Pricing is estimated based on known or potential projects during the initial term of the award. Changes in these projects or the types of projects could increase or decrease these estimates accordingly. Similarly, the BEP utilization is also dependent on these projects, and the vendors may be used more or less than the estimated amounts. The overall BEP goal of 5% is proposed to be met by using a combination of these three vendors.

The University award process may be delayed up to thirty days as this award goes through a state approval process.
