The University awarded a contract for gas utilities service to People's Energy Corp., Chicago for an estimated $80,000 f.o.b. delivered.
This is a contract for gas utilities service for a university building for the period beginning August 1, 2005 through June 30, 2006. People's Energy is the sole source for providing gas utilites in the Chicago area. There are no other companies competing with People's Energy in the Chicago area. The estimated expenditure is calculated by the usage of gas times the fair market value of regulated public utility. This purchase is renewable for up to 9 additional one-year periods at the same terms and conditions subject to continuing need and availability of funds with the comptroller authorized to exercise such options. There are only two public utilities serving the City of Chicago - People's Energy (heating) and Com Ed (electricity). While alternate suppliers may exist, the transportation and distribution would still have to be provided by People's Energy and Com Ed from the city gate to the building site. It is the University's opinion that seeking alternative suppliers for natural gas and electricity is not in the best interest of the University at this time. This is the only building not under the University contract with People's Energy and Com Ed because until last year, there were non-UIC units renting space in this building and paying their own utility bills. If new space lease agreements are entered into, the utility costs to the University will decrease.
