This acquisition is being conducted using the procedures under Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) Subpart 13.5, “Simplified Procedures for Certain Commercial Items” in accordance with 41 U.S.C. 1901.

Responses must clearly and thoroughly defend any claims or assertions that attempt to refute the science above. A determination by the Government not to compete this proposed contract action based upon responses to this notice is solely with the discretion of the Government.

If no affirmative responses are received within 3 days of this notice to determine whether a qualified source is more advantageous to the Government, a contract will be issued to Carl Zeiss Microscopy, LLC. There is no solicitation package available. The Contracting Officer for this requirement is Ms. Beth Kuhaneck. All questions or concerns relating to this notice shall be submitted by email to ejinwaemeonu.okeagu@nih.gov.
