Authorization of Cooperative Planning for Hermitage Mall Site Improvements and Designation of Park Livingston Health Walk, Chicago
(17) It has been proposed that the University and Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke's Medical Center (RPSLMC) undertake a jointly funded site improvement project to improve the amenities offered by the UIC and RPSLMC campuses within the Medical Center District. T h e proposed improvements include paving, landscaping, and other site improvements along the length of the Hermitage Mall which connects the University of Illinois Hospital and the RPSLMC Professional Building. It has been further recommended that the mall be designated as the Park Livingston Health Walk to recognize the contributions of Mr. Livingston 1 to the development of the Medical Center District and the University of Illinois. Under the proposed cooperative planning agreement, it is understood that the University of Illinois Board of Trustees will retain sole authority for the selection of any architectural/engineering firms and construction contractors that will work on the UIC portion of the project and for the approval of proposed site improvements. Total project costs are not to exceed $125,000. Costs for improvements to University property are estimated at $62,500, which is the University's share. No State funds will be used for the proposed improvements. I recommend that the proposed initiative be approved in recognition of the many contributions that Mr. Livingston has made to the University and the Medical Center District.
On motion of Dr. Bacon, this recommendation was approved by the following vote: Aye, Dr. Bacon, Mr. Boyle, Mr. Downey, Mr. Grabowski, Mrs. Gravenhorst, Mr. Lamont, Ms. Reese, Mrs. Shepherd; no, none; absent, Mrs. Calder, Governor Edgar.

Housekeeping management services are currently being provided under a contract with ServiceMaster, Inc., which began on January 1, 1987, with renewals through September 30, 1992. While the level of cleanliness has improved, a higher standard was identified as pivotal for the hospital and clinics to facilitate full implementation of strategic planning initiatives. A committee of administrative and clinical personnel for the hospital and clinics was formed to review the existing contract to define standards of quality and a minimum level of cleanliness to be included in a Request For Proposal (RFP). An RFP was issued to 15 firms. Eight firms responded to the RFP. T h e selection criteria for initial review of the RFP included the total cost of service, quality performance record, quality of proposals for housekeeping management, corporate support and
