Overview

Description and Specifications:
The Department of Public Health is giving notice of intent to award a contract as a sole source to: Abbott Informatics Corporation. The STARLIMS software is a Public Health laboratory management software that tracks sample receipt, testing and reporting of patient results to physicians, local health departments, IDPH Programs, and other state and federal agencies.

Without the maintenance agreement, the public health laboratories will not be able to test the software when new tests are added, obtain troubleshooting help when changes are made to report wording on patient results, or obtain assistance for software changes needed when the Department of Central Management updates the network supporting the laboratory's STARLIMS software. Unresolved problems mean that the laboratories would not be able to report results on drinking water, TB, HIV, Influenza, malaria, and other diseases.
