The University awarded a contract for prescription drugs.
Procurement of 340B prescription drugs for the treatment of eligible HIV/AIDS patients at UI Health Community Clinic Network (UCCN) clinics.
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)) Procurement of 340B drugs will allow UCCN to supplement current Ryan White funding and stretch scarce federal resources as far as possible by providing comprehensive services to vulnerable HIV/AIDS patients in under-served communities.
