PLEASE NOTE - The above contact information is for the Contracting Office and not the delivery address. The delivery address is indicated in the FOB Destination section below. For information regarding this solicitation, please contact Howard Nesmith by e-Mail at howard.nesmith@fda.hhs.gov. Requirement: The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER), requires an Enzyme Linked Immunospot (EliSpot) Reader System, and multiple one-year post-warranty Preventive Maintenance Service Agreements. Background: CBER conducts research to evaluate the immunogenicity of vaccines. Many vaccines elicit T cell responses, with T cells secreting cytokines such as IL-2, IL-4, IL-5, IFN- γ or expressing effector molecules such as granzymes and perforins. To characterize the response, Researches need to determine how many cells secrete one or more cytokines. EliSpot assays are used to enumerate cytokine-secreting cells through the use of cytokine-specific antibodies that are labeled with an enzyme such as alkaline phosphatase. These enzyme-labeled antibodies allow cells secreting a single cytokine to be enumerated. However, antibodies that have fluorescent labels that emit light at different wavelengths can be used to enumerate cells secreting different cytokines within a mixture. This is essential for characterizing the response to "universal" influenza vaccines that are in development. Minimum Technical Specifications: • Shall read EliSpot and FluoroSpot assays, Virus Plaque Assays, and count colonies • Shall read at minimum 3 fluorescent markers • Shall rapidly read enzymatic EliSpot plate and 2-color FluoroSpot plate • Shall handle 6, 12, 24, 48, 96 and 384-well plates • Shall include 2 Digital Cameras, at minimum 5 megapixel each, color, optimized for fluorescence imaging • Shall have LED ring illumination, XBO light source, and a filter wheel • Shall include 3 narrow band hard coated fluorescent filters • Shall be optimized for 1-, 2- and 3-color fluorescent analysis • Shall be capable of rapidly switching between enzymatic and fluorescent mode • Shall be capable of rapidly switching different plate formats to perform enzymatic analysis • Shall include PC computer with Microsoft Windows 7 operating system and EliSpot system software o To include multiple Count Settings per plate and well o Shall have an audit trail and plate history o Shall export to txt-files, Excel, and PowerPoint • Shall have various manual manipulation features • Shall include inside delivery, installation, setup, and training and familiarization • Shall be a turn-key solution Minimum Post-Warranty Preventative Maintenance The Government requires post-warranty Preventative Maintenance services as detailed below for four (4) years via multiple option periods that the Government may exercise on a unilateral basis. • At least one on-site Preventive Maintenance (PM) visit per year • Shall include unlimited technical support (e.g., telephone-based, email-based, website-based, etc.), Mondays - Fridays (excluding Federal Holidays) between the hours of 7:00 AM - 5:00 PM Eastern Time. • Shall include unlimited software and firmware updates • All Preventive Maintenance shall be performed on-site by formally trained and certified technicians/engineers, following Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) specifications, manuals, and service bulletins, using OEM replacement parts, components, subassemblies, etc. • All Preventive Maintenance pricing shall be inclusive of labor, travel, replacement parts, components, subassemblies, etc. • Service Records and Reports: The Contractor shall, commensurate with the completion of each preventative maintenance visit, provide the end-user of the equipment and the Contracting Officer with a copy of a field service report/ticket identifying the equipment name, manufacturer, model number, and serial number of the equipment being serviced and provide detailed description of the work performed, the test instruments or other equipment used to affect or otherwise perform the service, the name(s) and contact information of the technician who performed the repair/service, and for information purposes, the on-site hours expended and parts/components replaced.

