                        USDOT SYNOPSZED STATEMENT OF WORK



USDOT URINE COLLECTION AND ALCOHOL TESTING SERVICES


 Summary


The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) has a requirement for a contractor to provide urine collection for drug testing and alcohol testing services and supporting functions to DOT and other entities (e.g. other federal government agencies).  Services will be provided, where appropriate, in accordance with Executive Order 12564, the Omnibus Transportation Employee Testing Act of 1991, the Aviation and Transportation Security Act, DOT Drug and Alcohol Workplace Order, DOT Drug and Alcohol Testing Guide and this statement of work.  The contractor shall provide any other related services to support the DOT Drug and Alcohol-Free Workplace Program.


This requirement covers urine collection for drug testing and alcohol testing services for all operating administrations within the DOT, the Office of the Secretary (OST) and the Office of the Inspector General (OIG).  In addition, urine collection and alcohol testing services for other federal government agencies may be required under this contract.  This may require changes to collector instructions, forms and entail additional administrative work.  This may include urine collection and alcohol testing requirements of DOT 49 CFR Part 40.


Other agencies may obtain services under this contract by becoming a rider under an anticipated contract award.  The following guidelines apply:


•1.    Each participating agency shall directly communicate service requirements with the contractor.


•2.    The contractor shall deal directly with individual participating agencies on service requirements.


•3.    The contractor shall invoice the participating agency directly, not through DOT, for services provided.


•4.    Disagreements relating to specific service delivery requirements shall be resolved between participating agency and contractor.


•5.    The participating agency shall pay the contractor directly, not through DOT, for services.


 The anticipated contract award will be a Firm-Fixed Price, Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity contract with a base period and four (4) option periods. 


Collection/testing is required in all 50 States, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, and certain locations in the Western Pacific area; e.g. Guam, American Samoa, etc.


 The estimated number of DOT employee collections/tests to be performed is approximately 11,500 collections for drug testing and 2,300 alcohol tests a year. The estimated number of Department of Homeland Security (DHS) employee collections/tests to be performed, if DHS participates in a contract award, is approximately 20,000 collections for drug testing and 20,000 alcohol test a year.  Approximately 200 of these tests are emergency after hours testing.  The rate of random testing, is currently 25% of the employees eligible each year, is subject to change.  The actual number of tests to be performed each year will vary depending upon such factors as random testing rate, volume of testing other than random, and testing required supporting other entities outside of DOT that may participate in this contract.  The rate for alcohol testing is currently 10% with an estimated minimum of 2300 random tests per year.  Should the rate of positive tests exceed 1% for any 1-year period, the testing rate may be increased.  The number of tests required under the other types of testing varies.  Reasonable suspicion and post‑accident tests are expected to be approximately 1% of tests.  Follow‑up tests are expected to be approximately 12% and pre‑employment and pre‑appointment are currently about 20% of current drug tests.  Pre-employment alcohol testing is not currently performed within DOT. 


The contractor shall participate with DOT in this effort by assisting, in a flexible and responsive manner, in establishing and modifying procedures required and assuring a high quality of performance.  It is the responsibility of the contractor to be familiar with the DOT Federal Employee Workplace Testing Program policies and procedures, DOT Drug and Alcohol Workplace Order, DOT Drug and Alcohol Testing Guide.  The contractor, and any subcontractor associated with this contract, will be subject to contract Quality Assurance inspections that are announced and unannounced, by DOT. The impact of other entities participating in this contract cannot be estimated at this time. 


If DHS participates in this contract, the time period for that participation may be 1 to 5 years. As the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has a separate contract for the majority of pre-employment testing, it is anticipated that TSA Headquarter and other DHS pre-employment testing will be under 1,000 tests per year.
