Quotes are due By 23 June 2016 at 1:00 PM CST to sarah.c.schauf@aphis.usda.gov SCOPEThe USDA, ARS, , National Centers for Animal Health has a requirement/need for a Chemical Control Purchase and Service Agreement. See attached information for complete specifications. DELIVERY TO: National Centers for Animal Health 1920 Dayton Avenue Ames, IA 50010 All Materials, Labor, Equipment, Freight or Shipping/delivery charges. It is anticipated that a fixed Price Contract will be awarded. Award will be made for a 1-year base period with four optional 12 month renewal periods. Normal scheduled inspections and service work will be performed during regular workdays, 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM, local time. An extension of time before and after normal working hours will be considered upon a 2-week advance written request from the Contractor and may be considered for approval by the Contracting Officer. The National Centers for Animal Health has the need to automate boiler sampling, boiler chemical control and boiler blow down system. The Boiler system consists of a condensate tank, DA, softeners and six boilers (operating intermittently) to provide 125 psi steam to a large campus. All boiler chemicals and boiler water will need to be continually tracked and adjusted by the automatic controller. Quotes shall will include purchase of the automatic boiler chemical feed controllers, sample probe(s) and associated equipment and purchase of the boiler conductivity probes, assemblies and automatic valve packages/assemblies. The contract will include two service visits per year for a full service cleaning, replacement of probes (as needed), calibration of probes (as needed) and software updates (as needed). The chemicals that will be used in conjunction with the controllers will need to be able to be tracked automatically by the controllers. Current chemicals in use are but not limited to Nalco NALCO® 1720, Nalco NexGuard® 22310, Nalco Tri-Act 1820 and Nalco NALCO® 8735.         BOILER CHEMICAL AND BLOWDOWN AUTOMATION: Currently operators perform water tests once per day, the results of which are only a snapshot of the system at any given time. Steam demand at various times of the day can result in drastically differing water test results and boilers can easily wander out of control range. As steam demand on campus fluctuates, the boiler system experiences swings resulting in either high conductivity/chemicals out of range and steam carryover or low conductivity/chemicals out of range and high water use. Automation of chemical monitoring, chemical feed and boiler blow down control will allow for constant real-time control of boiler water quality resulting in more efficient use of chemicals The automatic controller will need to detect and react to the conditions inside the boiler system under actual operating temperatures and pressures, allowing proven technology to deliver superior boiler system performance. Each boiler blowdown line will need one conductivity probe and one automated valve for blowdown control. Each boiler will operate with continuous blowdown. Attached is a diagram of a potential continuous blowdown valve setup. The automatic controller needs to be able to be connected to the internet. The automatic controller will use wireless phone technology to connect and report controller information. This will allow for real-time alarm notifications to be sent out to existing building automation systems during system upsets. The unit will monitor the boiler conductivities and increase or decrease blowdowns to meet a desired setpoint. The controller needs to automatically log data which shall be customizable to allow for dissemination of data reports to include performance trending. . The chemical sample point will be on the discharge side of the feedwater pumps, which will detect the chemicals and at Temp ORP residuals and control the chemical pumps accordingly. The two service visits per year will include replacement of the NCSM probe (or like). All other probes will be owned by the USDA so recommendations will be made if new probes will need to be ordered. Includes all reagents and calibration solutions for these two site visits.

