The University awarded a contract for serology testing reagents and controls.

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)) This will allow the Laboratories to perform COVID-19 serology testing on a large scale to test members of the community.
