March 18th 2015 Requisition #: 15-007290 Notice of Intent to Sole Source The National Institute of Health Office of Purchasing and Contracts intends to negotiate a Brand Name one year standing order to a vendor who can provide various Becton, Dickinson and Company (BD) kits, reagents and other consumables for which the government intends to solicit and negotiate with under the authority of 6.302-1. The North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code for this acquisition is 325413, and the size standard is 500 Employees This notice of intent to award is not a request for competitive quotations. Interested concerns capable of providing the same or similar products or services as described in this notice may submit a capability statement outlining their capabilities. No solicitation is available. Information received will be evaluated for the purpose of determining whether to conduct a competitive procurement. Capability Statements must be received within the time set forth in this synopsis to be considered by the Government. A determination to compete this proposed contract based on responses to this notice is solely within the discretion of the Government. The following verbiage is directly from the Justification for Other Than Full and Open Competition (JOFOC). The Department of Laboratory Medicine requires various kits, reagents and other consumables used in the diagnosis and monitoring of patients with hematological disorders. The testing done using these antibodies and reagents is for basic clinical care, research, and advancing the science and applications associated with diagnostic analysis of hematological disorders such as PNH, Large Cell Granulomas and Myeloproliforative diseases. The product must be manufactured by BD as it is the only authorized reagents, commodities and kits to fully function with the BD FACSCanto II that is validated and used in the Clinical Center. In accordance with FAR 6.203-1, only one source available, no substitutions possible (Also see Brand Name FAR 11.105). The nature of harm that would be brought to patient care and NIH CC DPM if NIH does not have continuity of service in place would be that NIH CC patients could stand the risk of not receiving the best possible treatment. Many of these patients are here at the NIHCC on research/testing due to their unique conditions/diseases. Once our laboratory receives the reagents, we must perform quality control testing before we can use the new reagents for patient testing. Any delay in acquiring the products would exponentially delay the reporting of critical patient results and possibly delay patient care. Establishing a standing order in which the supplying company ships the antibodies and reagents upon request reduces time spent on generating all the paperwork needed to purchase the antibodies and reagents on a smaller scale and ensures the timely delivery of antibodies and reagents thus reducing the chance of patient testing delays. The following is the anticipated yearly amounts or commodities, kits and reagents for the BD FACSCanto II that is used the patient care testing. The items will be called in as needed. The following requirements for quoting are • Pricing must be good for 1 year from the date of the award. Anticipated period of performance is April 6th, 2015 - April 5th, 2016. • Must show list price and discounted price • Vendors must quote at a quantity of one (1) as quantities may change • Vendor must state freight charges/term. Freight may be included in cost of items.

(See exceptions under II., below.) Untimely notification will be taken into account in the computation of any interest penalty owed the Contractor. 1. Vendor/Contractor: Name, Address, Point of Contact for the invoice (Name, title, telephone number, e-mail and mailing address of point of contact). 2. Remit-to address (Name and complete mailing address to send payment). 3. Remittance name must match exactly with name on original order/contract. If the Remittance name differs from the Legal Business Name, then both names must appear on the invoice. 4. Invoice date. 5. Unique invoice #s for all invoices per vendor regardless of site. 6.

The VIN is the number that appears after the contractor's name on the face page of the award document. 9. Identify that payment is to be made using a three-way match. 10. Description of supplies/services that match the description on the award, by line billed.* 11. Freight or delivery charge must be billed as shown on the award.

Quantity, Unit of Measure, Unit Price, Extended Price of supplies delivered or services performed, as applicable, and that match the line items specified in the award.* * NOTE: If your invoice must differ from the line items on the award, please contact the Contracting Officer before submitting the invoice. A modification to the order or contract may be needed before the invoice can be submitted and paid. B. Shipping costs will be reimbursed only if authorized by the Contract/Purchase Order. If authorized, shipping costs must be itemized. Where shipping costs exceed $100, the invoice must be supported by a bill of lading or a paid carrier's receipt. C. Mail an original copy of the itemized invoice to: National Institutes of Health Office of Financial Management, Commercial Accounts 2115 East Jefferson Street, Room 4B-432, MSC 8500 Bethesda, MD 20892-8500 For inquiries regarding payment call: (301) 496-6088 In order to facilitate the prompt payment of invoices, it is recommended that the vendor submit a photocopy of the invoice to the "Consignee" designated for the acquisition in blocks 6A - 6E of the face page of the Order/Award document.

