Amendment to Lease Agreement with U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for CERL, Urbana
(23) On February 16, 1972, the Board of Trustees requested the University of Illinois Foundation to construct for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Army), at Interstate Research Park in Champaign, a building for housing a Shock Test Machine. The debt service for this building and other facilities constructed at this site for CERL by the Foundation was to be amortized through a rental agreement between CERL and the Foundation. In June 1985, the facilities were acquired by the University and all rights and obligations under the rental agreement were assigned by the Foundation to the University. In 1986, an additional office facility was constructed. The current lease, which runs through April 2003, provides for payment by CERL to the University of $617,000 a year to cover the costs of debt repayment and other facility-related expenses. The Army has requested the University design and construct a new pump room and other work directly related to an upgrade of the Shock Test Machine, as well as new office space and a test specimen construction area. The machine upgrade will be paid for by CERL. It is estimated that the design, construction, and related costs for the improvement of the facility will be approximately $1 million. The construction will be funded initially through the use of reserves associated with the CERL facilities. The lease with the Army will be amended to require additional rental payment of approximately $200,000 a year for a seven-year period. These payments will restore the present reserves. The chancellor at Urbana recommends that the comptroller be authorized to proceed with the planning and construction for remodeling and adding to the existing Shock Test Building and to amend the rental agreement with the U.S. Army as described.
On motion of Mr. Lamont, this recommendation was approved by the following vote: Aye, Dr. Bacon, Mr. Boyle, Mrs. Calder, Dr. Gindorf, Mr. Grabowski, Mrs. Gravenhorst, Mr. Lamont, Ms. Lopez, Ms. Reese; no, none; absent, Governor Edgar. (The student advisory vote was: Aye, Ms. Huff, Mr. Riley; no, none.)
