Due to a variety of legal:issties, the university was not abl to lward the contract to Xerox nti I cou le
of dlays before'itwas to'take effect. Given the timing qf the award coupled with the-fact that all ,
photocopiers are new and are being manufactured to, meet the libraries' specifications, it Nvas impossible
for ~ ~~ Xe obig all 80+. machines at once. As a result, Xerox p0rovided the Ijibraries with a nuiitnurnu
number of machines and free copies (at their own expense) until: additional equipment could be installed.
We 'expect to have alt aspects of the new photocopy and pirintifrig contract operational Oy the end of June.
To hialp meet the needs of tie libramyies and patrons, to process dpepartiliental putrchaise oirderspxand to'
