The University awarded a contract for temporary agency staffing.
Temporary agency staffing to fill vacancies in order to provide clinical and support services to our patients. In addition to normal vacancies, additional temporary staff is needed to respond to the COVID-19 disaster and will also be needed around our Epic go-live in September 2020.
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)) Hospital and Clinics have an ongoing need for temporary agency staffing to fill vacancies in order to provide clinical and support services to our patients. We have used Cross Country for at least three years through the Vizient contract and they have a proven record of being able to meet our needs. In addition to normal vacancies, additional temporary staff is needed to respond to the COVID-19 disaster and will also be needed around our Epic go-live in September 2020.
