Animal Husbandry, Animal Care and Technical Support Services
Department of Health and Human Services, Food and Drug Administration | Published October 5, 2016 - Deadline November 18, 2016
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) (specifically the Center for Biological Evaluation and Research (CBER), the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER), the Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH), and the Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN)) has a requirement for animal husbandry support services for the (CBER/CDER/CDRH) White Oak Consolidated Animal Program (WOC AP) and (CFSAN) Muirkirk Road Complex (MRC/MOD-1) Animal Care and Use Programs (ACUP). The White Oak Complex is located in Silver Spring, MD and the Muirkirk Road Complex is located in Laurel MD.
The FDA requires animal husbandry support services to both animal research programs including but not limited to the provision of quality care to all research animals, sanitation of all animal care and diet preparation/formulation facilities and the provision of protocol-specified technical procedures support, as well as ancillary tasks necessary to accomplish these services, i.e.: quality control, occupational safety and health, inventory control, equipment maintenance, development and maintenance of standard operating procedures, and a comprehensive training program. The need for these services is paramount as the preponderance of the FDA's research mission can only be accomplished through animal research. Animal-based research projects are highly regulated and demand exemplary execution.
This solicitation is set aside 100% for small business.
This is a follow-on acquisition for continuous on-site Animal Care support services presently being performed by Priority One Services, Inc. (POS) under contract number HHSF223201000004I, Task Orders HHSF22301005T and HHSF22301004T.
Services are required at multiple locations. See attached Solicitation #FDA-SOL-1153590 and supporting documents: Attachments 1-9.
