IDNR to Host Vendor Conference in Southern Illinois Later This Month

SPRINGFIELD — The Illinois Department of Natural Resources will host a mandatory vendor conference on Thurs., June 27. The conference is for vendors interested in submitting bids for reconstruction and facilities operations at the Wayne Fitzjerrell State Recreation Area near Whittington.

IDNR staff will be on hand to answer questions regarding the agency’s recently issued request for proposal, as well as options and incentives available for interested vendors.

The request for proposal, which was issued June 12, allows for one vendor or multiple vendors to take on different areas of the state recreation area instead of requiring one vendor to manage all facilities. Additional cash incentives also are available. The meeting will begin at 11 am.
