This change in policy will be very beneficial for faculty research, which sometimes requires engaging in unique contracts for specific archival, translation, subvention, consultation, editorial and other services that do not exceed the new amount but by their nature are not appropriate to a competitive bidding situation as they are not commercial services on a commercial marketplace nor are they "regular" university business of the kind that procurement rules usually cover. This increase in amount will no doubt expedite collaboration and productivity, which is good for the university as a research-generating entity.
