The University awarded a contract for Code Blue Emergency Phone Stanchion Upgrade to Will Electronics, St Louis, MO, for $198,174.
The system is a network of Emergency phone units that students, faculty, staff and visitors to SIUE can use to connect directly with the SIUE police department in the event of an emergency or to request information. SIUE is replacing existing stanchions that are weathered and deteriorating. Many units are no longer weather tight causing telecommunication and electrical failures. The entire units are not being replaced, only the stanchions that house the actual phone units.
The University has determined that this purchase is only economically available from this source because the compatibility of equipment, accessories, replacement parts, or service is a paramount consideration.
