Event Overview:

Solicitation #: RFP746072

“Battelle Pacific Northwest Division, as operator of Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), manages the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL) for the Department of Energy. This scope requires the development and provision of an automated soil analysis and processing (ASAP) system to support ongoing research at EMSL.

The completed automated system will replace the collection of spatially isolated, human-administered systems used to conduct the suite of analyses that comprise the organic matter capability. The ASAP system must add modularity, expandability, robotic liquid handling, robotic sample handling, sample tracking, remote monitoring and scheduling, and comprehensive metadata and data collection through integration of scheduling software with EMSL’s Network for the Execution of User Science (NEXUS) laboratory information management system (LIMS).

A virtual pre-proposal conference will be held on May 25, 2023 from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm PDT via Microsoft Teams. The purpose of this conference is to communicate particulars of the work scope and facility elements to aid offerors in the preparation of proposals. This event will provide the opportunity to receive answers to questions in real time.”

Due date: 26 May 2023 – intent to propose; 09 June 2023 – final proposals due, 4:00 p.m. PDT
