The University awarded a contract for soft drinks and related beverages.
This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which immediate action was needed to prevent any disruption in University services.
This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which immediate action was needed to prevent any disruption in University services. This emergency expenditure is for soft drinks for students, faculty, staff and visitors to the University. The State of Illinois issued an RFP in FY07 for a Soft Drink Prime Vendor contract for the State commencing in FY08. State has requested that the University participate in the Prime Vendor contract once it is awarded. The RFP evaluation process took longer than anticipated putting the State behind schedule in final decision to select Pepsi Cola as their Prime Vendor.

As a result, this has put the University in the position of a potential disruption of services to our students, faculty, staff and visitors. In order to avoid a disruption in services to the nearly 8,000 students eating in our residential dining halls each day, as well as the guests at our athletic stadium and Assembly Hall theatrical and athletic events, the University had to find a soft drink vendor who could meet our needs immediately. Since the University was just ending a Prime Vendor relationship with Coca Cola, they still had the delivery personnel and equipment available to meet our immediate needs. Coca Cola was willing to enter into a short term contract through June 30, 2009, while we finalize the contract with Pepsi Cola and avoid the disruption in services to the University. The costs are considered reasonable and acceptable.
