The University awarded a contract for field turf surface replacement to Field Turf Tarkett dba Field Turf USA, Houston, TX, for an estimated $500,000.
The University reserves the right to amend this sole source award. Amendments may be issued for reasons including but not limited to increasing or decreasing dollar amounts and/or quantities, and/or to extend or decrease the time period of the term, as needed and as determined to be in the best interest of the University.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the
Field Turf product that we have chosen is a patented, same-brand replacement for the playing surface currently in place but which needs to be replaced due to age and wear, this same-brand patented replacement surface is also designed for and compatible with the patented Field Turf underlayment system already in place, and this vendor is the sole regional distributor for these patented products in Northern Illinois.
