The Board of Governors Executive Committee will meet Wednesday afternoon.
The committee will vote on a resolution to award a $2.7 million contract to John Adams Construction Company for the welding lab renovation at the Broadway Building on the West Plains campus. In addition to submitting the lowest and best bid, John Adams Construction Company is a local general contractor based out of West Plains.
We are excited to partner with a local company to complete this transformative project for the university and the West Plains community.
The committee will also vote on two resolutions for projects on the Springfield campus. The first resolution awards a contract to MTS Contracting, Inc. for repairs to the exterior of Woods House and Wells House on the Springfield campus.
The second resolution hires Clark Huesemann LC as the consultant for infill work at the Roy Blunt Jordan Valley Innovation Center Brewer Science Innovation Annex.
Finally, the committee will vote on two critical procurement contracts.
The first is a contract for reinsurance — or stop loss coverage — for the university’s employee group medical plan.
The second is a contract to purchase $2.3 million in equipment needed to expand capacity of the district chilled water system to more reliably serve the campus and allow for the connection of Kampeter Hall to the system.

We are over halfway through November. That means you only have two weeks left to complete open enrollment for your employee benefits.
Open enrollment is the annual period during which you can elect, decline or make changes to your medical, dental, vision and cafeteria/flexible spending plans for the coming calendar year.
The open enrollment deadline is Dec. 1.

You also only have two weeks left to save up to $360 on your annual health insurance premiums.
This year’s wellness incentive includes the following vaccination combination:

Both vaccinations must be completed prior to Dec. 1 to qualify.
Employees who did not complete their vaccination at Magers Health and Wellness Center must contact Magers to submit their vaccination information before Dec. 1 to qualify for the discount.
Thanksgiving break next week
We will not publish Inside Missouri State next week due to the Thanksgiving holiday.
I hope you take a well-deserved break and find time to relax and recharge before we march forward to the end of the fall semester.
Thanks for all you do for Missouri State!
