The University awarded a contract for Siemen's Syngo Ultasound PACS support to Siemens Medical Solutions, Inc., Cary, NC, for an estimated $450,000.
Continual software support from Siemens Medical Solutions, Inc. and service maintenance of a Syngo Ultasound PACS applications.

This purchase is for service support maintenance for the existing ultrasound PACs application that was originaly purchased from Siemens. Siemens is the only vendor who can provide support for their proprietary software and service maintenance for the hardware systems. As mentioned, it is an FDA requirement to have the software and hardware from the same manufacturer so that the system can be certified as a unit and in turn needs to be maintained by the same company.
The University has determined that this purchase is only economically available from this source because the procurement is software license, upgrade or maintenance.