March 23rd 2015 Requisition #: 15-008846 Notice of Intent to Sole Source The National Institute of Health Office of Purchasing and Contracts intends to negotiate and 1 year maintenance contract to QIAGEN INC. VALENCIA, CA 91355 to provide preventative maintenance for which the government intends to solicit and negotiate with only one source under the authority of 6.302-1. The North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code for this acquisition is 325413, and the size standard is 500 Employees This notice of intent to award is not a request for competitive quotations. Interested concerns capable of providing the same or similar products or services as described in this notice may submit a capability statement outlining their capabilities. No solicitation is available. Information received will be evaluated for the purpose of determining whether to conduct a competitive procurement. Capability Statements must be received within the time set forth in this synopsis to be considered by the Government. A determination to compete this proposed contract based on responses to this notice is solely within the discretion of the Government. The following verbiage is directly from the Justification for Other Than Full and Open Competition (JOFOC). The Department of Laboratory Medicine requires preventative maintenance from Qiagen needed for use of the following instruments that are already on site: Rotorgene 6000 (S/N R070741) QIAgility (S/N 74) QIAgility (S/N 66) QIAsymphonySP (S/N 12181) QIAsymphony SP (S/N 14369) These instruments are in use for current clinical testing for the Microbiology Service in the Department of Laboratory Medicine. The instrumentation provides rapid, efficient, and sensitive extraction of nucleic acid (DNA) from clinical samples. This platform has allowed us to develop novel tests to detect organisms in patient samples. Proper maintenance of the equipment and a reliable instrument exchange program is critical to providing these important patient care results. Inability to use this instrumentation could result in unnecessary isolation of patients or lack of isolation for infectious diseases that might be spread to hospital personnel or other patients. The availability of this properly operating instrument is critical in decreasing the time to receive results, improving clinical care. The proposed vendor, Qiagen, Inc., is the sole manufacturer, vendor and service provider for the Rotorgene, QIAgility and QIAsymphony SP instruments. These systems are not sold in the United States by any other distributor or other third parties. The manufacture also does not give the authority for third parties to maintain or service there equipment. These instruments have proven reliability and offer the flexibility to run our PCR assays with results attained within 70 minutes. Our laboratory can thus incorporate specialty testing into routine workloads improving productivity and efficiency. Since there is only one supplier that can maintain the existing instrumentation than it is deemed to be in the Government's best interest to award this requirement to Qiagen Inc. The government does not have the ability to use a third insurance party for this requirement. All responses are due to the Contract Specialist within 15 calendar days from the date of this synopsis.

