The Office of Financial Resources, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, Department of Health and Human Services contemplates awarding a one year cost reimbursement contract with four option years entitled "Technical, Administrative, and Logistical Support Services for Contract Technical Merit Review Meetings and Contract Closeout Support Services". This project is Set Aside for 8(a) Small Business under NAICS Code 541690.

SAMHSA's Office of Financial Resources (OFR), Division of Contracts Management (DCM), is required by Congress to conduct technical review of contracts through an extramural peer review process. This requirement insures that all technical reviews are conducted impartially by a panel of highly qualified persons. The primary peer review functions include, but are not limited to, the following activities: (1) selecting qualified expert Reviewers for the technical merit review panel, (2) screening Reviewers for conflict of interests, (3) selecting hotel accommodations for Reviewers to perform technical merit review, (4) administering through a contractor to provide payments for accommodations, honoraria and other related expenses to Reviewers, and (5) writing evaluation reports of all reviewed proposals. The contract review team administers and conducts technical merit/peer review meetings for proposals submitted in response to SAMHSA-wide Request for Proposal (RFP) announcements.

To perform these specific functions, SAMHSA requires a contractor to provide logistical support services for support of contract technical merit reviews, which is administered by DCM.

In addition, DCM is required to review those projects that are announced through SAMHSA's Indefinite Delivery-Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract mechanism. These projects are reviewed through an objective review process. Logistical support is required for those reviews in the form of writing services, including note-taking during the objective review meetings and writing the Technical Review Summary Reports.

Finally, the primary function for Administrative Support to DCM is to provide not only the Contract Technical Assistant for the peer reviews, but also to provide full-time, on-site staff to fill and perform Contract Closeout Administrative Support services.

The estimated date for issuance of this RFP is Febraury 21, 2019 with proposal responses due March 22, 2019. The anticipated period of performance is a base period of 12 months, plus four (4) 12-month option periods.
