Vendor: M.A.T. Leasing, Inc.
Change Order Amount: $150,000
The purpose of this announcement is to modify the contract amount estimated at the beginning of the term. The University awarded a bid for Snow Removal Services beginning on October 15, 2011 for a period of two years in the estimated amount of $725,400, and subsequently renewed for a period of three years. The original estimate was based on historical expenditures. Actual expenditures are never 100% predictable because they vary as a function of estimated data and information that may change over time. Actual expenditures for the fiscal year 2014 have increased due to the increased need at the University of Illinois at Chicago. This change order increases the estimated amount by $150,000 to $523,581 to represent the FY14 actual spend through the end of the renewal term. The estimated amount of a potential renewal is being adjusted accordingly.
The State Purchasing Officer for this procurement is now Gary Reis.
The University award process may be delayed up to thirty days as this award goes through a state approval process.
