|Illinois Department of Central Management Services (CMS) is giving notice of its intent to award a contract to Amerisochi Inc. as a result of the Invitation for Bid (IFB) issued under this reference number 226548 for Hospital Supplies, as outlined within the bid document. One bidder (Webnet Inc.) was non-compliant because they did not submit a BEP plan with their bid. Two bidder’s BEP plans (Kentron Helathcare Inc., and Absolute Logistics LLC.) were determined to be non-responsive and therefore were disqualified. One bid (Medline Inc.) was received late and was returned to the vendor.|
Award is being given to the low-cost responsive and responsible bidder.
Determination was made that the anticipated cost will be fair and reasonable for lines 4, 11, 51-54, 58, 72, 130, 142, 147, 159, 174-175. All other lines were deemed to be excessive and will be rebid on a new solicitation. Please continue to monitor the Illinois Procurement Bulletin for further bid opportunities.
Contract start date is an estimate. Actual start date will be no sooner than last signature on contract or execution, whichever occurs last. In no event shall contract be executed prior to meeting all procurement requirements.
This solicitation contained a 10% Business Enterprise Program goal.
