Single Source Procurement: Scientific Oversight of Stem Cell Consortia

Pursuant to New York State Finance Law § 163.10(b), The New York State Department of Health is presenting the following summary of relevant circumstances, and material and substantial reasons why a competitive procurement was not feasible. This contract was originally awarded to American Biological Institute (AIBS) through a competitive procurement. Recently, all three of the consortia awards which AIBS has been selected to provide oversight via this contract have received No-Cost-Time-Extensions. To ensure that the consortia awards continue to receive proper oversight, it was imperative that the AIBS contract C029890 be extended as well. Extending this contract ensures that AIBS meets the deliverables of their contract, which includes drafting a closeout scientific report and summation of activities for each of the three NYSTEM consortia awards.
