Sole Source #64573bjm
Announcement of a Sole Source Purchase
Tuesday February 22, 2005
intends to award
a contract for
Milliken & Company
Milliken is making available to NIU a first-run quality carpet. This is a proprietary purchase direct from the manufacturer due to a manufacturer error. (Milliken produced this carpet for another client, but the carpet was manufactured with the wrong background color). Milliken has presented NIU with this highly time-sensitive window of opportunity to purchase this run of carpet at a greatly discounted price. This carpet is not available through dealers and can only be purchased direct from the manufacturer. Therefore, this purchase of carpet is deemed the most economically feasible source and in the best interest of the University.
This is a contract for carpet tile for Founders Memorial Library and Lincoln Residence Hall.
