The University awarded a contract for COVID-19 Disinfection and Cleaning.
This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which public health or safety was threatened.
This vendor was selected because our current vendor does not have enough available staff to supplement environmental cleaning/sanitation/disinfection of east and west campus buildings needed for COVID-19 pandemic-level cleaning for reopening and return to campus for the academic year. In addition, Facilities Management added a third shift to maintain the buildings due the increased need for such deep cleaning and offset the impact of a strike by building service workers staff.
