Description and Specifications:
As allowed by 30 ILCS 500/20-30 (a), the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) hereby provides notice of the emergency procurement of services from MicroPact Global Inc. MicroPact Global Inc. will provide development changes to allow Illinois to implement the unique requirements of the Medical Cannabis Pilot Program and allow each agency to meet the mandates required by the Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act (Act), P.A. 98-0122 and 99-0519 [410 ILCS 130].
The Act provides very stringent timeframes for approving patient/ caregiver applications and issuing registry identification cards. Within 30 days of reviewing a complete application, DPH must approve or deny the application or the Act provides for remedies for the patient/caregiver. Additionally, the Act specified applications for persons diagnosed with a terminal illness must be processed within 14 days. Failure to meet these prescribed timeframes will result in qualifying patients being deemed "approved" by state law and may result in law enforcement issues related to the unlawful transport and possession of medical cannabis. This could result in the needless arrest and prosecution of qualifying patients.
Notice Expiration Date:
This emergency procurement will prevent or minimize serious disruption in critical State services that affect access to health-sustaining medical cannabis products for qualifying patients with serious debilitating medical conditions as provided under the Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act [410 ILCS 130] until a competitively bid contract can be awarded.
Accordance with Admin Rule:
Minimize serious disruption to critical state services that affect health, safety, or collection of substantial state revenues