As prescribed in 13.404, insert the following clause: Invoice and Payment Provisions (10/2013) The following clause is applicable to all Purchase Orders, Task or Delivery Orders, and Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) Calls: Prompt Payment (Jul 2013) FAR 52.232-25. Highlights of this clause and NIH implementation requirements follow: I Invoice Requirements A. An invoice is the Contractor's bill or written request for payment under the contract for supplies delivered or services performed. A proper invoice is an "Original" which must include the items listed in subdivisions 1 through 12, below, in addition to the requirements of FAR 32.9. If the invoice does not comply with these requirements, the Contractor will be notified of the defect within 7 days after the date the designated billing office received the invoice (3 days for meat, meat food products, or fish, and 5 days for perishable agricultural commodities, dairy products, edible fats or oils) with a statement of the reasons why it is not a proper invoice. (See exceptions under II., below.) Untimely notification will be taken into account in the computation of any interest penalty owed the Contractor. 1. Vendor/Contractor: Name, Address, Point of Contact for the invoice (Name, title, telephone number, e-mail and mailing address of point of contact). 2. Remit-to address (Name and complete mailing address to send payment). 3. Remittance name must match exactly with name on original order/contract. If the Remittance name differs from the Legal Business Name, then both names must appear on the invoice. 4. Invoice date. 5. Unique invoice #s for all invoices per vendor regardless of site. 6. NBS document number formats must be included for awards created in the NBS: Contract Number; Purchase Order Number; Task or Delivery Order Number and Source Award Number (e.g., Indefinite Delivery Contract number; General Services Administration number); or, BPA Call Number and BPA Parent Award Number. 7. Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) or DUNS + 4 as registered in the Central Contractor Registration (CCR). 8. Federal Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN). In those exceptional cases where a contractor does not have a DUNS number or TIN, a Vendor Identification Number (VIN) must be referenced on the invoice. The VIN is the number that appears after the contractor's name on the face page of the award document. 9. Identify that payment is to be made using a three-way match. 10. Description of supplies/services that match the description on the award, by line billed.* 11. Freight or delivery charge must be billed as shown on the award. If it is included in the item price do not bill it separately. If identified in the award as a separate line item, it must be billed separately. 12. Quantity, Unit of Measure, Unit Price, Extended Price of supplies delivered or services performed, as applicable, and that match the line items specified in the award.* * NOTE: If your invoice must differ from the line items on the award, please contact the Contracting Officer before submitting the invoice. A modification to the order or contract may be needed before the invoice can be submitted and paid. B. Shipping costs will be reimbursed only if authorized by the Contract/Purchase Order. If authorized, shipping costs must be itemized. Where shipping costs exceed $100, the invoice must be supported by a bill of lading or a paid carrier's receipt. C. Mail an original copy of the itemized invoice to: National Institutes of Health Office of Financial Management, Commercial Accounts 2115 East Jefferson Street, Room 4B-432, MSC 8500 Bethesda, MD 20892-8500 For inquiries regarding payment call: (301) 496-6088 In order to facilitate the prompt payment of invoices, it is recommended that the vendor submit a photocopy of the invoice to the "Consignee" designated for the acquisition in blocks 6A - 6E of the face page of the Order/Award document. II. Invoice Payment A. Except as indicated in paragraph B., below, the due date for making invoice payments by the designated payment office shall be the later of the following two events: 1. The 30th day after the designated billing office has received a proper invoice. 2. The 30th day after Government acceptance of supplies delivered or services performed. B. The due date for making invoice payments for meat and meat food products, perishable agricultural commodities, dairy products, and edible fats or oils, shall be in accordance with the Prompt Payment Act, as amended. III. Interest Penalties A. An interest penalty shall be paid automatically, if payment is not made by the due date and the conditions listed below are met, if applicable. 1. A proper invoice was received by the designated billing office. 2. A receiving report or other Government documentation authorizing payment was processed and there was no disagreement over quantity, quality, or contractor compliance with an term or condition. 3. In the case of a final invoice for any balance of funds due the Contractor for supplies delivered or services performed, the amount was not subject to further settlement actions between the Government and the Contractor. B. Determination of interest and penalties due will be made in accordance with the provisions of the Prompt Payment Act, as amended, the Contract Disputes Act, and regulations issued by the Office of Management and Budget. IV. PROVIDING ACCELERATED PAYMENT TO SMALL BUSINESS SUBCONTRACTORS, 52.232-99 (DEVIATION) (August 2013) This clause implements the temporary policy provided by OMB Policy Memorandum M-12-16, Providing Prompt Payment to Small Business Subcontractors, dated July 11, 2012, and the extension to that policy provided by OMB Policy Memorandum M-13-15, Extension of Policy to Provide Accelerated Payment to Small Business Subcontractors, dated July 11, 2013. a. Upon receipt of accelerated payments from the Government, the contractor is required to make accelerated payments to small business subcontractors to the maximum extent practicable after receipt of a proper invoice and all proper documentation from the small business subcontractor. b. Include the substance of this article, including this paragraph (b), in all subcontracts with small business concerns. c. The acceleration of payments under this clause does not provide any new rights under the Prompt Payment Act.

