The University awarded a contract for Architect/Engineer to complete A/E services to Frega Associates, Chicago, IL, for an amount not to exceed $85,550.
This architect/Engineer's services are needed to complete their remaining architectural/engineering services (including copyrighted documents) previously started by this vendor for the Douglas Hall Roof and Building Envelope construction project. The services of this vendor were initially contracted with the University for $365,000 and are needed to satisfy the remaining balance of $85,550.
The University has determined that this purchase is only economically available from this source because the item or service is copyrighted or patented and is not available except from the holder of the copyright or patent. Another vendor could not economically perform the work at the same cost or in the same time with the same continuity due to the current work done by this vendor. The work also requires the manipulation and interpretation of existing intellectual property of copyrighted documents belonging to this vendor.
