Review by and input from potential sources is requested. Replies are requested to address, at a minimum, the following: a) What is the minimum monthly quantity that would be required to make this a viable no-cost contract? b) Is there a maximum that potential sources can process due to regulation or capacity limitations? c) Is there a specific quality limitation that is needed to utilize the grease for the intended purpose? d) Are there any industry-specific terms and conditions that the Government should consider. e) Are there any special permits or insurance requirements imposed by state or local regulations? Responding firms are requested to state their business size and the intended usage of the grease.
