The University awarded a contract for Transplant Management Group consulting.
This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which immediate action was needed to prevent any disruption in University services.
Transplant Management Group consulting services are needed for the University of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences System (UIHHSS) operates an Adult Liver Transplant Program. On February 27, 2015, CMS conducted an off-site Medicare survey of the Adult Liver Transplant Program and served notice that the Adult Liver Transplant Program does not meet the requirements for participation in the Medicare Organ Transplant Program for the Adult Liver (ALI) program and is out of compliance. Further, CMS mandated a Plan of Correction be completed within 10 days of receipt of the notice.

Consequently, a contract for technical consulting is required to provide guidance on a viable improvement plan within the required timeline. Thus, an emergency was declared to prevent State services that affect Chicagoland health from being disrupted.
