Description
The purpose of this amendment is to correct and clarify CLINs in the Base Year and Options. The following section is hereby replaced in its entirety on the OPM049-07-R-0004 Synopsis issued on October 27, 2006. INTRODUCTION AND OVERVIEW The Federal Investigative Service Division (FISD) is a department under the Office of Personnel Management Investigation Service. The Federal Investigative Service Division is responsible for conducting background investigations on employees of the Federal Government. A steady stream of documentary correspondence between Boyers, PA, Washington, DC and Ft. George Meade, MD is essential in maintaining the smooth running operations of all facilities. Timely and expeditious courier service between the three facilities is vital for FISD s overall mission. The Center for Retirement and Insurance Services (CRIS) which is part of the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) maintains an office in Boyers, PA and Washington, DC. CRIS is responsible for the initial processing of retirement, death claims, and final storage of all federal civil service retirement and insurance related records. A steady stream of documentation between Boyers, PA and Washington, DC facilities is essential in maintaining the smooth running operation of both facilities. A breakdown in this chain of correspondence could drastically incapacitate both the CRIS and FISD facilities. The contractor shall provide dependable, secure, accountable and timely courier service as identified by each Contract Line Item Number (CLIN) as listed. BASE PERIOD, PERIOD OF PERFORMANCE JANUARY 1, 2007 THROUGH SEPTEMBER 30, 2007: CLIN 0001 ROUND TRIP SERVICE between CRIS and the FISD, 1137 Branchton Road, Boyers, PA 16018 and OPM FISD, 1900 E Street, NW, Room 5416, Washington, D.C. 20415-4000 and OPM FISD, Personnel Investigations Center, 601 Tenth Street, Suite 200, Fort Meade, MD 20755.
