The award was made to Ward Chrysler as the low bidder meeting specifications. There were two other bidders with lower pricing than Ward Chrysler, (Morrow Brothers Ford of Greenfield, Il, and Joe Hotze Ford of Salem Il). The initial solicitation requested fold-away stow and go seating for the second and third row seats. Morrow Ford and Joe Hotze Ford bid the standard Ford product which does not offer the fold-away stow and go seating, but merely a fold-away seat which will not afford the additional storage space required for the intended use of the requesting department.
The University award process may be delayed up to thirty days as this award goes through a state approval process.
