Based on the following determination, the proposed procurement action described below is being procured persuant to the authority of SC Code 11-35-1570 and SC Regulation 19-445.2110.

The Agency proposes to procure: Construction services to demo existing gas-fired water heaters and replace with new energy efficient gas fired waters heaters located with Bldg. 3800 at the McCrady Training Center as an Emergency Procurement from Walker White Inc.

Strong gas odors within the facility led to the discovery of exhaust inversion when both water heaters are running simultaneously. The exhaust is escaping out of the draft damper. This allows gas products of combustion to enter nearby fresh air intakes and enter the living areas and is a safety issue for soldiers sleeping in these areas.

bedplate, dynamometers, data acquisition and control hardware, and test cell automation software for the new Vehicle Propulsion Lab

Clemson University
Bid/Submittal Due Date:
September 17, 2020 - 8:00am
Description:

Clemson intends to sole source the purchase of a bedplate, dynamometers, data acquisition and control hardware, and test cell automation software for the new Vehicle Propulsion Lab from AVL Test Systems, Inc.  The price of phase II of this project is estimated to be $72,000.00.  The current project is intended to complete the second of the two test cells at the Automotive Engineering Department. AVL is the only company that can provide the engine test cell infrastructure and instrumentation that is needed for compatibility and research continuity to match the phase I of the project, completed in 2013. Regarding the software needed, there is a need to have the ability to communicate between the software and be able to interchange hardware. AVL is the only company that offers AVL’s PUMA Automation system, which is needed to communicate between the existing equipment and maintain continuity of research. The goal is to have both test cells operating in parallel and communicating with each other to simulate a hybridized vehicle with both an internal combustion engine and an electric motor. PUMA has this ability. This hardware & software can be moved between the existing test cell and the new, which is required, and would not require the need to buy a second emissions analyzer. In order to have a smooth connection and interface between the data acquisition/control software for the new test cell and the emissions analyzer that was purchased from AVL in 2013, it is important to have AVL’s test cell automation software in the new test cells. For these reasons, this is a sole source.

Description:

In accordance with the Emergency section 11-35-15700 listed in the South Carolina Consolidated Procurement, the College of Charleston is announcing the emergency contract award to Carolina Chiller Inc. for the replacement of two air cooled chillers at the Beatty Center School of Business.

Both of the air cooled chillers that produce chilled water for the cooling system of the Beatty Center School of Business have failed. This failure has rendered the building unusable as an academic learning center. The urgency to replace the chillers to restore the HVAC system needs to be completed prior to the return of on campus studies. Without the chiller units operating, the resulting high indoor air temperature and humidity environment conditions will be harmful to equipment and finishes including creating an environment susceptible to mold growth. Immediate action is necessary to prevent loss of assets or potential remediation of mold growth
