This purchase is exempt from the usual selection processes of the Procurement Code because the procurement expenditure is for athletic, artistic or musical services, performances, events, or productions by or for a public institution of higher education. (30 ILCS 500 / 1-13(b)(4)) This purchase will allow the UIC CSI to hold an event that is shared by the large, diverse student body. H.E.R. is a popular artist at the moment (she had the number one selling R&B album for the past couple of weeks) and selecting H.E.R. affords UIC its first ever female headliner for this event.
