COMBINED SYNOPSIS/SOLICITATION FOR COMMERCIAL ITEMS General InformationDocument Type: Combined Solicitation/SynopsisSolicitation Number: HHSNCCOPC18-000011Posted Date: November 29, 2017Original Response Date: December 8, 2017Classification Code: 65-Medical, dental & veterinary equipment & suppliesSet Aside: No set-asidesNAICS Code: 541 -Professional, Technical and Technical Services/541990 -All other Professional, Scientific, and Technical ServicesContracting Office Address6707 Democracy Boulevard Suite 106 Bethesda, MD 20892DescriptionThis is a combined synopsis/solicitation for commercial items prepared in accordance with the format in Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) subpart 12.6, "Streamlined Procedures for Evaluation and Solicitation for Commercial Items," as supplemented with additional information included in this notice. This announcement constitutes the only solicitation; being requested, and a written solicitation document will not be issued. This solicitation is a Request for Quotation. The solicitation document and incorporated provisions and clauses are those in effect through Federal Acquisition Circular (FAC 2005-96). The associated North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS) code for this procurement is 541990, with a small business size standard of $15.0 The Clinical Center/Radiology & Imaging Sciences has a requirement to develop and validate a cost effective, easy-to-use and fully integrated navigation system for needle placement during image guided cancer diagnosis and treatment. Applications include but are not limited to biopsy, various thermal ablations (e.g. radiofrequency, cryo-, microwave, and laser ablation), and brachytherapy. Accurate diagnostic and/or therapeutic intervention depends on accurate needle insertion, which may be extremely difficult in certain settings. In standard CT-guided needle placement procedures, translation from a pre-planned needle angle to the actual intra-procedural needle insertion is estimated only with the physician's visuospatial abilities and experience. The goal of this contract is to improve needle placement in clinical practice. Image-guided needle insertion is a promising method for fulfilling the project goal, but the system must be cost-effective, accurate, and ergonomic to be clinically feasible. The proposed system's hardware includes a compact guidance platform that tracks needle-based interventional instruments, and provides navigation information to the clinician during the procedure. The system will be designed to assist with cancer treatment planning and procedure execution. The technology will be a compact tracker design that can clip onto needles and provide Micro Electro Mechanical (MEM) inertial-based tracking. The hardware will also have fewer sterility requirements and it will be easier to calibrate compared to existing electromagnetic and optical tracking systems. The calibration step of the device only takes a few seconds, making it practically negligible. The wireless clip design allows the navigation device to be easily attached to and removed from any standard needles, which gives the physician the highly desired freedom to benefit from the navigation while minimizing its impact on the clinical workflow. Our device allows for visual guidance during procedures by providing real-time angulation tracking of needles, catheters, or interventional tools. Visual guidance will improve targeting accuracy, and reduce procedure time and side effects. Outcome: The product of this contract is a fully integrated needle-guidance system prototype that is ready for human clinical trials. The system will be prototyped and evaluated in a live animal/human study to quantify the targeting accuracy and workflow for CT, Cone Beam CT, and Ultrasound-guided procedures. Specifications:A2. Engineering Specifications: A2. Engineering Specifications: 1. Wireless needle tracker The Government seeks prototypes of wireless needle trackers to address the challenges in needle placement procedures by accurately tracking the needle angular and positional information. The needle tracker design should be compact, wireless, and can be clipped onto any needle instrument (Fig. 1a-d). The system will provide 6 degrees-of-freedom (DOF) sensing at up to 40 Hz.

