Approval to award Invitation for Bids Y9-189-PD, EMS Pharmaceuticals, to the low
responsive and responsible bidder, Bound Tree Medical, LLC, for a 1-year term contract
renewable for a maximum of two additional years by the Purchasing and Contracts
Division in the estimated contract amount of $218,597 for Line Items 1, 2, 3, 4, 5,6, 7,
9, 11, 12, 13, 16, 18, 19, 20, 24, 25, 27, 28, 29, 30, 33, 34, 35, 38, 39 and 40. The Fire
Rescue Department anticipates that the entire contract amount will be ordered on an
annual basis. The Fire Rescue Department concurs with this recommendation.
This contract will provide pharmaceuticals to the Fire Rescue Department for the
delivery of Emergency Medical Services (EMS) to the citizens of Orange County.
Five (5) bids were received in response to this Invitation for Bids. The bids were
evaluated for price, responsiveness and responsibility. Life Specialty Pharmacy and
Regimed were determined to be non-responsible due to the lack of the required license
from the state of Florida Department of Health to provide these pharmaceuticals.
Midwest Medical was determined to be non-responsible due to the lack of verifiable
references to confirm their experience. Although Physician Sales and Service was the
low bidder for item 3, it was confirmed that the product they offered would not be
available until the end of June. Consequently, this line item will be awarded to Bound
Tree, the second low bidder for the item. Also, on Item 30, Physician Sales and Service
failed to bid on the specific Lifesheild item required. Therefore, this item was also
awarded to the second low bidder, Bound Tree. All remaining line items were awarded
