The University awarded a contract for International Recruiting .
This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which immediate action was needed to prevent any disruption in University services.
Emerging Consultancy, who recruits students from India, recruited 84 students in FY17 at a total cost of $95,800. This was not anticipated, but was very exciting for EIU. We now have a situation that does not fall in line with the purchasing guidelines and the small purchase threshold, but it is also promising to Eastern Illinois University that our international recruiting goals are surpassing our expectations.
