The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), Division of Toxicology and Human Health Sciences (DTHHS), Environmental Toxicology Branch (ETB) intends to conduct a competitive procurement for an Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract in accordance with FAR 16.504 for the project entitled, "Mission Support for the Preparation of Toxicological Profiles." The project objectives are to obtain technical support for ATSDR in the preparation of profiles and associated documents on hazardous substances found at facilities on the EPA National Priorities List. Other substances not on the list may also be selected based on the public health needs as determined by ATSDR. Support provided under this procurement may include coordination of the production of the profile, as well as analysis, technical assistance, support concerning projects directly related to the development of the profiles and significant human exposure levels (SHELs) or Minimal Risk Levels (MRLs) and other scientific documents.

The profile must also focus on important data needs that preclude the determination of significant levels of human exposure or contribute substantially to the uncertainty of such levels. The quality of such data must be assessed and in order to support the determination of levels of significant human exposure and, where major gaps in the supporting data exist, identify those data needs in the toxicological profiles.

This requirement is anticipated to be a full and open competition under North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS) code of 541690 with a small business size standard of $14 million. The intended period of performance is from the date of award through five years thereafter. The maximum ordering limitation is $8,000,000.00.
