VA solicits proposals for decontamination trailer

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs issued a solicitation on Wednesday to build a patient decontamination trailer for the VA Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System.

The trailer will allow the VA to protect patients, staff and facilities from terrorist attacks from CBRN agents.

The solicitation specifically requests proposals for a decontamination trailer with a 750-gallon waste tank. The pressure tank and pump must be sized to run all showerheads and external hose bibs, and the trailer must include power cords.

An options package including application of logos supplied by the VA for the exterior of the trailer, a generator mount with a diamond plate encasement on the trailer, a propane tank mounted on the trailer's tongue and other products is also in the solicitation.

The VA solicitation also includes other requirements including heavy-duty foldup stairs and rails and an isolated utility room.

The solicitation requires that the project be completed within eight weeks.

The contract award will be made to the proposal that can provide all of the specifications within the solicitation at the lowest price. The VA award will be firm and at a fixed price.

Responses to the solicitation can be submitted via email. The deadline for the solicitation is July 16.
