Status: Closed


Description and Specifications:
The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) is giving notice of intent to award a contract as a sole economically feasible source to the Illinois Broadcasters Association (IBA).

IDPH will purchase Non Commercial Service Announcements (NCSA) that are vital to providing the public with information about the latest public health threats and health promotion campaigns so communities can take action to stay safe and healthy. The immediate public health threat that requires an educational NCSA is Zika virus. It is important to educate the community, especially pregnant women, about the serious health impacts that can occur as a result of being infected with Zika virus. In addition, IDPH will purchase NCSAs about other continuous threats to the public’s health, such as childhood lead poisoning, Opioid use, vaccine-preventable diseases-importance of immunizations and other emerging public health issues.

A hearing is scheduled for Wednesday, May 31, 2017, at the Stratton Office Building, 401 S. Spring St., Room 511, Springfield, IL 62706. Call-in information for those unable to attend in person will be provided upon request. Interested parties wishing to request a hearing or submit comments must do so in writing and submit their request to the notice contact. Request for a public hearing by an interested party or written comments shall be made by Friday, May 26, 2017, at 5:00 p.m. to:

The hearing will be cancelled, unless an interested party submits a written request for public hearing by Friday, May 26, 2017, at 5:00 p.m. to the notice contact listed above.

If a public hearing is requested, the purchasing agency shall present testimony justifying the procurement method. Any interested party may present testimony for or against the sole source determination as described in this notice. The purpose of the hearing will be to receive information from the public regarding whether a sole source award is appropriate and in accordance with the Illinois Procurement Code. Formal rules of evidence will not apply. Hearings may be recorded in order to aid in the production of minutes. Parties may submit written comments in lieu of attending the hearing. Written comments will be afforded the same weight as oral comments received at the hearing.

Key Information

Notice Type:Sole Economically Feasible Source
Notice Stage:
Hearing Notice of Decision Upheld

Notice Expiration Date:06/16/2017
Sole Source Only Justification:IBA is the only statewide organization of radio and television stations in Illinois and the only entity that can offer IDPH statewide airtime at a fraction of the cost of regular advertising. The members of the IBA do not compete with each other, but are partners with the IBA for the statewide messaging. IDPH will be able to target audiences and areas of the state for effective risk communications messaging. IBA is the only organization that allows for NCSA. A NCSA is different than a PSA in that NCSAs allow an organization to change the service announcement message, and more importantly select the geographical media area and times the NCSA will run.
