The University awarded a contract for Auditing Services.
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: Western Illinois University previously bid out these services under R086943 and had only one responsive bid. The price was too high so the proposal was non awarded. Therefore it is in the best interest of the University to award this as a small P&A contract to Eck Schafer and Punke.
This contract was issued for WQPT auditing services for the 6/30/18 fiscal year, as well as attestation for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. The responsible decision makers are Mary Pruess, Director of WQPT, and Dawn Schmitt, Administrative Assistant.
