The University awarded a contract for full service maintenance to Jeol USA, Inc., Peabody, MA, for an estimated $93,946.75.
Vendor will provide full service maintenance for two (2) electron microscopes for the period beginning August 1, 2008 through June 30, 2009.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the
compatibility of equipment, accessories, replacement parts, or service is a paramount consideration.
The existing microscopes were purchased from Jeol USA in 1996 and 1997, for approximately $2,252,000. The microscopes are used in a shared laboratory by various faculty members for their on-going research projects.
