The University awarded a contract for an orthopedic anterior cervical screw system to Seaspine Inc, Vista, CA, USA, for an estimated $1,500,000.
The system is used to correct major spinal deformities with minimal invasive spine surgery. The system has an integrated locking cap and screw set. The vendor owns the patent on the screw system, so this purchase is a sole source.
The University has determined that this purchase is only economically available from this source because the Federal or State grant requires a contract with the vendor.
