First published Friday, November 6, 2020
The University awarded a contract for disposable medical supplies.
Bard Access Systems, Incorporated will provide disposable medical supplies such as peripherally-inserted central catheter and midlines. These supplies are devices, such as ports, that are used to draw blood and give treatments, including intravenous fluids, blood transfusions, or drugs such as chemotherapy and antibiotics. The port is placed under the skin, usually in the right side of the chest of the patient.
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)) In order to provide a wide range of care to patients at UI Health and these supplies are required to do so. Without them, patients would have to seek care elsewhere and would result in a loss of revenue to the Hospital.
