The University awarded a contract for electric distribution utility service to Commonwealth Edison, Chicago, IL, for an estimated $23,170,000.
Electric distribution utility service for University of Illinois at Chicago buildings. The university, on information and belief, has concluded that only one vendor can meet its need or can meet the need economically. That vendor is Commonwealth Edison. The university has provided detailed justification to support its conclusion as shown on the attached Sole Source Justification Form. Although the university has presented this as a sole source procurement, we are seeking competitive information from firms with the capability of meeting the university's need (even if performed in a manner different from what has been presented) to contact us and provide sufficient information to show the need can be met. If we receive that information, the Chief Procurement Officer will offer a public hearing to consider the matter. Hearing information is described below.
The University has determined that this purchase is only economically available from this source because the public utility service is regulated.
