Classroom and Research Maintenance Waiver

COMMODITY: Maintenance, Repair, and Repair Parts for Classroom, Research, and Other Facility Equipment

Governor's approval has been received to waive sealed bid procedures for maintenance and repair service for classroom, research, and miscellaneous facility equipment that is provided by a sole source and therefore cannot be put out for bid. The waiver mainly applies to maintenance on computer and medical equipment but also includes maintenance on some specialized high technology equipment for office, classroom, and laboratory use.

This waiver is used only after confirming that 1) the vendor is a true sole source and the original manufacturer of the equipment, and 2) the repair and/or maintenance is needed to keep a classrooms, research facility or building up and running. 

Please reference the Governor's approval case number on all purchasing documents and send a copy to the UW System Office of Procurement.
