The University awarded a contract for child care lunches to Voluntary Action Center, Sycamore, IL, for an estimated $85,000.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the Voluntary Action Center is a not-for-profit organization singularly qualified to perform this service for NIU because the VAC is partnered with the federal Head Start Program in conjunction with the USDA's Child and Adult Care Food Program, and through this direct and subsidized relationship provides economical child-care lunch services to NIU in total compliance with federal guidelines outlined by these U.S. governmental agencies and programs. Also, because the VAC receives federal subsidies, NIU in turn not only benefits from the low pricing structure provided by this vendor, but also receives reimbursement for a considerable portion of these lunch costs from the State of Illinois.
