66--66--Terahertz (THz) Spectroscopic Signature Development of Chemical/Biological Materials with Library Grade

Department of the Army, Army Contracting Command | Published August 19, 2015  -  Deadline September 2, 2015
cpvs

This is a combined synopsis/solicitation for commercial items prepared in accordance with the format in Subpart 12.6, as supplemented with additional information included in this notice. This announcement constitutes the only solicitation; proposals are being requested and a written solicitation will not be issued. The proposed contract will continue the advancement and understanding of fundamentals and shed light on the effectiveness of sub-terahertz (THz) based spectroscopy as a tool for chemical and biological agent detection. The Army Contracting Command Aberdeen Proving Ground (ACC-APG) intends to award a sole source contract to Vibratess, LLC located at 104 Chaucer Road, Charlottesville, Virginia 22901. The contractor shall conduct theoretical modeling and analysis with the goals of predicting signatures and indicators that may be accessed and to identify gaps in the THz spectroscopy data for Edgewood Chemical Biological Center (ECBC). The THz spectroscopic region covers the frequencies from 0.3 THz to 10 THz in the electromagnetic spectrum. The research work and technical approach is based on leveraging THz spectrometer instrumentation that was developed by Vibratess, LLC. This instrument is capable of scanning spectral range between 315 and 480 GHz with a spectral resolution of 0.1GHz. The spectral range has been shown to have distinguishable THz signatures for biological detection. The Vibratess spectrometer permits observation of intense and narrow spectral resonances in transmission/absorption spectra of nano-samples from biological molecules and bacteria with widths between 0.05 and 0.2 cm-1 due to a high sensitivity, good spectral resolution, and a spatial resolution below the diffraction limit. Only Vibratess can successfully complete this work because only Vibratess has the required proprietary THz spectrometer with the capability to perform at the aforementioned ranges. It would be impractical at best and likely impossible to have another contractor independently develop the required assets and techniques to meet the Government's schedule. Vibratess is the only source able to do this work without any undue delays, costs, and risk. The period of performance will be 360 calendar days after contract award. The NAICS code for this requirement is 541711 and size standard of 500 employees. The statutory authority permitting other than full and open competition is implemented by FAR Part 6. Only one responsible source and no other supplies or services will satisfy agency requirements. A determination by the Government not to compete this proposed contract based upon responses to this notice is solely within the discretion of the Government. This synopsis neither constitutes a Request for Proposal, nor does it restrict the Government to a particular acquisition approach. Vibrates LLC is the Original Equipment Manufacturer. DESCRIPTION OF ITEMS/STATEMENT OF WORK Task 1- Experimental THz Spectral Signature reproducibility and increase sensitivity. Using the THz spectrometer that was developed by Vibratess LLC, the contractor shall conduct experimental analysis with the goals of increasing THz sensitivity of weak absorption peaks and provide reproducibility of acquired THz spectra. Such efforts will increase the confidence in THz as a tool for discriminating between chemicals and biological surrogates. It also offers a confirmation on the integrity of the collected THz spectral data. Biological simulants to be interrogated shall include, but are not be limited to, Bacillus Globigii, BG, herring DNA, Ovalbumin, the viral stimulant MS2 and Erwinia Herbicola (EH). Task 2- THz Spectral Signature Modeling of Biological Materials. The contractor shall continue improving theoretical modeling and analysis with the goals of predicting signatures and indicators that may be accessed and to identify gaps in the THz spectroscopy data. The modeling shall also offer a confirmation on the integrity of the collected spectral data from Task 1. Inspection/Acceptance. Inspection and Acceptance will be at Origin. Delivery Schedule. Delivery shall be 360 days after contract award. Safety Considerations. The contractor shall not use any sensitive items, hazardous items, chemical agents, carcinogens, or perform any microbiological and/or biomedical work in the performance of this contract.

This contract action was accomplished using other than competitive procedures because this is a task/delivery order where an exception to fair opportunity requirements was approved due to only one source being available (FAR 8.405-6(a)(1)(i)(B) or 16.505(b)(2)(ii)). This contract action was not awarded as a fixed price type because uncertainties involved in contract performance did not permit costs to be estimated with sufficient accuracy to use any type of fixed price contract. As such, a cost-reimbursement type action was awarded. The objective of the task is to provide NBCSPG engineering and technical support for the Stryker NBCRV. The scope requires the contractor to provide systems engineering expertise to analyze hardware, firmware, and software system concepts. The contractor shall provide engineering support pertaining to software upgrades required due to obsolescence and alternate hardware configurations.

Stage Four will take not more than 1 month. Completion of this stage will be the identification of at least four hybridomas demonstrating a dose response to tetrodotoxin CLIN 0005: Stage 5 Cloning: Development of monoclonal antibodies to tetrodotoxin (5 stages). The fifth stage of this project will be comprised of cloning the stable cell lines identified in stage four. This step will take not more than 2 months. The four clones with the best sensitivity to tetrodotoxin in a dose response assay will be isolated and grown to confluence resulting in 40 mL of supernatant containing maximally expressed monoclonal antibody. This supernatant will be delivered to the customer for evaluation.

66--Intent to Sole Source MKS Airgard Plus

Department of the Army, Army Contracting Command | Published August 18, 2015  -  Deadline August 25, 2015
cpvs

Army Contracting Command - Aberdeen Proving Ground (ACC-APG) intends to solicit a sole source, firm-fixed price, contract for the MKS Airgard Plus Instruments. The proposed contract action is required by The Edgewood Chemical Biological Center (ECBC). This action is supported by the authority of Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) FAR 6.302-1 (c) (application for brand name descriptions). The proposed action is for a supply (one time buy) for which the Government intends to solicit and negotiate with any supplier of MKS Airgard Plus, under the authority of FAR 6.302-1. In accordance with FAR 5.207(c) (16)(ii), all responsible sources may submit a capability statement, proposal, or quotation which shall be considered by the agency. This requirement shall be set aside for small businesses. This requirement is to procure five (5) MKS Airgard Plus instruments (and warranty) that provide Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy-based gas analysis that detects Chemical Warfare Agents (CWA) and Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TIC). It offers improved analytical sensitivity and results are displayed in real time, which is an additional improvement on current technology which displays results once every fifteen minutes. Market research indicates that MKS Airgard Plus is the only item that can fulfill the requirement at this time due to unique technology that generates results every 20 seconds. Analytical detection for this item is in the single digit parts per billion as opposed to double digits or parts per million levels of detection with other systems. The NAICS code for this acquisition is 334516 and the size standard is 500 employees. For further information please contact Ms. Jennifer Davies, jennifer.i.davies.civ@mail.mil.
