Announcement of a Sole Source Purchase
Change Order
Published Tuesday May 29, 2012
Vendor: Bio-Rad Laboratories
Change Order Amount: $70,000

The purpose of this announcement is to modify the amount estimated at the beginning of the FY12 and FY13 renewals. The University exercised a renewal (2nd of 3) for life science products for July 1, 2011 through June 30, 2012 in the estimated amount of $170,915.18. The University also exercised a renewal for these products (3rd of 3) for the term beginning July 1, 2012, also in the estimated amount of $170,915.18 Those amounts were estimated based on historic expenditures for the purchase of these products through the Research Resources Supply Center.

Actual expenditures are never 100% predictable because they vary as a function of estimated data and information that may change.

Actual expenditures for FY12 to-date have increased on account of an influx of new investigators at the University who are purchasing the life science products through the Research Resources Center Supply Center, as well as due to the acquisition of a new BioRad machine that uses these supplies. Consequently, the $170,915.18 awarded for the FY12 renewal and the $170,915.18 awarded for the FY13 renewal are underestimated.

The Change Order amount requests an increase of an additional $ 35,000 for each of the FY12 and FY13 renewals, bringing the value of the FY12 renewal to $205,915.18, and the value of the FY13 renewal also to $205,915.18. This purchase remains economically available from a single source because the researchers started their experiments with certain gels, standards, plates and buffers only available from BioRad, and need to continue their work with these reagents and items. Any change in vendor would necessitate re-corroboration, reevaluation, and re-validation of all research data previously collected by UIC investigators using BioRad equipment and supplies. The BioRad gels only fit in the BioRad gel rig and western blot apparatus
The buyer for this procurement is now Aaron Rosenthal, (312) 996-8074.
The University award process may be delayed up to thirty days as this award goes through a state approval process.
