The Board of Trustees of the Southern Illinois University governing Southern Illinois University Edwardsville hereby requests sealed bids to furnish all labor, equipment, tools and materials for the demolition of the existing air cooled chiller at Ralph Korte Stadium and the installation of a new, air cooled chiller.

A mandatory pre-bid conference, for all those interested in bidding the project, will be held on, July 7, 2015 at 10:00 a.m. in the Supporting Services Building. Representatives of the University and BRiC Partnership will be present to answer questions regarding the project and bidding procedures. All prospective bidders are required to attend. All representatives must be in the conference room of the Supporting Services by 10:10 and must stay for the entire meeting and site visit. All contractors are required to sign in and sign out after site visit. If contractor is late or leaves before the completion of the meeting or site visit, the contractor will not be considered attending the pre-bid conference. A site visit will immediately follow the mandatory pre-bid meeting. This will be the only site visit so all subcontractors and suppliers are encouraged to attend.
All questions must be e-mailed to Shelly Albert, malbert@siue.edu, by July 10, 2015, 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 Procurement Bulletin website, www.procure.stateuniv.state.il.us. Questions should not be addressed to any other SIUE or a BRiC Partnership representative. If contact of any kind occurs with any other representative, this will be grounds for disqualification.

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.
The successful bidder will be required to comply with all laws, statutes, regulations, ordinances, rulings or enactments of any governmental authority which are applicable to the work or to the project. 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.
