The Contractor shall furnish all necessary facilities/personnel, and shall perform all tasks necessary for the "Chemical Analysis Services" requested by FDA, at the Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN), in the Washington DC Metro Area. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN), and its various offices nationwide, including the Office of Regulatory Science (ORS), the Office of Food Safety (OFS), the Office of Food Additive Safety (OFAS) and the Office of Compliance (OC), has a need to obtain information about the concentrations of chemicals in a wide variety of foods, dietary supplements and cosmetics, through the collection of food, dietary supplements and cosmetic samples, and their subsequent analysis by chemical analytical methods to be specified in each task order. The objective of this contract is to develop a capability to support CFSAN's research by rapidly assessing the quantities of specified chemicals in foods, dietary supplements, and cosmetics through surveys of these commodities. The purpose of these surveys is to develop a better understanding of the quantities of chemicals and their distribution. The types of samples to be collected for these studies include food products from across the United States, including fresh fruits and produce, packaged and processed foods of all types, dietary supplements and cosmetics. The analytical targets of these studies include chemical contaminants in foods (e.g. pesticides, industrial chemicals), direct food additives and indirect food additives (those produced by processing or transfer from packaging), deliberate adulterants, nutrients, naturally occurring chemical components (such as metals), as well as the chemical constituents of dietary supplements, botanical extracts and cosmetics. The analytical methodology for any specified study will be established and provided by CFSAN, and shall include methods based upon state-of-the-art analytical techniques, including many based on instrumental analysis with various types of separation techniques and spectrometers.
