ANTITRUST LITIGATION

(10) On June 3, 1969, suit was filed on behalf of the University in the Federal District Court for the Northern District of Illinois (Case No. 69 C 1188) against certain manufacturers of enameled cast iron plumbing fixtures and vitreous china plumbing fixtures who were involved in previous federal antitrust prosecutions.

Other purchasers of such plumbing fixtures had initiated litigation against the manufacturers in various parts of the country and all of the litigation was transferred to the Federal District Court in Philadelphia, where the University's case was assigned Civil Action No. 69-1621.

Settlement negotiations have been proceeding between the manufacturers and the various plaintiffs. As a result of such negotiations the manufacturers have indicated a willingness to pay approximately 7 per cent of the cost of fixtures purchased between October 1, 1962, through September 30, 1966. Acceptance of the settlement would result in the payment to the University of approximately $3,500.

The Vice President for Financial Affairs and the University Counsel are of the opinion that the proposed settlement is reasonable and recommend it be approved and authorized by the Board. They further recommend that the Comptroller and the Secretary be authorized to execute and deliver such documents and papers as may be necessary and desirable to effectuate the settlement.





I concur.

On motion of Mr. Swain, these recommendations were approved and authority was given as recommended.

EMPLOYMENT OF ENGINEERS FOR IMPROVEMENTS

T O ABBOTT POWER PLANT, URBANA

(11) The President of the University, with the concurrence of appropriate administrative officers, recommends, subject to the release of funds, the employment of Sargent & Lundy, Chicago, for complete engineering services for the design of a new chimney for the Abbott Power Plant at the Urbana campus at a fee based upon the actual cost of engineering and drafting personnel plus 110 per cent and field supervision at actual salary plus 45 per cent plus expenses authorized by the University.

Funds are available in state capital appropriations to the University, subject to release by the Governor.

On motion of Mr. Pogue, this recommendation was approved by the following vote: Aye, Mr. Forsyth, Mr. Howard, Mr. Hughes, Mr. Neal, Mr. Pogue, Mr. Steger, Mr. Swain; no, none; absent, Dr. Bakalis, Governor Ogilvie. Mr. Hahn asked to be recorded as not voting.

C H A N G E ORDER C O M P U T I N G SERVICES DATA PROCESSING

EQUIPMENT, CHICAGO CIRCUE

(12) The President, with the concurrence of appropriate administrative officers, recommends a change order in the existing IBM lease agreement to permit the lease-purchase of certain peripheral computer equipment at the Chicago Circle campus.

The Computer Center is presently leasing a 370/1SS computing system from the IBM Corporation which was installed on September 27, 1971, to replace thenexisting data processing equipment and to meet the computer requirements of the campus. Because of the rapid changes in computer technology and to maintain the most suitable equipment for the Computer Center, commensurate with the needs and funds available, it has been to this date advantageous to lease such equipment.

A current review of the cost of leasing as compared to that of a lease-purchase arrangement has been made, and it has been determined to be to the University's advantage to lease-purchase selected peripheral devices which have accumulated an advantageous purchase credit. These consist of high-speed printers and tape drives and their respective control units. Lease-purchase procurement of these selected peripheral devices will result in substantial savings to the University over the period of the proposed five-year lease-purchase plan as delineated below. The anticipated useful life of the components to be acquired is expected to exceed the payout period.

It is to the advantage of the University to continue to lease the rest of the peripheral equipment as well as the Central Processor and Memory because of the rapidly changing technology, capacity requirements, and short operational life characteristics.

Negotiations with the IBM Corporation have resulted in a proposal for a change order in our existing lease agreements whereby selected peripheral devices would be operated on a lease-purchase basis — with allowances for past rental payments and educational discounts.

Therefore, it is recommended that a change order be authorized effective October 1, 1972, to (1) cancel the present lease payments for the selected peripheral devices, (2) make a payment of $5,976.35 on October 23, 1972, and the first payment of $16,672.03 on November 1, 1972, and (3) make five additional annual payments, subject to availability of funds, for a grand total of $129,326.70. Upon completion of these payments, full title to the equipment will vest with The Board of Trustees of the University of Illinois. In addition, maintenance services currently at the annual rate of $8,670 will continue to be purchased from the IBM Corporation.

