Comments:
At this time, the University is awarding to these three previously awarded vendors for the two additional categories which were not awarded on June 15, 2018. The categories are Category 8 - Operational, Clinical, Transactional, Educational and Research Regulatory Compliance and Category 12 - Public & Private Third Party Payer Billing, Payment, and Reimbursement. Awards were made by category with primary and secondary awardees. The estimated award amounts are by category and allocated in this notice to both the primary and secondary awardee in total since it is not known at this time which awardee will receive individual transactions under the award. See the Updated_Awardees_By_Category document attached for the breakdown of awards by category and estimated award amounts. The award amounts for these two categories are in addition to the amounts previously published in the award published on June 15, 2018.

The University has also updated the document titled Updated_1SLE1801_Additional_Award_Information to identify Business Enterprise Program (BEP) vendors who submitted proposals which may be available for potential subcontracting opportunities.

The University award process may be delayed up to thirty days as this award goes through a state approval process.
