DESC: The Pharmaceutical Resources Branch, Division of Cancer Treatment and Diagnosis (DCTD), National Cancer Institute (NCI) is seeking offerors for the purpose of procurement of bulk chemicals and drugs that are needed by the Drug Treatment Programs (DTP) for preclinical and clinical use. Assigned compounds are not readily available in the quality or quantities required from the original source, other suppliers or the open market. The compounds could be known or new chemicals with a wide variety of chemical structures. Multi step preparation sequences will generally be involved and process development for scale up preparation will be expected using provided investigatorÆs procedures. The quantity of a given material synthesized may range from multi grams to multi kilograms. All materials prepared will be fully characterized for high purity and the preparative cost will also be calculated. Most of assigned projects should be performed under the current good manufacturing practice (cGMP) complied with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) rule and regulations. The following MANDATORY QUALIFICATION CRITERIA must be met at the time of receipt of initial proposals by the Contracting Officer in order to be considered for award: (A) All offerors shall be registered with the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a manufacturer of bulk drugs; and (B) The facilities shall conform to the applicable regulations of the U.S Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), and those of state and local regulatory agencies.
All chemicals handled during the project should be considered to be potentially hazardous and/or toxic and, thus, should be handled accordingly. Offerors will be instructed to describe their safety program and their proposed approach for the handling of hazardous and toxic agents. Submission of safety manuals will be required. In addition, offerors must have facilities to handle cytotoxic agents because most projects involve preparation of potentially carcinogenic compounds (e.g., adequate air handling system).
Multiple awards of cost reimbursement, incrementally funded completion type contracts are anticipated. The contracts will be competed and awarded at two levels, Level I and Level II. Level I awardees are expected to complete 8 to 12 deliveries each year excluding reports and Level II awardees are expected to complete 15 to 25 deliveries each year excluding reports. Monthly progress reports describing work performed and annual project reports will be submitted, but additional reports may be required. Laboratory notebooks containing raw data should be maintained at the contract site for reviewing at the discretion of the Government. Prepared compounds are shipped to the NCI or the NCI repositories along with data sheets. Synthetic procedures and cost information should also be submitted for each compound when available.
It is anticipated that resulting awards will be made for a five year base period with two option years.
The solicitation is scheduled for release approximately December 2, 2005. Proposals will be due 45 days following the actual date of RFP issuance. This is a 100% small business set aside under the NAICS Code No. 54171 and a size standard of 500 employees. (See Number Note 1.) The RFP may be accessed through the Research Contracts Branch home page by using the following Internet address: http:/rcb.nci.nih.gov/rfp.htm.

Phone: 011 56 2 421 3588; Fax: 011 56 2 421 3020. Rural Connectivity Project in Chile. The Subsecretarφa de Telecomunicaciones (ôthe Granteeö) invites submission of qualifications and proposal data (collectively referred to as the "Proposal") from interested U.S. firms that are qualified on the basis of experience and capability to develop a feasibility study for the Rural Connectivity Project in Chile.
The Rural Connectivity Project is designed to address the digital divide in Chile. The Grantee plans to auction concessions for rural internet access services to private sector operators. The operators will be required to offer internet access services in rural areas at subscriber rates comparable to those available in urban areas. The winning bidders would be compensated for the relatively higher cost of providing rural internet access with a subsidy. Bidders will compete based on the basis of the least subsidy required. Funds for the subsidy will come from the Chilean governmentÆs Telecommunications Development Fund (Fondo de Desarrollo de Telecomunicaciones, FDT). With the support of the Netherlands consultants trust fund at the World Bank, the Grantee contracted with consultants to carry out a pre feasibility study, which developed preliminary estimates of demand, recommended the appropriate technologies, and developed a preliminary business model that estimated that the US$15 million subsidy would make internet connection available for approximately 1,000 rural localities.
The objective of the feasibility study is to assist the Grantee with the preparation of more precise data needed to conduct an efficient auction for concessions to provide rural internet access. The Grantee needs more accurate demand data, including the potential demand for Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) services in order to help bidders more accurately gauge the level of risk. The other key information needed for the bidding process is more precise capital expenditure and operating cost data in order to more accurately define the conditions of the bidding process, such as the maximum allowable subsidy.
A summary of the specific tasks is as follows:
Task 1: Demand study (including in field polling)
Task 2: Propose Network Solutions to Service the Identified Demand (Network Design,
Capital Expenditure and Operating Costs)
Task 3: Evaluate the potential of VOIP service as a source of additional revenues
Task 6: Organize a workshop including potential operators, subscribers, equipment suppliers, regulators, international organizations, and consultants
Task 7: Prepare a preliminary review and assessment of the environmental and developmental impacts of the Project
Task 8: Provide advisory support on the preparation of draft tender documents
Task 9: Present all findings and recommendations to the Grantee
Task 10: Prepare Final Report
The U.S. firm selected will be paid in U.S. dollars from a US$263,402 grant to the Grantee from the U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA).
A detailed Request for Proposals (RFP), which includes requirements for the Proposal, the Terms of Reference, and a background desk study report are available from USTDA, at 1000 Wilson Boulevard, Suite 1600, Arlington, VA 22209 3901. Requests for the RFP should be faxed to the IRC, USTDA at 703 875 4009. In the fax, please include your firmÆs name, contact person, address, and telephone number. Some firms have found that RFP materials sent by U.S. mail do not reach them in time for preparation of an adequate response. Firms that want USTDA to use an overnight delivery service should include the name of the delivery service and your firm's account number in the request for the RFP. Firms that want to send a courier to USTDA to retrieve the RFP should allow one hour after faxing the request to USTDA before scheduling a pick up. Please note that no telephone requests for the RFP will be honored. Please check your internal fax verification receipt. Because of the large number of RFP requests, USTDA cannot respond to requests for fax verification. Requests for RFPs received before 4:00 PM will be mailed the same day. Requests received after 4:00 PM will be mailed the following day. Please check with your courier and/or mail room before calling USTDA.
Only U.S. firms and individuals may bid on this USTDA financed activity. Interested firms, their subcontractors and employees of all participants must qualify under USTDA's nationality requirements as of the due date for submission of qualifications and proposals and, if selected to carry out the USTDA financed activity, must continue to meet such requirements throughout the duration of the USTDA financed activity.

The U.S. firm may use subcontractors from the host country for up to 20 percent of the USTDA grant amount. Details of USTDA's nationality requirements and mandatory contract clauses are also included in the RFP.
Interested U.S. firms should submit their Proposal in English and Spanish directly to the Grantee by 5:00PM, January 17, 2006 at the above address. Evaluation criteria for the Proposal are included in the RFP. Price will not be a factor in contractor selection, and therefore, cost proposals should NOT be submitted.
