The University awarded a contract for transplant consulting services.
This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which immediate action was needed to prevent any disruption in University services.
The University of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences System (UIHHSS) operates a Transplant Program that is regulated by HHS Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). The authority to operate the Transplant Program will be revoked by CMS on February 23, 2015 unless the regulatory entity (CMS) has granted a provisional operational authority extension until February 9, 2016. The CMS decision to extend the operating term of the Transplant Program beyond February 23, 2015 is conditional upon a contract with an independent transplant consultant team to work onsite at the Hospital to provide technical guidance, professional insight, training, and feedback on an ongoing basis. The transplant consultant team must be approved by CMS by March 4, 2015. The CMS Systems Improvement Agreement contains several mandates including: consultant qualifications; consultant time; consultant contract requirements and must be executed by February 23, 2015. Additional items of compliance are specified in the Systems Improvement Agreement.

Consequently, a contract for technical consulting is required in order to continue operation of the Hospital´┐Ż??s Transplant Program. Thus, State services that affect Chicagoland health would be disrupted.
