The University awarded a contract for Xerox Copier Maintenance to Xerox, Springfield, IL, for an estimated $170,000.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the
compatibility of equipment, accessories, replacement parts, or service is a paramount consideration.
The Champaign-Urbana campus photocopiers have been purchased on a continuous basis since July 1, 1998. The requirement for maintenance of these University owned photocopiers is being handled as a sole source since Xerox is the only vendor that will provide the terms that were agreed to at the time of the purchase. These include but are not limited to: authorized dealer for the equipment serviced; "like for like" replacement; local customer service; guaranteed maintenance availability for repair service; labor; guaranteed response time; compliance with the University's billing requirements, original manufacturer's parts, drums, and supplies (except paper); travel charges; pricing format for base number of copies; and overage charges; and compatibility of replacement parts.
