The University awarded a contract for crisis management consulting services.
This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which the need for services to protect or further University interests was immediate and use of other competitive source selection procedures under the Illinois Procurement Code could not have been accomplished without significant risk of causing disadvantages to the University.
An emergency purchase for consulting services for communications counsel for issue management and ongoing support in crisis communications to ensure the maintenance of the of the university's reputation and relationships with stakeholders and the community was required due to numerous recent events and a lack of sufficient internal resources. Northern Illinois University required immediate crisis management services to mitigate negative perception of the University. An RFP is currently being developed to provide these services at the end of the emergency procurement period.