March 3rd 2015 Requisition #: 15-002625 Notice of Intent to Sole Source The National Institute of Health Office of Purchasing and Contracts intends to negotiate and 1 year standing contract to ROCHE DIAGNOSTICS CORP., IN 46250 to provide various kits, reagents and other consumables for which the government intends to solicit and negotiate with only one source under the authority of 6.302-1. The North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code for this acquisition is 325413, and the size standard is 500 Employees This notice of intent to award is not a request for competitive quotations. Interested concerns capable of providing the same or similar products or services as described in this notice may submit a capability statement outlining their capabilities. No solicitation is available. Information received will be evaluated for the purpose of determining whether to conduct a competitive procurement. Capability Statements must be received within the time set forth in this synopsis to be considered by the Government. A determination to compete this proposed contract based on responses to this notice is solely within the discretion of the Government. The following verbiage is directly from the Justification for Other Than Full and Open Competition (JOFOC). The Department of Laboratory Medicine requires various kits, reagents and other consumables used in the Bone Marrow Research and Clinical Protocols to determine disease process and course of action for patients performed on existing instrumentation. These are the only supplies that will fit and authorized to be used into the testing instruments of the Roche/Ventana BenchMark Ultra, Nexus and Benchmark Special Stains instruments. (SN#311348, 311065, 311332, 311346, 51547, and 5110814) The proposed vendor, Roche Diagnostics, is the sole manufacturer, vendor, and service provider for the Ventana BenchMark Ultras, Nexus/BenchMark Special Stains Instrumentation. Roche does not give authorization for any third party resellers. Roche manufactures the only system of this type that has the capability to perform all of these testings to fit our patient population and protocols at the Clinical Center. Since only one supplier for existing instrumentation, Roche Diagnostics., will fit the instrumentation validations and requirements, any other supply or service could cause the cancellation of the protocol/delays in completion of the protocol. This would cause unwarranted expenditure/waste of very limited Government research funds. It is therefore deemed to be in the Government's best interest that these items are procured by Roche Diagnostics.

ROCHE BENCHMARK INSTRUMENTATION REAGENT PACKAGE

cpvs

March 3rd 2015 Requisition #: 15-002625 Notice of Intent to Sole Source The National Institute of Health Office of Purchasing and Contracts intends to negotiate and 4 month contract to ROCHE DIAGNOSTICS CORP., IN 46250 to provide a continuing instrumentation package for which the government intends to solicit and negotiate with only one source under the authority of 6.302-1. The North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code for this acquisition is 325413, and the size standard is 500 Employees This notice of intent to award is not a request for competitive quotations. Interested concerns capable of providing the same or similar products or services as described in this notice may submit a capability statement outlining their capabilities. No solicitation is available. Information received will be evaluated for the purpose of determining whether to conduct a competitive procurement. Capability Statements must be received within the time set forth in this synopsis to be considered by the Government. A determination to compete this proposed contract based on responses to this notice is solely within the discretion of the Government. The following verbiage is directly from the Justification for Other Than Full and Open Competition (JOFOC). The Department of Laboratory Medicine requires this procurement to continue an instrumentation package for the existing BenchMark Ultra's (SN#311348, 311065, 311332, 311346). The required performance period from 18 May 2015 to 01 September 2015 that includes service, detection Kits, and other consumables used in established Department of Laboratory Medicine Bone Marrow Research and Clinical Protocols in determining Bone Marrow disease process, course of action and treatment of NIH patients. The proposed vendor, Roche Diagnostics, is the sole manufacturer, vendor, and service provider for the Ventana BenchMark Ultras, Nexus/BenchMark Special Stains Instrumentation. Roche does not give authorization for any third party resellers. Roche manufactures the only system of this type that has the capability to perform all of these testings to fit our patient population and protocols at the Clinical Center. Since only one supplier for existing instrumentation, Roche Diagnostics., will fit the instrumentation validations and requirements, any other supply or service could cause the cancellation of the protocol/delays in completion of the protocol. This would cause unwarranted expenditure/waste of very limited Government research funds. It is therefore deemed to be in the Government's best interest that these items are procured by Roche Diagnostics. Reagents Ultra-View DAB 760-500 and Ultra-View Alkphos Red 760-501 Instruments BenchMark Ultra's (SN#311348, 311065, 311332, 311346) All responses are due to the Contract Specialist within 15 calendar days from the date of this synopsis.

A proper invoice is an "Original" which must include the items listed in subdivisions 1 through 12, below, in addition to the requirements of FAR 32.9.

(See exceptions under II., below.) Untimely notification will be taken into account in the computation of any interest penalty owed the Contractor. 1. Vendor/Contractor: Name, Address, Point of Contact for the invoice (Name, title, telephone number, e-mail and mailing address of point of contact). 2. Remit-to address (Name and complete mailing address to send payment). 3. Remittance name must match exactly with name on original order/contract.

The VIN is the number that appears after the contractor's name on the face page of the award document. 9. Identify that payment is to be made using a three-way match. 10. Description of supplies/services that match the description on the award, by line billed.* 11. Freight or delivery charge must be billed as shown on the award.

