First published Thursday, January 12, 2023
The University awarded a contract for organ donor lab tests.
The testing is a claimable expense for the University in the annual Medicare Cost Report. Organ donors that are found to be a match and appropriate for surgery support our patient population in need of kidneys.
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)) Quest Diagnostics performs lab testing for potential organ donors across the USA to determine if they are appropriate for donation. The specific labs required are not available at other laboratories.
