*Updated BEP Utilization Information*

A list of University-supplied NIGP commodity codes has been included in Part III of this solicitation's BEP Utilization Plan. Per the Utilization Plan's instructions, vendors who request a waiver from the goal on the basis of good faith efforts must exhaustively contact each vendor certified with the University-supplied commodity codes and document that contact in the Utilization Plan's Good Faith Efforts Contact Log. Waiver requests cannot be granted without exhausting outreach efforts in accordance with the Utilization Plan. For current and official BEP resources go to: https://cms.diversitycompliance.com.

If the list of University-supplied NIGP commodity codes excludes a code that a prospective respondent or BEP-certified vendor believes should be included with the solicitation, additional codes may be requested and must be submitted by the question deadline for this solicitation. These requests should be made through a commodity code addition form supplied by the University buyer assigned to this solicitation. Email the buyer to obtain this form. If requested, additional University-supplied commodity codes may be added to the Utilization Plan by addendum at the University's discretion.

Subcontractors must meet the same requirements as prime contractors to do business with Illinois State University.
