First published Tuesday, October 11, 2022
The University awarded a contract for an Entertainer for Outdoor Student Concert.
This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which the opportunity to obtain an entertainment performance was available for a limited time.
Upon the selection process for the university's outdoor student concert, this entertainer was selected by the students. An offer was made to Partynextdoor (PND) on September 13, 2022. PNDs team accepted and provided a contract on September 21, 2022. PND's contract needed to be revised for the event location. CSI (Center for Student Involvement) submitted the contract on September 22,2022 and the University requested the vendor information form to be completed by the artist, which is contracted through vendor Partyomo Touring LLC. We received the vendor form on September 23, 2022. There was an issue with the vendor number, which delayed having the entertainer added in iBuy until October 3,2022. A requisition was created on October 7,2022 at 5:53p.m. and the purchase order was approved October 8,2022 at 7:03a.m. PND required payment/PO by Saturday, October 8, 2022.
