Testing of Athletics, COVID-19 Tests

Notice Number: 133162936
Date Posted: 7/2/2020
Comments Due: 7/9/2020
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: Testing of Athletics, COVID-19 Tests, maximum 2-day results
Sole Source Supplier: Sports Medicine Research & Testing Lab
Earliest Proposed Purchase Date: 7/9/2020
Buyer Name: Aimee Elliott
Sole Source Justification:

This purchase is only available from SMRTL as they are the only local vendor who is certified to process the type of COVID-19
test that the Athletics Department is currently using for its student-athletes. No other vendor on the market is certified to
complete this test in the time that is needed by the department as no other vendor has a two day turnaround. The
department needs this quick turnaround as every athlete and coach that will be traveling will be tested the week of
competition and the tests must come back in time to be reviewed before travel takes place. No other vendor on the market is approved to review the test that is being administered and no other vendor can turn this
test around in the 2 day time frame needed by the department.

Only one vendor is allowed under our approved ANDAs and other FDA approved drugs.

Kuali Build

Notice Number: 132539176
Date Posted: 6/29/2020
Comments Due: 7/6/2020
at 4:00 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: Kuali Build
Sole Source Supplier: Kuali, Inc.
Earliest Proposed Purchase Date: 7/3/2020
Buyer Name: Colette Brown
Sole Source Justification:

Kuali Build is an add on product for the other Kuali products currently under contract at the University of Utah. This is a form builder tool that has direct links into our Kuali Curriculum Management (CM) and Catalog products. It takes the forms that we’ve configured forms and pushes them through a specific university workflow providing the ability to extract the data as needed. We are purchasing an office (Curriculum Administration) license that will be used for curriculum-related data collection needs.
These will include out-of-state learning placements, new degree and online degree proposals, and online funding distribution process. Users will get a unified experience when submitting curriculum-related proposals throughout campus on a system they are already familiar.
The current Kuali CM and Catalog software are specific curriculum use cases and are limited by 4 forms (courses, programs, emphases, and general education application). The built relationships between CM and Catalog allow for automatic data connections for anything already being collected via the other 4 forms directly into the Kuali Build platform. Then we won’t be limited by the 4 forms and will be able to create form for the various other curriculum-related services at the university. This will eliminate the need for consuming large amounts of IT resource in making data connections, through APIs and other methods, which we do not currently have the resources to fund on each small but important process needed for a secure data collection. Effective from 7/1/2019 through 6/30/2022.

LabStats Software

Notice Number: 132911410
Date Posted: 6/26/2020
Comments Due: 7/3/2020
at 4:00 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: LabStats Software
Sole Source Supplier: Computer Lab Solutions
Earliest Proposed Purchase Date: 7/3/2020
Buyer Name: Colette Brown
Sole Source Justification:

LabStats is the primary campus computer labs statistics gathering software. LabStats was selected for the campus general use computing labs as it best
meets the needs of the task force, would be easier to support and deploy throughout campus than other options, and the Marriott Library had experience with the deployment and agreed to provide support to various campus departments for this initiative. At this time there are several other departments along with the Library that are using this service, with
more expected to join this coming year.

The University has not found a software package that does what this software does, but assuming that another similar package could be found and implemented, it is estimated that the cost of the new license and the costs of implementing and training campus users to use the new software would almost double the current cost of this software. This is for four years of service.

Micromanipulator for Electron Microscopy – 133160943

Notice Number: 133160943
Date Posted: 6/26/2020
Comments Due: 7/3/2020
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:


Description – 133160943
Sole Source Supplier: Global Life Sciences Solutions
Earliest Proposed Purchase Date: 7/3/2020
Buyer Name: Anthony Ferrara
Sole Source Justification:


The products (MM3A and controllers) is the only chamber mounted manipulators that are commercially available on the market today. These systems will be installed on the scanning electron microscopy (SEM) system in the PI’s lab.
This equipment and the controller will be purchased under two DOE (Department of Energy) projects. Two separate quotes are attached: (1) CdTe_1058.pdf for 00065-5000-55800989, (2) Perovskites_1146.pdf for 00065-5000-55801000. The CdTe project (00065-5000-55800989) focuses on the low-current measurements, while the Perovskites project (00065-5000-55801000) will maximize the optical fiber attachment.
The SEM in my lab (field-emission SEM; Hitachi 4800S) is a delicate and complicated system that incorporates both sophisticated low-voltage and high voltage circuits, an electron beam source in a high vacuum, a connection of chilled water lines to the main chamber. Previously, the PI used the Kliendiek probes (MM3A) for her research at NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) and is familiar with their operation. The newly collected data using the manipulators will also be compared to other National Labs datasets, including the PI’s previous data acquired using the MM3A at NIST. To reduce the standard deviation arising from equipment, the proposed manipulators and the controllers are required. This task is also described in the DOE projects (i.e., comparison of the data acquired at the PI’s lab to other National Labs (NIST, National Renewable Research Laboratory).This purchase is required to deliver the milestones of the DOE projects in a timely manner.
