CTA is pleased to announce it has engaged Bonfire to create a portal through which solicitations will be posted and where bids and proposals will be submitted. As of July 6, 2020 CTA has conducted virtual bid openings for Invitations for Bids through Zoom.
Effective for all procurements due on or after July 6, 2020, CTA has transitioned to electronic submission through the Bonfire platform. New procurements (IFBs/RFPs/LIQs) will be posted on the Bonfire platform. Companies wishing to respond to procurements must register and upload their submissions through the Bonfire portal, available at https://transitchicago.bonfirehub.com/portal/?tab=openOpportunities.
NOTE: You must register with Bonfire even if you are a current CTA registered vendor or currently do business with CTA. Hard copy responses are no longer accepted for procurements due on or after July 6, 2020. Registration is easy and free. Please be sure to select NAICS codes associated with your type of business or organization. Our solicitations will be set up using those codes and will be matched to vendors and contractors with the same codes.
All contracting opportunities for the Chicago Transit Authority are advertised in the classified section of the Chicago Tribune.
For all open public opportunities, please visit the Chicago Transit Authority Procurement Portal on Bonfire eProcurement system. Companies wishing to respond to procurements must register and upload their submissions through the Bonfire Portal. Registration is free.
