The University awarded a contract for student names for recruitment purposes to National Research Center for College & University Admissions, Lees Summit, MO, for an estimated $49,026.
The original Purchase Order was for $35,000, but additional names are needed to meet the needs of SIUC admissions standards. Therefore, additional funds are needed to pay for those additional names.
The University has determined that this purchase is only economically available from this source because the high schools participate in the NRCCUA's Post-Secondary Planning Survey out of a desire to help their students discover all they can about colleges, universities, and other educational opportunities that meet their unique educational needs and individual goals. Once students have completed the survey, SIUC purchases the names of prospective students that meet SIUC's educational profile.
