Arthur J. Gallagher
In accordance with Section 526.2025 of the Higher Education Procurement Rules, promulgated by the Chief Procurement Officer for the Public Institutions of Higher Education pursuant to the Illinois Procurement Code (30 ILCS 500) it has been determined that a sole source procurement is required because compatibility and continuity of service is a paramount consideration.
Arthur J. Gallagher Rish Management Services, Inc. provides insurance and various risk management services to all Illinois public universities through a contract with the Illinois Public Higher Education Consortium (IPHEC). The State University Risk Management Association (SURMA), and intergovernmental self-insurance pool comprised of a subset of IPHEC institutions, requires the services of a pool administrator. Gallagher has unique knowledge of and familiarity with SURMA and the risk management service requirements of SURMA members through its association with IPHEC. Due to the foregoing circumstances, it is only economically feasible for Gallagher to be awarded the purchase.
