G--Safe Haven Beds for Homeless Veterans

Department of Veterans Affairs, Cincinnati VAMC | Published February 18, 2016  -  Deadline March 10, 2016
cpvs

SERVICE REQUIRED Safe Haven Program for 12 beds in Akron, Ohio A Safe Haven Model is a 24-hour/7-days-a-week community-based early recovery model of supportive housing that serves hard-to-reach, hard-to-engage homeless individuals with severe mental illness and substance use disorders who are on the streets and have been unable or unwilling to participate in supportive services which are referred to as a "low demand" model. The program places no treatment participation demands on residents but expects them to transition from unsafe and unstable street life to permanent housing and re-engage with treatment services. Housing in this program provides private or semi-private accommodations and allow's a 24-hour residence which are typically six (6) months with the option to extend based on clinical needs. In July 2010, under the leadership and direction of the Veterans Affairs National Center on Homelessness Among Veterans, the National Homeless Program Office funded four Safe Haven model development projects to develop and implement a model that could be replicated throughout the Department of Veterans Affairs, broadening the agency's homeless continuum of care. The Cleveland Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC) anticipates award of an indefinite delivery indefinite quantity firm-fixed price contract, based on the contents of this solicitation. BACKGROUND Ending homelessness among Veterans by 2015 is a national priority. The goal and plan for achieving it were introduced by the Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary in November 2009 at the National Summit on Ending Veterans Homelessness. In June 2010, the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH) released Opening Doors: Federal Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness, which is fully aligned with this goal. Safe Haven Model is one of evidence based practices to help homeless attain safe and stable housing. The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), plan to end Veteran homelessness calls for enhancing current homeless service capacity as well as developing new programs and initiatives in concert with community and federal partners. The intent of this Performance Work Statement (PWS) is for Cleveland VAMC to engage community provider(s) to offer homeless Veterans services through a "Safe Haven" model of residential care. Through its Healthcare for Homeless Veterans (HCHV) program, the Cleveland VAMC provides case management and outreach services to Veterans and facilitates their access to a broad range of medical, mental health, and rehabilitative services. HCHV's goal is to engage homeless Veterans in treatment and place them in a safe and secure environment that supports their rehabilitation goals. Cleveland VAMC's HCHV Program, an essential and critical part of Veterans Health Administration (VHA), is vital for providing a gateway to VA and community supportive services for eligible Veterans who are homeless. The HCHV Contract Residential Program for homeless Veterans is a vital program focused on addressing the needs of the most vulnerable and at-risk homeless Veterans. Ensuring that Veterans can be placed in community-based programs which provide quality housing and services that meet the needs of this special population is a particular focus of the HCHV program. Recent national trends in service provision for the homeless outside of the VA system include the utilization of Safe Havens as an alternative to shelter care or as a placement post unsuccessful discharge from an inpatient or residential treatment program due to relapse-related issues. A Safe Haven is a form of supportive housing that serves hard-to-reach homeless persons with severe mental illnesses and/or substance use disorders who are on the streets and have been unable or unwilling to participate in more traditional supportive services. The VA is limited by current grant authorities and existing program structures and practices and cannot fund harm-reduction treatment models. The VA has been unable to provide the types of services focused on shelter diversion and early stabilization in community-based environments. Place of Performance: Akron, OH (Summit County)

66--THERMOPHORETIC PARTICLE SAMPLER AND PAS ARRAYS WITH PRE-NUMBERED SEM STUBS

National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Glenn Research Center | Published April 9, 2015  -  Deadline April 15, 2015
cpvs

