Comments Due: 6/26/18
at 3:30 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: In Vivo Comparative Medicine Bedding
Sole Source Supplier: Shepherd Specialty Supply
Earliest Proposed Purchase Date: 6/26/18
Buyer Name: Katherine Coons
Sole Source Justification: The University of Utah is looking to buy regular textured pellet bedding from Shepherd Specialty Papers. This specific product reduces the amount of ammonia in the cages. Per federal regulations, the amount of ammonia in the cages shall not exceed 25 ppm. Regular textured pellet bedding (i.e. paperchip bedding) works in a manner that keeps ammonia levels extremely low. There are no other suppliers that can provide a bedding that keeps the ammonia levels at a minimum. This order is expected to be over $50,000.00 and is for a period of five years.

Comments Due: 6/25/2018
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: Microsoft Premier Support
Sole Source Supplier: microsoft
Earliest Proposed Purchase Date: 6/25/2018
Buyer Name: Bob Tiney
Sole Source Justification: Our university uses Microsoft Exchange as our official secure enterprise email communications platform. A new contract was renewed last month for another three years.

Global untargeted metabolomics assay – 104029048

Date Posted: 6/13/2018
Comments Due: 6/20/2018
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: Global untargeted metabolomics assay
Sole Source Supplier: Metabalon, Inc.
Earliest Proposed Purchase Date: 6/20/2018
Buyer Name: Anthony Ferrara
Sole Source Justification: This project measures metabolites among endometrial cancer cases and matched controls nested within large cohort studies. We require a global untargeted platform with extensive reference standards library.

The assay has beed described: Evans AM BB, Liu Q, Mitchell MW, Robinson RJ, Dai H, Stewart SJ, DeHaven CD, Miller LAD. High
Resolution Mass Spectrometry Improves Data Quantity and Quality as Compared to Unit Mass Resolution
Mass Spectrometry in High-Throughput Profiling Metabolomics. Metabolomics. 2014;4(2):132.

Metabolon Inc’s library of standards covers >1000 chemically identified metabolites per biospecimen, many that are markers of exposures of interest in this study and that are not measured in most other academic or commercial laboratories. The other laboratory commonly used in epidemiological studies (the Broad Institute platform) identifies less than half the number of metabolites per sample. Our project is agnostic and therefore would benefit mostly from a platform that comprehensively captures the human metabolome.

My (Mary C Playdon)previous metabolomics research at the NCI used the Metabolon Inc. platform, thus all preliminary data and reliability pilot information is based on metabolite data from their platform. I will be using blood samples from the NCI and Harvard cohorts. I was required to obtain Biospecimen Committee approval from all cohorts prior to submitting the grant for this project, and they approved my use of the blood samples contingent on us using the Metabolon, Inc. platform.

My R00 project will measure metabolite associations with endometrial cancer, using data from 3 cohorts. However, project is now within the scope of a much larger effort, where the NCI will also be doing similar analyses within additional cohorts. We have an agreement to do a large, pooled meta-analysis of the data, thus we would need to use the same metabolomics platform in order to capture the same panel of metabolites. NCI plans to use Metabolon.

Flow Cytometer- 103317653

Date Posted: 6/13/2018
Comments Due: 6/20/2018
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: Cytoflex S System
Sole Source Supplier: Beckman Coulter
Earliest Proposed Purchase Date: 6/20/2018
Buyer Name: Anthony Ferrara
Sole Source Justification: We are in need of a new flow cytometer. Flow cytometers from different vendors come with an assortment of features and configurations. However there is only one instrument available that is capable of providing all the features we need, which are listed below.

We need a high parameter analyzer than can perform at a minimum 9 detector analysis with the use of 4 lasers (405nm Violet, 488nm Blue, 561nm Yellow-Green, 638nm Red ).

High sensitivity and fluorescence resolution are also indispensable criteria for our testing. The CytoFLEX S offers 24 bits and 7 decades of resolution and this will give us the ability to resolve dim populations.

We also need a flow cytometer that is capable of calculating absolute cell counts without the need for reference beads and that requires a syringe pump sample delivery system that the CytoFLEX S has.

Other features required and alre also only available on the Cytoflex are as follows :
• Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) detection module with solid-state, high efficiency, low-noise detectors for a flexible detection system that allows for easy setup of collection optics for a variety of applications which also minimizes light loss with efficient transmission of emitted light
• System with the capacity of various fluidic rates. Those rates should be pre-established as low, medium, and high. Additionally, the system should have the capability of user defined fluidic rates, where increments of 1ul/min can be attained.
• System preferred to be equipped with a peristaltic pump or equivalent to allow direct absolute count measurements without using beads.
• System must allow user to use software to adjust the visual position of the populations observed. That software movement must allow the system to reset hardware gains and compensations values automatically without recalibration and recompensation.

SalesForce CRM Software

Notice Number: 104401014
Date Posted: 6/13/2018

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: SalesForce Customer Relationship Management software.
Sole Source Supplier: SalesForce
Earliest Proposed Purchase Date: 6/20/2018
Buyer Name: Bob Tiney
Sole Source Justification: The School of Business at the University of Utah ahs been using SalesForce CRM for many years. we have estimated that if the University of Utah was forced to implement either Sugar CRM or Microsoft Dynamic CRM instead of SalesForce the following costs would be incurred for the software alone (not calculating the implementation costs, etc.). The estimated cost for Sugar CRM for a four (4) year term would be $2.8 Million and Microsoft Dynamic CRM would be $3.0 Million. The continued use of SalesForce CRM for a term of four (4) yeasrs would cost $681,120.00. The continued use of SalesForce clearly saves the University a very significant amount of money.