The government is not responsible for locating or securing any information, which is not identified in the proposal. Paragraph (b). This solicitation is being issued under the premise that the Contractor will certify that the combination of equipment/service it will propose to fulfill this requirement is exempt from the Service Contract Act per the conditions set forth in FAR 52.222-48 & FAR 22.1003-4(c). If this is the case and the Contractor certifies that is exempt under the terms and conditions of 52.222-48, then clause 52.222-51 will flow per usual from this solicitation to the resulting order. In the event that a Contractor does not make this certification, traditional Service Contract Act clauses 52.222-41, and 52.222-43 shall be included in the resulting order award as well as Wage Determination WD 05-2103 (Rev.-15): http://www.wdol.gov/wdol/scafiles/std/05-2103.txt?v=15 Paragraph (b)(4). To ensure information is available, offerors shall furnish as part of their proposal all descriptive material necessary for the government to conclusively determine the technical approach will result in services that meet or exceed the Government's requirements. Paragraph (b)(8) Representations and Certifications- In addition to completing the representations and certifications at FAR 52.212-3(b), the Contractor's quote shall also clearly show that the Contractor has selected the appropriate certification under FAR 52.222-48. FAR CLAUSE 52.222-48 EXEMPTION FROM APPLICATION OF THE SERVICE CONTRACT ACT TO CONTRACTS FOR MAINTENANCE, CALLIBRATION, OR REPAIR OF CERTAIN EQUIPMENT CERTIFICATION (a) The offeror shall check the following certification: CERTIFICATION The offeror [ ] does [ ] does not certify that- (1) The items of equipment to be serviced under this contract are used regularly for other than Government purposes, and are sold or traded by the offeror (or subcontractor in the case of an exempt subcontractor) in substantial quantities to the general public in the course of normal business operations; (2) The services will be furnished at prices which are, or are based on, established catalog or market prices for the maintenance, calibration, or repair of equipment. (i) An "established catalog price" is a price included in a catalog, price list, schedule, or other form that is regularly maintained by the manufacturer or the offeror, is either published or otherwise available for inspection by customers, and states prices at which sales currently, or were last, made to a significant number of buyers constituting the general public. (ii) An "established market price" is a current price, established in the usual course of trade between buyers and sellers free to bargain, which can be substantiated from sources independent of the manufacturer or offeror; and (3) The compensation (wage and fringe benefits) plan for all service employees performing work under the contract are the same as that used for these employees and equivalent employees servicing the same equipment of commercial customers. (b) Certification by the offeror as to its compliance with respect to the contract also constitutes its certification as to compliance by its subcontractor if it subcontracts out the exempt services. If the offeror certifies to the conditions in paragraph (a) of this provision, and the Contracting Officer determines in accordance with FAR 22.1003-4(c)(3) that the Service Contract Act- (1) Will not apply to this offeror, then the Service Contract Act of 1965 clause in this solicitation will not be included in any resultant contract to this offeror; or (2) Will apply to this offeror, then the clause at 52.222-51, Exemption from Application of the Service Contract Act to Contracts for Maintenance, Calibration, or Repair of Certain Equipment-Requirements, in this solicitation will not be included in any resultant contract awarded to this offeror, and the offeror may be provided an opportunity to submit a new offer on that basis. (c) If the offeror does not certify to the conditions in paragraph (a) of this provision- (1) The clause in this solicitation at 52.222-51, Exemption from Application of the Service Contract Act to Contracts for Maintenance, Calibration, or Repair of Certain Equipment-Requirements, will not be included in any resultant contract awarded to this offeror; and (2) The offeror shall notify the Contracting Officer as soon as possible, if the Contracting Officer did not attach a Service Contract Act wage determination to the solicitation. (d) The Contracting Officer may not make an award to the offeror, if the offeror fails to execute the certification in paragraph (a) of this provision or to contact the Contracting Officer as required in paragraph (c) of this provision. The provision at FAR 52.212-2 Evaluation-Commercial Items applies to this solicitation. The following subparagraph (a) factors apply: (i) Technical Capability (See FAR Provision 52.212-1 (b) (4) and addenda thereto) (ii) Price. Technical capability is more important than price in determining the best value to the Government though price remains a significant consideration. Options. The Government will evaluate offers for award purposes by adding the total price for all options to the total price for the basic requirement. The Government may determine that an offer is unacceptable if the option prices are significantly unbalanced. Evaluation of options shall not obligate the Government to exercise the option(s). A written notice of award or acceptance of an offer, mailed or otherwise furnished to the successful offeror within the time for acceptance specified in the offer, shall result in a binding contract without further action by either party. Before the offer's specified expiration time, the Government may accept an offer (or part of an offer), whether or not there are negotiations after its receipt, unless a written notice of withdrawal is received before award. The Provision at FAR 52.212-3, Offerors Representations and Certifications-Commercial Items, (Mar 2015) applies to this acquisition. An offeror shall complete only paragraph (b) of the provision if the offeror has completed the annual representations and certification electronically via https://www.sam.gov/portal/public/SAM/#1 . If an offeror has not completed the annual representations and certifications electronically at the website, the offeror shall complete only paragraphs (c) through (o) of this provision. It is the offeror's responsibility to monitor the internet site for the release of an amendment to the combined synopsis/solicitation (if any).

