When the Procurement Act is no good

This commentary in the Cavalier Daily says that notwithstanding the preferences of two-thirds of the students voting in a referendum last year, the dining facilities at the University of Virginia sell Pepsi and not Coke because Pepsi was the low bidder and the University is bound by the provisions of the Procurement Act, "to award contracts to the firm that provides the best overall offer."

Now, that's horrible.