NASA/GRC has a requirement for: a thermophoretic particle aerosol sampler (TPS) and passive aerosol samplers (PAS) Arrays with pre-numbered SEM Stubs The thermophoretic particle aerosol sampler must meet the following requirements: Collection of particles must be directly on a microscopy substrate, such as a TEM grid Particles must be collected using a gentle deposition mechanism, the thermophoretic force (electrostatic deposition is much more harsh) TEM grid must be held in place magnetically in order to facilitate gentle removal TEM grids must be protected by a cartridge cover before & after sampling, and must be easy to load/reload in the sampler Device weight must be less than 350 grams Battery life must be close to 8 hours Battery charging operation must not exceed 4 hours Small volumetric flow rate is required for long-duration sampling (5 ml/min) The aerosol sampler must be programmable to run for a set sampling duration, up to 8 hours The aerosol sampler must have active cooling for any Peltier devices incorporated in the design The passive aerosol sampler must meet the following requirements: Five passive samplers must be mounted and numbered in an array for staggered sampling operations Particles must be collected on the sampler by inertial deposition and diffusion The particles must be collected on a microscopy substrate, such as a SEM stub A mesh cover must protect the collection substrate from larger debris The sampler must be able to collect particles up to about 200 micrometers in diameter NASA/GRC intends to purchase the items from RJ Lee Group. Sole-source justification for purchasing RJ Lee Group TPS-100: The TPS-100, from RJ Lee Group, is the only thermophoretic sampler that is commercially available. Another compact and portable sampler exists on the market but it is NOT a thermophoretic sampler. This other sampler uses electrostatic deposition rather than thermophoretic deposition of particles. The electrostatic force is much harsher than thermophoresis, and it also requires the charging of the particles prior to collection. The high voltage electric field in the electrostatic deposition device can cause electromagnetic interference (EMI) issues which is not acceptable in our intended sampling environment. Furthermore, charging efficiency of particles may not be 100%, and therefore not all the particles may be captured. Another risk is that particle charging is somewhat material dependent. Therefore the electrostatic deposition device is not a suitable device for our sampling purposes. Sole-source justification for purchasing RJ Lee Group PAS arrays: The Passive Aerosol Samplers we are procuring were developed at the University of North Carolina (UNC) and therefore are known in the aerosol literature as UNC-PAS. They are fabricated to order by RJ Lee Group. These samplers will be custom-made into 5-piece arrays for our specific sampling needs. Other devices called passive samplers are for collecting gaseous samples, but the PAS described in the specifications is specifically for collecting aerosol particles. The Government intends to acquire a commercial item using FAR Part 12. Oral communications are not acceptable in response to this notice. NASA Clause 1852.215-84, Ombudsman, is applicable.

Binder Jet Printer for Advanced Additive Manufacturing

National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Glenn Research Center | Published August 23, 2016  -  Deadline August 31, 2016
cpvs

NASA/GRC has a requirement for a Binder Jetting Machine with associated equipment and software, Quantity (1) one.NASA/GRC intends to purchase the items from The ExOne Company, North Huntingdon, PA. NASA GRC has initiated a new research area on additive manufacturing of ceramic matrix composites in support of our mission focus on high temperature materials for aircraft engines. As part of this focus, we recently completed a year-long development program with a contractor in which we adapted the binder jet process to optimize it for the fabrication of ceramic matrix composite (CMC) materials. The binder jet process was chosen because it is considered by the technical experts in the field (both in industry & NASA GRC) to be the most suitable for fabricating CMC's. The powder bed processing approach allows for the optimization and integration of the matrix and the reinforcing fiber materials. Also, the binder jetting process, allows for opportunities for improving the matrix compositions and properties as well as the density. In the recently ended effort, we had used the contractor's ExOne binder jet machine for the development of CMCs. NASA GRC does not currently have the capability to do the binder jet processing in-house because we do not have the necessary machine. This procurement will provide that capability. This purchase will allow for direct control of the additive manufacturing approach so that all steps in the process can be optimized. The ExOne binder jet system is currently the only one which allows for the development and manufacturing of tailored powders, fiber reinforcement, and jetting material for making silicon carbide (SiC)-based CMCs. The CMC materials that we use for this work are developmental and are adjusted/modified as needed to optimize the quality and mechanical properties of the composites that are produced. NASA GRC has very stringent material requirements that we must meet (strength, durability, operating temperature) in order for the materials to function suitably in an aircraft engine environment. This requires experimentation with the material compositions and constituents to identify the optimal materials that will result in the properties that we need. To meet the requirements for the fabrication of CMCs, the additive manufacturing machine must have the ability for powder bed processing with binder jetting for the buildup of parts layer upon layer. The machine must be versatile in its capability so that it is suitable for printing with powders which support the manufacturing of ceramic materials (SiC powders and SiC chopped fibers). The build volume should be sufficient for research and development with the ability to manufacture parts that are at least 6" length x 2.5" width x 2.5" height. For a machine that achieves only the minimum build volume, the ceramic manufacturing processes should be transferrable to an additive manufacturing machine that has a larger build volume. The print speed per layer should be 30-60 seconds. The layer thicknesses should be variable with a minimum of 0.002" (50.8 µm). Print resolution of 63.5 µm/60.0 µm/50-100 µm in the X/Y/Z directions is required. Powder size capability should be in the 15-50 microns range. The printer should use piezo-electric printheads which allows for precise jetting control of binder materials and the use of lower temperature binders compared to thermal printheads. Computer operation and interface software is required for print control, printer maintenance, and slicing of build layouts with data interface formats to include STL, CLI, and SLC. The overall system should be integrated with capability for oven curing and furnace sintering of printed parts. The powder bed processing should allow for the tailoring of ceramic powder blends and the incorporation of fiber reinforcement and be suitable for the additive manufacturing of ceramics and ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) consisting of oxide and non-oxide ceramics. Therefore it is more cost effective and in the best interest of the government to purchase the ExOne binder jetting machine and eliminate the need for an external contract to complete the process development that is needed to fabricate durable and fully-dense CMC's. The capability will allow for a direct continuation of the previous CMC development using additive manufacturing without the delays and increased cost that would be required for different and less suitable equipment. The Government intends to acquire a commercial item using FAR Part 12.Interested organizations may submit their capabilities and qualifications to perform the effort in writing to the identified point of contact not later than 4:30 p.m. local time on August 31, 2016.

