On motion of Dr. Smith, seconded by Mr. Thompson, it was voted to approve all Oakland University Items.

Communication from Mr. May:

A letter has been received from Mr. Varner advising that only one bid was received for bleachers for the west half of the gymnasium in the Intramural Building. This bid in the amount of $23,980 from the McFadden Corporation is higher that the original estimate, but is believed to be a fair price for the equipment specified.

The Laich Equipment Company originally drew plans, but later advised that their equipment had not been tested sufficiently for them to bid on this particular installation. The Michigan School Service also drew bids, but found that their equipment would not fit into the space in the Intramural Building without alterations. They, therefore, decided not to bid, but have indicated that their price would have been $24,860.

It is recommended that the Trustees authorize the contract with the McFadden Corporation in the amount of $23,980, and that the cost of the installation be charged against Oakland University's Reserve for Student Services Facilities.

On motion by Mr. Merriman, seconded by Mr. Nisbet, it was voted to approve the above recommendation. (p.281)
