Contract Control Number: 202157522

 

Vendor/Contractor Name (including any “DBA”): Pontem, LLC

 

Type and Scope of services to be performed:

Contractor will provide staffing and project management of COVID-19 community testing sites. 

For each Community Testing Site, Contractor will provide one Site Supervisor and/or one Site Lead plus adequate Testing Staff to oversee and operate testing. All Site Supervisors and Site Leads must be appropriately trained as “Key Personnel” qualified to oversee the testing staff, equipment, supplies, and customer service required for the Testing Site. Contractor’s Key Personnel will interact with the relevant City Agency’s Authorized Representative at all times during testing and testing coordination efforts.

During each testing day, Contractor will set-up for testing operations, collect COVID-19 specimens per City standards, and pack-up at the end of each day. Contractor staff will adhere to safety protocols, HIPPA regulations, and hazardous waste disposal requirements. Contractor will track inventory of City provided PPE including disposable Tyvek coveralls, disposable gloves, face shields, N95 masks, KN95 masks, surgical masks, gowns, reflective vests, reflective suspenders, and reflective arm bands. Contractor is ultimately responsible for assuring that its employees don the appropriate level of PPE for the work. However, should safety issues be conveyed, and a contractor does not rectify, the City has a right to cancel future work.

Contractor will coordinate safe removal of hazardous materials with City provided waste contractor. Waste such as PPE used in the testing process, must be collected, contained and handled in coordination with the City Agency’s Authorized Representative.

 

Contractor will coordinate site logistics with appropriate City agencies, including Dept of Public Health and Environment (DPHE).
