a contract for
Hewlett Packard Notebook computers
Victorin Business Machines, Elmhurst, IL
The Executive MBA Program for Northern Illinois University requires an order for 30 HP Compaq Business Notebook computers, Model nc6120, to be used by the students. These units must be compatible with existing HP hardware and software currently being used and running on the College of Business computer systems. The hardware must also be compatible with maintenance services within the College.
These units are being purchased from the vendor currently supplying maintenance services on the College of Business equipment under special permission from the manufacturer (Hewlett Packard). The University is receiving the manufacturer's Tier 1 pricing in addition to an E&I Cooperative discount, which taken together provides the lowest possible current pricing offered.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the
compatibility of equipment, accessories, replacement parts, or service is a paramount consideration.
