Illinois Procurement Gateway
The State of Illinois Chief Procurement Office is pleased to welcome you to our Illinois Procurement Gateway (IPG) for the streamlined process of Vendor Enrollment and Registration.
The IPG is a web based system that serves as the primary location for entering, organizing, and reviewing vendor information. The IPG allows prospective vendors to provide disclosures, registrations, and other documentation needed to do business with a State agency or university in advance of any particular procurement.
The State uses information submitted through the IPG to prequalify vendors in advance of submitting bids and offers for contracts. Upon satisfactory enrollment, vendors will receive a registration number that may be used in place of paper submission of required forms.
The system includes the following key features:
- Automated online vendor registration
- Online directory of registered vendors with search capabilities
- Elimination of the need to submit multiple paper-based forms
To work with the state universities and agencies to meet their procurement needs while exercising independent authority, oversight and approval to ensure and continuously improve compliance with law, fair treatment, need-based decision-making, diversity, integrity, transparency and value.
