The University awarded a contract for specialized underground pipeline system .
This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which immediate action was needed to prevent any disruption in University services.
On January 22, 2014 an emergency purchase was declared (JCM279) with Anchor Mechanical in the estimated amount of $ 250,000 to repair/replace an underground ruptured pipeline. After excavation and some testing it was determined that Anchor Mechanical could not supply the required high pressure pipeline system. The Utilities Department contacted the only local vendor capable of supplying the pipeline system, Rovanco Piping Systems Inc. in Joliet, Illinois. The quote for the pipeline system is in the estimated amount of $ 67,000.

The particularly severe winter and stress analysis of other parts of the pipeline system may determine that other emergency expenditures may be necessary. These will be reported as appropriate
