Description and Specifications:
This is notice of the emergency procurement of H1N1 Flu (Swine)testing supplies. The reagents requested were used to perform H1N1 Flu (Swine)testing at the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH)laboratory in Springfield.

Key Information

Notice Type:Emergency Procurement

Notice Expiration Date:11/04/2009
Emergency Justification:The Department of Public Health did not have the reagents budgeted for this emergency response. The laboratory work identifies the presence and extent of H1N1 Flu (Swine)in Illinois. This assists the Immunization Program in Illinois with epidemiological analysis of the extent of H1N1 Flu (Swine). To perform the necessary testing as quickly as the possible pandemic was happening, we did not have time to obtain prior approval and procured from our known vendor. Without these reagents, the testing for H1N1 Flu (Swine)could not have been done. The health and safety of Illinois citizens may have been endangered without this emergency procurement.

The IDPH Laboratory owns equipment that requires these specific reagents and the employees are already familiar with the reagent preparation. It will be economically beneficial to maintain the same brand of reagents to use with the already owned equipment and recommended by the CDC. Using the same brand will minimize response time for testing of H1N1 Flu (Swine). In addition, this same type of reagents and equipment is used by the majority of the State laboratories participating in the H1N1 Flu (Swine) surveillance which makes it beneficial when comparing results performed with the same type of reagents and CDC/APHL assay.
Accordance with Admin Rule:Danger to public health/safety

Professional & Artistic:No
Small Business Set-Aside:No
