The vendor will provide the owner, Northern Illinois University, with a site-specific safety program for the construction project for the Convocation Center. This will include safety audits, site visits, safety training classes, manuals, vendor meetings and other activities conducive to providing a safe construction environment. This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which the need for services to protect or futher University interests was immediate and use of other competitve source selection procedures under the Illinois Procurement Code could not have been accomplished without significant risk of causing disadvantages to the University.
