Great Lakes Fish Monitoring Program: Fish Homogenization Services






As part of its support to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA), Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) is seeking the services of a laboratory who can prepare homogenized fish tissue composite samples from fish collected from the Great Lakes.  This work will support the Great Lakes Fish Monitoring Program (GLFMP) administered by the U.S. EPA Great Lakes National Program Office (GLNPO).  The selected bidder must be able to effectively complete the objectives of the tasks described in the Statement of Work (SOW) including:  


1.        receive fish from field sampler teams and store (frozen) the fish appropriately,
2.        scan and retrieve (when applicable) coded wire tags from each fish (coded wire tag wand will be provided),
3.        maintain fish fin clips and otoliths when applicable,

4.        determine the sex and age of each fish,
5.        remove and maintain fish scales for each fish for archival purposes,

6.        composite and homogenize fish samples,
7.        prepare mega-composites,

8.        prepare non-routine samples,

9.        aliquot homogenized samples into various containers of appropriate size and material for each recipient,
10.        store frozen sample aliquots until the aliquots are scheduled to ship to the designated recipients,

11.        ensure the sample homogenization and process for creating aliquots does not introduce contamination for the target analytes listed in Table 1 of the SOW, and  

12.        prepare and provide data reports and deliverables.


CSC will task the bidder to perform specific activities under this SOW through task orders.  The bidder cannot proceed with activities specified in this SOW until receipt of task orders authorizing the specific activities to be performed.  


To ensure a solid understanding of the program requirements, the following materials are included:
