The University awarded a contract for nitrile gloves.
Body Armor Outlet, LLC provides examination medical gloves. Medical gloves are examples of personal protective equipment (PPE) that are used to protect the wearer and/or the patient from the spread of infection or illness during medical procedures and examinations. Medical gloves are one part of an infection-control strategy known as PPE.
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)) Body Armor Outlet, LLC has to do with direct patient treatment and care. Without access to these medical gloves the Hospital would not be able to offer patient care or protection that would drive patients elsewhere and result in a loss of revenue to the Hospital.
