Description:

In compliance with the requirements in Section 11-35-1560 of the South Carolina Consolidated Procurement Code and in accordance with Regulation 19-445.2105, South Carolina Judicial Branch, SCJB, announces the intent to award a Sole Source procurement to BIS Digital.

 

Since 2017, the SCJB has been experiencing difficulty attracting and hiring a sufficient number of traditional court reporters to capture the record using stenography and voice writing technologies in Circuit and Family courts. Owing to the nationwide shortage of traditional court reporters, the SCJB had to implement digital/electronic technologies to ensure that the record could be captured accurately and reliably.

In fiscal year 2020, SCJB solicited 3 written quotes for commercial of the shelf software to assist SCJB with its digital recording needs. Pursuant to 11-35-1550 (2b) SCJB entered into an agreement with BIS to provide its Digital Court Reporter (DCR) software. This partnership is extremely advantageous to SCJB since BIS can also provide the necessary hardware for the project through the South Carolina State Wide Contract for Audio Visual Products and Services.

BIS is the only company that can maintain and support their software. They are also the only company that can train new SCJB employees on the use of their software.

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
