A mandatory pre-bid conference, for all those interested in bidding the project, will be held on November 3, 2015 at 10:00 a.m. in the Supporting Services Building. Representatives of the University and KJWW 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. This will be the only site visit, so encourage any subcontractors to attend, along with your staff.
All questions must be e-mailed to Shelly Albert, firstname.lastname@example.org, by November 9, 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 KJWW representative. If contact of any kind occurs with any other representative, this will be grounds for disqualification.
Bidders who have not completed and returned their prequalification statement which is valid for the period January 1, 2015 through December 31, 2015, will be required to prequalify in accordance with the bidding contract provision - Document PQ00250 Prequalification Documents.

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. The University reserves the right to reject any and all bids.
In support of the Business Enterprise for Minority, Female and Persons with Disabilities Act (MAFBE; 30 ILCS 575 et seq., as amended) the University has established an aspirational goal of 20% of its contracts to be awarded to minority (11%), female (7%), and disabled (2%) businesses. University encourages minority, female and disabled business enterprises to compete for and participate in University contracts. The goals can be met by means of contracts let directly to minority, female and disabled business firms by University or indirectly by Proposer?s ordering goods or services from minority, female and disabled firms when suppliers or subcontractors are needed to fulfill the Contract.
