Chicago State University invites proposals from qualified, responsive, responsible vendors to partner with the University to increase enrollment in College of Education Online Programs through a vendor's marketing and recruitment efforts.
Proposals will be submitted only via e-bidding. Any prospective vendor MUST be registered through the Illinois Procurement Gateway (IPG) with an active, unexpired certification. See attached document that contains additional e-bidding instructions.
Vendors MUST submit a Business Enterprise Program (BEP) Utilization Plan demonstrating their ability to meet the 20% BEP goal, or must provide documented evidence of unsuccessful outreach via a completed Good Faith Effort form within the Utilization Plan to support any claim for a waiver of the goal. Proposals that do not comply with this requirement will be disqualified.
This transaction is subject to the State Board of Elections registration and certification requirements of Public Act 095-0971.
The State of Illinois has a policy to encourage prospective vendors to hire qualified veterans, minorities, females, persons with disabilities and ex-offenders.
