B--SOM01.2 Organic Chemical Analyses

Environmental Protection Agency, Office of Acquisition Management | Published October 14, 2009
cpvs

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Office of Superfund Remediation Technology and Innovation (OSRTI) Analytical Services Branch (ASB) has a requirement for Multi-Level, Multi-Matrix Organic Sample Analyses. This requirement will provide a contractual framework for qualified laboratories to apply EPA Contract Laboratory Program (CLP) analytical methods for determining the presence and concentration of specified organic sample analytes. The applicable North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code for this requirement is 541380 with a U.S. Small Business Administration defined size standard of $12 million. This acquisition will be partially set-aside for small business concerns. This requirement will satisfy a need for qualified laboratories to apply EPA CLP analytical methods for the isolation, detection, and quantitative measurement of 52 volatile, 67 semivolatile, 21 pesticide, and 9 Aroclor target compounds in water and soil/sediment samples. Analyses are performed using Gas Chromatograph/Mass Spectrometer (GC/MS) and Gas Chromatograph/Electron Capture Detector (GC/ECD). The EPA intends to award multiple indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity type contracts with a one-year base period and two one-year option periods to meet the EPA's anticipated analytical needs using the procedures set forth in Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Part 15-Contracting by Negotiation. Detailed information on the analytical requirements is provided via the Organic (SOM01.2) SOW and its associated exhibits/appendices which are posted to the following web page: (http://www.epa.gov/superfund/programs/clp/som1.htm). The SOM01.2 SOW is a protocol that will define the organic methods and procedures accepted by the CLP. The EPA has identified a need to avoid, neutralize, or mitigate actual and potential contractor conflicts of interest (COI). It is imperative that the organic CLP contractors be beyond reproach and free from any improper influence or bias, as the potential for conflict could dramatically erode public confidence in EPA?s ability to accomplish its mission of protecting human health and the environment. As a result, an offeror who is a SMO (Sample Management Office), ESAT (Environmental Services Assistance Team), or QATS (Quality Assurance and Technical Support) contractor at the time of CLP contract award will be ineligible for award of a CLP contract. An offeror that has a significant financial interest in or business relationship with a SMO, ESAT and/or QATS contractor which cannot be avoided, neutralized, or mitigated by time of award will also be ineligible for award of a CLP contract. The following provisions and clauses will be included in the solicitation and resulting contract(s) to avoid COI and awarding a CLP contract to an ineligible offeror: A. Solicitation Stage To mitigate significant potential for COI the following provisions will appear in the CLP solicitation. Section K - ORGANIZATIONAL CONFLICT OF INTEREST CERTIFICATION (EPAAR 1552.209-72) (APR 1984) Section L- ORGANIZATIONAL CONFLICT OF INTEREST NOTIFICATION (EPAAR 1552.209-70) (APR 1984) Section L- CONFLICT OF INTERST PLAN (LOCAL LC-09-04) (DEC 2001) Section L- DISCLOSURE OF POTENTIAL ORGANIZATIONAL CONFLICTS OF INTEREST Section M- EVALUATION OF PROPOSALS FOR AVOIDING OR MITIGATING AN EXISTING SIGNIFICANT POTENTIAL FOR CONFLICT OF INTEREST The solicitation will require the offeror to identify any financial interests in or business relationships with the Sample Management Office (SMO) contractor, the Quality Assurance Technical Services (QATS) contractor or and Environmental Services Assistance Team (ESAT) contractor. If the EPA determines that financial interest or a business relationship with such a contractor creates an actual or significant potential conflict of interest that cannot reasonably be avoided, neutralized,or mitigated, the offeror will be ineligible for award. Furthermore, an offeror that currently has a SMO, QATS, or ESAT contract at the time of contract award will be ineligible for CLP contract award. Section M - EVALUATION OF CONFLICT OF INTEREST PLAN (LOCAL LRT-09-05) (DEC 2001) DEVIATION The plan described in Section L.14 entitled "CONFLICT OF INTEREST PLAN" will be evaluated as acceptable or not acceptable. Notwithstanding any other evaluation of the offeror's proposal, an offeror that submits a plan that is unacceptable at the time of award will not be eligible for a contract award. Solicitation Attachment (to be determined) - MINIMUM STANDARDS FOR EPA CONTRACTORS? CONFLICT OF INTEREST PLANS B. Contract Management Stage The contract will require the contractor to certify annually that no conflicts or potential conflicts of interest exist, or that they have been disclosed or mitigated. In addition, the contractor must certify that all personnel who are to perform work under a task order have been informed of their obligation to report any personal or organizational COI, and that the contractor understands its continuing obligation to search for and to report any COI. The solicitation and resultant contract will also contain the following COI contract clauses. Section H- ORGANIZATIONAL CONFLICTS OF INTEREST (EPAAR 1552.209-71) (MAY 1994) Section H- NOTIFICATION OF CONFLICT OF INTEREST REGARDING PERSONNEL (EPAAR 1552.209-73) (MAY 1994) Section H- LIMITATION OF FUTURE CONTRACTING (HEADQUARTERS SUPPORT) (EPAAR 1552.209-74) (OCT 2005) ALTERNATE V (APR 2004) Section H ? ANNUAL CERTIFICATION (EPAAR 1552.209-75) (MAY 1994) Section H ?

