The University awarded a contract for conference facilities to Crowne Plaza Hotel, Springfield, IL, for
an estimated $180,000
This facility was selected for the statewide Connection Conference because of the location, facility amenities, and accomodations available for a conference of 1,000 plus attendees. The funding agency, the Illinois State Board of Education, for this conference, reserves the primary role in determining the conference location. The cost of the conference will be paid from attendees registration fees.
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 chosen facility has the most appropriate accomodations to match the required needs and location for the conference.
