This RFP had eight vendors that responded. All of their bids met every requirement requested in the RFP, and each vendor is currently doing business at some or all of the 13 IPHEC member school group. Awards will need to be made to all eight respondents in order to cover all 13 IPHEC member schools, based upon geographical and/or required product listings offered. The determining factor(s) for which a particular vendor will be chosen, will be based upon the type of research that is being done and which type of equipment will best suit that individual research project.

The projected dollar figures are based on current usage figures and are estimates for the initial two year and nine month period.
The University award process may be delayed up to thirty days as this award goes through a state approval process.
