Description and Specifications:
The Department of Public Health is giving notice of intent to award a contract as a sole source to: Integrated Solutions Consulting. The CEMP is a continual cycle integrating preparedness elements - planning, education, training, and exercising - efficiently and effectively. This web-based system provides cloud-computing that will enable IDPH to realize a tremendous improvement in its ability to support the maintenance and implementation of preparedness doctrine and programs. The CEMP provides public health departments with real solutions for many common preparedness and planning gaps. This system will provide the necessary structure to ensure programmatic compliance with existing and new federal requirements of 96 Local Health Departments and 156 Hospitals in the Hospital Preparedness Program required by the federal grants from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). For ease of operation and interoperability, it is only practical that the State of Illinois utilize the same system than it is to use two different systems. The system is comprehensive and the best in its class at a very reasonable cost for the State Health Department, the remaining 93 local health departments, and all hospitals within the State of Illinois.
