The subject requirement will provide scientific technical support for EPA's Office of Prevention, Pesticides, and Toxic Substances (OPPTS), Economics, Exposure, & Technology Division (EETD). The purpose of this requirement is to provide for the performance of exposure assessments, utilizing existing procedures, and for the development of relevant information necessary for EPA to develop new exposure assessment procedures in order to fulfill the requirements of the Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA), the Pollution Prevention Act, and any Executive Order or other legislative requirements made of the Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics (OPPT). This requirement also provides support for the performance of exposure assessments and support for the development of new exposure assessment procedures to other Agency offices under other statutes. These services are currently provided by the incumbent, Versar Inc., under EPA contract #EP-W-04-035. Notwithstanding the Government's option to exercise term extensions, the current contract is scheduled to expire on 30 June 2009. Additional information for this requirement, including a draft Statement of Work (SOW), is available on EPA's Acquisition Forecast Database at: http://yosemite1.epa.gov/oarm/oam/forecastdatabase.nsf (ref.
