Construction projects may include involving buildings, utility systems, and other structures, including one or more of the divisions of work as defined by the Construction Specifications Institute MasterFormat. The price for individual projects to be accomplished through these contracts will be under the State of Illinois small purchase limit for construction, currently $76,600.
The University or a University-authorized architect/engineer firm will develop a scope of work for each project, solicit one or more quotes from the contractors awarded these contracts, and the University will issue a fixed-price order with a specific completion date for each project.
The University reserves the right to award multiple orders for all work to assure timely delivery of all work and best price. Multiple contracts (purchase orders) will be issued for the Facilities Management Department at this time. SIUE also reserves the right to receive quotes for projects under the formal bid limit from contractors not awarded this project.
Bids will only be received directly from General Contractors that must have submitted the solicitation-specific prequalification document prior to 4:00 p.m. CDT October 11, 2013 in accordance with RFI 8931. Contractors that have not submitted the document and have not received approval of the document will not be allowed to bid this contract. This document is in addition to the annual SIUE Prequalification Statement.
All resulting contracts issued against this bid will have required terms to provide full compliance with Illinois Public Act 96-0795, http://www.ilga.gov/legislation/publicacts/fulltext.asp?Name=096-0795 . These terms will apply to the awarded contractor and their subcontractors and include but are not limited to disclosure of financial interests, annual certifications and filing of subcontracts.
Bid documents may be obtained on the Higher Education Bulletin, www.procure.stateuniv.state.il.us. No documents will be distributed by SIUE. Due to the nature of the bid, there are no drawings and there is a three-page specification.
Bidders who have not completed and returned their prequalification statement which is valid for the period January 1, 2013 through December 31, 2013, will be required to prequalify in accordance with the bidding contract provision - Document PQ00250 Prequalification Documents. Firms may verify their prequalification status by contacting Shelly at malbert@siue.edu. The prequalification document will be due at the SIUE Purchasing Office a minimum of three days prior to the bid opening. Bids will not be accepted from Contractors who have not submitted and received approval of the SIUE Prequalification Statement.
In addition to completing SIUE’s prequalification statement, all bidders 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. All first-tier subcontractors also meet this requirement. This applies to both in-state and out-of-state firms. Failure to provide the Certificate of Good Standing (or other qualifications as noted in the form included with this document) with your bid will result in your bid being considered as non-responsive.
All questions must be e-mailed to Shelly Albert, malbert@siue.edu, by October 28, 2013, 12:00 p.m. Questions submitted after this date may not receive a response. Answers to all questions will be addressed in the form of an addendum and will be posted on the Illinois Higher Education Bulletin website, www.procure.stateuniv.state.il.us. Questions should not be addressed to any other SIUE representative. If contact of any kind occurs with any other representative, this will be grounds for disqualification.

The successful bidder shall pay current prevailing wage rates as posted on the Illinois Department of Labor’s website and shall utilize equal employment opportunity hiring practices in connection with this project.
