Terms: One-time transaction
One vendor submitted three bids lower than the ICON bid. Those bids did not meet specifications, particularly that the operating software for the equipment must have the capability of controlling both of the required pumps and detector seamlessly. The low bidder's systems require that one pump is manually programmed, and can only be triggered by the second pump.
