delivery
will be made by the Contractor may render the bid (or offer) nonresponsive.

PLACE OF DELIVERY:
Insert at least one of the ports listed in paragraph D below.)

D. Poris of Loading for Bid (or Proposal) Evaluation. Ports to be used by the Government in evaluating bids (or proposals) are as follows:

............... (Ports) E. Poris of Loading Nominated by Bidder (Offeror). The above named ports of loading

listed in D above are considered by the Government to be appropriate for this solicitation due to their compatibility with methods and facilities required to handle the cargo and types of vessels and to meet the required overseas delivery dates. Notwithstanding the foregoing, bidders (or offerors) may nominate additional ports of loading which the bidder (offeror) considers to be more favorable to the Government. The Government may disregard such nominated port(s) if, after considering the quantity and nature of the supplies concerned, the requisite cargo handling capability, the available sailings on U.S. Flag vessels, and other pertinent transportation
