The notification will include a brief summary of the requirement, specific evaluation criteria for Phase I, general information about the evaluation criteria that will be used for the Phase II solicitation, and a request for each firm to provide the Government with responses to the evaluation criteria and a positive or negative statement of interest in proposing on the project. 2. The firms will be provided a closing date by which they must respond to the Phase I notification of intent for each project. Any pre-qualified firm that fails to respond to the notification of intent within the allowed time with all required information will not be considered for award. 3. After the specified closing date for receipt of interest, the Government will evaluate each firm's competitive qualifications based on the responses to the Phase I notification of intent, which will represent Phase I of the two-phase selection process. 4. Project-specific Phase II Request for Proposals (RFPs) will be sent to the five (5) most highly rated firms in the Phase I evaluation. The Government reserves the right to send project-specific Phase II RFPs to more or less than the five most highly rated firms in the Phase I evaluation. 5.

Project Specific Phase 2 Solicitation Procedures: 1. The due date for receipt of proposals will generally be 30 days after issuance of an RFP.

A price analysis will be completed and a cost analysis may be completed if determined to be necessary. 2.

The SSA's decision shall be based on a comparative assessment of all proposals against all evaluation criteria contained in the solicitation. The SSA's decision will be documented in a Source Selection Decision Document (SSDD) and will include the rationale for any business judgments and trade-offs made or relied on by the SSA including benefits associated with any additional costs. 5. The selected proposal will be awarded using BVTO procedures. The RFP may state an intention to award based on initial offers received without discussions.

      I wish Trump would just declare a national emergency already and get started on construction. The democrats are not going to give in to this. Ever. Those are a lot of votes they're going to lose if they these people can't easily get here. I just want to know why he waited till the dems had control of the house to start with this. Why not get the ball rolling when the right had both the house and the senate? Wouldn't that have made more sense?

        Of course the Dems won't give in to this, that's the whole point. Remember this is all strategic operational optics at it's finest. You have to think outside the box to keep up with Trump. Everyday that the Dems don't agree they lose more and more votes. He's allowing the Democratic party to destroy themselves. And of course he keeps trolling them to keep them mad. But Trump has them on the ropes. There is no way they can get out of the position Trump maneuvered them into without taking a big hit.

        Like I posted earlier 80% (Harvard poll) of the citizens (85% of Democrats) want the wall. Even Cher, as liberal as she is, blasted Nancy Pelosi for holding out on the money for the wall. Chris Cuomo (CNN) did the same thing.

        As for doing it earlier, it would not have shown the people what the Dems really stand for. But optics aside, Trump couldn't have gotten the wall before because we didn't have the Senate thanks to people like McCain, Flake and a few others. That's why winning the Senate was so important.
