a contract for
Hewlett Packard Compaq computers
Hewlett Packard Corporation, Omaha, NE
NIU requires an order for 92 Hewlett Packard computer workstations in Technology Services of the College of Business. It is imperative that these units be compatible with the existing Hewlett Packard hardware system currently in place in addition to being compatible with the computer software in residence on the system.
These units are receiving Tier I pricing from the manufacturer (Hewlett Packard Corporation) in addition to an E&I Cooperative discount that when taken together provides the lowest available price in the marketplace to the University.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the
compatibility of equipment, accessories, replacement parts, or service is a paramount consideration.
