The University awarded a contract for transplant donor services.
Transplant Donor Services.
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)) Islet cell transplantation is possible after the processing of cells via CellTrans. This procedure offers an alternative when transplantation is not available to our patients in need of a pancreas transplantation, thus providing important patient care.
