Cross Country Staffing will provide nurse staffing for the University of Illinois Hospital.
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 hospital has used Cross Country Staffing for the past eight months under cooperative purchase 197IDM. This request reflects Vizient?s extension of SV0912 to July 31, 2020. We have a process and system in place as well as contracted nursing staff on-site.
