Contract for Laundry Services, University of Illinois Hospital and Clinics, Chicago
(19) The chancellor at Chicago recommends contracting with Chapman Laundry Service Corporation1 to provide laundry services to the University of Illinois Hospital and Clinics (UIH&C) for the period July 1, 1993, to June 30, 1994. This service will replace the internal laundry unit of UIH&C at an annual savings of approximately $400,000. This action to contract for services was recommended through the Operations Improvement process. Chapman will make two deliveries and pick-ups per day, six days per week. Specific schedules for the delivery of clean linen and removal of soiled linen to four identified locations will be adhered to as indicated by UIH&C. Chapman will be responsible for sanitizing all linen carts at their facility prior to returning them to UIH&C and the routine maintenance of the linen carts. The contract also includes the processing of lab coats and mops for Housekeeping Services. New linen inventory ordered by UIH&C will also be received, stamped (with University identification), and stored by Chapman. The University has the option to renew the contract for four additional oneyear periods. Prices for the renewal periods will not exceed changes in the Department of Labor Consumer Price Index. It is recommended that the comptroller be authorized to renew the contract in the option years. Contract renewals will be reviewed with the board in the option years. The annual payments for the first year are based on $.27 for one pound of laundry. It is estimated that 1.9 million pounds of laundry are processed annually which results in an estimated cost in the first year of $513,000. The actual expenditures may vary based upon actual number of pounds laundered. The vice president for business and finance recommends approval. I concur.