PLEASE NOTE - The above contact information is for the Contracting Office and not the delivery address. The delivery address is indicated in the FOB Destination section below. For information regarding this solicitation, please contact Howard Nesmith by e-Mail at howard.nesmith@fda.hhs.gov. Requirement: The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER), requires an Enzyme Linked Immunospot (EliSpot) Reader System, and multiple one-year post-warranty Preventive Maintenance Service Agreements. Background: CBER conducts research to evaluate the immunogenicity of vaccines. Many vaccines elicit T cell responses, with T cells secreting cytokines such as IL-2, IL-4, IL-5, IFN- γ or expressing effector molecules such as granzymes and perforins. To characterize the response, Researches need to determine how many cells secrete one or more cytokines. EliSpot assays are used to enumerate cytokine-secreting cells through the use of cytokine-specific antibodies that are labeled with an enzyme such as alkaline phosphatase. These enzyme-labeled antibodies allow cells secreting a single cytokine to be enumerated. However, antibodies that have fluorescent labels that emit light at different wavelengths can be used to enumerate cells secreting different cytokines within a mixture. This is essential for characterizing the response to "universal" influenza vaccines that are in development. Minimum Technical Specifications: • Shall read EliSpot and FluoroSpot assays, Virus Plaque Assays, and count colonies • Shall read at minimum 3 fluorescent markers • Shall rapidly read enzymatic EliSpot plate and 2-color FluoroSpot plate • Shall handle 6, 12, 24, 48, 96 and 384-well plates • Shall include 2 Digital Cameras, at minimum 5 megapixel each, color, optimized for fluorescence imaging • Shall have LED ring illumination, XBO light source, and a filter wheel • Shall include 3 narrow band hard coated fluorescent filters • Shall be optimized for 1-, 2- and 3-color fluorescent analysis • Shall be capable of rapidly switching between enzymatic and fluorescent mode • Shall be capable of rapidly switching different plate formats to perform enzymatic analysis • Shall include PC computer with Microsoft Windows 7 operating system and EliSpot system software o To include multiple Count Settings per plate and well o Shall have an audit trail and plate history o Shall export to txt-files, Excel, and PowerPoint • Shall have various manual manipulation features • Shall include inside delivery, installation, setup, and training and familiarization • Shall be a turn-key solution Minimum Post-Warranty Preventative Maintenance The Government requires post-warranty Preventative Maintenance services as detailed below for four (4) years via multiple option periods that the Government may exercise on a unilateral basis. • At least one on-site Preventive Maintenance (PM) visit per year • Shall include unlimited technical support (e.g., telephone-based, email-based, website-based, etc.), Mondays - Fridays (excluding Federal Holidays) between the hours of 7:00 AM - 5:00 PM Eastern Time. • Shall include unlimited software and firmware updates • All Preventive Maintenance shall be performed on-site by formally trained and certified technicians/engineers, following Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) specifications, manuals, and service bulletins, using OEM replacement parts, components, subassemblies, etc. • All Preventive Maintenance pricing shall be inclusive of labor, travel, replacement parts, components, subassemblies, etc. • Service Records and Reports: The Contractor shall, commensurate with the completion of each preventative maintenance visit, provide the end-user of the equipment and the Contracting Officer with a copy of a field service report/ticket identifying the equipment name, manufacturer, model number, and serial number of the equipment being serviced and provide detailed description of the work performed, the test instruments or other equipment used to affect or otherwise perform the service, the name(s) and contact information of the technician who performed the repair/service, and for information purposes, the on-site hours expended and parts/components replaced.

