The University awarded a contract for clinic cabinetry from Pelton & Crane.
This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which immediate action was needed to prevent any disruption in University services.
This emergency purchase is for the purchase of clinic cabinetry from Pelton & Crane Inc. Renovation construction/re-equipping projects are currently in progress, with the demolition of the clinics and removal of the old clinic equipment already completed. The College of Dentistry must now complete the construction and install new equipment to make the clinics functional by January 6, 2014 so as not to interrupt student learning and patient care operations. The clinics generate $ 55,000 in net clinic revenue daily and make up 30% of the College’s budget. Furthermore, the College is currently undergoing a reaccreditation site visit by the Commission on Dental Accreditation. Adequate clinical facilities are a critical accreditation standard.

The concern over accreditation status combined with the loss of clinical revenue and service to a large Medicaid population has led the University to approve this emergency request.
