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 operating room hallways are cluttered with mobile equipment, making it difficult to transport patients in and out of surgery. These sinks will allow more space for mobile equipment by 33%. The scrub sinks are critical to maintaining a sterile environment in the operating rooms to ensure patient safety.