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) intends to solicit proposals utilizing full and open competition to improve a prototype high surface area solid phase microextraction (HSA-SPME) device by studying the flow dynamics necessary to enhance volatile organic chemical (VOC) uptake under high flow conditions in a chip-based design/configuration. Work will focus on performing airflow dynamics modeling to understand how the airflow dynamics parameters influence the collection efficiency. Also the effect of collector wiring orientation (coil vs. straight) on the collection efficiency or other alternate designs suggested by the previous simulations will be evaluated. No paper copies of the RFP will be provided nor is a mailing list being maintained for this acquisition as the RFP will be posted electronically to the Federal Business Opportunities website. All responsible sources may submit a proposal. Questions or correspondence should be directed to Ms. Lynda M. Theisen, Contracting Officer, via email at Lynda.Theisen@ic.fbi.gov.

Two Liquid Chromatography Systems

This is a combined synopsis/solicitation for commercial items prepared in accordance with the format in 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; quotations are being requested, and a written solicitation document will not be issued. This solicitation is being issued using Simplified Acquisition Procedures under the authority of FAR Part 13 - Simplified Acquisition Procedures. The National Institute of Standards and Technology requires two Agilent Brand Liquid Chromatography systems. Brand Name Only Justification is as follows: The purpose of the procurement is to provide a much-needed upgrade to the LC-MS systems currently used by the Organic Chemical Measurement Science group within the Chemical Sciences Division (CSD). CSD's mass spectrometry (MS) technology is advanced with recent purchases/upgrades, but our current liquid chromatography (LC) systems are fairly out-of-date and the quality of measurements would be improved with the upgraded instruments. The current MS systems that need LC upgrades are an Agilent Technology triple quadrupole mass spectrometer and an AB Sciex triple quadrupole mass spectrometer. These instruments are run using Mass Hunter and Analyst software, respectively. In order to use the LC-MS together, both the MS and the LC must be controllable by the software associated with the MS systems (therefore the LCs must be controlled by Mass Hunter and Analyst). Other LC systems can be controlled by their own software (which would need to be additionally purchased), but the instruments would need to be run independently on their individual softwares; this mode of operation (independent software packages) would decrease the ease-of-use of the instrumentation, make LC-MS protocols more burdensome for analysis and training of new users, and software independence of the LC and MS can cause instrument-to-computer communication issues, resulting in failed analyses or poor data quality. The only manufacturer of LCs that can be controlled by both Mass Hunter and Analyst software is Agilent Technologies, for which their Agilent 1260 and Agilent 1290 LC systems provide the needed upgrade to the LC end of the LC-MS systems.
