Sample Management Office Contract

The Sample Management Office (SMO) contract provides professional, scientific, technical, and administrative support for specific and evolving programmatic needs, including production processes, to USEPA’s Analytical Services Branch (ASB). SMO serves as an administrative, logistical, chemistry, and IT interface with ASB, regional EPA personnel, commercial environmental testing laboratories, other EPA programs, and other government agencies. Each of the SMO Performance Work Statement (PWS) task areas are intricately and necessarily linked in functionality to the others.

The primary objective under the SMO contract is to provide data to users in an efficient, reliable, useable, and timely manner. The SMO contract provides access to resources for special knowledge or skills of experts not readily available within the Agency; advice regarding developments in industry; comprehensive sample scheduling and tracking; analytical data review, analytical data assessment; development and update of analytical protocols, modified methods; analyses and reporting formats (e.g., Staged Electronic Data Deliverable - SEDD); development and maintenance of automated tools (e.g., Data Assessment Tool (DAT), Forms II Lite, ANSETS, Web-based CCS, Web-based Invoicing System); administrative invoice checking (as specified in FAR 7.503(c)(17)(ii)); reporting, cost recovery support, information management; information systems operations and maintenance; and evaluation and development of databases for storing, retrieving, and archiving Agency data.
