Specific Information about this Opportunity:

Statement of Work - Annual Medical Gas Inspection

Annual Evaluation of the piped OXYGEN, NITROUS OXIDE, MEDICAL AIR, DENTAL AIR, MEDICAL VACUUM, DENTAL VACUUM, NITROGEN and EVACUATION/WAGD Systems, in accordance with JCAHO (Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations) 2016 standards, CGA (Compressed Gas Association) standards, NFPA 99 (National Fire Protection Association) 2015 standards, ASSE (American Society of Sanitary Engineering 6000, 2006), and USP/NF (United States Pharmacopeia Convention) requirements and recommendations. All equipment is located on the Dayton VAMC Campus located at 4100 West 3rd Street, Dayton OH 45428. All work shall be completed by September 30, 2016 and a written report shall be provided within 30 days after on site work. The report shall include all findings, note what was checked and the location, and reference applicable code sections. The report shall also provide a concise listing of discrepancies for inlet/outlets, alarm panels, source equipment, and zone valves (example provided below); this concise listing shall provide location (building and floor), room number, discrepancy, NFPA code that discrepancy applies to, recommended resolution for discrepancy, and any additional notes. Deficiencies noted shall be communicated to the COR within 24 hours of discovery and include a recommendation for remediation. The contractor should provide adequate staff to monitor up to 3 master alarm panels and sources when checking the source alarms (minimum of 4 contractors needed). The contractor may have to work outside the usual hours of 7am-4:30pm due to clinical need in some areas such as surgery, recovery room, GI clinic and emergency department. Work shall be coordinated with Biomedical Engineering. Inspection shall include checking of all source valves. The VA will provide a technician to accompany the contractor when checking source valves. Contractor shall check ALL outlets/inlets, skipping those in use and noting them on the report. All bidders must be certified to inspect medical gas systems and shall include a copy of the certification with their final report.

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."

-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 NameYourTestPrice.com 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."

Nathan Isser, Ph.D., Lawter - Director of Innovation
