Emergency Award #R206520-0001E
Announcement of an Emergency Award/Quick Purchase
Change Order
Published Monday October 1, 2012
Vendor: Desire 2 Learn
Change Order Amount: $52,196

This will replace the previous revision. This is a notice for a hearing for an extension of the original 90 day emergency contract. The extension is requested due to the fact that the evaluation process for the RFP# R1126M will not be completed by the end of the 90 day emergency contract. The proposals are due to be opened on 9-20-12 at 2:00pm. The evaluation process may also require presentations from prospective vendors, which will require additional evaluation time. The evaluation schedule will not allow enough time to complete the evaluation process and have a new contract in place prior to the emergency contract expiring. A transition period over the winter break would be required to install a new system and complete training to avoid disruption to the academics on the SIUC campus. The estimated amount of the extension will be $52,196. The extension will only be necessary until 12-31-12.

Hearing to take place on October 5th, 2012 at 9:00 am. at the following address:

Stratton Building
401 South Spring Street
Room 511
Springfield, IL 62706
Call in number is as follows: 1-888-494-4032 with the access code of 3638388377.

First published Tuesday, July 24, 2012
The University awarded a contract for Learning Management System.
This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which immediate action was needed to prevent any disruption in University services.
Due to misinterpretation of the original contract, the renewal date has passed. The Learning Management System (LMS) is the primary source for all of our online courses, as well as a resource for approximately 85% of on-campus courses. We cannot meet the teaching needs of the University in the interim without an LMS, which provides course-work, testing, surveys, and ePortfolios. In addition, many campus committees are using the system to conduct their work.
