This purchase is exempt from the usual selection processes of the Procurement Code because the procurement expenditure is for performing sponsored research and other sponsored activities under grants and contracts funded by the sponsor or by sources other than State appropriations. (30 ILCS 500 / 1-13(b)(8)) The funds to be used to purchase this equipment were specifically awarded to UIC through a large instrumentation grant by the National Science Foundation (NSF). These items are X-ray optical components that will be installed in a new X-ray beamline that will be built at Sector 15 of the Advanced Photon Source at Argonne National Laboratory. This is part of the required scope of work as funded by NSF.
