The University awarded a contract for N95 Masks.
Due to COVID-19 the hospital needs masks to help reduce the spread of the virus. The N95 Mask helps reduce the person's exposure to the air pollution and COVID-19 virus; catalog #8110. The N95 mask blocks 95% airborne particles, and provides maximum protection against fluid particles and bacteria.
This purchase is exempt from the usual selection processes of the Procurement Code because the procurement expenditure is for medical supplies or medical at a university-operated health care center or dispensary that provides care, treatment, and medications for students, faculty and staff (30 ILCS 500 / 1-13(b-5)) The seal formed in N95 respirator masks offers better protection of mouth and nose than surgical masks which filter only the outgoing air.