VACATION: 2 weeks paid vacation after 1 year of service with a contractor orsuccessor; 3 weeks after 5 years, and 4 weeks after 15 years. Length of serviceincludes the whole span of continuous service with the present contractor orsuccessor, wherever employed, and with the predecessor contractors in theperformance of similar work at the same Federal facility. (Reg. 29 CFR 4.173) HOLIDAYS: A minimum of ten paid holidays per year, New Year's Day, Martin LutherKing Jr's Birthday, Washington's Birthday, Memorial Day, Independence Day, LaborDay, Columbus Day, Veterans' Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day. (Acontractor may substitute for any of the named holidays another day off with pay inaccordance with a plan communicated to the employees involved.) (See 29 CFR 4174)   THE OCCUPATIONS WHICH HAVE NUMBERED FOOTNOTES IN PARENTHESES RECEIVE THE FOLLOWING: 1) COMPUTER EMPLOYEES: Under the SCA at section 8(b), this wage determination doesnot apply to any employee who individually qualifies as a bona fide executive,administrative, or professional employee as defined in 29 C.F.R. Part 541. Becausemost Computer System Analysts and Computer Programmers who are compensated at a ratenot less than $27.63 (or on a salary or fee basis at a rate not less than $455 perweek) an hour would likely qualify as exempt computer professionals, (29 C.F.R. 541.400) wage rates may not be listed on this wage determination for all occupationswithin those job families. In addition, because this wage determination may notlist a wage rate for some or all occupations within those job families if the surveydata indicates that the prevailing wage rate for the occupation equals or exceeds$27.63 per hour conformances may be necessary for certain nonexempt employees. Forexample, if an individual employee is nonexempt but nevertheless performs dutieswithin the scope of one of the Computer Systems Analyst or Computer Programmeroccupations for which this wage determination does not specify an SCA wage rate,then the wage rate for that employee must be conformed in accordance with theconformance procedures described in the conformance note included on this wagedetermination. Additionally, because job titles vary widely and change quickly in the computerindustry, job titles are not determinative of the application of the computerprofessional exemption. Therefore, the exemption applies only to computer employeeswho satisfy the compensation requirements and whose primary duty consists of:(1) The application of systems analysis techniques and procedures, includingconsulting with users, to determine hardware, software or system functionalspecifications;(2) The design, development, documentation, analysis, creation, testing ormodification of computer systems or programs, including prototypes, based on andrelated to user or system design specifications;(3) The design, documentation, testing, creation or modification of computerprograms related to machine operating systems; or(4) A combination of the aforementioned duties, the performance of whichrequires the same level of skills.

As used in this clause- "Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number" means the 9-digit number assigned by Dun and Bradstreet, Inc. (D&B) to identify unique business entities, which is used as the identification number for Federal contractors. "Data Universal Numbering System+4 (DUNS+4) number" means the DUNS number assigned by D&B plus a 4-character suffix that may be assigned by a business concern. (D&B has no affiliation with this 4-character suffix.) This 4-character suffix may be assigned at the discretion of the business concern to establish additional SAM records for identifying alternative Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) accounts (see the FAR at subpart 32.11) for the same concern. "Registered in the System for Award Management (SAM) database" means that- (1) The Contractor has entered all mandatory information, including the DUNS number or the DUNS+4 number, the Contractor and Government Entity (CAGE) code, as well as data required by the Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act of 2006 (see Subpart 4.14), into the SAM database; (2) The Contractor has completed the Core, Assertions, Representations and Certifications, and Points of Contact sections of the registration in the SAM database; (3) The Government has validated all mandatory data fields, to include validation of the Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The Contractor will be required to provide consent for TIN validation to the Government as a part of the SAM registration process; and (4) The Government has marked the record "Active". "System for Award Management (SAM)" means the primary Government repository for prospective Federal awardee and Federal awardee information and the centralized Government system for certain contracting, grants, and other assistance-related processes. It includes- (1) Data collected from prospective Federal awardees required for the conduct of business with the Government; (2) Prospective contractor-submitted annual representations and certifications in accordance with FAR Subpart 4.14; and (3) Identification of those parties excluded from receiving Federal contracts, certain subcontracts, and certain types of Federal financial and non-financial assistance and benefits. (b) The Contractor is responsible for the accuracy and completeness of the data within the SAM database, and for any liability resulting from the Government's reliance on inaccurate or incomplete data. To remain