|The Department of Natural Resources is giving notice of a change order to the contract with Ozark Koala Ecosystem Services for Lower Cache River Swamp Restoration. The Agency requires this change order as defined in 30 ILCS 500/1-15.12 and 720 ILCS 5/33E-9 to extend the termination date twelve months to allow additional time for the Vendor to complete the work. |
The initial procurement was a small purchase. The contract costs remain the same and therefore, the contract remains under the small purchase threshold. This change order extends the termination date from December 31, 2017 to December 31, 2018.
This is change order #2. Change order #1 extended the end date 18 months due to the budget impasse. Funding was identified in FY18 for this project, but more time is needed to complete remaining work.
The circumstances were unforeseeable at the time the contract was executed and the change is germane to the original contract.
