Vendors Legal Authorization
Vendors may qualify to submit bids to state universities of Illinois only if they are a legal entity authorized to do business in Illinois prior to submitting the bid. This applies to both in-state and out-of-state firms. Failure to provide the Certificate in Good Standing (or other qualifications as noted on the attached Vendor Legal Authorization Form) with your bid may result in your bid being considered as non-responsive. Bidders must submit a true and correct copy substantiating legal registration (30 ILCS 500/1.15.80), according to the guidelines that are referenced on the Vendor Legal Authorization form. Specific information can be obtained from the Illinois Secretary of State. First-tier subcontractors in which subcontracts exceed $50,000 will be required to provide this same information to the awardee and to SIUE within 20 days of the award to the awardee of this bid.
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.
