The University awarded a contract for temporary staffing 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 (UI Health) is responsible for providing comprehensive care, education, and research to the people of Illinois and beyond. A part of the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), UI Health, comprises a clinical enterprise that includes a 465-bed tertiary care hospital, 21 outpatient clinics, and 11 Mile Square Health Center facilities, which are Federally Qualified Health Centers. It also includes the seven UIC health science colleges: the College of Applied Health Sciences; the College of Dentistry; the School of Public Health; the Jane Addams College of Social Work; and the Colleges of Medicine, Pharmacy, and Nursing, including regional campuses in Peoria, Quad Cities, Rockford, Springfield, and Urbana. UI Health is dedicated to the pursuit of health equity. If UI Health has a lapse in providing the critical services, this could jeopardize patients health and the loss of revenue.

The University is in the midst of issuing a new request for proposal - RFP #KRS128, but the entire process will not be completed by June 30, 2018. This emergency is being requested in order to avoid a lapse in critical services and loss of revenue for UI Health.

The current Cross Country Staffing, Inc./Medical Staffing Network (Cross Country) contract is for temporary personnel services that will end on June 30, 2018. Cross Country provides Medical Laboratory Technicians and Histotechnicians. Cross Country currently has 22 agency staff working at both UIC and UI Health to provide clinical and non-clinical support.
