Requirement: The Government requires the Medtronic Vertex Kit for multi-level spinal surgeries that will take place Medical Treatment Facility at the Wright Patterson Air Force Base. The spinal surgeries are necessary for patients that have completed spinal, transiliac and/or trans-sacral fractured-dislocation of the spine with an
insignificant, small fragment. This could lead to patients becoming infected and being brought in for surgery to check damaged bone(s).

The items required in the Medtronic Vertex Kit is on an attachment.

The proposed source is Medtronic, Inc. 710 Medtronic Pkwy, Minneapolis, MN 55432-5603

This procurement will not be competed because the aforementioned Medtronic Vertex Kit is the only known systems that the ortho-spine surgeon is trained on for multi-level spinal surgeries. This system will aide in the ability to complete more complicated surgeries in a timely manner. If these are items in the Medtronic Vertex Kit are not used, then the surgeries in the future would need to be sent off base at a substantial duplication cost of approximately $89,000.

The Government will award a contract to the responsible Offeror whose offer conforms to the solicitation and is most advantageous to the Government, price and other factors considered. Technical Capability and Price will be used to evaluate all offers.
