The Purchasing Department manages the expenditures of all college funds to achieve the maximum value per dollar spent. Illinois Central College’s purchasing procedures are consistent with the Illinois Public Community College Act and represent the intentions and goals of its Board of Trustees.
All bids and RFPs are advertised in the Peoria Journal Star.
In an effort to improve service and ease of public disclosure, Illinois Central College will be utilizing BidNet Direct’s Illinois Purchasing Group to post solicitation documents. This system will provide you convenient online access to view current, past (beginning 3/1/2020) and awarded bids, RFQ and RFP documents, addendum, and bid specific Q&As. There is no charge to register- simply select the “Limited Access” option and you can view all solicitations and automatically receive matching bid notifications and alerts from ICC. If you need any assistance registering or using the platform, please call BidNet’s Support Team at 800-835-4603.
If you are not a BEP-Certified company and plan to submit a proposal or bid on a project, we encourage you to subcontract a portion of the work with a BEP-Certified firm. Use the Utilization Plan to demonstrate mutual participation or Good Faith Effort and/or to request a waiver. BEP Good Faith Efforts Guidance.

Purchase Order Terms and Conditions
Prevailing Wage Rates
Pursuant to 820 ILCS 130/4, public bodies in each County that have active public works projects are responsible for notifying all contractors and subcontractors working on those public works projects of the change (if any) to rates that were previously in effect. The failure of a public body to provide such notice does not relieve contractors or subcontractors of their obligations under the Prevailing Wage Act, including the duty to pay the relevant prevailing wage in effect at the time work subject to the Act is performed.
For more information, visit the Illinois Department of Labor’s website on prevailing wage rates by county.
College property that is deemed obsolete, unusable or no longer needed by the college will be classified as Surplus.
The ICC Surplus Store is a great place to find used equipment, furniture and other items the college no longer needs. All items are offered for sale on an “as-is” basis with no warranty expressed or implied. New items are posted to the store on Thursday afternoon.
Surplus property will also be offered for sale to the public via GovDeals, an online auction website specializing in liquidation of assets for government agencies.
