This Professional and Artistic notice is published in accordance with 30 ILCS 500/35-35 and 44 ILL. Admin. Code 4.2035(e) which allows professional and artistic contracts under $100,000 to be made in accordance with 30 ILCS 500/35-30(f) and 44 ILL. Admin. Code 4.2020 (Small Purchases). The reason this purchase is exempt from the procurement code is as follows: The responsible decision maker is Rhonda Kirts, Associate Dean of Students. The contract number is CN-00036852. According to the best threat assessment and management practices, forensic evaluations (or comprehensive violence risk assessments) of students should be conducted by certified professionals not affiliated with the university requesting them. Therefore, we concluded that an outside specialist was the most appropriate option in this case. Additionally, the need for such evaluations is based on a concern for the safety of the campus community and is, as such, immediate.
