The University awarded a contract for Peritoneal Dialysis Supplies.
Baxter Health provides Peritoneal Dialysis Supplies which are used in patient dialysis.
This purchase is exempt from the usual selection processes of the Procurement Code because the procurement expenditure is for medical supplies or medical services necessary for the delivery of care and treatment at medical, dental, or veterinary teaching facilities utilized by SIU or U of I (30 ILCS 500 / 1-13(b-5)) The supplies provided by Baxter Health have to do with direct patient care. Without access to supplies, the hospital would not be able to offer dialysis services to patients, which in term would drive patients elsewhere and a loss in revenue to the hospital.
