79 -- UV-C Disinfection System SOL 36C25218Q0225 DUE 112217Michael J Rosenthalmichael.rosenthal@va.gov

THIS IS A SOURCES SOUGHT NOTICE ONLY. THIS IS NOT A REQUEST FOR QUOTE.The NCO 12, Great Lakes Acquisition Center, 115 S. 84th Street, Suite 101, Milwaukee, WI 53214, is performing market research. This Sources Sought Notice is for informational and planning purposes only and shall not be construed as a solicitation or as an obligation or commitment by the Government at this time. This notice is intended strictly for market research. The purpose of this Sources Sought notice is to determine interest and capability of potential vendors, including Small Business, Veteran-Owned Small Business (VOSB), and Service-Disabled Veteran-Own Small Business (SDVOSB) vendors relative to the North American IndustryClassification System (NAICS) Code 339112.

The Oscar G Johnson VA Medical Center located in Iron Mountain, MI has a need for brand name or equal Surfacide Helio Triple-Emitter UV-C Non-Touch Disinfection System. This system provides an evidence-based, automated UV-C hard surface disinfection system that data indicate eradicates multi-drug resistant organismsincluding C.diff, MRSA, VRE, CRE and Acinetobacter.

Specifications/salient characteristics:Minimum the salient features and characteristics:Power Supply Input: 9 UVC lamps: 150 Watts each100-240VAC;Input current: 115VAC: 0.7A, 230VAC1.5A. 65WOutput voltage: 12V DCF1, F2: 2.5A, 250VAC

A continuous 254nm wavelength UV-C Disinfection system.

The disinfection system shall be able to combine multiple emitters into one single system, operating together or as single emitters operating independently. This is beyond just having multiple emitters in one room. The disinfection system shall be able to maximize the effectiveness of each emitter to significantly reduce shadows in a single operation. The system shall deliver at least 1500mj for total delivered energy during a single cycle without the need for repositioning. No staff interaction shall be required to move or adjust emitters designedfor use with the multiple UV-C emitters for total room coverage in a single operation. The system shall be capable of eliminating shadows and maximizing proximity to all surfaces. The system shall allow for simultaneous use and controlled remotely.

The system of multiple UV-C emitters shall incorporate a UV-C concentrator for increased energy dosage and intensity. This process shall be controlled by the system and not have any staff interaction.

The system shall be able to pause a cycle during normal operation and continue the cycle without having to start over from the beginning.

The system shall utilize automated laser measurement and validation of room size to determine and ensure an effective dose of energy has been delivered to all surfaces in the least amount of time.

The system shall have the ability to validate energy output to ensure proper UV-C intensity during each disinfection cycle through reports in the disinfection system and be able to save those files in the cloud or in the control unit.

The UV-C system shall have a feature to apply "targeted and limited" range disinfection with safe continuous disinfection delivered unilaterally in a single direction from multiple emitters while safely ensuring that NO UV-C radiation is delivered outside of the chosen disinfection area.

The system shall incorporate a process for control of emitter s from outside the room when starting the system for employee safety. This control shall includestarting and stopping the system and reporting the status and operations information. The operator shall not have to enter the room for any reason while the system is operating. All functions shall be controllable from the control device.

The system shall accommodate unattended total room disinfection in a single, uninterrupted cycle without a need for repositioning or movement of the emitters.

The system shall incorporate multiple motion sensors within a single room with multiple entry/exit points for added safety. The system shall incorporate dual motion sensors with Passive Infrared motion detection and movement detection by an accelerometer/gravimeter in order to ensure staff safety and avoiding false starts or stops.

The system shall use Bluetooth technology to connect to the tablet to operate the emitters wirelessly.

The system Wi-Fi connectivity allowing "Cloud" connectivity for maintaining andmonitoring performance, archive capability and remote accessibility.

Shall include all applicable technical specifications, studies and white papersas evidence of meeting these requirements.INCLUDED IN PURCHASE: 3 UV-C emitters Sentry with tablet holder Sentry with motion sensor Training materials, operators tablet with required software Tent Cards / placards for proper cordoning 24/7 Tech Support Software upgrades Delivery, on-site two day training and Set-up
