Announcement of an Exempt Purchase

Change Order

First published Wednesday, February 5, 2020
The University awarded a contract for respiratory therapy.
Pulmonary Exchange will provide Respiratory Therapy Staff to provide respiratory therapy to patients of UI Health.
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)) It is necessary to provide the highest level of care to the patients within UI Health. The lack of the respiratory therapy staff needed to provide this care will limit our ability to treat patients and they will not receive timely treatment for their respiratory needs.
