Northern Illinois University awarded a contract for an Omax pump replacement in the amount of $31,229.35 on Wednesday, July 14, 2004 . The College of Engineering and the Physical Plant, on the NIU DeKalb campus, rely upon a water jet machine to create many needed parts. This machine required a new pump. This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which immediate action was needed to prevent any disruption in University services.
