The stories of our nation and our people are told in the records and artifacts cared for in NARA facilities around the country and people can discover, use, and learn from this documentary heritage. The mission is to ensure ready access to the essential evidence that documents the rights of American citizens, the actions of Federal officials, and the national experience. 1.2 The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) has a requirement for maintenance and repair services for tape drives supporting the Archival Preservation System (APS) and the Archival Electronic Records Inspection and Control System (AERIC). The maintenance and repair services will cover 136 tape drives on-line (e.g. 3480, 3490, DLT, 8000, 9-track, etc.). This maintenance is needed due to repeated use and the age of the drives, and to ensure that they remain functional. Additional tape drives, not covered under this requirement, can be swapped out when needed or used for spare parts. 1.3 Most tape drives are utilized to process Unclassified, Title-13, and classified data for archival preservation purposes. The APS is a custom-developed software system used by NARA to manage the technical administration of accession, preservation, and reference of permanent, electronic records within NARA. As of recently, the APS is used to process classified (TS, TS-SCI) electronic records preservation and produce reference copy and also used for migration of the permanent unclassified record to the Electronic Records Archives System (ERA). The unclassified AERIC system is also used for verification of those permanent records processed by the APS system. The ERA system does not currently have the capability to extract electronic records from 3480, 3490, DLT, and 9-track tapes. These functions are to be subsumed by NARA's ERA system. 2.0 SCOPE 2.1 The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) has a requirement for maintenance and repair services for tape drives supporting the Archival Preservation System (APS) and Archival Electronic Records Inspection and Control System (AERIC). There are 136 tape drives (e.g. 3480, 3490, DLT, 8000, 9-track, etc.) that will require maintenance and repair services due to the age of the drives to ensure that the tape drives remain functional. 2.2 Quarterly Maintenance and Repair Services for Tape Drives 2.2.1 There are 136 tape drives on-line and ready to be used. However, not all tape drives are being used constantly. On each quarterly maintenance visit to NARA, the NARA Point of Contact (POC) will identify those tape drives which have been used excessively and need maintenance and those that are in need of repair. On a typical visit there will be approximately 20-25 tape drives needing maintenance and 2-7 of those will usually need minor repairs. The Contractor will determine if repairs can be done on-site or at its facility. 2.2.2 Contractor shall repair broken or malfunctioning drives and provide replacement parts as required. 2.2.3 Contractor shall remove sticky labels from tape drives. 2.2.4 Contractor shall provide preventative maintenance on the tape drives identified by the NARA POC. Preventative maintenance shall include:• Inspection of system and tape drives• Cleaning drives• Removal of sticky labels from tape drives• Making any necessary adjustments• Basic manufacturer suggested maintenance 2.3 Repairs to tape drives are required to be completed within one week of receiving approval from the NARA POC to perform the repair services. If repairs cannot be completed within one week, the Contractor shall inform the NARA POC immediately. 2.4 After each quarterly inspection, Contractor shall provide a maintenance report detailing any findings. The maintenance report must be submitted to the NARA POC within two days of the inspection. 2.5 Tape drives may be repaired onsite or offsite. 2.6 Contractor shall get approval from the NARA POC prior to performing any onsite or offsite repairs on malfunctioning drives. 2.7 Contractor shall provide all parts, tools, and personnel necessary to perform maintenance and repair services. 3.0 PLACE OF PERFORMANCE 3.1 Maintenance and repair services may be performed at the following location or offsite:National Archives and Records Administration8601 Adelphi RoadCollege Park, MD 20740 3.2 No transportation or travel expenses will be paid. 4.0 HOURS OF OPERATION 4.1 Work shall be undertaken during regular business hours, Monday through Friday, 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM ET, unless mutually agreed upon by the NARA Point of Contact and the Contractor.                                           ATTACHMENT 3ADDITIONAL NARA TERMS AND CONDITIONS(Addenda to FAR clause 52.212-4)   I.