(h) Certification Regarding Responsibility Matters (Executive Order 12689). (Applies only if the contract value is expected to exceed the simplified acquisition threshold.) The offeror certifies, to the best of its knowledge and belief, that the offeror and/or any of its principals- (1) □ Are, □ are not presently debarred, suspended, proposed for debarment, or declared ineligible for the award of contracts by any Federal agency; (2) □ Have, □ have not, within a three-year period preceding this offer, been convicted of or had a civil judgment rendered against them for: commission of fraud or a criminal offense in connection with obtaining, attempting to obtain, or performing a Federal, state or local government contract or subcontract; violation of Federal or state antitrust statutes relating to the submission of offers; or commission of embezzlement, theft, forgery, bribery, falsification or destruction of records, making false statements, tax evasion, violating Federal criminal tax laws, or receiving stolen property; (3) □ Are, □ are not presently indicted for, or otherwise criminally or civilly charged by a Government entity with, commission of any of these offenses enumerated in paragraph (h)(2) of this clause; and (4) □ Have, □ have not, within a three-year period preceding this offer, been notified of any delinquent Federal taxes in an amount that exceeds $3,500 for which the liability remains unsatisfied. (i) Taxes are considered delinquent if both of the following criteria apply: (A) The tax liability is finally determined. The liability is finally determined if it has been assessed. A liability is not finally determined if there is a pending administrative or judicial challenge. In the case of a judicial challenge to the liability, the liability is not finally determined until all judicial appeal rights have been exhausted. (B) The taxpayer is delinquent in making payment. A taxpayer is delinquent if the taxpayer has failed to pay the tax liability when full payment was due and required. A taxpayer is not delinquent in cases where enforced collection action is precluded. (ii) Examples. (A) The taxpayer has received a statutory notice of deficiency, under I.R.C. §6212, which entitles the taxpayer to seek Tax Court review of a proposed tax deficiency. This is not a delinquent tax because it is not a final tax liability. Should the taxpayer seek Tax Court review, this will not be a final tax liability until the taxpayer has exercised all judicial appeal rights. (B) The IRS has filed a notice of Federal tax lien with respect to an assessed tax liability, and the taxpayer has been issued a notice under I.R.C. §6320 entitling the taxpayer to request a hearing with the IRS Office of Appeals contesting the lien filing, and to further appeal to the Tax Court if the IRS determines to sustain the lien filing. In the course of the hearing, the taxpayer is entitled to contest the underlying tax liability because the taxpayer has had no prior opportunity to contest the liability. This is not a delinquent tax because it is not a final tax liability. Should the taxpayer seek tax court review, this will not be a final tax liability until the taxpayer has exercised all judicial appeal rights. (C) The taxpayer has entered into an installment agreement pursuant to I.R.C. §6159. The taxpayer is making timely payments and is in full compliance with the agreement terms. The taxpayer is not delinquent because the taxpayer is not currently required to make full payment. (D) The taxpayer has filed for bankruptcy protection. The taxpayer is not delinquent because enforced collection action is stayed under 11 U.S.C. §362 (the Bankruptcy Code). (i) Certification Regarding Knowledge of Child Labor for Listed End Products (Executive Order 13126). [The Contracting Officer must list in paragraph (i)(1) any end products being acquired under this solicitation that are included in the List of Products Requiring Contractor Certification as to Forced or Indentured Child Labor, unless excluded at 22.1503(b).] (1) Listed end products.   Listed End Product Listed Countries of Origin ______________________________________ ______________________________________ (2) Certification. [If the Contracting Officer has identified end products and countries of origin in paragraph (i)(1) of this provision, then the offeror must certify to either (i)(2)(i) or (i)(2)(ii) by checking the appropriate block.] □ (i) The offeror will not supply any end product listed in paragraph (i)(1) of this provision that was mined, produced, or manufactured in the corresponding country as listed for that product. □ (ii) The offeror may supply an end product listed in paragraph (i)(1) of this provision that was mined, produced, or manufactured in the corresponding country as listed for that product. The offeror certifies that it has made a good faith effort to determine whether forced or indentured child labor was used to mine, produce, or manufacture any such end product furnished under this contract. On the basis of those efforts, the offeror certifies that it is not aware of any such use of child labor. (j) Place of manufacture. (Does not apply unless the solicitation is predominantly for the acquisition of manufactured end products.) For statistical purposes only, the offeror shall indicate whether the place of manufacture of the end products it expects to provide in response to this solicitation is predominantly- (1) □ In the United States (Check this box if the total anticipated price of offered end products manufactured in the United States exceeds the total anticipated price of offered end products manufactured outside the United States); or (2) □ Outside the United States. (k) Certificates regarding exemptions from the application of the Service Contract Labor Standards (Certification by the offeror as to its compliance with respect to the contract also constitutes its certification as to compliance by its subcontractor if it subcontracts out the exempt services.) [The contracting officer is to check a box to indicate if paragraph (k)(1) or (k)(2) applies.] □ (1) Maintenance, calibration, or repair of certain equipment as described in FAR 22.1003-4(c)(1). The offeror □ does □ does not certify that- (i) The items of equipment to be serviced under this contract are used regularly for other than Governmental purposes and are sold or traded by the offeror (or subcontractor in the case of an exempt subcontract) in substantial quantities to the general public in the course of normal business operations; (ii) The services will be furnished at prices which are, or are based on, established catalog or market prices (see FAR 22.1003-4(c)(2)(ii)) for the maintenance, calibration, or repair of such equipment; and (iii) The compensation (wage and fringe benefits) plan for all service employees performing work under the contract will be the same as that used for these employees and equivalent employees servicing the same equipment of commercial customers.
