February 13, 2019

The State Universities Retirement System (SURS) is soliciting proposals from qualified firms to provide a complete and operational low voltage network (also referred to as “structured network cabling system”). This includes labor, materials, transportation, equipment, and miscellaneous services required to accomplish this result for a newly-renovated work space located at 1801 Fox Drive, Champaign, IL. We are looking for a firm to remove all existing cabling and to install, test and certify new Cat6A cabling with associated RJ45 and RJ11 jacks per the cabling floor plan included with this RFP. This will include a combination of new and existing cable drops. Pathways for new cable drops will be provided by the general contractor (G/C).

SURS will execute a fixed price contract with the selected firm for the project. In addition to the fixed-cost proposal provided in response to this RFP, firms should also submit a proposed hourly rate for any unexpected or additional work that SURS may require during or after the project is complete.
