The University awarded a contract for gmynastic equipment rental.
This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which immediate action was needed to prevent any disruption in University services.
A series of Intercollegiate Athletic gymnastic meets are scheduled with the first occurring Friday, January 9, 2015. This athletic event needed to be relocated, and equipment rented, due to the unavailability of the Physical Education Building while it is undergoing indoor turf field renovation. Consequently, an emergency purchase was deemed needed to prevent disruption of these Intercollegiate event commitments. The gymnastic equipment rental and the event hosting was moved to the UIC Pavilion.

The vendor selection was based upon previous relationship with Midwest Gym Supply. They are backed by more than 30 years of unsurpassed product and customer service. Midwest Gym Supply offers the most extensive line of gymnastics equipment, custom padding and installation east of the Mississippi. Their warehouses boast the largest stock of gymnastics equipment in the country. They provide the items we need for the Pavilion including CAD gym layout and design, competition and special event equipment leasing and expert installation.
