|Pursuant to the exemption of the Illinois Finance Authority (the “Authority”) from the Illinois Procurement Code (30 ILCS 500/1-10(b)(12)), the Authority is giving notice of its intent to award contracts to the underwriting firms set forth below (A) to act as Senior Managers (the “Senior Manager Approved List”) and (B) to act as Co-Managers (the” Co-Manager Approved List” and together with the Senior Manager Approved List, the “Approved Lists”), in each case for the State Revolving Fund Program. This award notice lists only thirteen (13) firms on the Senior Manager Approved List and eight (8) firms on the Co-Manager Approved List. An addendum to add the names of additional firms selected for award will be published at a later date. The Approved Lists are in alphabetical order and do not reflect ranking of scores. The Authority will select underwriters from time to time from the Approved Lists for bond issuances under the State Revolving Program, but work is not guaranteed. All firms selected for the Senior Manager Approved List will also automatically be qualified to serve as a Co-Manager in connection with the issuance of bonds. The contract start dates and end dates are estimated and will begin upon execution of a contract. |
