The University intends to award a contract for titanium manufacturing process/prototype services.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the
vendor has expertise in the area of titanium manufacturing, is highly familiar with, and experienced in, the manufacturing of geometrically complex fuel system parts, including military components. In addition, the vendor has unique manufacturing process equipment, test and engineering equipment, and an experienced workforce within 90 minutes of NIU's DeKalb, Rockford and Naperville locations - required because NIU staff need to travel to the vendor regularly to support testing and installation.