Funds are available for the down payment of $5,976.35 and the first payment of $16,672.03 from institutional funds in the operating budget of the Computer Center. It is contemplated that funds for the subsequent annual lease-purchase payments will be available in the operating budget of the Computer Center.

The change order agreement will include a provision that all payments be subject to availability of funds and in accordance with existing statutory requirements pertaining to lease-purchase of automatic data processing equipment.

This action will result in an estimated saving of $7,758 during the current fiscal year and a total savings of $103,790 over the five-year period, in comparison with the cost of continuing the present leasing arrangement.

O n motion of M r. Swain, this recommendation was approved by the following vote: Aye, M r. Forsyth, M r. H a h n, Mr. H o w a r d, M r.

H u g h e s, M r. Neal, M r. Pogue, M r. Steger, M r. Swain; no, n o n e ; absent, Dr. Bakalis, Governor Ogilvie.

C H A N G E ORDER C O M P U T I N G SERVICES DATA

PROCESSING EQUIPMENT, URBANA

(13) The usage of computers for administrative purposes has grown rapidly over the past several years. It is necessary to consolidate Administrative Data Processing's computing installations to broaden the range of applications, increase productivity, and improve versatility while avoiding the cost of expanding these facilities separately.

This consolidation involves replacing the three existing administrative computers with one large, central facility and appropriate job-entry terminals to accomplish the administrative computing function. The systems to be displaced are:

1972] 99

UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS

1. The IBM 360/50 at Urbana

2. The IBM 360/50 at Chicago Circle

3. The IBM 360/40 at the Medical Center The first phase of the long-range plan is to lease an IBM 370/155 computing system to be located at a central facility at Urbana.

The step indicated above is the first phase of a plan which will ultimately require the disposal of the University-owned equipment (360/50 main frame units located at the Urbana-Champaign and Chicago Circle campuses) and the return to the IBM Corporation of currently leased equipment located at the Medical Center and certain peripheral equipment located on the three campuses. This will be accomplished on a scheduled basis as new equipment is available and existing equipment released on a schedule which will permit maintenance of vital and continuing administrative data programs during the transition period.

The disposal plan for the University-owned equipment located at the UrbanaChampaign campus and at the Chicago Circle campus has not been fully developed at this point. However, all disposals for value will be made consistent with current University regulations and applicable state statutes.

Funds are available in the operating budget of the Computer Center. It is contemplated that funds for the subsequent annual lease payments will be available in the operating budget of the Computer Center.

The change order agreement will include a provision that all payments be subject to availability of funds and in accordance with existing statutory requirements pertaining to lease of automatic data processing equipment.

This transaction is considered exempt from provisions of the Illinois Purchasing Act as special business equipment economically procurable from only one source.

The President of the University, with the concurrence of the Vice President for Planning and Allocation and the Vice President for Financial Affairs, recommends that the Comptroller and the Secretary of the Board of Trustees be authorized to modify the lease agreements with the IBM Corporation and to execute such contracts and change orders or other appropriate documents as may be necessary to lease the new IBM 370/155 computer system at a rate of $39,372.30 per month, or $472,467.60 annually, $314,978.40 to be expended during FY 1972-73.

On motion of Mr. Swain, this recommendation was approved and authority was given as recommended by the following vote: Aye, Mr.

Forsyth, Mr. Hahn, Mr. Howard, Mr. Hughes, Mr. Neal, Mr. Pogue, Mr. Steger, Mr. Swain; no, none; absent, Dr. Bakalis, Governor Ogilvie.

PURCHASES (14) The President submitted, with his concurrence, a list of purchases recommended by the Directors of Purchases and the Vice President for Financial Affairs; also purchases authorized by the President.

The list of purchases was presented in two categories: purchases from appropriated funds (i.e., from state appropriations to the University) and purchases from institutional funds. The latter term designates funds received by the University under contracts with the United States government, contracts with private corporations and other organizations, funds from foundation grants, and grants from corporations and other donors, and University revolving funds authorized by law.

The total amounts of these purchases were:
