The University awarded a contract for thirty-eight 16-gigabyte memory cards.

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign awarded a contract for thirty-eight 16-gigabyte memory cards in the amount of $199,960 on Wednesday, December 28, 2005 . This transaction is for the emergency quick purchase to upgrade a Silicon Graphics Inc. (SGI) Altix graphics computer system. Due to an end-of-year inventory reduction, James River Technical, the authorized dealer for SGI equipment, offered an additional discount of 75% from the standard discounted price for these system memory cards. This limited time special pricing resulted in an additional savings of $595,840 from the typical discounted price. The special pricing available on this purchase of memory was only available through December 28, 2005 and the purchase of memory at this special is consistent with good business judgment. This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which items available on the spot market or at discounted prices were available for a limited time such that sound business judgement mandated a purchase immediately to take advantage of the availability and price.