registered in the SAM database after the initial registration, the Contractor is required to review and update on an annual basis, from the date of initial registration or subsequent updates, its information in the SAM database to ensure it is current, accurate and complete. Updating information in the SAM does not alter the terms and conditions of this contract and is not a substitute for a properly executed contractual document. (c) (1) (i) If a Contractor has legally changed its business name, doing business as name, or division name (whichever is shown on the contract), or has transferred the assets used in performing the contract, but has not completed the necessary requirements regarding novation and change-of-name agreements in subpart 42.12, the Contractor shall provide the responsible Contracting Officer a minimum of one business day's written notification of its intention to- (A) Change the name in the SAM database; (B) Comply with the requirements of subpart 42.12 of the FAR; and (C) Agree in writing to the timeline and procedures specified by the responsible Contracting Officer. The Contractor shall provide with the notification sufficient documentation to support the legally changed name. (ii) If the Contractor fails to comply with the requirements of paragraph (c)(1)(i) of this clause, or fails to perform the agreement at paragraph (c)(1)(i)(C) of this clause, and, in the absence of a properly executed novation or change-of-name agreement, the SAM information that shows the Contractor to be other than the Contractor indicated in the contract will be considered to be incorrect information within the meaning of the "Suspension of Payment" paragraph of the electronic funds transfer (EFT) clause of this contract. (2) The Contractor shall not change the name or address for EFT payments or manual payments, as appropriate, in the SAM record to reflect an assignee for the purpose of assignment of claims (see FAR subpart 32.8, Assignment of Claims). Assignees shall be separately registered in the SAM. Information provided to the Contractor's SAM record that indicates payments, including those made by EFT, to an ultimate recipient other than that Contractor will be considered to be incorrect information within the meaning of the "Suspension of Payment" paragraph of the EFT clause of this contract. (3) The Contractor shall ensure that the DUNS number is maintained with Dun & Bradstreet throughout the life of the contract. The Contractor shall communicate any change to the DUNS number to the Contracting Officer within 30 days after the change, so an appropriate modification can be issued to update the data on the contract. A change in the DUNS number does not necessarily require a novation be accomplished. Dun & Bradstreet may be contacted (i) Via the internet at http://fedgov.dnb.com/webform or if the contractor does not have internet access, it may call Dun and Bradstreet at 1-866-705-5711 if located within the United States; or (ii) If located outside the United States, by contacting the local Dun and Bradstreet office.

As used in this clause- "Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number" means the 9-digit number assigned by Dun and Bradstreet, Inc. (D&B) to identify unique business entities, which is used as the identification number for Federal contractors. "Data Universal Numbering System+4 (DUNS+4) number" means the DUNS number assigned by D&B plus a 4-character suffix that may be assigned by a business concern. (D&B has no affiliation with this 4-character suffix.) This 4-character suffix may be assigned at the discretion of the business concern to establish additional SAM records for identifying alternative Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) accounts (see the FAR at subpart 32.11) for the same concern. "Registered in the System for Award Management (SAM) database" means that- (1) The Contractor has entered all mandatory information, including the DUNS number or the DUNS+4 number, the Contractor and Government Entity (CAGE) code, as well as data required by the Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act of 2006 (see Subpart 4.14), into the SAM database; (2) The Contractor has completed the Core, Assertions, Representations and Certifications, and Points of Contact sections of the registration in the SAM database; (3) The Government has validated all mandatory data fields, to include validation of the Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The Contractor will be required to provide consent for TIN validation to the Government as a part of the SAM registration process; and (4) The Government has marked the record "Active". "System for Award Management (SAM)" means the primary Government repository for prospective Federal awardee and Federal awardee information and the centralized Government system for certain contracting, grants, and other assistance-related processes. It includes- (1) Data collected from prospective Federal awardees required for the conduct of business with the Government; (2) Prospective contractor-submitted annual representations and certifications in accordance with FAR Subpart 4.14; and (3) Identification of those parties excluded from receiving Federal contracts, certain subcontracts, and certain types of Federal financial and non-financial assistance and benefits. (b) The Contractor is responsible for the accuracy and completeness of the data within the SAM database, and for any liability resulting from the Government's reliance on inaccurate or incomplete data. To remain registered in the