The University awarded a contract for Volumetric Time Resolved Velocimetry System.
This device specifically measures the velocity of the particles in the system and tracks the particles in the flow.
This purchase is exempt from the usual selection processes of the Procurement Code because the procurement expenditure is for performing sponsored research and other sponsored activities under grants and contracts funded by the sponsor or by sources other than State appropriations. (30 ILCS 500 / 1-13(b)(8)) This device will greatly help to develop assistive methods and continue research in our main areas of expertise without any delay. If we build the system in-house, it will take longer and will cost more.
