2. The Contractor/laboratory may not sub contract any analysis out.

3. In order to receive an award the laboratory shall be approved by Mid-Pacific Region¿s Quality Assurance and Data Management Branch, MP-156. Approval will include but not be limited to passing a Quality Assurance Audit as stated below, receiving an acceptable review of the laboratory¿s QA Manual, round-robin performance evaluation samples, and reporting limits.

Audit Process:

The MP-156 quality assurance (QA) section conducts audits on laboratories involved in analytical activities that support Mid-Pacific Region projects. The audit consists of reviewing the laboratory¿s QA manual and the last three years of approved round-robin performance study results, submitting performance evaluation samples, and conducting an onsite audit. The review process allows the QA section to determine if laboratories are capable of performing quality analyses on Mid-Pacific Region samples while following QA/QC practices that meet or exceed Mid-Pacific Region standards and protocols.

Background Review:

Prior to the audit, the QA section will contact the laboratory QA officer or the laboratory director and request a copy of both the current QA manual and the last three years of approved round-robin performance study results. The performance study results and QA manual are reviewed by the QA section.

Performance Evaluation Samples:

Prior to the onsite audit, the QA section conducts a performance audit by submitting performance evaluation samples. The purpose of the performance evaluation samples is to evaluate the laboratory¿s ability to generate accurate data. If the laboratory performs poorly on the performance evaluation samples, the QA section may consider not conducting the onsite audit. The parameters submitted for the performance evaluation samples will be tailored to reflect those of current Mid-Pacific Region projects and the methods the laboratory performs.

If the laboratory does not obtain a result within the acceptance criteria, the laboratory will be directed to reanalyze the sample(s). If the reanalyzed result is within the acceptance criteria, then the performance audit is considered acceptable. If the laboratory still does not meet the acceptance criteria upon reanalysis, a new performance evaluation sample from a different lot or vendor will be submitted. If the laboratory can obtain an acceptable result on the new performance evaluation sample, the performance audit is considered acceptable. If the laboratory does not meet the acceptance on the original, reanalysis, or new performance evaluation sample, the laboratory will not be audited or approved for this method/parameter.

Audit Agenda:

Approximately one week prior to the audit, the auditor will send the laboratory contact a proposed audit agenda. The audit agenda details the time allotted for the initial meeting with management, analytical method review, document review, and debrief. After laboratory review and approval, the audit agenda will be finalized.

Onsite Audit:

An onsite laboratory audit is conducted by the QA section to assess the laboratory¿s expertise in conducting the analyses, the capability for producing valid data, the ability to effectively support the data, and the integrity of the QA/QC practices.

Meet with Management:

The first step of the audit will be to meet with management and key laboratory personnel to discuss the purpose of the audit and give a general overview about the Mid-Pacific Region and the Quality Assurance and Data Management Branch (MP-156). During this meeting, the audit team will discuss MP-156¿s policies and requirements, the performance evaluation sample results (if available), document request, and questions for the QA Officer (QAO).

Analytical Method and Document Review:

During the onsite audit, the QA officer, analysts, and other key laboratory personnel are questioned to determine their overall understanding of the methods and laboratory procedures. Documentation practices are also reviewed. In general, the auditors are checking to see if the laboratory procedures follow the laboratory¿s QA manual guidelines and the EPA method, Standard method, or other method protocols.
Debrief:

The most serious deviations are presented to the laboratory as findings in a debrief meeting at the end of the audit; the debrief is generally conducted the day after the audit. All the deviations are written as findings or observations in the final audit report.

Audit Report:

Any deviations from accepted protocols are written in an audit report as findings. The report can also include good practices for any procedures that the auditors would like the laboratory to continue and observations for any procedures that the auditors would like the laboratory to adopt.

Laboratory Audit Response and Final Approval Letter:

The laboratory is asked to send a response to each finding detailed in the QA section¿s audit report. The auditors will review this response and assess if the corrective actions and explanations are acceptable. If any response is questionable, the laboratory is contacted for clarification.

Once the review of the laboratory¿s audit response is complete, the lead auditor will send a final letter addressing whether or not the laboratory is approved for use.

System for Award Management (SAM), as required by FAR 4.1102, applies to this procurement. Prospective contractors must be registered prior to award. Lack of registration in the SAM database will make an offeror ineligible for award. Information on SAM registration can be obtained via the Internet at https://www.sam.gov.

Testimonials

"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."

"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 NameYourTestPrice.com and they understood what I needed and made excellent suggestions and provided me with helpful contacts. Thanks Name Your Test Price!"

"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."
