CDB Update

The recent health crisis has caused some changes to CDB operations and ongoing projects.  Due to concern about the further transmission of the COVID-19 virus, CDB has temporarily suspended most construction activities on CDB projects.  Design work not performed at a State facility can still continue, if it can be performed in a way that does not jeopardize the health of the design professionals working on the project. The safety of our staff, vendors, and the public at large is our top priority.  If you are a CDB vendor with an active CDB project, detailed instruction will be forthcoming.  At this time, we are uncertain of the length of this temporary suspension of most project activities, but we are hopeful all project activities will resume soon.   


CDB also recognizes that during these unprecedented times, the ability of our valued partners to respond to procurement bulletins may be impacted as companies and their employees adjust in response to COVID-19 recommendations.  Until further notice CDB is suspending all open procurement actions. This includes all projects out for bidding and posted in the Bid Information Newsletter (BIN), those projects advertised in the Professional Services Bulletin (PSB) and current Design-Build RFP’s that are active. At the appropriate time these procurements will be resumed through the issuance of Addenda or Amendments as appropriate and submittal dates will be adjusted to allow adequate time for preparation of bids and submittals.


As the COVID-19 virus brings uncertainty to the world around us, please note that the Capital Development Board stands with you. Thank you for your patience as we work through many difficult issues and please share this with your members and associates.

    Renew, Renovate and Restore

    When one of the State of Illinois’ 8,771 properties requires repair or renovation, the Capital Development Board manages the project. Many projects involve modernizing facilities to meet accessibility standards and protecting the lives and safety of Illinois residents by removing such environmental hazards as asbestos and lead. Projects can range from the replacement of a failing heating system to the restoration of internationally significant historic structures.
