Chairman Leecy dispenses with the minutes.

 

Andy Datko is requesting sole source purchasing for equipment for the new Vermilion Clinic in order to make sure the equipment is consistent with the equipment already in place at the Nett Lake clinic so there will be the same vendors for maintenance and service issues.

 

Moved by Ray Toutloff; seconded by David Morrison, Sr.; to authorize the use of sole source purchasing procedures for the following equipment for the new Vermilion clinic from the specified vendors:

Brewer Company (Exam Treatment Tables) – Estimated GSA pricing of approximately $27,000.

Welch Allyn (Diagnostic Instruments, Exam Lighting) – Estimated GSA pricing of approximately $5,000.

Abbott (Cell Dyne Hematology Analyzer) – Estimated GSA pricing of approximately $15,500.

The final price may vary, but will be consistent with GSA pricing as determined by Indian Health Service.  Carried 4-0-0.