The government is not responsible for locating or securing any information, which is not identified in the proposal. Paragraph (b). This solicitation is being issued under the premise that the Contractor will certify that the combination of equipment/service it will propose to fulfill this requirement is exempt from the Service Contract Act per the conditions set forth in FAR 52.222-48 & FAR 22.1003-4(c). If this is the case and the Contractor certifies that is exempt under the terms and conditions of 52.222-48, then clause 52.222-51 will flow per usual from this solicitation to the resulting order. In the event that a Contractor does not make this certification, traditional Service Contract Act clauses 52.222-41, and 52.222-43 shall be included in the resulting order award as well as Wage Determination WD 05-2103 (Rev.-15): http://www.wdol.gov/wdol/scafiles/std/05-2103.txt?v=15 Paragraph (b)(4). To ensure information is available, offerors shall furnish as part of their proposal all descriptive material necessary for the government to conclusively determine the technical approach will result in services that meet or exceed the Government's requirements. Paragraph (b)(8) Representations and Certifications- In addition to completing the representations and certifications at FAR 52.212-3(b), the Contractor's quote shall also clearly show that the Contractor has selected the appropriate certification under FAR 52.222-48. FAR CLAUSE 52.222-48 EXEMPTION FROM APPLICATION OF THE SERVICE CONTRACT ACT TO CONTRACTS FOR MAINTENANCE, CALLIBRATION, OR REPAIR OF CERTAIN EQUIPMENT CERTIFICATION (a) The offeror shall check the following certification: CERTIFICATION The offeror [ ] does [ ] does not certify that- (1) The items of equipment to be serviced under this contract are used regularly for other than Government purposes, and are sold or traded by the offeror (or subcontractor in the case of an exempt subcontractor) in substantial quantities to the general public in the course of normal business operations; (2) The services will be furnished at prices which are, or are based on, established catalog or market prices for the maintenance, calibration, or repair of equipment. (i) An "established catalog price" is a price included in a catalog, price list, schedule, or other form that is regularly maintained by the manufacturer or the offeror, is either published or otherwise available for inspection by customers, and states prices at which sales currently, or were last, made to a significant number of buyers constituting the general public. (ii) An "established market price" is a current price, established in the usual course of trade between buyers and sellers free to bargain, which can be substantiated from sources independent of the manufacturer or offeror; and (3) The compensation (wage and fringe benefits) plan for all service employees performing work under the contract are the same as that used for these employees and equivalent employees servicing the same equipment of commercial customers. (b) Certification by the offeror as to its compliance with respect to the contract also constitutes its certification as to compliance by its subcontractor if it subcontracts out the exempt services. If the offeror certifies to the conditions in paragraph (a) of this provision, and the Contracting Officer determines in accordance with FAR 22.1003-4(c)(3) that the Service Contract Act- (1) Will not apply to this offeror, then the Service Contract Act of 1965 clause in this solicitation will not be included in any resultant contract to this offeror; or (2) Will apply to this offeror, then the clause at 52.222-51, Exemption from Application of the Service Contract Act to Contracts for Maintenance, Calibration, or Repair of Certain Equipment-Requirements, in this solicitation will not be included in any resultant contract awarded to this offeror, and the offeror may be provided an opportunity to submit a new offer on that basis. (c) If the offeror does not certify to the conditions in paragraph (a) of this provision- (1) The clause in this solicitation at 52.222-51, Exemption from Application of the Service Contract Act to Contracts for Maintenance, Calibration, or Repair of Certain Equipment-Requirements, will not be included in any resultant contract awarded to this offeror; and (2) The offeror shall notify the Contracting Officer as soon as possible, if the Contracting Officer did not attach a Service Contract Act wage determination to the solicitation. (d) The Contracting Officer may not make an award to the offeror, if the offeror fails to execute the certification in paragraph (a) of this provision or to contact the Contracting Officer as required in paragraph (c) of this provision. The provision at FAR 52.212-2 Evaluation-Commercial Items applies to this solicitation. The following subparagraph (a) factors apply: (i) Technical Capability (See FAR Provision 52.212-1 (b) (4) and addenda thereto) (ii) Price. Technical capability is more important than price in determining the best value to the Government though price remains a significant consideration. Options. The Government will evaluate offers for award purposes by adding the total price for all options to the total price for the basic requirement. The Government may determine that an offer is