The University awarded a contract for decontamination systems.
This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which public health or safety was threatened.
The vendor will provide six (6) full decontamination systems. The AeroClave room decontamination system includes the portable applicator, hand sprayer, remote head tripod, vital oxide disinfectant solution, data logging software with technical and equipment support.
Creative Bus Sales was selected because they were the only source available that had the ability to procure the systems with a less than 6 month lead time. We need the decontamination systems before the fall semester. This Emergency request is part of our response measures to the COVID-19 crisis, and the vehicle decontamination systems selected will aid us in our recovery process by mitigating risk of COVID-19 as we re-establish transit operations back to campus. The systems are effective and more efficient than the manual applications of chemical disinfectants.
