Conservation services needed

From: Carol Clausen <clausenc>
Date: Monday, July 12, 1999
It is the intent of the National Library of Medicine (NLM) to
procure conservation treatment for the History of Medicine Division
(HMD), NLM materials in order to return them to a condition in which
they can be used without further damage and assure their
preservation under their normal circumstances of use and storage.
Services to be performed, at the contractor's facility, are:
preparing examination reports and proposals for treatment; paper
repair; aqueous and nonaqueous deacidification; rebinding in
leather, cloth, paper, vellum and tawed skin; sewing through folds
on cords or tapes; repair of boards, covering material and spine;
lettering and stamping on spines and labels; encapsulating leaves in
Mylar film by means of an ultrasound welder; producing appropriate
housings, such as phase boxes, double-tray clamshell boxes and
portfolios; and preparing treatment labels.  Demonstrated evidence
of similar conservation treatment, adequate security, safety and
environmental quality and experienced staff are required.

The period of performance (base year) will begin on or about
September 30, 1999 with an option for one successive one-year
period.  This procurement is being conducted under the Simplified
Acquisition Threshold.  A Request for Quotation (RFQ) will be issued
on or about July 21, 1999.  All responsible and responsive sources
may submit a proposal which will be considered by the NLM.  Request
for the RFQ must be in writing stating the solicitation number,
complete name, address and phone number of requestor.
