Welcome to the Illinois Power Agency website for the Ameren Illinois Utilities 2010 Energy, Capacity and RECs RFPs. This site will serve as the platform for participating in the 2010 Procurement. Each of the RFPs is located on a separate section of the site, 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 site is constructed to preserve the confidentiality of bidders and information submitted by bidders.

Each RFP section of the website 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, forms to be completed by prospective bidders, and directions for completing the forms. Each prospective bidder must submit a Pre-Qualification Application, which includes bidder's and guarantor's company and credit information, as well as other relevant information. The public tier 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. 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.

This website is managed by Levitan & Associates, Inc. as part of our role as the Illinois Power Agency's Procurement Administrator for the 2009 Ameren Illinois Utilities RFPs. In accordance with the requirements of Section 16-111.5(c)(2) of the Public Utilities Act (220 ILSC 5/16-11.5), the Procurement Monitor, retained by the Illinois Commerce Commission, will also have access to all public and secure information posted to the Web site.

The products to be procured under this plan generally cover the period from June 1, 2010, through May 31, 2013.
