Contracts and Bid Opportunities

Current Contracts (Products and Services)

Procurement and Payment Services has established contracts with vendors for a variety of products and services. See our Contract List (doc) for a full list of current contracts and contract periods.

Please contact the associated Procurement Administrator if you are interested in being on the bid list for a particular product or service in the future.

Pre-Qualified Contractors (Construction)

Procurement and Payment Services has established agreements and secured insurance documentation with a number of construction contractors for use by Facilities Management. The Pre-Qualified Contractor List (doc) can also be utilized by General Contractors working with Northwestern who may have sub-contracting needs.

FM Pre-Qualified Vendors (PQV) are those that have been awarded a master contract by PPS for use by Facilities Management Operations (such as Painting, HVAC, Engineering/Architectural Services, Electrical, Plumbing, etc.).  These contracts are established based on the results of a formal, competitive pre-screening process, usually conducted annually.  Vendors that are awarded contracts may then be provided with an opportunity to bid on individual construction projects over $10,000. 

For FM related projects, contractors or consultants interested in doing business with the University can fill out the attached Construction Vendor Information Form  (pdf) and email it back to procurement@northwestern.edu or fax it to 847-467-5400.  Please note that submitting this form does not automatically make you a FM PQV.

Construction projects are handled by NU Facilities Management Operations and Design & Construction.  You may find project information on their website:  www.northwestern.edu/fm

Please contact Laura Norton with any questions regarding pre-qualified contractors.
