First published Friday, November 18, 2022
The University awarded a contract for Consulting Services.
This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which immediate action was needed to prevent any disruption in University services.
The existing Epic implementation consulting partner contracts that emanated from KRS125 are expiring in January 2023. These existing partners are currently engaged in several important Epic optimization initiatives. We expect new Epic module implementations to start in January. A new RFP has been drafted and issued (EWM168) and vendor responses are currently being evaluated. We had hoped that the RFP award would be on the January 2023 University of Illinois Board of Trustees (BOT) meeting agenda. However, we have been given guidance that the proposed timeline would not allow a January Board meeting and therefore are now targeting the March 2023 BOT. As a result, we are requesting an emergency to continue to utilize this consulting partner in order not to create a gap in services and to avoid causing delays in critical project start dates.
