Leidos has standardized the biological safety cabinet requirements for the
Facility, and a list of approved models for several manufacturers has been established.
Any program utilizing the Leidos procurement system must complete Form CG13,
and send with the PR to the Purchasing Department.
The Purchasing Department has established contracts for these procurements. As long
as an approved model is requisitioned, the requisition will be processed without
further justifications or competition. Other models may be requisitioned, but will
require a justification and additional approvals by EHS and/or FME prior to approval
All purchases for chemical fume hoods and laminar flow cabinets must be approved
by EHS prior to order being placed.
In accordance with Leidos policy, ductless fume hoods are explicitly prohibited.
