University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Announcement of a Sole Source Purchase
Vendor: Charles River Laboratories Inc, Wilmington, MA
Amount: An estimated $250,000
An estimated start date of 7/1/2012 through 6/30/2013, 12 months
State Purchasing Officer - Shirley Webb
We are requesting this modification to the total amount based on the past history spend and the fact we can never be entirely sure of the amount that we will be required to purchase from each vendor for the researchers. Also, the University expects the spend with each of these vendors to increase given the phase various research projects are entering.
The University award process may be delayed up to thirty days as this award goes through a state approval process.
The estimated amount has been modified.
