In a bid evaluation process, if a supplier submits exactly what we need plus “a little bit extra”, how to deal with it?

We need to evaluate the supplier’s bid according to the evaluation criteria established in the bid document. Under no circumstances can those “a little bit extra” be used as a reason to deviate from the criteria. Suppliers should not be awarded bonus points for the “a little bit extra”. Neither should they be deducted points for lacking the “a little bit extra”.
