Legally defensible data meeting strict quality control standards are required. Analytical services may be needed for chemical and geotechnical analyses of environmental samples collected by the USGS for other regulatory-type projects requiring USEPA or similar published, standardized analytical methods and well-documented analytical and quality control results. The majority of samples to be analyzed for the USGS projects will be aqueous (water) samples collected mostly from surface sources with some ground water, sediment, and tissue samples.

All required instruments and/or equipment, shall be purchased, set-up, calibrated, and on-line prior to award of contract. The Contractor shall provide analytical services, supplies, and deliverables for chemical and geotechnical analyses of environmental samples collected for USGS projects. Analytical services may be requested by the USGS for other regulatory-type projects located throughout the United States. The Contractor shall use analytical methods specified in Attachment A, Items 1 through 187, for the analysis of environmental samples collected for USGS projects.
