Submit a Question
In follow-up to question #E10, please confirm that a bidder awarded unsecured credit through a guarantor can elect to post cash instead of executing a guaranty. In this scenario, the unsecured credit threshold would be $0 until a guaranty is exected.
This is correct, cash can be posted in place of a guaranty until the guaranty is executed.
Will bid forms with formulas be accepted?
We recommend that bidders submit bids as values rather than formulas in order to ensure that the values evaluated are those intended, but bid forms with formulas will not be rejected.
What time can binding bids be submitted on Thursday, May 5, 2011?
The bidding window will be open for submission of binding bids from 10:00 am CPT to 12:00 noon CPT on Thursday, May 5, 2011.
If a winning bidder is providing a guaranty, when must it be submitted to Ameren Illinois?
If a winning bidder is awarded unsecured credit through a guarantor, the guaranty is due at contract execution, which must be completed within three business days of the ICC ruling on the procurement results. The ICC is scheduled to rule on the Procurement Administrator's recommendation on Monday, May 9th, therefore contract execution will take place by Thursday, May 12th.
Please confirm where the Pre-Bid ILOC should be sent and the Beneficiary's address.
