The University awarded a contract for a COBOL compiler for PeopleSoft HCM to Oracle Corporation, Troy, MI, for $71,919.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the
compatibility of equipment, accessories, replacement parts, or service is a paramount consideration.
The University has procured a Human Capital Management system from PeopleSoft and components of this application are written in the COBOL language. A copy of the Microfocus COBOL compiler is required for the PeopleSoft applications to run. Microfocus supplies the only supported COBOL compiler for PeopleSoft applications. Further, Microfocus has an exclusive resell contract with the Oracle Corporation to provide this compiler.
