Auction Description

This is a Synopsis/Solicitation for the procurement of 'Analytical Services in Support of Hazardous Materials Transportation' for the US Department of Transportation, Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration's Office of Hazardous Materials Safety (US DOT -PHMSA, OHMS).

US DOT - PHMSA, OHMS, is seeking a contractor(s) with Research and Development (R&D) experience related to risk assessment, evaluation of emerging technologies, risk mitigation, emergency response, human factors, risk management and communication.

PHMSA's primary mission under the Hazardous Materials Transportation Uniform Safety Act of 1990, P.L. 101-615, 49 U.S.C. 5101 et seq. (as revised by P.L. 103-272 and P.L. 103-311), is to protect people and the environment from the risks inherent in the transportation of hazardous materials (HMs). To accomplish this mission, HM safety regulations must be developed and enforced. It is often necessary to obtain scientific services that are not available within the agency, including engineering research, human factors, risk management and communication and HM risk analysis/assessment research. OHMS has a continuing need to research, assess, analyze, and in some cases develop products to determine the risks associated with the adequacy and safety of HM transportation. OHMS has a need to perform basic and applied research to enhance and improve compliance with the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMRs) and to gain information on emerging transport risks.

"When we had a need to add additional capacity to our product certification team the service we chose was Name Your Test Price. They assisted in the scoping of the work, they located a lab that could provide the quickest turnaround time and liaised with the lab to help define our expectations. Name Your Test Price response to questions was extremely quick and their insight on laboratory procedures was excellent. I plan to use Name Your Test Price again in the future."

-Kevin Flanders, UTC Fire & Security Americas Corporation, Inc.

"I was searching for labs in the States who tested consumer products. I was unsure of where to go and how to get started. So many labs! The field was vast and overwhelming. I spoke to and they understood what I needed and made excellent suggestions and provided me with helpful contacts. Thanks Name Your Test Price!"

-Maggie Gilmour, Researcher, Discovery Channel - Toronto Ontario

"When we had a need to conduct some external testing, we started by contacting local testing labs and got quotes of $500 per sample. Then we found testing partners and they were able to get the job done for $200 per sample, saving us thousands! We have been working with them for our external testing and certification needs ever since."
