Health Physicist must be close enough for recall in the event of radiological event occurs and must be able to respond within 1 to 4 business hours of notification. This is to include the monthly processing and delivery of an average of 150 badges for personnel radiation monitoring. This will include badges, wrist badges and ring badges. Monthly monitoring of radiation exposure and badge usage reports will be provided on monthly bases to Wilmington VAMC Department of Radiology and the Radiation Safety Officer. Thermoluminescence dosimeters (TLD) or Optically Stimulated Luminescence (OSL) badges are preferred. Vendor must have software that allows for efficient tracking of personnel radiation monitoring devices and provide a monthly report that clearly states the employee radiation exposure level.

The contractor shall furnish all labor, equipment, transportation and parts necessary to provide Radiation Protection Survey Services and Health Physics Survey Services at the Wilmington VA Medical Center, 1601 Kirkwood Highway, Wilmington, Delaware 19805 in accordance with the Schedule of Services and Prices. Wilmington VAMC requires the vendor to provide access to a database that allows for efficient tracking of these personnel radiation monitoring devices each month and provides a monthly report and web-based access would be preferable so real time access can be accomplished at the Wilmington VAMC in case mail delivery is slow. Badges should not use photographic film but use optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) technology which provides greater sensitivity and a wider dynamic range. The OSL technology permits multiple readouts to confirm reported radiation does. Other dosimeters can only be analyzed once and film cannot be redeveloped to correct for processing errors. Monitor badges must identify whether exposure is static or dynamic and offer a higher degree of stability than badges using photographic film. In addition, the Government may exercise their option to extend the term of the contract four (4) additional option year periods subject to the required need and the availability of funds.

The RSO's duties and responsibilities include ensuring radiological safety and compliance with federal, state regulations, conditions/ limitations of the facility's X-ray Registration & Radioactive Materials Licenses and TJC requirements.
