Regents approve new
hospital bidding policy

By BILL SPINDLE
The University Regents yesterday
approved a policy which will allow the
Replacement Hospital Project to favor
"in-state" firms when awarding con-
struction contracts.
While contracts currently under con-
sideration will still fall under the old
policy of awarding the contract to the
lowest bidder, all upcoming awards will
be decided under the new-policy.
The new preferential bidding policy,
proposed by Regent Thomas Roach (D-
Detroit) consists of the following
resolutions which favor Michigan fir-
ms:
" When bids from companies are
equal, preference will be given to the
firm whose supplies are manufactured,
produced, or assembled within the
state.
s Several other states provide
preferential bidding policies to protect
their contractors. If a contractor from a

state with such a policy competes with
a Michigan firm, the Michigan firm will
be favored to the extent the former firm
is favored in its home state.
The policy defines a resident bidder
as a person, firm, or corporation who is
authorized to do business in the state at
the time a contract is first advertised
for bidding.
The policy will extend for only two
years and it will be limited to the
Replacement Hospital Project.
ROACH SAID the decision was made
to help state firms because "Michigan
is , presently suffering the highest
unemployment rate in the nation
and . . . the Replacement Hospital
Project is one of the few major con-
struction projects underway in the
state."
Richard Brunvand, executive direc-
tor of the Washtenaw Contractors
Association, said he thought the new

theaters, both members of the chain,
were forced to . stop charging dollar
admission on Tuesdays because of
"contractual problems," according to
Milt Daly, United Artists vice

president. Daly, however, saidL the
policy would be reinstituted as soon as
possible.
A manager at Briarwood, who asked
to remain anonymous, said the decision
was made for financial reasons, but ad-
ded that bargain nights do not erode
theater profits.
"Ithink the decision was a terrible
one," the manager said. "I used to take
advantage of dollar nights all the time.
I hardly go to first-run movies
