Amendment to Solicitation 36C261-19-Q-0621 QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS QUESTION: On page 4 under Gradient System the standard strength is listed at 35.. is this a typo? Generally, the strength and stew rate is at 33120. I just want to clarify if this was a misprint or not. ANSWER: Every gradient system is characterized by its degree of linearity, maximum amplitude (strength, measured in mT/m), and rise time (i.e., slew rate, measured in T/m/sec). The SOW required that the strength is 35 (must have been a typo, should be 33), but it s not unreasonable to require such (our new Signa Artist will have a strength of 45 mT/m at 200T/m/sec! this is today s standards). These factor impact the speed of imaging. Included the strength and slew rate of some 1.5T MRI systems below. The question above states a measurement of 33120 which refers to a standard strength in the z-axis of 33 mT/m and a slew rate of 120 T/m/sec, which one be the GE Signa Creator or GE Signa Explorer below. Manufacturer GE Healthcare SIGNA Artist 1.5T GE Healthcare SIGNA Creator 1.5T GE Healthcare SIGNA Explorer 1.5T GRADIENT SYSTEM         Standard name eXtreme Creator Explorer   Standard strength, z-axis, mT/m 45 33 33   Standard slew rate, z-axis, T/m/sec 200 120 120 QUESTION: On page 13 the solicitation has the Gray Market Prevention Language - Are you wanting to lease a brand-new machine for only 4-6 months? I ask this because we have an MRI that is fully remanufactured and certified through the OEM. Would this be acceptable? ANSWER: There is no brand-new system that can be outfitted into a trailer for our purpose. Almost mobile MRI are pre-owned or repurposed. We do require OEM parts for repairs.
