The Southern Illinois University Board of Trustees has approved annual contracts for food and food service products for dining dervices, electrical supplies and printing services at the Edwardsville campus.
The board approved a continuing contract with Gordon Food Service at an estimated cost of $3 million per year, but the actual cost will depend upon university usage. The contract is for a 12-month period beginning with the current fiscal year, and the university reserves the option to renew the deal for up to nine additional years. The project will be funded from Morris University Center Operations and Maintenance.
The board also approved two standard contracts beginning with the current fiscal year for the purchase of electrical supplies by Facilities Management to make routine repairs. The university reserves the right to renew the contracts with Frost Electric, of Collinsville, at approximately $125,000 annually, and Springfield Electric, of Springfield, at approximately $50,000 annually for up to four additional years with an estimated five-year expense of $875,000.
University operating funds and departmental auxiliary funds will provide the funding.
