The Utah Attorney General’s Office has issued its Opioid RFP Procurement Findings as well as its Opioid RFP Contract with Motley Rice, LLC; Fears Nachawati; Ferrer, Poirot & Wansbrough; and Prince, Yeats & Geldzahler.
Both can be viewed here:
The State of Utah filed a lawsuit last May against Purdue Pharma in Carbon County, one of the counties hardest hit by the opioid epidemic. For a quick overview of this office’s work to combat the opioid crisis (as of March 2018), click here.
The Attorney General’s Office issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) on Friday, June 22nd, seeking qualified law firms to submit proposals to represent the State of Utah in litigation concerning prescription opioids.
You can access the RFP here: http://bids.sciquest.com/apps/Router/PublicEvent?CustomerOrg=StateOfUtah, or by following links on the Department of Purchasing’s website: https://purchasing.utah.gov/.
In either case, search for “BP18025.” You can access the documents without registering with SciQuest, but you will need to register to submit a proposal. At this point, all questions and communications must go through SciQuest (see section 1.5 of the RFP) unless otherwise stated in the RFP.
This RFP will close on July 17, 2018.
The Office of the Attorney General appreciates your interest. You’ll remember that, in early May, we issued an RFI to gather information. Then at the end of May, we announced that the State of Utah had filed a lawsuit against Purdue Pharma in Carbon County, one of the counties hardest hit by the opioid epidemic.
