In addition to meeting any other requirement of law or rule, a person (other than an individual acting as a sole proprietor) may qualify as a bidder or offeror under this Code only if the person is a legal entity authorized to do business in Illinois prior to submitting the bid, offer, or proposal. Do not confuse this requirement with the Board of Elections certification.

Failure to be in compliance at the time of bid opening will result in your bid being considered non-responsive.
State Board of Elections Certification:
Any firm or individual who wishes to submit a bid or proposal in response to this solicitation must make the certification below.
