Delegation of Authority to Award a Contract, Security System, Willard Airport
(30) Recent Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations require that an automated security system be installed at Willard Airport no later than December 31, 1993. The proposed $300,000' project includes a security system for the Airport Terminal Building and exterior fence openings adjacent to the perimeter of the building. In order for the project to be completed within schedule, it is essential that a contract be awarded prior to the September 1993 meeting of the board. Accordingly, the president of the University, with the concurrence of the appropriate administrative officers, recommends that the comptroller be delegated the authority to award a contract to the lowest responsible bidder provided the total of the bids received does not exceed $235,000. The project consists of an electronically controlled and supervised security system with control devices located on doors leading to the airfield and other areas of high security. A report of the contract awarded for the project will be presented to the board at its September 1993 meeting. Funds for the project are available from a grant from the Federal Aviation Administration and from Willard Airport operating funds.
On motion of Ms. Reese, this recommendation was approved by the following vote: Aye, Dr. Bacon, Mrs. Calder, Dr. Gindorf, Mr. Grabowski, Mrs. Gravenhorst, Mr. Lamont, Ms. Lopez, Ms. Reese; no, none; absent, Mr. Boyle, Governor Edgar. (The student advisory vote was: Aye, Ms. Huff, Mr. Riley; no, none.)
