Requests for Bids and Proposals are posted in this section. Use the links above to view an RSS Feed of individual categories and subscribe to a category for eNotifications. You can also view the items below. All listings include links to the post's documentation.
It is the responsibility of all bidders/proposers to check the City of Joliet Bids and Requests for Proposals page for any addenda to solicitations for which they intend to bid to ensure they have the most recent solicitation files.
Vendors can be notified of addendums, new bid solicitations, bid tabulations, etc. by signing up for RSS feeds. To do so click on the category at the top of this page that you want to have documentation sent to you for and follow the directions on that page. Addenda will be sent only to those individuals who have registered for RSS feeds. The potential vendor/contractor remains responsible for obtaining all addenda to the original specification so they should check the specific bid page before submitting a bid to make sure they have received all addendums to a specific contract.
The City of Joliet does not keep bidders list. Lists of who is signed up for the individual RSS categories can be obtained from the Purchasing Division by calling 815-724-3925 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org but that does not reflect who has downloaded the documents, just who is signed up to receive notifications that the information is available.
All formally advertised bids are opened and read publicly. You are invited to attend a bid opening at any time. Bid openings are conducted in the Office of the City Clerk, 150 W. Jefferson St., Joliet, IL 60432.
Bids are then tabulated and evaluated, with a recommendation being made to the City Council for award.
Bid and/or performance bonds and prequalification may be required with some bids. Specific instructions and explanations are included in all bid documents.
Bids for materials should always include freight costs in the total bid, unless otherwise stated. No additional charges for freight after the fact are allowed.
Forward submittals in sealed envelopes clearly marked with the bid number, the name of the bid, and the date and time of the scheduled opening. Bids must be received before the date and time set for the bid opening. Bids received after the date and time set for the bid opening will not be considered.
- Bid results represent "as read" submittals at time of the bid opening. They do not represent contract award.
- Formal bid tabulations for contracts where the contract is not a lump sum bid, will be posted onto this site after the City Council has awarded the contract.
