Annex C1: Call-up Limitations - UNIX

This annex describes the Call-up Limitations of each Category and how they are established. Within each Category, a System will be ranked based on its evaluated price. A System’s ranking determines what its Call-up Limitation is and what volume discounts can apply to different Call-up values.

1.1 Evaluated Prices

  1. Evaluated Price Ranking: Call-up Limitations are determined by a System’s Evaluated Price. Unlike the Price Score (which was calculated a single time in order to award Standing Offers), a System’s Evaluated Price will fluctuate during the Standing Offer Period for a given Category and the Evaluated Price must be determined at the time of each Call-up to determine the applicable Call-up Limitation. There are a maximum of four ranks as follows:

  2. Evaluated Price: Evaluated Prices are calculated as follows:

    1. Price Score: For each System, the Evaluated Price (EP) will be determined for evaluation purposes in accordance with the following formula:

      1. EP = Price Score (PS) x Benchmark 1 Score (B1) x Benchmark 2 Score (B2), where:

      2. PS = Section 1 Total x 60% + Section 2 Total x 5% + Section 3 Total x 35%

      3. B1 = Minimum BUS in the category / System’s own BUS

      4. B2 = Minimum SS in the category / System’s own SS

      5. BUS = “number of benchmark users” from SAP SD Standard Application Benchmark Results

      6. SS = “SAPS” from SAP SD Standard Application Benchmark Results

  3. Mean Evaluated Price: Each Category’s Mean Evaluated Price is calculated using all Systems for all Offerors in the Category.

1.2 Rankings

  1. Category 1.0:

    1. Rank 1: The System with the Lowest Evaluated Price in the Category and any System with an Evaluated Price within 3% of the Lowest Evaluated Price.

    2. Rank 2: Any System with an Evaluated Price within 10% of the Lowest Evaluated Price in the Category.

    3. Rank 3: Any System with an Evaluated Price more than 10% higher than the Lowest Evaluated Price but within 10% of the Mean Evaluated Price of the Category.

    4. Rank 4 Any system with an Evaluated price more than 10% higher than the Mean Evaluated Price of the Category.

  2. Category 2.0:

    1. Rank 1: The System with the Lowest Evaluated Price in the Category and any System with an Evaluated Price within 3% of the Lowest Evaluated Price.

    2. Rank 2: Any System with an Evaluated Price within 10% of the Lowest Evaluated Price in the Category.

    3. Rank 3: Any System with an Evaluated Price more than 10% higher than the Lowest Evaluated Price in the Category.

  3. Category 3.0:

    1. Rank 1: The System with the Lowest Evaluated Price in the Category and any System with an Evaluated Price within 3% of the Lowest Evaluated Price.

    2. Rank 2: Any System with an Evaluated Price within 10% of the Lowest Evaluated Price in the Category.

    3. Rank 3: Any System with an Evaluated Price more than 10% higher than the Lowest Evaluated Price in the Category.

1.3 Category Call-up Limitations

  1. All limitations are inclusive of GST, HST and any applicable provincial disposal surcharges and volume discount.

  2. Call-ups made directly by Identified Users for Components and Other Related Items: Call-ups that include only Components (i.e., equipment that may be purchased without a System), and Other Related Items have a Call-up Limitation of the lesser of $25,000.00 or the associated System's Call-up Limitation.

  3. Call-ups made directly by the PWGSC Standing Offer Authority for Components: Call-ups that include only Components (i.e., equipment that may be purchased without a System) have a Call-up Limitation of $150,000.00.

  4. Call-ups made directly by the PWGSC Standing Offer Authority for Other Related Items: Call-ups that include Other Related Items (i.e., equipment that may be purchased without a System) have a Call-up Limitation of $50,000.

  5. Total Component Cost: A System's Components will only be available for purchase without a system if its Total Component Cost (TCC) falls within the evaluated price range, as detailed below:

    1. The TCC will consist of the sum of the ceiling unit prices for supplying all mandatory Components specified in Annex "B". For Servers, the TCC will be determined per Component Grouping (i.e. "A", "B", "C"...).

    2. In order to qualify the set of System Components, the TCC must be no greater than the mean (calculated using the "AVERAGE" function in Microsoft Excel 2000 SR-1) plus one standard deviation (calculated using the "STDEVP" function in Microsoft Excel 2000 SR-1) of the total TCC of the Systems/Groupings in the Category.

    3. The lowest TCC of the Systems/Groupings in each Category will NOT be used for purposes of calculating the mean plus one standard deviation.

    4. This evaluation will coincide with the schedule detailed in the article entitled "Product Substitution and Price Revision".

1.4 Volume Discounts

  1. Provided the Offeror agrees to the volume discounts below at the time of order, the PWGSC Standing Offer Authority may issue Call-ups, up to the described Call-up limitations.

  2. When a volume discount applies to a Call-up, the discount is applied to the current NMSO prices (meaning the NMSO price published on the CAG website on the day of the Call-up).

  3. The applicable GST, HST and any applicable provincial disposal surcharges must be added after the discount has been applied.

  4. The PWGSC Standing Offer Authority will require, before issuing any such Call-up, a written confirmation from the Offeror agreeing to honor the discount. If an Authorized Agent will be involved in the performance of the Work, an Authorized Agent Certification will be required.
