Data Validation

Department of Energy, Stoller Navarro Joint Venture | Published August 27, 2009  -  Deadline September 17, 2009
cpvs

The subcontractor shall provide supplies and services for the validation of analytical data from radiological, organic chemical and inorganic chemical analyses of environmental samples. Samples requiring data validation in support of contractor activities may consist of soil, waste, groundwater, surface water, domestic supply water, air filters, demolition debris (e.g., metal, concrete, building materials), biota, sludge, organic liquids, and/or cloth swipe samples. The majority of the work performed under this contract will consist of TIER III (third party) validation verification on samples that have already been validated and had qualifiers applied by the contractor. The contractor performs 100% TIER II validation and requires 5% TIER III validation verification by the subcontractor. There may be instances when the contractor requests 100% TIER II validation services. Samples submitted to the subcontractor for TIER III validation are chosen by the project upon completion of TIER II validation. As a result, it is common that a validation request will contain multiple data packages of numerous samples, but only one or two samples within each data package will require validation. In addition, the deliverables consist of original hard copy data packages and are expected to be handled with care as to not destroy or damage the records. Data packages are kept intact at all times and are not separated to only include the applicable samples and corresponding QC/raw data when submitted to the subcontractor. If the subcontractor desires, they can request that copies of the form I's with qualifiers concealed (for the specific samples requiring TIER III validation) be submitted in place of the original form I's revealing the contractor's validation. Data packages shall be returned to SNJV upon completion of the validation task. When available by the laboratory, CD's of data packages without the contractor's validation can be sent instead of original hardcopies. The original hardcopies will contain markups throughout the data packages as a result of the TIER II validation, which cannot be incorporated into or used for the TIER III validation (e.g. calibration verifications must be performed by the TIER III subcontractor even if one is available as a result of TIER II). Proposals may be submitted for chemical analysis, radiochemical analysis, or both categories of services. Proposals for inorganic analysis only or organic analysis only, will not be accepted. Hard copy validated deliverables are due to the contractor by the subcontractor within 14 calendar days from the date of receipt unless prior arrangements are made. The Request for Proposal can be found by accessing Stoller-Navarro's Web site www.stoller-navarro.com, click the Procurement tab. Vendors shall email questions concerning this procurement to SNJVRFP@nv.doe.gov; reference 2010R0001 in the subject line of the email. The vendor is to respond to all requests made in the RFP and be capable of performing to the requirements in the Statement of Work.

The solicitation document and incorporated provisions and clauses are those in effect through Federal Acquisition Circular (FAC) 2005-34.*** *** The associated North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS) code for this procurement is 334516 with a small business size standard of 500 employees. This requirement is unrestricted and all interested Contractors may submit a quotation.*** *** The National Institute of Standards and Technology is seeking to purchase One (1) Inductively-Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometry System (ICP-OES). *** Background: The Inorganic Chemical Metrology Group (ICMG) of NIST�s Chemical Science and Technology Laboratory serves as the nation�s reference laboratory for chemical measurements and standards to enhance U.S. industry�s productivity and competitiveness, assure equity in trade, and provide quality assurance for chemical measurements used for assessing and improving public health, safety, and the environment. The ICMG has a requirement for an Inductively-Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometry System (ICP-OES) on which to perform a variety of inorganic chemical measurements as well as innovative research. The instrument will be used to value assign Standard Reference Materials (SRMs), such as the 3100 series of single-element solution SRMs, SRM 3182 Chloride, and SRM 3184 Bromide. It will also be used for other determinations of importance as they arise. Consequently, the instrument must be suitable for the implementation of the HP-ICP-OES approach, meaning that it must be capable of truly simultaneous data acquisition, simultaneous full spectral coverage, and random and repeated sample vial access. Further, the new ICP-OES instrument must be capable of acquiring time-resolved data, as required for coupling to a DMA or chromatograph, and must allow easy access to the nebulizer and spray chamber during plasma operation. ***All interested Contractors may provide a quote for the following: Line Item 0001: Inductively-Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometry System (ICP-OES), which shall meet or exceed the minimum specifications outlined in the attachment (NIST ICP-OES Specifications.doc). The Contractor shall provide installation for the Inductively-Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometry System (ICP-OES). Installation shall include, at a minimum, uncrating/unpackaging of all equipment, set-up and hook-up of all equipment, system verification, and system check for manufacturing defects and any damage during shipment. The Contractor shall provide a thorough demonstration of all equipment functions. This must include a demonstration of all salient characteristics herein. The Contractor shall schedule and facilitate on-site (Gaithersburg, MD) training for at least four (4) NIST researchers.
