1.0 Background: The Southern Arizona VA Healthcare System s (SAVAHCS) Engineering and Research departments have a need for a Contractor to provide all parts, labor, test equipment, materials, transportation, supervision, and original equipment manufacturers (OEM) trained technicians required for the maintenance and repair of Konica Minolta copier equipment listed in Appendix A for the main SAVAHCS facility located in Tucson, Arizona and its associated Community Base Outpatient Clinics (CBOCs) locations and Appendix B for SAVAHCS Research Department - collectively referred to as the Government and the Customer throughout this document.

Service Technician(s) must be Konica Minolta certified. Certification must be verifiable prior to the beginning of each Option Year.

2.0 Pricing:

Research expects their monthly usage to be as follows:

10,000 Black and White Copies per Month

1,000 Color Copies per Month
