The University awarded a contract for syringes and disposables.
Bayer Corporation, offers syringes and disposables for computed tomography, angiography, magnetic resonance, and molecular imaging. The syringes are used as contrast media injectors that are used to inject contrast media or contrast agents to enhance the blood and perfusion in tissues.
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)) Bayer Corporation supplies have to do with direct patient care. Without access to these specific supplies the hospital would not be able to offer patient care, which in turn would drive patients else where and a loss in revenue to the hospital to the hospital.
