The University desires to establish agreements with a pool of qualified vendors for the purchase of Plumbing & Pipefitting services. Individual projects will not exceed the small purchase threshold for construction and will be performed on an as-needed basis. The initial contract will commence no later than July 1, 2016 and will end June 30, 2017. The qualified pool of vendors selection process requires no pricing be submitted with your response to this RFP. However, vendors who are selected into the pool of qualified vendors will be provided an opportunity to submit quotes on an as-needed basis throughout the term of the contract. Interested vendors are advised that Public Works requirements (see section 8.1 in this solicitation) apply to all work contemplated under this RFP.
The University has spent in the aggregate an average of $500,000 per year on small plumbing & pipefitting projects since 2014.
There is a vendor conference scheduled for Thursday, May 12, 2016 at 10:00am at the Old Main conference room in Bone Student Center. 100 N. University St., Normal, IL 61761. Vendors are reminded that the pool of qualified vendors selection process is different than a standard RFP or construction bid and interested vendors are strongly encouraged to attend this conference.
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.