unacceptable if the option prices are significantly unbalanced. Evaluation of options shall not obligate the Government to exercise the option(s). A written notice of award or acceptance of an offer, mailed or otherwise furnished to the successful offeror within the time for acceptance specified in the offer, shall result in a binding contract without further action by either party. Before the offer's specified expiration time, the Government may accept an offer (or part of an offer), whether or not there are negotiations after its receipt, unless a written notice of withdrawal is received before award. The Provision at FAR 52.212-3, Offerors Representations and Certifications-Commercial Items, (Mar 2015) applies to this acquisition. An offeror shall complete only paragraph (b) of the provision if the offeror has completed the annual representations and certification electronically via https://www.sam.gov/portal/public/SAM/#1 . If an offeror has not completed the annual representations and certifications electronically at the website, the offeror shall complete only paragraphs (c) through (o) of this provision. It is the offeror's responsibility to monitor the internet site for the release of an amendment to the combined synopsis/solicitation (if any).

This is a Pre-Solicitation notice (synopsis) for a procurement in accordance with FAR Part 5.203 to provide notice of the Government's proposed contract action listed herein. In 2001, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) sponsored the creation of the National EMS Research Agenda; this document, among other important topics, advised the EMS community to apply evidence from scientific research to improve pre-hospital patient care. In 2006, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) furthered this recommendation by also advocating for evidence based guidelines (EBGs) in its report on the Future of Emergency Care in the United States. These documents led to recent efforts to create nationally accepted evidence-based guideline model process that will allow Emergency Medical Service (EMS) Systems to provide scientifically validated and more effective, pre-hospital care to the American public. NHTSA and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) recently sponsored the development of a number of EBGs focusing on topics such as pain management, trauma care, air medical transportation of trauma patients, pediatric seizure management, and pediatric respiratory distress. In addition to sponsoring the creation of EBGs, NHTSA is exploring the implementation of EBGs at the State level through a cooperative agreement awarded to the National Association of State EMS Officials (NASEMSO) in 2012. As more EBGs are created and are adopted by States and EMS systems, it is critical that a method for tracking their implementation and effectiveness is conceived. The first step in tracking the implementation and effectiveness of EBGs is to assess the utility of currently available medical data from EMS information systems, States, and the Federal Government. Most States are now participating in the National EMS Information System, commonly known as NEMSIS, which provides the framework for collecting, storing and sharing standardized EMS patient care data. Participating States collect and transmit a subset of their data to the National EMS Database, where it is available for EMS stakeholders, researchers and public use. The existence of these sources of data provides a potential mechanism to track, assess, and understand the impact of pre-hospital EBGs on patient treatment from motor vehicle crashes and other health emergencies. Unfortunately, it is unclear whether the appropriate data exist or are in the appropriate format for scientific assessment of the implementation and effectiveness of new EBGs. NHTSA's objective is to receive professional services to: 1) create performance measures to assess the implementation and effectiveness of the EBGs over time; 2) determine whether the appropriate data exist in national and State databases to monitor and assess EBG implementation; 3) provide suggestions to State and national database managers that will assist them in modifying databases to improve EBG tracking; 4) Create performance measures for EMS agencies/systems to evaluate their implementation of EBG's; and 5) if appropriate data exists, to track the implementation and effectiveness of EBGs, and analyze the currently available data to show the beginning stages of EBG implementation.  Solicitation Information:  The Government contemplates the award of a single Cost Plus Fixed Fee (CPFF) contract.  The period of performance of the contract will not to exceed twenty-four (24) months.  The forthcoming solicitation and any related documents to this procurement will only be available electronically for download at https://www.fedbizopps.gov referenced by the solicitation number (DTNH2216R00034).  The anticipated issuance date of the forthcoming solicitation is on or about May 3, 2015. However, it is the Offeror's sole responsibility to monitor the Internet site for the release of the solicitation and amendments (if any). Potential Offerors will also be solely responsible for downloading their own copy of the solicitation and amendments (if any), as well as other related documents.

