West Virginia University’s attorney says the university has suspended its Request for Proposals process in the granting of third-tier media rights to IMG College.
WVU General Counsel Bill Hutchens sent a letter to Morgantown businessman John Raese Tuesday saying the university has received Raese’s letters and is looking into his concerns about the process.
“West Virginia University is considering your communication as a complaint or protest regarding procurement activities,” Hutchens wrote.
Hutchins later wrote.
“During review, WVU is suspending the current RFP process in Request for Proposals.”
Raese, the owner of West Virginia Radio Corp. which has distributed Mountaineer football and basketball broadcasts for decades, wrote letters expressing concern about how the third-tier rights were being bid out and the relationship between WVU Board of Governors Chairman Drew Payne, IMG and West Virginia Media, which has also been part of the negotiations.
