Waiver of University Purchasing Rules, Remodeling Craniofacial Center, College of Dentistry, Chicago
(21) The proposed $2,000,130 project consists of remodeling approximately 16,483 nasf of the existing first and fourth floor areas in the College of Dentistry building to provide for the relocation of the cleft palate clinic, maxillofacial prosthetics clinic, and the director's office, and research component to establish the Craniofacial Center. A separate public entrance to the Craniofacial Center will also be developed. In addition to the construction of the Craniofacial Center, the second floor of the building will be remodeled for another college department required to vacate the proposed craniofacial space. Mechanical and electrical systems revisions will also be included in the proposed project. Bids for the remodeling project are to be received on February 14, 1994. While the Regulations Governing Procurement and Bidding at the University require that separate bids be taken for the major divisions of work on a construction project (plumbing, heating, ventilation, and electrical), the changes made to the Illinois Purchasing Act last year by the Illinois General Assembly permit single, lump-sum bids on such projects. Accordingly, the president of the University, with the concurrence of the appropriate administrative officers, recommends that the board approve a waiver of the University's normal practices on bidding procedures to permit the solicitation of single bids for the College of Dentistry remodeling project at the Chicago campus.
On motion of Mr. Boyle, 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.)
