Published Monday August 15, 2022
Vendor: Stryker Sales Corp.

The change order to the original exemption permits us to treat the exemption as a single transaction.

The Chief Procurement Officer for this procurement is now John Donato.

The University awarded a contract for Neuro Power Tools and Accessories.
Powered instruments and accessories are used to cut, shape, fixate, and dissect bone as well as to fragment, emulsify and aspirate soft tissue in all types of procedures, from reconstructive, sports med and extremities, to the most complex in neurosurgery, spine, and ENT.
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)) Without access to these supplies, UI Health would not be able to offer life saving and preventative surgeries to our patients.
