The University awarded a contract for Water Management Consultation and Design Services to BRiC Partnership, Belleville, IL, for an estimated $108,500.
The Office of the Secretary of State is giving its intent to enter into a contract with BRiC Partnership for Water Management Consultation and Design Services. BRiC partnership has already expended over one year and five months on the project site and is familiar with its systems and buildings. As this firm has already investigated most of the systems and buildings on the State Capitol Complex, we would save funding over having to begin with a firm that is not familiar with these conditions.
The University has determined that this purchase is only economically available from this source because the public utility service is regulated.
