The University awarded a contract for software to Miami of Ohio University, Oxford, Ohio for an estimated $57,000.
EIU intends to purchase the Degree Audit Records (DARwin) software product from Miami of Ohio University for the following reasons. The State of Illinois via the IBHE and the Illinois legislature has mandated the use of Course Applicability System (CAS) software from Miami of Ohio University for a state-wide course articulation and degree audit program. Virtually all the state's public universities and community colleges are participating. EIU has committed to participation in the CAS project. The CAS and DARwin software products were both developed and are supported by Miami of Ohio University. They are tightly integrated together and are also integrated with the Banner software from SunGard SCT which EIU is currently installing. Currently there is no other proven interface between Banner and CAS. In FY06 the University received HECA grant funds from the Illinois Board of Higher Education (IBHE) to support this participation. The funds went toward the purchase of servers to host the data for CAS and DARwin. The purchase of DARWin will allow us to fulfill our obligation to the State of Illinois CAS initiative and the University's commitment to the EISE/Banner Project while using a product known to work effectively.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the item or service is copyrighted or patented and is not available except from the holder of the copyright or patent.
