VA NY/NJ Veterans Integrated Service Network (VISN2) intends to negotiate a sole source procurement under the authority of FAR 6.302-1 Only One Responsible Source, with Tecniplast USA for the purchase of the following ventilated animal racks and cages and ancillary items for the Veterinary Medical Unit (VMU) of the John J. Peters (JJP) VAMC in Bronx, NY. The JJP VAMC animal facility is already outfitted with Tecniplast ventilated racks. No other cages will work with Tecniplast racks. It is also crucial to maintain consistency in the lab by outfitting it with the same equipment. Any change in rack, cage or air handler type increases the risk of operational error and puts animals lives at greater risk.
