    Garden Hills Drainage Improvement Project Bid Opening

    In March 2020 the City issued seven bid packets for the Garden Hills Drainage Improvement Project, which included the demolition of 17 properties on Hedge Road. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the bid openings were postponed until June 9, 2020. Typically, the City opens and reads bids aloud 30 minutes after the bid due date and time. However, the City modified the process to include a minimum 24-hour waiting period between the bid due date/time and the bid opening date as a precautionary measure against COVID-19 infection. Bids were opened on June 11, 2020 by the City Clerk and broadcast via an online meeting platform. The meeting was streamed live on Champaign’s cable access channel, CGTV and on the City’s website. Demolition bids were received from eight contractors. Demolition Bids and contracts are expected to be awarded on July 7, 2020, with demolition to begin in late July 2020.

    City of Champaign Announces Virtual Bidding Process

    In order to ensure bid openings for competitive bids remain open to the public in accordance with State law and City Code while abiding by COVID-19 guidelines, City bid openings will now be conducted in an electronic meeting format, similar to how Champaign City Council meetings are currently held. Prior to the closure of the City Building due to the COVID-19 pandemic, public bid openings were conducted in-person in Council Chambers. With the new electronic bid opening process, contractors and vendors will not be able to enter the City Building and hand deliver their bid packages to the Finance Department. Instead, bidders will submit bid packages in one of the following ways: • Mail to the Finance Department (102 N. Neil Street, Champaign, IL 61820), or • Submit electronically via Tyler Munis Vendor Self Service, or • Place in the drop box on the north side of the City Building, near the front entrance. After the bid deadline, Finance Department staff will collect all hard copy bid packages received via mail or the drop box. Staff will open the hard copy bid packages and electronic bid submissions at the date and time specified in the bid documents. The bid packages and electronic submissions will be opened and read aloud and telecast live on CGTV (Comcast and i3 Broadband Channel 5, U-verse Channel 99) and live streamed on the City’s website (champaignil.gov/CGTV). Bidders and the public may email questions during the bid openings to the Project Manager listed in the bid specifications. All questions will be read allowed and answered after the bid opening. To review current Invitations to Bid or bid opening results, visit champaignil.gov/bid.
