REMINDER TO VENDORS SUBMITTING FORMS B

Vendors intending to fulfill certification and disclosure requirements by supplying the State with their Illinois Procurement Gateway registration number, expiration date, and “FORMS B” documents must read this clarification document in its entirety.

VENDORS UTILIZING “FORMS B” MUST BE REGISTERED SPECIFICALLY WITH THE ILLINOIS PROCUREMENT GATEWAY TO BE DEEMED RESPONSIVE TO THIS SOLICITATION.

In order to verify that you are registered with the Illinois Procurement Gateway (IPG) please click on “Registered Vendor Directory” on the IPG homepage (https://ipg.vendorreg.com). Search for your Business Name. If your company does not appear in the search results, then you are not registered in the IPG.

To use FORMS B, vendors must be listed in the “Registered Vendor Directory” as described above and provide a valid registration number with expiration date from the Illinois Procurement Gateway. Please note that it is possible for vendors, who have registered with another government entity (such as the City of Chicago’s Compliance and Certification portal) using the same portal software, to have a registration number and expiration date for a different (non-State of Illinois) application process. Registration information from other government entities will not be accepted.

If the “Registered Vendor Directory” does not list your company, then you must utilize the “FORMS A” option to meet the certification and disclosure requirements of this solicitation. Please submit Forms A with every bid/proposal until the State of Illinois notifies you that your IPG registration is approved and your Business Name appears in the “Registered Vendor Directory” as described above.
