The University awarded a contract for disposable N95 masks/respirators.
Unlimited Enterprises LLC offers disposable N95 Masks/Respirators. N95 respirators are tight-fitting respirators worn by patients or personnel that filter out at least 95% of particles in the air, including large and small particles, including bacteria and viruses.
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)) Unlimited Enterprises disposable have to do with direct patient treatment and care. Without access to these specific supplies the hospital would not be able to offer patient care, which in turn would drive patients elsewhere and result in a loss in revenue to the hospital.
