Solicitation #: 140G0220Q0014
"The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) conducts various types of scientific projects with the Department of Defense and other governmental agencies throughout the United States and other countries under the USGS Department of Defense Environmental Conservation (DODEC) program. These DODEC projects investigate various types of contamination-related problems and conduct environmental studies at Federal facilities. Typically these projects require analytical services for chemical analyses of environmental (water, solid, air, and biological) samples for organic and inorganic constituents, and geotechnical analyses of solid (sediment, sludge, and soil) samples using U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) analytical methods and other published analytical methods such as Standard Methods and ASTM methods. Legally defensible data meeting strict quality control standards are required. Analytical services may be needed for chemical and geotechnical analyses of environmental samples collected by the USGS for other regulatory-type projects requiring USEPA or similar published, standardized analytical methods and well-documented analytical and quality control results. The majority of samples to be analyzed for the USGS projects will be aqueous (water) samples collected mostly from surface sources with some ground water, sediment, and tissue samples."
"The Contractor shall provide analytical services, supplies, and deliverables for chemical and geotechnical analyses of environmental samples collected for USGS projects. The analytical results from these samples will be used by the USGS in support of scientific and regulatory investigations and monitoring of project sites located throughout the United States with particular emphasis on Department of Defense and other Federal facilities. Analytical services may be requested by the USGS for other regulatory-type projects located throughout the United States. The majority of samples to be analyzed for the USGS projects will be aqueous (water) samples collected from groundwater monitoring wells and surface water sources."
