Funds, as required, will be authorized by a contract work order which will be charged against funds allocated for each project. It is also recommended that the comptroller be authorized to approve work orders under these contracts. A schedule of the bids received has been filed with the secretary of the board for record. (Note: A proposal from Abatement Management, Inc., East Alton, was received in the amount of $20,470 for estimated fee payments. The firm has notified the University of an error in its bid and requested permission to withdraw it, since, due to the error, the firm could not fulfill its contractual obligation without suffering economic hardship. The assistant director for utilities and maintenance, the chief civil engineer, and the project manager (Operation and Maintenance Division) have determined that there is clear and demonstrable evidence that the bidder made a bona fide error in the preparation of the bid, that the error will result in a substantial loss to the bidder, and have recommended that the bidder be allowed to withdraw its bid. The university counsel has stated that, under these circumstances, the University's regulations allow the University to permit the withdrawal.)
