Public Higher Education Bulletin

About the Public Higher Education Bulletin

What Is the Illinois Procurement Bulletin/Public Institutions of Higher Education (IPB/HE)?

The IPB/HE is a free online resource for vendors wishing to do business with the public universities in Illinois. Participating universities post notices for upcoming bids, requests for proposal, requests for information, solicitation documents, and awards.

Vendors can search for notices that may be of interest to them, download bid documents, and return to check the status of a bid.

Publication Policy

The Office of the Higher Education Chief Procurement Officer publishes IPB/HE notices based on information provided by each of the State Universities. Each State University independently determines which notices are submitted to the IPB/HE for publication based on the requirements.

See the Publication Schedule to find out when and for how long advertisements are posted and a listing of IPB/HE holidays. Anticipated downtimes for the IPB/HE, for service or upgrades, are noted on the homepage under Announcements.
