ANIMAL HEALTH MONITORING SERVICES

(contract last updated 07/20/2018)

SCOPE: Contract for the purchase of  Animal Health and Cell line Monitoring Services.

 

This contract will be used to assure animal health and cell line integrity and to monitor disease outbreaks and morbidity on this campus and its affiliated units.  It is intended that all of Lot 1 will be awarded to one “Primary” Contractor with a possible “Secondary” Contractor also awarded.  Lots 2 and 3 will be awarded based on responses received and the ability of the Contractors to provide the services being requested.  The UW Madison Research Animal Resource Center (RARC) will use the contract for services for all UW-Madison animal care and affiliated units.

 

The UW requires the services of an animal serology and molecular diagnostics laboratory that will provide a cost effective and technologically superior means of ensuring animal health monitoring on the UW Madison campus (and affiliated units) as well as provide cell line diagnostics and educational and consultative services to the veterinary staff and investigators.  We require such a program to be both cohesive and adaptable to the needs of the individual colleges providing comprehensive testing for serology/PCR, parasitology and specific research pursuits.  Email notifications should be sent out for all tests submitted with positive results noted or highlighted for faster response. Reliably validated state of the art testing technologies should be used (to highest industry standards) and panels/profiles be able to be customized for the campus’s needs.

 

There must be an easy to use, flexible yet secure and well-supported web based database accessible from all parts of the campus (with password) that can accept submissions from multiple locations (yet still consider the whole of the campus submissions over time as regards pricing).   This system should be configurable so that the University in conjunction with the Contractor can designate which logins at the University can view specific categories of reports, import and export data.  Diagnostic health reports and health summary reports should easily fit on an 8.5x11 page and be easily understood and be able to be printed as a PDF. These reports should also be viewable in an online secure database format.   Other needs include: ease of creating reports from serology and other testing data for use and export to templates such as transfer forms, the ability to track individual animals through room, building and investigator changes, the ability to search a wide range of parameters and the ability to upload in-house testing data (pathology, bacteriology and parasitology, etc.) and submitted by the UW and its affiliated units. Within a relatively short period of time (~3 months) all previous historical data from this campus’s databases and other companies should be incorporated into the chosen database.  Data base assistance during work hours (7:00 AM – 5:00 PM, M-F, CST/CDT) should be available by phone and email and the database should be able to be further customized as needs require.

Educational materials and opportunities should be made available to the RARC staff and UW-Madison investigators with consultative services available by phone and email during working hours (7 am-5pm M-F CST) and emergency assistance available by phone if available.  The Contractor should be actively engaged in research into new techniques for testing and threats to laboratory animal and cell line health and integrity and willing to collaborate with the contractor on emerging diseases and problems within the contractor’s animals and tissues.

 

The University has significant time invested in staff persons currently involved in the use of the current serology providers (500 hrs. +  each).  Proposers should identify how their services will be easily transferable between current users of competitors reports and methods.

MANDATORY SPECIFICATIONS

3. Long term commitment to pricing (at least 1 year) and at least 3 mo. notification of plan to increase prices.
4. Provision and maintenance of quality testing services and quality control with defined retesting (free) for equivocal results at a lab of our choice.
5. Free consultation with laboratory personnel.
6. No additional diagnostic tests added to any custom testing or standard panels without advance notice and permission of UW Director of RARC Pathology and Lab Services or UW-Madison Chief Veterinarian.
