How can I receive information on Illinois Procurement Opportunities?


State of Illinois 2023 Buying Plan - 1st Quarter

On behalf of nearly 20 state agencies, Central Management Services (CMS) launched the State of Illinois’ Quarterly Buying Plan. The Plan is designed to serve as a single-destination for useful information to the State’s vendor community and to make vendors aware of the upcoming purchasing needs for a range of agencies. This initiative is led by the Bureau of Strategic Sourcing (BoSS) team, who is committed to expanding the content of the document so that vendors interested in providing their goods and/or services to the State are informed, prepared, and ready to respond to the State’s solicitations.

In addition to the quarterly forecast of upcoming opportunities, the most recent addition of the Plan features sections on doing business with the State, small and disadvantaged business programs, an overview of registration and pre-qualification requirements and how to access technical assistance.
