The three (3) responsive offers with the highest number of points for each location will be recommended for issuance of a standing offer, provided that the total evaluated price does not exceed the budget available for this requirement and that the language requirements are met.

In the event of a tie on points, the Offeror with the lowest price will be recommended for issuance of a standing offer, provided that the total evaluated price does not exceed the budget available for this requirement.
