The Naval Medical Logistics Command (NMLC) intends to award a sole source contract under the authority of FAR 6.302-1 to Philips Healthcare, 22100 Bothell Everett Hwy, Bothell, WA, 98021-8431, for a maintenance contract for the Philips Healthcare ClearVue 550 Ultrasound and Philips Healthcare EPIQ5 Ultrasound equipment.

This requirement is in support of ongoing research protocols at Naval Medical Research Unit San Antonio (NAMRU-SA), Fort Sam Houston, Texas.

The ClearVue 550 and EPIQ5 Ultrasounds have been covered under warranty since its original purchase date and to ensure data integrity, NAMRU-SA requires that no lapse in service warranty coverage occur. Philips Healthcare is the only company that can provide the preventative maintenance due to proprietary equipment, technology, and software.
