Awarded to:
Vendor:  Steris Corporation, Erie, PA
Amount:  $40,693
Terms:   One-time transaction
Number of Unsuccessful, Responsive Bidders: 4
The award is being made to Steris Corporation over two lower bidders for the following reasons: The low bidder offered a reconditioned unit with a submarine door design, neither of which are as specified. The next lower bid does not afford electronic control which was specified, and the Steris model sterilization cycles offer more flexibility. In addition, the second low bidder's delivery schedule of 90-120 days will not allow for state funds to be expended prior to the FY04 cutoff date. The Steris unit delivery schedule is 30 days ARO.
The University award process may be delayed up to thirty days as this award goes through a state approval process.
