Contract conservation work
National Archives, Washington DC

The Conservation Lab of the National Archives and Records
Administration (NARA) intends to issue a contract for conservation
services for archival materials.  The object of the solicitation is
to acquire conservation services to stabilize paper-based records
prior to digitization.  A range of stabilization treatments will be
performed on original service records of Volunteer Union Soldiers
Who Served from Massachusetts, 1861-1865, to ensure safe handling
during digitization and full image capture of content.

The following treatments will be performed as needed:  separation of
documents where unique information is obscured, mending, local
humidification, surface cleaning, and removal of prior mends.

All conservation work is to be performed at the National Archives
Building, 7th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington DC, one day
per week during normal business hours.  Work will be carried out in
a fully equipped conservation lab.  All supplies required for
treating and housing records will be provided.

Individuals who would like more information or to receive the
Statement of Work/Request for Proposal should contact
