The Illinois Department of Central Management Services is giving notice of intent to award a contract to Level 3 for In-Line Amplification Sites for the State owned Fiber Project.

Key Information

Notice Type:Canceled Notice

Notice Expiration Date:11/26/2009
The current fiber assets owned by the State to be used for this project are from Williams. This fiber is connected to In-Line Amplification (ILA) sites (environmentally controlled huts located along I-55) owned and managed by Level 3 (Williams Communications, Inc changed their name to WilTel and then purchased Level 3).
The State of Illinois requires access to these fibers along the path and will need to have equipment in an environmentally controlled and managed environment. Level3 already has environmentally controlled buildings at each of the sites that the State requires and will not need to build. Utilizing these existing buildings saves the State money by eliminating the need to construct such In-Line Amplification buildings.

Any challenge to this Notice must be submitted in writing within 14 days of the published date and to the person identified below. Late challenges will not be considered. Only a challenge with documentation which sufficiently demonstrates and proves a prospective vendor’s ability to meet all specifications and other requirements of the Agency making the award will be considered. The documentation must indicate a price equal to or lower than the amount shown in this Notice.
