UIC is still in the process of finalizing RFP #KRS128 to select new vendors for FY 2019. New vendors have been identified and were presented to the Board for approval at the September meeting. At that time, we learned that a protest was filed (KRS128). A protest determination was made 11/16/18; however it does not allow time for UIC to post award and negotiate necessary contracts to continue to provide critical, temporary personnel services to UIC and UI Health prior to the expiration of the current Emergency purchase and funding.

The Hearing date for an one-year extension has been scheduled for Monday, December 17, 2018 @ 9:00a.m. at the Stratton Building - Room 510, 401 S. Spring St. - Springfield, IL 62706.
The State Purchasing Officer for this procurement is now Lee Saulter.
