Non-eProcurement opportunities are current competitively bid, RFP, RFQ, RFI and Small Order bids and addenda that cannot be responded to online, but available for downloading, with the exception of construction documents that the City is unable to post due to size of documents.  Those documents will be available on CD for pick up  at the City's Bid & Bond Room, City Hall Room 103. During a transition period, the City will begin with few eProcurement bid opportunities and move towards more and more eProcurement bid opportunities until all bid opportunities are eProcurement ones.

*****As part of an effort to ensure the health and safety of Chicago's residents and City employees, and to prevent the further spread of the COVID-19 virus, effective Thursday, March 19, 2020, City Hall and all Department of Procurement Services (DPS) locations are closed to the public until further notice. During this closure, paper bids and RFPs are being converted via addendum to eProcurement.  This allows vendors to submit bid/proposal responses electronically despite the closure of the Bid & Bond room.  Paper bids and proposals will not be accepted until further notice. All bid/proposal responses must be submitted electronically through eProcurement.***
