BE-83: The Officer of the Bidder that we plan to have sign the contracts is travelling during the planned contract execution period. We have two questions: 1. Is it possible to receive the contracts from the Companies prior to the Illinois Commerce Commission (“ICC”) decision on the results of the procurement events? 2. If not, can we provide scanned copies of the signature pages of the contracts to the Companies?
No, it is not possible to receive the contracts from the Companies prior to the ICC decision on the results of the procurement events.
The Companies do not require signatures in hard copy and will accept scanned documents. It is expected that, if a Bidder has Bids for a procurement event that are approved by the ICC, the Officer of the Bidder named in the Part 1 Proposal would sign the applicable supplier contract. Should the Officer of the Bidder not be available to sign for this purpose, the Bidder will advise the applicable Company of this fact. The Bidder will name another individual to sign and the Bidder will confirm that this individual is empowered to undertake contracts and bind the Bidder.
