Small Business Set-Aside
The Department of Veterans Affairs intends to negotiate a sole source contract with Metro Medical Support Services to purchase a Maquet Cardiohelp-i Heart Lung Support System and the associated items. This system must be Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) capable. The system must also have the ability to monitor Arterial Pressure, Venous Pressure, Internal Pressure, SVo2, Hemoglobin, Hematocrit, Venous temperature and Arterial Temperature so that the clinician can quickly determine the patient's physiological hemodynamic condition and make necessary adjustments to the machine. In addition, the machine needs automated safety controls that will allow the surgeon to define performance parameters on the machine so that they can attend to other patients while leaving the care of the patient to another healthcare professional without the need to constantly make manual adjustments. The device also needs to be small enough to fit on the patient's bed during transport due to space limitations on an elevator. This system is for the Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC) Cleveland, Ohio. The North American Industry Classification System Code (NAICS) is 339112. The Government believes that Metro Medical Support Services, the sole small business distributor for Maquet (manufacturer), is the only provider that can satisfy the agency requirements. Therefore, the Government intends to proceed with a sole source for the following items: Maquet Cardiohelp-i, Sprinter Cart, Top Shelf Kit, Shelf Kit for Hypothermia Devices, Infusion Pole, Gas Bottle Holder, Maquet BEQ-HLS 7050, Maquet BO-HIT 7050 and the Maquet Cardiohelp-i Gold Extended Warranty. This procurement is being conducted in accordance with FAR 6.302 - only one responsible source and no other vendor will satisfy agency requirements. To the best of our knowledge, Maquet Medical Systems USA and Metro Medical Support Services are the only sources that provide the above indicated requirement. Maquet Medical is a large business; the manufacturer of the Cardiohelp-i and Metro Medical Support Services is their sole authorized distributor. Metro Medical Support Services is a Small-Disadvantaged Business. This notice of intent is not a request for competitive quotes. No solicitation document is available; however, any firm that believes it can meet these requirements may give written notification to the Contracting Officer within ten (10) calendar days from the date of publication of this synopsis. Supporting evidence must be furnished in sufficient detail to demonstrate the ability to comply with the above requirements. Information can be sent to the Contracting Officer, VA Ambulatory Care Center, 420 N. James Road, Columbus, Ohio 43219-1834 or faxed to 614.388.7500. Responses received will be evaluated, however a determination by the Government not to compete the proposed procurement based upon responses to this notice is solely within the discretion of the Government. If no responses are received, the Cleveland VA Medical Center will proceed with the sole source negotiation with Metro Medical Support Services.
