An RFP for provision of Campus Cable Services has been posted to the IIT Purchasing website. Here’s the link:http://web.iit.edu/sites/web/files/departments/purchasing/pdfs/Cable%20RFP%20Package%20Final.pdf
SPECIAL NOTICE to those who may receive a “Purchase Order” or “Request for Quotation” for goods and/or services from IIT:
Since July 16, 2014, IIT has been the victim of identity theft with a scammer using a fake IIT “Request for Quotation” or “Purchase Order” document indicating issuance by Frank FioRito. This is a Fraudulent Action. The “Request for Quotation” or “Purchase Order” is not issued by IIT or Frank FioRito. Please take no action on this “Request for Quotation” or “Purchase Order”.
On July 25, 2014, the scammer began to email fake purchase orders. These purchase orders are NOT LEGITIMATE. They are NOT issued by IIT and the signature is a forgery. DO NOT SUPPLY GOODS OR SERVICES IN RESPONSE TO THESE PURCHASE ORDERS.
IIT uses controlled documents for bid solicitations and for issuance of purchase orders. IIT Purchasing contact information is maintained on the IIT website and is available for verification of IIT Purchasing correspondence.
“When in doubt, check it out.”
Please continue to check the IIT Purchasing website for bid opportunities.
Please see the new bid opportunities on the IIT Purchasing Website.

Please keep coming back as new RFPs are added.
Many vendors are confused about how to best approach IIT to find opportunities. The difficulty in selling to IIT is related to the very decentralized nature of our purchasing.
Each department is responsible for the management of its annual budget.
