The University awarded a contract for Two 2016 GMC Yukons for the University of Illinois to GM City Rice Motor Company, Carmi, IL, for $130,370.
Two identical large sport utility vehicles -2016 GMC Yukon XL K. NCAA rules have recently changed for golf team travel and the entire squad can now travel to tournaments. These vehicles will be used to drive the team to tournaments up to six or seven hours away and therefore the comfort and size factors are essential. When traveling with eight players and two coaches, each vehicle would need the capacity to hold up to five people, five sets of golf clubs, five suitcases, a team equipment bag, plus backpacks.
The University has determined that this purchase is only economically available from this source because the vehicles are a gift to the University of Illinois Men's Golf Program
