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

Product and/or Service to be purchased: Neuropsychology clinical study services
Sole Source Supplier: University of Illinois
Earliest Proposed Purchase Date: 9/25/2019
Buyer Name: Ryan Rhodes
Sole Source Justification: UIC started the study with Dr. Langenecker on projects that started while the doctor was still a faculty member at UIC. Dr. Langenecker has since moved to the University of Utah but the work needs to continue at UIC. The only remaining lab members who were trained on this specific neuropsychological and clinical data study are still at UIC. The lab members who were trained on this study, must be the ones to complete data analysis, interviews, and manuscript preparation. These lab members are the only persons with the extensive knowledge and first hand training that is required for this research. This research also must continue to happen at UIC because it directly relates with the research Dr. Langenecker does at the University of Utah for an NIH funded study. Additionally, the work must be completed at UIC because the source files are at UIC.

This sole source is valid for five (5) years.

ChiralIR-2X VCD – 123011437



Notice Number: 123011437
Date Posted: 9/16/2019
Comments Due: 9/23/2019
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:
The ChiralIR-2X VCD is a stand-alone, dedicated vibrational circular dichroism (VCD) spectrometer. 
Sole Source Supplier: BioTools

Earliest Proposed Purchase Date: 9/23/2019
Buyer Name: Anthony Ferrara
Sole Source Justification:

The ChiralIR-2X VCD is a stand-alone, dedicated vibrational circular dichroism (VCD) spectrometer.  The ChiralIR-2x has multiple unique features. The most important considerations for the users of the VCD are the dual source and the dual photoelastic modulators PEM). The ChiralIR-2X includes a built-in dual source that provides almost four times S/N over any single-source system. The dual PEMS are required for research using solid samples. For standard solid sample analysis, the dual PEM provides artifact reduction to produce stable baselines for high sensitivity measurements with optimized S/N. In addition the dual PEM is critical for research on nanostructured substrates that have circular dichroism responses that are highly dependent on angle, including in-plane rotation angles. With this angle-dependence, VCD measurements must be made using both the dual PEM to produce a baseline as well as rotation in conjunction with dual PEM to observe the chiral response of the nanostructures. The ChiralIR-2X is the only VCD spectrometer that provides built-in dual sources and the dual PEM option and therefore is the only source for this type of instrument.

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: Bulk Liquid Nitrogen for Cryorepository
Sole Source Supplier: DJB Gas Services Inc..
Earliest Proposed Purchase Date: 9/23/2019
Buyer Name: Ben Goodrich
Sole Source Justification: The CTRM has a cryorepository system that includes a bulk Liquid Nitrogen (LN2) Tank that is piped to 12 large LN2 freezers for the long term storage of patient transplant products.  The LN2 bulk tank is filled from a system connected to the outside of the building.  This bulk tank is owned and maintained by DJB Gas Services, Inc. (DJB).  The contract stipulates that the department will not purchase LN2 or CO2 from another vendor for the term of the contract.  This vendor also provides portable CO2 and LN2 tanks for deliver to the 3rd floor suite to feed incubators and controlled rate freezers for cell preparation.  The cost to deconstruct the current system and install a new system would be a capital purchase plus variable costs for the delivery of the portable and bulk liquid.  Currently the cost per year includes rental of the bulk tank (not a capital purchase), maintenance and the cost for weekly delivery.  This allows for upgrades to the system without having the department to purchase new equipment.
