Government Owned GE Bio-Science Equipment Maintenance

Department of Health and Human Services, National Institutes of Health | Published May 4, 2016  -  Deadline May 19, 2016

The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), located in the Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, is one of the 27 Institutes and Centers composing the National Institutes of Health. The mission of NIEHS is dedicated to reducing the burden of diseases and dysfunctions associated with the environment. This mission is accomplished by conducting basic and applied research into the effects of environmental exposures on biological systems and human health, on the identification of susceptible human sub populations and on the interaction between the environment, genetics and age. This is not a Requirements Contract. The GE Healthcare Government Owned Equipment are used by multiple research groups in the Division of Intramural Research (DIR) and the Division of the National Toxicology Program (DNTP). The study of proteins and enzymes is essential to the research mission of the Division of Intramural Research (DIR). Characterizing proteins requires reliable and reproducible methodology of chromatography in order to obtain pure protein from its tissue source. To ensure that the instrumentation provides reliable and consistent results with minimum downtime, it is necessary to obtain periodic preventive maintenance, repair service by field service engineers with specific technical expertise, manufacturer-certified replacement parts, and the latest software updates and version upgrades. This service agreement shall provide qualified personnel to perform a comprehensive preventive maintenance plan including inspection, preventive maintenance, repair service, and software maintenance as required by the Division of Intramural Research (DIR) and the Division of the National Toxicology Program (DNTP) at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), Research Triangle Park, North Carolina.

70--SimActive software to support on-going field research

Environmental Protection Agency, Office of Acquisition Management (OAM) | Published October 8, 2015  -  Deadline October 15, 2015

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)/Office of Research and Development (ORD)/National Exposure Research Laboratory (NERL) requires a software system for the production of orthorectified datasets from imagery collected by EPA's aerial photography system. SimActive orthorectification and mosaic software meets EPA's requirement through the utilization of photogrammetric-based automated aerotriangulation methods for 3D scene generation and automated feature extraction. This data is needed to support on-going field studies under ORD's Air. Climate and Energy (ACE) research program. Simactive Correlator 3D software is the only software that is both compatible with EPA's Hasselblad and Canon camera systems and inertial navigation system (Oxford Survey) and can generate the required geospatial products listed above at the required quality that meets EPA's Geospatial Data Quality Assurance Project Plans (EPA QA/G-5G). SimActive software is also the only software that is compatible with planned future instrument camera and inertial navigation system procurements (Phase One camera and Oxford Survey). An extensive market research effort resulted in no other vendor having the required capabilities that does not require the purchase of an integrated proprietary camera and software system. Other manufacturers' products that were researched required the purchase of both the camera and software to produce the required geospatial data. EPA currently has several high quality aerial mapping cameras. Procurement of a camera and software solution would be a duplication of cost and not an efficient use of resources. The intent of this synopsis is to state the Government's intention to sole source this acquisition to SimActive, Inc. Therefore, no solicitation (RFQ) is available. The circumstance permitting Other than Full and Open Competition is FAR 6.302-1 Sole Source, Only one responsible source and no other supplies or service will satisfy agency requirements.
