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)) If a different vendor were brought in at this time, different dental materials from other vendors would have to be evaluated requiring a long time for evaluation and a big expense for the College. The College has a history with the products and the supplies that satisfy the needs of the current curriculum and faculty in addition to be evidence based products with a scientific background.
