An Agreement between the Division of Student Affairs and ASUCDConcerning the US Bank Proposed Corporate PartnershipAnd Related Corporate Sponsorship Activity
The university, through its division of Student Affairs, has endeavored to create amulti-dimensional partnership between itself and US Bank, as a means of securing financial revenues for the campus (and student services specifically) ina manner which is philosophically and operationally viable. This effort began in2005 with the creation of a Request-For-Proposal (RFP), conducted through theuniversity’s Business Contracts office. The RFP invited multiple banking partnersto submit a proposal for financial services on the campus. From that competitiveprocess, US Bank was selected as the most viable potential partner and contractnegotiations and consultations have been on-going since that time. Theseconsultations have included oversight and approval by the university’sCommercial Activities Group, and active involvement by the Campus Unions andRecreation Board (CURB), a student-majority committee with oversight of thestudent unions and related services, as well as the President’s Office of ASUCD.The principal elements of the partnership include:
The creation of a branch bank in the Memorial Union;
A preferred placement of ATM machines on campus (though other banksand credit unions will also continue to be present on the campus);
Advertisements and signage featuring US Bank as a sponsor at selectedfacilities and events; and
Placement of the US Bank mark on student and employee identificationcards, with capacity for use of the card (at the user’s sole choice) as adebit card.In exchange for these sponsorship benefits, the university will receive aminimum, guaranteed annual payment of $176,000 each year, for a period of tenyears. The annual payment has the ability to escalate over the term of theagreement, based upon the number of banking account activations that occur.The financial and operational terms of the partnership, including both thelimitations on the bank’s activities and the university’s ability and discretion inmanaging the agreement, are delineated in the contract.