Quantity, Unit of Measure, Unit Price, Extended Price of supplies delivered or services performed, as applicable, and that match the line items specified in the award.* * NOTE: If your invoice must differ from the line items on the award, please contact the Contracting Officer before submitting the invoice. A modification to the order or contract may be needed before the invoice can be submitted and paid. B. Shipping costs will be reimbursed only if authorized by the Contract/Purchase Order. If authorized, shipping costs must be itemized. Where shipping costs exceed $100, the invoice must be supported by a bill of lading or a paid carrier's receipt. C. Mail an original copy of the itemized invoice to: National Institutes of Health Office of Financial Management, Commercial Accounts 2115 East Jefferson Street, Room 4B-432, MSC 8500 Bethesda, MD 20892-8500 For inquiries regarding payment call: (301) 496-6088 In order to facilitate the prompt payment of invoices, it is recommended that the vendor submit a photocopy of the invoice to the "Consignee" designated for the acquisition in blocks 6A - 6E of the face page of the Order/Award document. II. Invoice Payment A. Except as indicated in paragraph B., below, the due date for making invoice payments by the designated payment office shall be the later of the following two events: 1. The 30th day after the designated billing office has received a proper invoice. 2. The 30th day after Government acceptance of supplies delivered or services performed. B. The due date for making invoice payments for meat and meat food products, perishable agricultural commodities, dairy products, and edible fats or oils, shall be in accordance with the Prompt Payment Act, as amended. III. Interest Penalties A. An interest penalty shall be paid automatically, if payment is not made by the due date and the conditions listed below are met, if applicable. 1. A proper invoice was received by the designated billing office. 2. A receiving report or other Government documentation authorizing payment was processed and there was no disagreement over quantity, quality, or contractor compliance with an term or condition. 3. In the case of a final invoice for any balance of funds due the Contractor for supplies delivered or services performed, the amount was not subject to further settlement actions between the Government and the Contractor. B. Determination of interest and penalties due will be made in accordance with the provisions of the Prompt Payment Act, as amended, the Contract Disputes Act, and regulations issued by the Office of Management and Budget. IV.

The North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code for this acquisition is 339112, and the size standard is 500 Employees This notice of intent to award is not a request for competitive quotations. Interested concerns capable of providing the same or similar products or services as described in this notice may submit a capability statement outlining their capabilities. No solicitation is available. Information received will be evaluated for the purpose of determining whether to conduct a competitive procurement. Capability Statements must be received within the time set forth in this synopsis to be considered by the Government. A determination to compete this proposed contract based on responses to this notice is solely within the discretion of the Government. The following verbiage is directly from the Justification for Other Than Full and Open Competition (JOFOC). The DLM Hematology Service provides laboratory support for patient care and research protocols and performs research and training in disciplines of Clinical Pathology. In doing so it provides state-of-the-art laboratory testing in support of Clinical Center patient care and serves as a center of excellence in research and training in laboratory medicine, particularly in areas which utilize the unique strengths of the National Institutes of Health. The Diagnostica Stago Inc. will provide kits and reagents used to analyze all Coagulation and Thrombosis related testing samples for Clinical Center patients. The two Coagulation analyzers-STA-R- Evolution will perform the Prothrombin Time Assay, activated Prothrombin Time Assay, Fibrinogen Assay, Thrombin Time Assay, D-Dimer Assay, Mixing Studies Assays, Kaolin Clotting Time Assay, Factor Assays, Antithrombin III Assay, Alpha 2 Antiplasmin Assay, Protein C Assay, Protein S Assay, Lupus Anticoagulant Assays, Anti Xa Assays, Plasminogen Assay, Plasminogen Activator Inhibitor -1 Assay, Reptilase Assay, von Willebrand Antigen and Activity Assays and monitor therapeutic for Direct Thrombin inhibitor. The proposed vendor, Diagnostic Stago Inc., is the sole manufacturer, distributor, and service provider for the STA-R Evolution (and its products) and is the only system of this type that has the capability to perform all of these testings to fit our patient population and protocols at the Clinical Center. Since only one supplier, Diagnostica Stago Inc. will fit the instrumentation validations and requirements, any other supply or service could cause the cancellation of the protocol/delays in completion of the protocol.
