The Research Technologies Branch (RTB), Protein Chemistry Section (PCS) requires a service agreement for two (2) PROCISE Protein Sequencers that will maintain the equipment in optimal operating condition. The PROCISE Protein Sequencers are utilized daily to unambiguously identify proteins in a sample for NIAID researchers. At this time the PROCISE Protein Sequencers are the only instruments in the lab that determine the amino acid sequence of proteins/peptides. As these instruments are in daily use, repair and/or upgrades must be immediately available in order to prevent loss of research and to maintain continuity of experiments. Certified and factory trained engineers with expertise of the PROCISE Protein Sequencers instruments are to service these instruments and provide immediate technical support and repair services to prevent downtime in the event the instrument malfunctions. All parts shall be new or remanufactured to the original equipment specifications, accessories, and software must be compatible with existing equipment no substitutions allowed. To use different parts may cause the instruments to not be calibrated to optimal specifications such that the samples between experiments will not be analyzed and compared. Quality of experimental results may be compromised and time lost due to repeated experiments to confirm experimental results. The requested coverage of the service agreement consist of the following: parts, labor and travel for remedial repair; one (1) preventative maintenance per instrument, guaranteed priority response time of two (2) business days to schedule repair/service; software service in accordance with the manufacture’s latest established service procedures; advance notice of installation of all software updates, including regular updates and defective software revisions, and telephone and email access to application technical support during normal business hours (Monday through Friday, 9:00am – 5:00pm eastern time). See attached Statement of Work. NIAID will evaluate quotes to determine the best value to the government. NIAID will make a Best Value Determination based on the capability of each offeror’s quote to provide all requested products/services, and meet the required technical specifications at a reasonable price.

All responsible sources who can provide the required service agreement may submit a response that could be considered by email (subject line to reference NIAID-RFQ-20-2013662) to Tonia Alexander at talexander@niaid.nih.gov, by 11:00am eastern daylight time (EDT) Friday, July 17, 2020. All information furnished must be in writing and must contain sufficient detail to allow NIAID to determine if it can meet the above specifications described herein. By submission of an offer, the Offeror confirms the requirement that a prospective Awardee shall be registered in the System for Award Management (SAM) database prior to award, during performance, and through final payment of any contract, basic agreement, basic ordering agreement, or blanket purchasing agreement resulting from this solicitation. Note: Lack of registration in SAM will make an Offeror ineligible for award. Quotes must be received by the reference date of July 17, 2020 and time of 11:00am (EDT). Any quotation received by NIAID after this date and exact time specified is late and will not be considered.
