The University awarded a contract for urinary incontinence and ED implants.
The implants provided by American Medical Systems, Incorporated (AMS) are used to treat urinary incontinence and erectile dysfunction (ED).
This purchase is exempt from the usual selection processes of the Procurement Code because the procurement expenditure is for medical supplies or medical services necessary for the delivery of care and treatment at medical, dental, or veterinary teaching facilities utilized by SIU or U of I (30 ILCS 500 / 1-13(b-5)) Without access to the implants from AMS, the University of Illinois Hospital would not be able to offer urinary incontinence and erectile dysfunction procedures, which in turn would drive patients elsewhere and result in a loss of revenue.

The State of Illinois has a policy to encourage prospective vendors to hire qualified veterans, minorities, females, persons with disabilities and ex-offenders.
