Chicago State University
SoleSource #1607ITD
Announcement of a Sole Source Purchase
Change Order
Published Thursday October 13, 2016
Vendor: Ellucian Support Inc.
Change Order Amount: $370,267

The original sole source for Ellucian products did not include the cost for purchasing ORACLE products. The total expense for ORACLE over a five year period will be $370,267. The original ORACLE license was purchased in the 90's and no new licensing will be purchased through this transaction. The change order is only for maintenance and support for ORACLE products included in the original 1607ITD. By bundling maintenance and support for Ellucian and Oracle products (Ellucian is a reseller for ORACLE products), CSU was able to obtain the best pricing.
The State Purchasing Officer for this procurement is now Aaron M. Finder.
The University award process may be delayed up to thirty days as this award goes through a state approval process.
