Web Design, Development and Maintenance Services for Utah System of Higher Education Websites

Notice Number: 87395780
Date Posted: 4/27/2017
Comments Due: 5/4/2017

The Utah Procurement Code provides that a procurement may be made without competition when the University determines that there is only one source that can reasonably meet the University’s need for the required supply or service, as described in Utah Code Ann. § 63G-6a-802.

The Purchasing Department has received the following request for sole source procurement:

Product and/or Service to be Purchased: Web Design, Development and Maintenance of Websites for Utah System of Higher Education.
Sole Source Supplier: Objective
Earliest Proposed Purchase Date: 5/4/2017
Buyer Name: Bob Tiney
Sole Source Justification: Cost Benefit Analysis (required as part of transitional cost Justification)
Objective, Inc. has been managing several smaller web-based development projects since 2013. The Office of the Commissioner (OCHE), in order to better manage budget and timelines, is consolidating all current projects with Objective, Inc. to ensure uniformity of the user experience on its two primary websites: HigherEdUtah.org and StepUpUtah.com. To date, all of the projects have been managed separately. Objective, Inc. is sui generis positioned to support OCHE in consolidating the projects into its unified web strategy. Specifically, the firm knows both the technologies behind each separate project, as well as manages the design of the two primary OCHE websites. As a result Objective, Inc. is uniquely positioned to provide continuing cost-effective support to OCHE via sole source contract compared to soliciting bids from additional firms for such services. As a result we belive that the increased cost, (possibly as much as $12,000.00), and decreased efficiency, (due to lack of familiarity with the web-sites, as well as an increase in the number of hours to complete, thus taking longer to complete the project), makes it imperative that we continue to use Objective as our vendor for these services.

Ultra-High Speed Camera

Notice Number: 87055989
Date Posted: 4/21/2017
Comments Due: 4/28/2017
at 12:00 PM current Mountain Time.

The Utah Procurement Code provides that a procurement may be made without competition when the University determines that there is only one source that can reasonably meet the University’s need for the required supply or service, as described in Utah Code Ann. § 63G-6a-802.

The Purchasing Department has received the following request for sole source procurement:

Product and/or Service to be Purchased: Ultra-High Speed Camera
Sole Source Supplier: Shimadzu
Earliest Proposed Purchase Date: 4/28/2017
Buyer Name: Limher Montoya
Sole Source Justification: The Shimadzu HPVX2 camera provides capabilities that are not available elsewhere on the market. The
capabilities of the HPVX2 are summarized in the following:
Live video and image capture at frame rates from 60 fps to 10 Mfps.
A constant frame resolution of at least 400 x 250 pixels over the entire frame-rate capture
range.
Ability to capture at least 250 images at frame rates in excess of 500,000 fps
No Image ghosting. Image ghosting Is a phenomena when a previous image is burned into
the current image. Image ghosting leads to blurry features limiting the ability to distinguish
when events start and stop, and prevents the utilization of many image processing
algorithms
Sufficient light sensitivity of the image sensor such that the use of flash-lamps and laser
Illumination can be avoided. (ASA/ISO 16,000)
A trigger point that can be set to any frame
Variable exposure time that can be controlled in lOns intervals
Must be triggerable when used In a multi-camera configuration, should additional cameras be
purchase din the future
These capabilities will allow for the camera to be used in a broad range of experimental studies supporting the on-going and future research of faculty from multiple colleges and departments on campus. The Shlmadzu HPVX2 is able to meet these requirements through the use of a proprietary FTCMOS2 sensor which Is only available in the Shimadzu HPVX2 camera.

This is the only camera that has the light sensitivity to allow the camera to be used in the broad range of applications that faculty members are interested in using the camera.

Hypoxia Chamber

Notice Number: 86999258
Date Posted: 4/20/2017
Comments Due: 4/28/2017
at 12:00 PM current Mountain Time.

The Utah Procurement Code provides that a procurement may be made without competition when the University determines that there is only one source that can reasonably meet the University’s need for the required supply or service, as described in Utah Code Ann. § 63G-6a-802.

The Purchasing Department has received the following request for sole source procurement:

Product and/or Service to be Purchased: Hypoxia Chamber
Sole Source Supplier: Hypoxygen
Earliest Proposed Purchase Date: 4/28/2017
Buyer Name: Limher Montoya
Sole Source Justification: Only the Hypoxystation H35 from HypOxygen provides a humidification system that introduces sterile steam into workstation, user definable up to 90% RH (ambient temperature dependent). This reduces the chances of contamination, and reduces drying of samples placed into the chamber. The contamination or drying of samples would cause experiments to fail resulting in delays and loss of productivity.

Since the use of the chamber would be for the culture of cells (which require sterile conditions and can be easily contaminated by mold or bacteria from the surrounding environment), the Hypoxystation is the only unit that can fulfill our requirements.

Mouse Housing Cage Racks and Accessories

Notice Number: FMPR-0000001087
Date Posted: 3/10/17
Comments Due: 3/17/17
at 12:00 PM current Mountain Time.

The Utah Procurement Code provides that a procurement may be made without competition when the University determines that there is only one source that can reasonably meet the University’s need for the required supply or service, as described in Utah Code Ann. § 63G-6a-802.

The Purchasing Department has received the following request for sole source procurement:

Product and/or Service to be Purchased: Mouse housing cage racks and required accessories.
Sole Source Supplier: Techniplast
Earliest Proposed Purchase Date: 3/24/17
Buyer Name: Katherine Coons
Sole Source Justification: This product is to supply mouse housing cage racks and required accessories for the new HCI Vivarium occupancy starting July 2017. Techniplast designed the requested system to meet our capacity needs, for both auto-watering systems and water bottle needs (60:40), in the already defined space. The area is considered Biosafety level 2 or 2+ requiring specific caging and ventilation to protect both the animals and staff. The air handler units are separate from the rack system to remove vibration effects on the animals. The ventilation system layout allows for multi-day emergency change out procedure in case of power failure. A stress-free environment created by these cages is crucial for research. Techniplast is the only supplier which will provide cages that can produce such an environment.
