Announcement of a Sole Source Purchase
Change Order
Published Tuesday March 8, 2016
Vendor: The Jackson Laboratory
Change Order Amount: $175,000

An increase of $ 175,000 to the indefinite contract award of $ 400,000 is needed for unforeseen research animal purchases until the 6/30/2016 expiration date.

Researchers have request specific strains of animals (rodents, mice and rats) that can only be acquired from The Jackson Labs . Numerous research projects will utilize these animals from this source for the remainder of the renewal period (June 30, 2016). No genetic variations can be made or they will interfere with consistency of experimental results and can jeopardize very expensive and important research. Purchase of animals (rodents, mice & rats) from the same vendor provides less variability in the research and thus greatly improves the quality and reproductiblity of the studies. Therefore, it is essential to continue to purchase animals from the same source that previously supplied animals for those studies.
The buyer for this procurement is now John Meehan, (312) 413-5961.
The State Purchasing Officer for this procurement is now Aaron M. Finder.
The University award process may be delayed up to thirty days as this award goes through a state approval process.
