The University awarded a contract for a software license for an IBM zSeries mainframe to IBM Corporation, Springfield, IL, for an estimated $485,000.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the compatibility of equipment, accessories, replacement parts, or service is a paramount consideration. IBM is the only source because the software is proprietary and no other vendor produces or sells an operating system for the zSeries Enterprise Server.
