Intent to Sole Source
The Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) and Medical University Hospital Authority (MUHA),
Engineering and Facilities Management in accordance with §11-35-1560 (A) of the SC Consolidated
Procurement Code, intends to award without competition, a five (5) year sole source contract to
Hoffman & Hoffman, Inc. to supply air filters that withstands temperature at a minimum of 200 degrees
Fahrenheit.
Engineering and Facilities requires a supplier to provide filters that meet a minimum temperature
requirement of 200 degrees Fahrenheit. This is a requirement in MUSC/MUHA facilities due to the close
proximity to preheat steam coils supplied within the HVAC system. The steam and heat degrade filters
with limits below 200 degrees Fahrenheit, which causes the filter to fall apart and travel down the
ductwork. This creates a situation where unfiltered airs will then travel through the ductwork and allow
possibly harmful air particles to be spread throughout patient care areas, laboratories and possibly send
contaminated filter media down through the HVAC system.
Engineering and Facilities also requires storage and installation of those filters when required.
Currently, MUSC does not have space available to provide storage for these filters anywhere on
campus. A portion of this service shall include delivering the filters that will be installed the week of
installation. The contractor can utilize a storage vehicle that can be parked on campus but cannot drop
off hundreds/thousands of filters at a time for MUSC to store them. MUSC can provide advanced notice
for ordering/manufacturing the filters but cannot receive the filters other than the calendar week of
installation.
