University of Illinois Transitioning to Electronic Bid Delivery

In response to Governor J.B. Pritzker’s Executive Order for a statewide shelter-in-place mandate and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for implementing social-distancing strategies to minimize the impact of the COVID-19 virus across the State of Illinois, the University of Illinois System is transitioning from the traditional construction hard copy bid delivery to electronic bid delivery.

Bidders will combine all required bid documents into a single PDF file and upload the file electronically into the PRZM system via a web link identified in the bidding documents.

To facilitate practice in uploading into the PRZM system, you may practice submitting a test electronic bid for a Division of Work by going to

Then click on “Xavier Commons e-bid Test Project”, fill in your bidder information and submit a ‘test’ bid. This practice test project will remain open until at least the end of May, 2020.

PLEASE NOTE: The above “test” bid site, simulated to be on the Urbana-Champaign campus, is for bidders use to practice only. All bidders should submit their actual bids based on the information contained in the appropriate projects’ bidding documents.
