The State of Illinois
Chief Procurement Office has made available the Illinois Procurement Gateway
(IPG). The IPG (https://ipg.vendorreg.com/)
a streamlined, online process that allows those doing business with the state
(including contractors, subcontractors, architects, engineers and consultants)
to enter, organize, and submit information, certification and disclosure
documents online, in advance of a particular procurement. We encourage
all those that do business with the Capital Development Board to register in
the IPG located at https://ipg.vendorreg.com.
Use of the IPG is
optional. You will have the option of submitting a bid or 255 form via
paper, or with an IPG registration. CDB is incorporating the option to
use an IPG registration number in its bidding documents. Effective August
15, 2014, all solicitations will allow the use the number in place of certain
paper documents. Until all CDB bidding and offer documents are updated,
please use the standard paper submittal option.
As CDB documents are
fully updated you will see some additional minor changes, such as an area to
detail the services provided by subcontractors and a 00 41 08 form which
contains the Standard Terms and Conditions. Please review all bid and
offer forms carefully and follow the instructions..
