Affirmative Action Program: Steps for Doing Business with the District

  1. All vendors should monitor the Coming Contracts section of this web site for new opportunities to bid on MWRDGC contracts or RFPs as a prime contractor / consultant or to prepare scopes of work and prices for subcontract opportunities.
  2. Prospective bidders may request bid forms, specifications  and Plan holders Lists in person at the MWRDGC Department of Procurement and Material Management Contract Desk in the main office or by faxing a request to (312) 751-3042. All formal bids must be submitted on forms furnished by the MWRDGC.

    The invitation to bid will specify whether or not the bidder is allowed to request mailing of the documents. If a bid document is requested for mailing, the MWRDGC does not ensure that the document will arrive to the potential supplier in time for their firm to provide a bid on the due date stated in the invitation to bid. A document fee may be required for plans and specifications.

  3. Subcontractors should contact plan holders directly to pursue subcontract opportunities with potential bidders.
