University of Illinois at Chicago awarded a contract for real property leasing for UIC Center for Stroke Research in the amount of $80,000 on Wednesday, August 10, 2005 . The University is issuing an emergency/quick purchase for a four-month lease with the West Side Realty Corporation beginning August 1, 2005 through November 30, 2005 for office space for its Center for Stroke Research while we pursue a new Request for Information. A previous RFI resulted in two bids that were higher cost than anticipated, and two bids with unfavorable locations. This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which immediate action was needed to prevent any disruption in University services.
