Quality Based Selection Process

Illinois State University uses a Quality Based Selection Process in accordance with the State of Illinois (Public Act 87-673). This process will be used for selecting and engaging the services of professional planning, design and construction consultants, architects, engineers, and land surveyors.

Quality Based Selection project solicitations are publicly advertised on the Illinois Public Higher Education Procurement Bulletin web site. The Quality Based Selection advertisement defines a scope of work for services and specific requirements for submitting qualifications. Selection will be based upon the professional qualifications of the consultant to provide services as defined in the advertisement. Qualifications are determined by the content of the submission and potential interviews. Fees will be negotiated after selection of the consultant. This process is applicable for CDB projects that have been legislatively appropriated to the University. For CDB projects, Illinois State University will manage the Quality Based Selection process and the CDB will approve the selection and contract with the consultant.
