NOVEL AND RAPID TOXIN AND ANTIGEN DETECTION METHODS (COMBINE)

NAICS: 541712. DHS seeks a rapid, inexpensive method to detect toxins and antigens in a cost-effective manner to support routine, daily screening of samples, some of which may be suspected of containing low amounts of a biological agents as defined under the select agent list. This project seeks to build on the legacy of successful DHS S&T detection and assay development projects. This Call will be conducted in accordance with the single-phased evaluation process as described under Section 1.6 of OBAA Solicitation HSHQDC-14-R-B00009, which was posted to FBO.gov on June 16, 2014, at https://www.fbo.gov/index?mode=form&id=59fb4fd55df126478cb38df3945696f2&tab=ntype . This Call will consist of the solicitation, receipt, and evaluation of a full proposal limited to 30 pages, which page count EXCLUDES the formal transmittal letter, cover page, summary of costs and related information, table of contents, and resumes/biographical information for proposed performers. Once the peer/scientific review process for the full proposal has been completed, offerors will be notified via email or in writing that the proposal has been (1) selected, (2) selected but not funded, or (3) not selected for award. This OBAA Call Technical Topic Area of Interest is Chemical and Biological Research and Development CBD.01 - Diagnostics and Agent Characterization: Research to develop rapid, robust, and affordable diagnostic tools to support detection, response, recovery, and real-time bio-surveillance and situational awareness. CBD's interest in diagnostics includes efforts in the areas of biological assays, sample preparation, advanced diagnostics (e.g. multiplex, high throughput, low-cost, field-deployable, complex sample matrices (environmental, milk, blood, oral/nasal, sputum), multiple target types, pathogen agnostic diagnostics), and agent characterization of chemical or biological materials. CBD's interest includes new or improved rapid diagnostic tests that facilitate foreign animal disease (FAD) outbreak surveillance, response, and recovery in livestock. This project seeks to build on the legacy of successful DHS S&T detection and assay development projects. DHS S&T requires the rapid detection (within 30 minutes) of biothreat and select agents, specifically, biological toxins, and bacterial and viral antigens. DHS is seeking methods that are novel, yield rapid results, are easy to use, reasonably priced (< 5-10 dollars/test), with high sensitivity and specificity for both environmental and clinically relevant amounts of target species, and based on immunological methods. Therefore, the "rapid" methods listed below WILL NOT QUALIFY for funding under this Open BAA Topic: *Enzyme Linked Immuno-Sorbet Assays (ELISA), *Luminex or similar synthetic based, latex, polystyrene, or magnetic based, and antibody coupled, suspension bead systems, or *Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometry (FTIR), RAMAN Spectroscopy, Surface-Enhanced Raman Scattering (SERS), Photonics, Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR), or similar spectroscopic, electrical or magnetic field-based methods. Acceptable methods could include biological readout (not in an animal), living cell, or cellular component based methods, which are capable of providing the rapid detection of biothreat agents, with easily interpretable and readable results. The technology may be laboratory based but must be based on an economical and inexpensive platform and technology. Proposers are encouraged to submit their proposal for platforms and systems that are under development, and which fulfill the requirements listed in this BAA. The platform to be proposed should be capable of eventually being CLIA Waivable (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act). Although subject to official fiscal appropriation and availability, it is anticipated that approximately $444,106 of FY 2015 funds will be available for any resultant awards under this BAA Call. Questions concerning this OBAA must be submitted via email to the Contract Specialist at tanisha.walcott@hq.dhs.gov no later than 3:00 PM EST, March 2, 2015, in the format specified in the attachment to the notice at FBO.gov. Full proposals are accepted, no white papers necessary. FULL PROPOSALS ARE DUE BY 3:00 PM EST ON MARCH 23, 2015.

NAICS: 562910. THIS ANNOUNCEMENT CONSTITUTES A PRESOLICITATION NOTICE OF A FUTURE PROCUREMENT. [Solicitation FA8903-14-R-0034 has been cancelled and will be resolicited as FA8903-15-R-0034 in accordance with FAR 15.206(e) to increase the ceiling and make adjustments to sections L and M. The contracting officer anticipates releasing a new solicitation in 2-3 weeks from February 17, 2015, under FA8903-15-R-0034.] 1. This requirement is to provide a full range of responsive environmental remediation actions necessary to protect human health and the environment. It includes rapid response and removal of environmental media contaminations and site restoration activities located on BRAC bases in EPA regions 5-8 (Central). The AFICA BRAC Environmental Construction and Services Requirements Contract (BECSRC) will include a 5-year ordering period with 24 additional months for performance completion. 2. The purpose of setting up each BECSRC is to have a PK tool in place for "pop-up" requirements. Pop-ups are frequently occurring small, unplanned, and out-of-cycle requirements that typically require a quick initial response from the Air Force. A Requirements Contract is the most suitable contract vehicle 1) because the nature of pop-ups are the AFCEC cannot predetermine the precise quantities of services that will be needed during the ordering/performance period and 2) because requirements contracts are set up with only one contractor to provide service (FAR 16.503), which agreeably shortens the acquisition timeline. AFCEC/CIB has been looking for a way to streamline acquisition timelines to address time-sensitive requirements. A Requirements Contract very neatly provides a solution to these issues/considerations. 3. Source selection is being conducting using a phased evaluation process which is sometimes referred to as a "down-select" as well as using Full Trade-off source selection criteria. Volumes I & II will be required in "Phase 1" and Volumes III & IV in "Phase 2." In accordance with FAR 15.304(e), all evaluation factors other than Cost/Price, when combined, are significantly more important than cost or price. To make the process more efficient, the CO is limiting the amount of information that offerors must submit initially in order to minimize the amount of material interested offerors must prepare and the government must evaluate to conduct the source selection.