The website provides access information as well as EDA Help Desk Support.(END OF CLAUSE)   DFAS 52.223-9000, "ENVIRONMENTALLY PREFERABLE PRODUCTS" (July 2013) The Environmentally Preferable Products clause is included in this contract to articulate the Government's policies on Green Contracting. FAR 23.403 sets forth the Federal Government's policy to acquire items composed of the highest percentage of recycled-content practical, in a cost effective manner while still obtaining other contracting goals. Recycled-content products are identified in the Environmental Protection Agency's Comprehensive Procurement Guidelines (CPGs). The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) will be producing a similar list which designates Bio-based products. EPA guideline items (and USDA designated bio-based products, when designated) are seen as the minimum that should be considered when evaluating environmentally preferable materials. Other environmentally preferable materials and products not listed, but commonly used in industry outside of the Government, should also be considered. Executive Order 13423 (January 24, 2007) required federal agencies to use sustainable environmental practices, including acquisition of bio-based, environmentally preferable, energy-efficient, water-efficient, and recycled-content products. Moreover, it required that paper of at least 30 percent post-consumer fiber content must be acquired or used in Agency acquisitions of goods and services. Executive Order 13514 (October 5, 2009), required federal agencies to analyze internal processes and revise reporting requirements in order to achieve such results as improvement of water use and efficiency, promoting pollution prevention and elimination of waste. But more particularly as related to procurement, an emphasis was placed on efforts to advance sustainable acquisitions to ensure that 95 percent of new contract actions including task and delivery orders, for products and services with the exception of acquisition of weapon systems, are energy-efficient (Energy Star or Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) designated - FAR 52.223-15, and -16 when specific to computer products), water-efficient (Goals within Executive Order 13514), bio-based (FAR 52.223-1 and -2), environmentally preferable (FAR 52.223-10) and/or Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT - FAR 52.223-16) certified, non-ozone depleting (FAR 52.223-11), contain recycled content, or are non-toxic or less-toxic alternatives (FAR 52.223-3 and DFARS 252.223-7006), where such products and services meet agency performance requirements. § 1. Mandatory Use of Paper and Other Products with Recycled Content. (a) All paper utilized in the performance of this contract must be of at least 30 percent post-consumer fiber content. (b) The contractor affirmatively acknowledges that it will, to the maximum extent practicable, use sustainable environmental practices including acquisition of bio-based, environmentally preferable, energy-efficient, water-efficient, and recycled-content products in the performance of this contract that meet the recycled-content recommendations for EPA designated items, which are found at http://www.epa.gov/epaoswer/non-hw/procure/products.htm. In addition, by responding to this solicitation the contractor is certifying the deliverables required under this contract shall meet the recycled-content recommendations for EPA designated items (FAR 52.223-17). § 2 Notice of Green Alternatives in Offerors' Product/Service. (a) When offering a product or service that contains "Green" components as that term is defined at http://www.epa.gov/epaoswer/non-hw/procure/products.htm, the contractor shall make the Contracting Officer aware of such facts in the submission of their quote or proposal. (b) The contractor, when appropriate, shall comply with FAR Clause 52.223-9 Estimate of Percentage of Recovered Material Content for EPA Designated Products, and provide the certification required by FAR 52.223-4, when required. § 3 Affirmative Duty of Contractors to Adhere to Green Contracting Policy. (a) Whenever practicable, the Contractor has an affirmative duty to examine its packaging to eliminate or reduce waste by volume, toxicity and/or weight and to utilize or substitute recyclable material for non-recyclable material in packaging. (b) Whenever practicable, the Contractor has an affirmative duty to find other materials utilized in the delivery of services under this contract and examine whether it can reduce waste by volume, toxicity and/or weight and to utilize or substitute recyclable materials for non-recyclable materials of items consumed in the furnishing of their services. (End of clause) DAS 52.233.9000 Agency Protests (March 2014) Agency protests shall be resolved by the contracting officer. As an alternative, an independent review at a level above the contracting officer is available upon request by an offeror.
