The University awarded a contract for sterilization of surgical trays & implant devices.
This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which immediate action was needed to prevent any disruption in University services.
For many years the Hospital utilizes a Novation/Vizient vendor for sterilization of surgical trays and implantable devices. On average the sterilization process takes around six hours for surgical trays and up to eight hours for implantable. The sterilization process consists of on-site vendor staff that perform cleaning, steaming, organizing and wrapping the trays and implantable devices. On a typical day the vendor processes an estimated 350 trays/implantable devices and up to 7,000 per month. The cost to sterilize a tray/implant comes out to $37.27 per tray.

This emergency request is needed as the vendor has refused to perform the sterilization services due to unpaid invoices. A Ratification request is forthcoming. Hospital purchases per Vizient contract reference number SV0050 with a term of 7/20/2011 through 7/19/2017 is awaiting SPO/CPO approval. The Procurement Bulletin reference number is 202IDM.
