Request: Authorization for the Chief Procurement Officer to enter into and execute

 

Good(s) or Service(s):  University of Illinois Zoological Pathology Program

 

Contract Value:  $500,000.00

 

Contract period:  7/1/2018 - 6/30/2023

 

Potential Fiscal Year Budget Impact: FY2018 $100,000.00, FY2019 $100,000.00, FY2020 $100,000.00,  FY2021 $100,000.00,  FY2022 $100,000.00

 

Accounts:  521300

 

Contract Number(s):  1868-17115

 

Concurrences:                     

The contract-specific goal set on this contract was zero.

 

The Chief Procurement Officer concurs.

 

Summary: This contract will allow the Department of Animal and Rabies Control to fully investigate and document all disease outbreaks of zoonotic or vector-born diseases in humans by an accredited veterinary pathology laboratory. It is located at Brookfield Zoo, the University of Illinois Zoological Pathology Program functions as Medical Examiner for animals and is the only full-time accredited wildlife, exotic and zoo pathology program in the state of Illinois. 

 

The location at Brookfield Zoo allows the Department of Animal and Rabies Control to transport entire cadavers, which may be as large as an elk, to an accredited veterinary pathology laboratory without crossing State lines with potentially contaminated agents.  Using a laboratory outside of Illinois would violate Federal laws prohibiting transportation of infectious materials across State lines. 

 

This is a Sole Source Procurement pursuant to Section 34-139 of the Cook County Procurement Code.
