The University awarded a contract for consulting services to Marcum Martz, Kewaskuw, WI, for
an estimated $50,000
The construction of the Northern Illinois Proton Therapy and Research Center requires a highly specialized shielding protection to ensure environmental safety and protection for the radioactive materials generated during proton therapy treatment. This procurement is to contract the professional radiation shielding consulting services of Marcum Martz to provide compliance verification, shielding calculations, and to perform surveys related to the construction of the Northern Illinois Proton Therapy and Research Center.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the
project requires a highly skilled and experienced consultant with reputable qualifications and a knowledge of Illinois Emergency Management Agency policies and procedures. Also, due to the vendor's close proximity to the construction site and on the recommendation of our physics consultant, who has over 20 years experience in proton therapy, it is in the best interest of the university to hire Mr. Marcum Martz, CHP, as the solely feasible vendor of choice for this procurement.
