PHE are looking to procure services to enable the preparation of comprehensive toxicological / epidemiological reviews for the Committee on Toxicity of Chemicals in Food, Consumer Products and the Environment (COT), Committee on Carcinogenicity of Chemicals in Food, Consumer Products and the Environment (COC), Committee on Mutagenicity of Chemicals in Food, Consumer Products and the Environment (COM) and the Advisory Committee on Pesticides (ECP).

Please note that this project is currently under contract and therefore this opportunity will include transfer of undertaking from the incumbent provider.

The preparation of comprehensive toxicological and/or epidemiological reviews will require the identification and critical appraisal of extensive published literature and/or, less commonly, of unpublished submissions on laboratory and other studies from industry.

The areas covered by these committees include chemicals in the following areas: consumer products, pesticides and veterinary residues, environmental pollutants (air, soil, water and waste). In addition, the committees discuss general principles and new approaches to chemical risk assessment.

UK SHARED BUSINESS SERVICES LIMITED | Published March 29, 2017  -  Deadline April 26, 2017
cpvs
45300000

ISIS has a door security system that currently controls approximately 250 doors. Each door is wired back to a control panel called an Istar (each Istar normally handles up to 8 doors maximum). It is server based and is controlled by a software system called Ccure 800 from Software House. There is a requirement to add a further 13 doors to the current system. These doors are roughly equally spread out across 2 buildings. Eight of these doors will be added to current local Istars and the remaining five doors will need to be added along with a new local 16 way Istar. All doors require HiD Miniprox readers and will be swipe in/swipe out and have a monitored emergency break glass unit on both sides of the door to directly cut power to the magnet. The doors should be secured with a monitored magnetic lock and associated brackets (Note: one door is a double and will need a double magnetic lock). All readers to be connected to an enclosed Tyco RM-4E module local to the door. The new Istar will need installing along with battery backed up power supplies for the Istar and doors local to the Istar. We will provide a fused spur and live network socket for connecting the Istar. All other necessary cabling and containment to be provided and installed by the installer. (In some cases cable containment is already installed and available for use for this project). The installation philosophy of these additional doors must follow with the current installed system. This includes the programming of the Istar and all of the doors. The naming convention of the additions must also follow the current system and will be provided About UK Shared Business Services Putting the business into shared services UK Shared Business Services Ltd (UK SBS) brings a commercial attitude to the public sector; helping our customers improve efficiency, generate savings and modernise.

STEM — Thermal Analysis and Testing Equipment

University of Derby | Published March 9, 2017  -  Deadline April 7, 2017
cpvs
51430000, 73111000, 71600000, 71900000

A 4 200 square metre building for science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) is being built at the University's Markeaton Street site. The centre, which is expected to be completed by 2017, will focus on real-world learning, combining functional teaching space with infrastructure designed for the specific needs of engineering and computing.

The College of Engineering and Technology, University of Derby is expanding in to the field of composite materials. A laboratory is being setup to look at the advanced material characterisation of these materials. It will offer an extensive range of analysis equipment for the characterisation of composites and their constituent materials.

The purpose of this tender is to expand on the current facilities, therefore enhancing the student experience with up to date equipment.

This is a tender to provide three items of thermal analysis and testing equipment:

Item 1 — Dynamic Mechanical Analysis.

Dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA) is an important technique used to measure the mechanical and viscoelastic properties of materials such as thermoplastics, thermosets, elastomers, ceramics and metals. In DMA, the sample is subjected to a periodic stress in one of several different modes of deformation. The force and displacement amplitudes and phase shift are analysed as a function of temperature, time and frequency.

Item 2 — Differential Scanning Calorimetry.

Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) is the most frequently used thermal analysis technique. DSC measures enthalpy changes in samples due to changes in their physical and chemical properties as a function of temperature or time.

Item 3 — Thermomechanical Analysis.

Thermomechanical analysis (TMA) is used to measure dimensional changes of a material as a function of temperature. TMA easily and rapidly measures sample displacement (growth, shrinkage, movement, etc.) as a function of temperature, time and applied force. TMA is used to characterize linear expansion, glass transitions, and softening points of materials by applying a constant force to a specimen while varying temperature.