Crash Injury Research and Engineering Network (CIREN)

Department of Transportation, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) | Published February 23, 2016  -  Deadline April 21, 2016

  UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION (USDOT) NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION (NHTSA)          Synopsis for Solicitation DTNH2216R00024                   Crash Injury Research and Engineering Network (CIREN)Introduction The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA) mission is to save lives, prevent injuries and reduce traffic-related health care and other economic costs.  The agency develops, promotes, and implements effective educational, engineering, and enforcement programs with the goal of ending vehicle crash tragedies and reducing economic costs associated with vehicle use and highway travel.  NHTSA strives to base its rulemaking and research priorities on findings from field crash data. In the late 1970s, NHTSA's National Center for Statistics and Analysis (NCSA) devised an approach to provide nationally-representative traffic crash data. NHTSA's NCSA operates data programs consisting of records-based systems (crash records recoded for uniformity) which include the Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS) and the National Automotive Sampling System General Estimates System (NASS-GES); and the investigation-based National Automotive Sampling System Crashworthiness Data System (NASS-CDS) and Special Crash Investigations (SCI) programs. While the nationally-representative data systems provide crucial data to understand overall trends in motor vehicle safety, more detailed data on injury causation were needed to support NHTSA research efforts. A recommendation from the National Academy of Sciences, in their 1985 publication "Injury in America," for multidisciplinary injury studies involving medical, engineering, and other research professionals led to the creation of injury-focused hospital-based studies of motor vehicle crash victims. Those efforts led to the creation of the trauma center-based Crash Injury Research and Engineering Network (CIREN) in 1997. This synopsis, in accordance with FAR 5.203(a), issues a 15 day public notification prior to the issuance of a solicitation DTNH2216R00024. NHTSA intends to issue a solicitation for a Full and Open Competition to provide data collection for Crash Injury Research and Engineering Network. NTHSA intends to award a multiple-award Indefinite-Delivery Indefinite-Quantity (IDIQ) contract whereby a combination of Firm Fixed Price and Cost Task Orders may be issued, in accordance with FAR16.504 and16.505. The applicable NAICS code and size standard for this acquisition are as follows:                 541910 and not greater than $15.0M            The anticipated period of performance is a 60 month base period.  The solicitation will be issued on or about March 22, 2016.  Scope of Work The objectives of this acquisition are to expand NHTSA's, and the public's, understanding of human injury causation in motor vehicle crashes by conducting in-depth investigations and performing multi-disciplinary reviews of case subjects' outcomes. The data generated in these studies will provide the impact biomechanics and automobile safety community with highly-detailed field-based data that can support trend analysis and research related to advanced dummies and models, injury criteria, restraint performance, and vehicle design. Results of work conducted under this acquisition will facilitate the reduction of motor vehicle crash-related injuries and fatalities.The objective is also to provide NHTSA with the capability to award Task Orders that require a range of skills and abilities, which could be called into use to conduct studies of real-world motor vehicle crash-related injuries. Multiple entities will be required to provide the services under the resultant contract.
