The University award process may be delayed up to thirty days as this award goes through a state approval process.

First published Thursday, October 14, 2021
The University awarded a contract for management/administrative services.
Management/Administrative Services for Colbert and Williams consent decree projects with the Illinois Department of Human Services under Program 792 - Quality Assurance and Data Analytics.
This purchase is exempt from the usual selection processes of the Procurement Code because the procurement expenditure is for performing sponsored research and other sponsored activities under grants and contracts funded by the sponsor or by sources other than State appropriations. (30 ILCS 500 / 1-13(b)(8)) This purchase is in the best interest of the University as Dr. Jones provides keen subject matter expertise for implementing quality improvement in adherence to the consent decrees (Colbert/Williams). Without Dr. Jones' expertise, the University would be in jeopardy of not providing the deliverables on 3-grants and lose that level of support and funding. Dr. Lorrie Jones serves as a Subject Matter Expert (SME) and strategy consultant to the State DHS Secretary, the Olmstead Compliance Officer and the College of Nursing on Olmstead Compliance, mental health/substance use disorder delivery systems, community integration, primary care behavioral health integration models, medicaid funded services and state plan amendments and managed care.
