Communication from Mr. May:

On June 13 the following bids were received at Oakland University for the purchase of a 100,000,000 BTU boiler:

  Pearce Boiler and Engineering Company
$106,841
  International Boiler Works Company
155,000
  Combustion Engineering, Inc.
213,132

Examination of the bids by Commonwealth Associates, Inc., the Oakland staff, and the State Building Division reveals that the Pearce Boiler and Engineering Company bid did not meet specifications and should not be considered for the award of a contract. It is therefore recommended that the Trustees approve the award of a contract to the International Boiler Works Company in the amount of $155,000. This work is being financed by a state appropriation. Therefore prior to signing a contract, it will be necessary to obtain a release of the state funds through the State Building Division. No trouble is anticipated in obtaining state approval since they have concurred in the award of contracts.

Communication from Mr. May:

On June 30 bid proposals were received and opened at Oakland University for-a Health Center, as follows:

  Architectural

It is recommended that contracts be awarded to the low bidders with the understanding that deduct items, which have been negotiated with the low bidders, will reduce the contract by approximately $38,630.

The following project budget is recommended:

$607,481
