Announcement of a Sole Source Purchase

The hearing has been cancelled
Published Tuesday August 16, 2022
The hearing has been cancelled since no vendors registered to attend or submitted comments regarding this notice.
First published Tuesday, August 2, 2022
The University intends to award a contract for consulting services and acquiring manuscripts to Sylvia Rodrigue, dba Sylverlining, North Easton, MA, for an estimated $172,776.
Vendor will provide consulting services and acquire manuscripts in American history and criminology and other disciplines for University Press.
The University, on information and belief, has concluded that only one vendor can meet its need or can meet the need economically. That vendor is Sylvia Rodrigue, dba Sylverlining. The University has provided detail justification to support its conclusion as shown on the attached Sole Source Justification form.
Although the University has presented this as a sole source procurement, we are seeking competitive information from firms with the capability of meeting the University's need (even if performed in a manner different from what has been presented) to contact us and provide sufficient information to show the need can be met. If we receive that information, the Chief Procurement Officer will offer a public hearing to consider the matter. Hearing information is described below
The University has determined that this purchase is only economically available from this source because the vendor is the only editor currently available who meets all of the specifications for this position.

We will hold a public hearing at the date, time and location specified below, if we receive a request to testify regarding the sole source determination. We will also hold a hearing if any vendor submits a signed statement showing the capability to provide the stated supplies/services at or below the amount indicated.

The public hearing allows any interested party the opportunity to testify for or against the sole source determination as described in this notice. The purpose of the hearing is to receive information from the public in a reasonable manner. Formal rules of evidence will not apply. The hearing officer will produce minutes of the hearing and may record it in order to aid in the production of the minutes. After conclusion of the hearing we will decide whether the sole source determination was appropriate.

We must receive any request to testify and any vendor statement no later than the registration date and time indicated below. If we do not receive a timely request or statement, we will not hold the hearing. We reserve the right to cancel the procurement prior to any scheduled hearing.
