Change Order
Published Thursday January 19, 2012
Vendor: Arthrex
Change Order Amount: $440,000

The purpose of this announcement is to modify the amount estimated for the two year term (4/5/11 thru 3/31/13) of this purchase. Actual expenditures are never predictable because they vary based upon patient volume and medical usage. Arthrex bio-corkscrews usage has increased almost three-fold since the inception of this product.Usage since 4/5/11 has already doubled. Consequently this change order amount of $440,000 represents the projected increase through the contract term ending 3/31/13. This purchase remains a sole source because the item is patented and is only available from the patent holder, Arthrex.
The buyer for this procurement is now John Meehan, (312) 413-5961.
The University award process may be delayed up to thirty days as this award goes through a state approval process.
