First published Monday, September 26, 2022
The University awarded a contract for Dental Instruments.
Dental instruments used in patient clinics for dental procedures at the College of Dentistry.
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)) If a different vendor were brought in at this time, additional money would need to be invested to replace instruments and accessories used to sterilize, distribute and store them. The College has invested in special cassettes that fit properly all instruments, and are able to go through the sterilization process. Procurement of different type/size cassettes would represent undue burden to clinical operations.