SAM database after the initial registration, the Contractor is required to review and update on an annual basis, from the date of initial registration or subsequent updates, its information in the SAM database to ensure it is current, accurate and complete. Updating information in the SAM does not alter the terms and conditions of this contract and is not a substitute for a properly executed contractual document. (c) (1) (i) If a Contractor has legally changed its business name, doing business as name, or division name (whichever is shown on the contract), or has transferred the assets used in performing the contract, but has not completed the necessary requirements regarding novation and change-of-name agreements in subpart 42.12, the Contractor shall provide the responsible Contracting Officer a minimum of one business day's written notification of its intention to- (A) Change the name in the SAM database; (B) Comply with the requirements of subpart 42.12 of the FAR; and (C) Agree in writing to the timeline and procedures specified by the responsible Contracting Officer. The Contractor shall provide with the notification sufficient documentation to support the legally changed name. (ii) If the Contractor fails to comply with the requirements of paragraph (c)(1)(i) of this clause, or fails to perform the agreement at paragraph (c)(1)(i)(C) of this clause, and, in the absence of a properly executed novation or change-of-name agreement, the SAM information that shows the Contractor to be other than the Contractor indicated in the contract will be considered to be incorrect information within the meaning of the "Suspension of Payment" paragraph of the electronic funds transfer (EFT) clause of this contract. (2) The Contractor shall not change the name or address for EFT payments or manual payments, as appropriate, in the SAM record to reflect an assignee for the purpose of assignment of claims (see FAR subpart 32.8, Assignment of Claims). Assignees shall be separately registered in the SAM. Information provided to the Contractor's SAM record that indicates payments, including those made by EFT, to an ultimate recipient other than that Contractor will be considered to be incorrect information within the meaning of the "Suspension of Payment" paragraph of the EFT clause of this contract. (3) The Contractor shall ensure that the DUNS number is maintained with Dun & Bradstreet throughout the life of the contract. The Contractor shall communicate any change to the DUNS number to the Contracting Officer within 30 days after the change, so an appropriate modification can be issued to update the data on the contract. A change in the DUNS number does not necessarily require a novation be accomplished. Dun & Bradstreet may be contacted (i) Via the internet at http://fedgov.dnb.com/webform or if the contractor does not have internet access, it may call Dun and Bradstreet at 1-866-705-5711 if located within the United States; or (ii) If located outside the United States, by contacting the local Dun and Bradstreet office.

(Applies only if the contract value is expected to exceed the simplified acquisition threshold.) The offeror certifies, to the best of its knowledge and belief, that the offeror and/or any of its principals--(1) [_] Are, [_] are not presently debarred, suspended, proposed for debarment, or declared ineligible for the award of contracts by any Federal agency; (2) [_] Have, [_] have not, within a three-year period preceding this offer, been convicted of or had a civil judgment rendered against them for: commission of fraud or a criminal offense in connection with obtaining, attempting to obtain, or performing a Federal, state or local government contract or subcontract; violation of Federal or state antitrust statutes relating to the submission of offers; or commission of embezzlement, theft, forgery, bribery, falsification or destruction of records, making false statements, tax evasion, violating Federal criminal tax laws, or receiving stolen property; and(3) [_] Are, [_] are not presently indicted for, or otherwise criminally or civilly charged by a Government entity with, commission of any of these offenses enumerated in paragraph (h)(2) of this clause; and(4) [_] Have, [_] have not, within a three-year period preceding this offer, been notified of any delinquent Federal taxes in an amount that exceeds $3,500 for which the liability remains unsatisfied.(i) Taxes are considered delinquent if both of the following criteria apply:(A) The tax liability is finally determined.

In the case of a judicial challenge to the liability, the liability is not finally determined until all judicial appeal rights have been exhausted.(B) The taxpayer is delinquent in making payment. A taxpayer is delinquent if the taxpayer has failed to pay the tax liability when full payment was due and required.

In the course of the hearing, the taxpayer is entitled to contest the underlying tax liability because the taxpayer has had no prior opportunity to contest the liability. This is not a delinquent tax because it is not a final tax liability. Should the taxpayer seek tax court review, this will not be a final tax liability until the taxpayer has exercised all judicial appeal rights.(C) The taxpayer has entered into an installment agreement pursuant to I.R.C. §6159. The taxpayer is making timely payments and is in full compliance with the agreement terms. The taxpayer is not delinquent because the taxpayer is not currently required to make full payment.(D) The taxpayer has filed for bankruptcy protection.
