This purchase is exempt from the usual selection processes of the Procurement Code because the procurement expenditure is for medical supplies or medical at a university-operated health care center or dispensary that provides care, treatment, and medications for students, faculty and staff (30 ILCS 500 / 1-13(b-5)) Stryker Sales Corporation's Synchro2 Guidewire system has to do with direct patient treatment and care. Without access to these specific supplies the Hospital would not be able to offer patient care, that in turn would drive patients else where and result in a loss of revenue to the Hospital.
