The University awarded a contract for Blackboard Learning System software maintenance to Blackboard, Inc., Washington, DC, for $70,864.66.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the compatibility of equipment, accessories, replacement parts, or service is a paramount consideration.

It is used for grading, administering tests and quizzes, delivering required course materials and much more. It is in the best interest of the University to continue to use the Blackboard Learning System, and Blackboard is the only source for this software maintenance.
