Announcement of a Sole Source Purchase

First published Friday May 25, 2007
The University intends to award a contract for nonhuman primates to Three Springs Scientific Inc., Perkasie, PA for $70,000.
These nonhuman primates are 12 male Rhesus Macaques, Chinese origin, weighing between 3.5 - 5 kilograms, and malaria free.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the research animals must be of specified species, sex, weight, and age in order to accomodate research protocols. These animals must often be purchased from the same vendor in order to assure consistence and validity of data.

Any vendor who believes it can meet all requirements of this sole economically feasible source contract must submit a detailed written statement demonstrating its qualifications and ability to perform as required, must also offer a price lower than that of the selected vendor, and must provide any other information to show how it can offset the cost advantage of the selected vendor. Any such challenge must be submitted in writing to Margaret Kibaya by June 8, 2007. Late challenges will not be considered.
