Welcome to the 2008 Ameren Illinois Utilities RFP Web site. This Web site will serve as the platform for participating in the 2008 Energy, Capacity and Renewable Energy Credits RFPs. Each of these RFPs is located on a separate section of the Web site. The Web site is designed to aid prospective bidders by: providing information about the procurement process; directions regarding bidder pre-qualification and bid preparation; a forum for asking questions and obtaining answers about the RFPs and the procurement process; and a means for submitting bidder information and bids. The Web site is constructed to preserve the confidentiality of bidders and information submitted by bidders.

Each RFP section of the Web site consists of two tiers:

  1. The first tier is fully accessible to the public, and contains the RFP and contract documents, bidder credit requirements, announcements regarding modifications to any of these materials, two sets of forms to be completed by prospective bidders, and directions for completing forms and submitting bids. The first form is the Notice of Intent to Bid, which must be completed and submitted by all prospective bidders. The second form is the Pre-Qualification Application, by which each bidder submits information regarding bidder’s and guarantor’s company and credit information, as well as other relevant information. The public tier of the Web site also contains the forum for questions and answers. Any information which might reveal the identity of the bidder submitting the questions will be removed prior to posting. Prospective bidders will file their Pre-Qualification Applications through this tier of the Web site. Bidders who are pre-qualified will be notified and will become Registered Bidders by submitting a bid letter of credit and a signed commitment form.
  2. The secure tier is protected and accessible only to Registered Bidders. In the secure tier, Registered Bidders will submit their binding, confidential bids.
