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)) Medtronic USA implants and supplies have to do with direct patient care. Without access to supplies, the hospital would not be able to offer surgical procedures and care, which in turn would drive patients elsewhere and result in a loss of revenue to the hospital.
