The University awarded a contract for photo etched custom screens.
Photo etched high precision custom brass screens for fiber alignment in calorimeters. The screens are an essential component of the Department of Energy funded sPHENIX project at the Brookhaven National Laboratory. The block manufacturing project requires a large quantity of precisely etched mechanical metal screens as a key tooling component of the block assembly of the detector.
This purchase is exempt from the usual selection processes of the Procurement Code because the procurement expenditure is for performing sponsored research and other sponsored activities under grants and contracts funded by the sponsor or by sources other than State appropriations. (30 ILCS 500 / 1-13(b)(8)) Tech-Etch Inc. is mandated by the funding source for the fabrication of the custom screens.
