First published Friday, July 19, 2019
The University awarded a contract for respirator fit testing and training .
This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which public health or safety was threatened.
It was brought to the University's attention via our Vendor Credentialing System (VendorMate), that the employee/owner of the company that is the current vendor has been providing services to the University while he had a summarily suspended license in the state of Washington in 2016 for a series of incidents. As we reviewed this issue with our Compliance & Risk Management Departments we also identified that the vendor's completed Financial Disclosures and Conflicts of Interest document for same employee/owner, Step 7 question 2 asked if individual has had any professional licensure disciplines within the last 10 years which he claimed none. Therefore the university has taken the necessary action to terminate the contract. These services are a critical component of our accreditation & OSHA compliance requirements, and require an emergency replacement vendor.
