The University awarded a contract for interpretation services.
Systematech provides interpretation services including over-the-phone, video, and onsite translation. These interpretation services allow doctors to communicate with patients to ensure appropriate diagnosis.
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 these services, the University of Illinois Hospital would not be able to provide patient care due to the inability to communicate with patients.

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