Report of Actions by Executive Committee
(42) The following action has been taken by the Executive Committee since the last meeting of the board. I now report that action to the board as a whole.
Award of Contract for Repairs to Cooling System, Chicago
Emergency approval was sought to begin repairs to the cooling system chiller in the Utility Center on the east side of the campus. The purchase was exempt from sealed bid requirements because it was for emergency repairs to a 3,500 ton cooling system chiller. A recent routine inspection showed that all condensation and evaporation tubes needed replacement. It was necessary for the repair work to commence immediately in order to provide air conditioning for buildings on the east side of the campus beginning June 1993. The cost is $398,000. Although exempted from sealed bid requirements on the basis of emergency need, three other firms were invited to submit quotations. Each was higher in price that the recommended firm — Gandhi Mechanical Contractors, Inc., Chicago. This firm is also a minority business enterprise.
This report was received for record.
The secretary presented for record appointments to the faculty and changes of status made by the president, resignations, terminations, and retirements. A copy of the report is filed with the secretary.
