First published Wednesday, October 5, 2022
The University awarded a contract for electrodes used on patients for testing.
Electrodes used on patients for testing.
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)) These electrodes are used by our Neurology EEG department. Without out these specific electrodes, EEG could not perform the proper testing of their patients. If we can't perform the test, the patients would have to get the testing elsewhere. This would result in lost revenue for the Hospital.
