Solicitation #: 23-02-1299

The Brazos River Authority (BRA) of Texas “is currently requesting proposals from laboratories for biomonitoring and toxicity analytical services to provide professional, accurate, and defensible laboratory analysis services for the analysis of treated effluent samples from nine (9) municipal wastewater treatment facilities for compliance with Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (TPDES) Permits.

As TPDES permits at BRA operated wastewater treatment facilities require toxicity testing laboratory services, investigative services when problems arrive, and toxicity reduction evaluations (TRE), if required, are needed by the BRA during the term of the agreement, the following is an overview of possible services that may be required:

1. Routine analysis of effluents for chronic toxicity
2. Routine analysis of effluents for acute toxicity
3. Special investigative services related to the results of routine analysis, as needed
4. TRE Analyses, as needed

The selected laboratory (“LABORATORY”) must be able to perform all services listed above. Subcontracting is not permitted under this contract.”

Due date: 10 April 2023, 10:00 a.m. CDT
