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: Multumode Microplate Reader- Tecan Spark
Sole Source Supplier: Tecan U.S.
Earliest Proposed Purchase Date: 12/19/2017
Buyer Name: Anthony Ferrara
Sole Source Justification: : The University believes that the Multimode Microplate readers from Tecan are the only source applicable to procure for the continuation of research that began in an out-of-state higher education institution, and whose protocols and procedures are based solely on this manufacturers equipment. Switching to another provider would require researchers to establish all of these protocols and procedures from scratch, which would severely interrupt their experiments and compromise the continuity of the subsequent data and results.
