The University awarded a contract for an afterloader.
The Bravos High Dose Rate (HDR) afterloader is a brachytherapy treatment used at UIH to treat a number of cancers. This HDR afterloader will replace an existing afterloader that is at end of life.
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)) The HDR afterloader is necessary to continue offering HDR services. Without replacing the unit that is at end of life, the HDR program will not be able to continue.
