Vacuum Processes, Inc Awarded FDA Contract

Vacuum Processes was awarded a contract to replace and rebuild a broken vacuum pump for a whole-building HVAC system at a federal building.  The PTAC at SAP&DC worked with Vacuum Processes and the FDA to “clear the air” about some vagueness in the contract.  The challenge that was faced was a very tight timeframe coupled with a holiday weekend.

Follow-up emails with the contract specialist by the PTAC yielded a picture of the equipment plate of the pump.  This information helped VPI provide an economical bid that was accepted and awarded by the FDA.  As of this writing, work has started on the contract and it is ongoing.
