Deloitte & Touche
an estimated $220,000.
Through a competitive selection procedure in Fiscal Year 2001, Deloitte & Touche, LLP was retained to develop a customized screening, assessment, marketing, and licensing process for the Urbana-Champaign Office of Technology Management (OTM). In this engagement, Deloitte & Touche assembled unique professional skills and gained significant and unique insight into the University?s technology management system on the Urbana-Champaign campus.
In March of 2003, OTM identified the need for administrative improvement, cost avoidance, and/or an increase in efficiency and as such, the Technology Management Administration Subcommittee called for common systems on the Chicago and the Urbana-Champaign campus to screen, assess, market, and license University technology and intellectual property.
To implement the common systems recommendation requires that the system in place on the Urbana-Champaign campus be installed, with appropriate customization, on the Chicago campus. Deloitte & Touche stand alone among possible consultants in their ability to efficiently and quickly install the system they developed for the Urbana-Champaign campus on the Chicago campus and insure compatibility and continuity. They have the requisite very specialized understanding of the Urbana-Champaign technology management system needed to install (with appropriate customization) this system on the Chicago campus.
