Invitation for Bid and related Bid and Contract Documents for Installation of Solar Equipment and Panels

From Indianapolis Public Transportation Corporation (IndyGo)

Indianapolis Public Transportation Corporation (IPTC)


The Indianapolis Public Transportation Corporation d/b/a IndyGo (“IPTC”) will be releasing an Invitation for Bid and related Bid and Contract Documents (“Solicitation Documents”) for installation of solar equipment and panels. 

By law, transit agencies such as IPTC are required to protect sensitive security information (“SSI”).  SSI is any information whose disclosure may compromise the security of the traveling public, transit employees or transit infrastructure. Certain pages that are included in the architectural/engineering and design documents and specifications for the Project contain SSI.  Protecting SSI means restricting its distribution and controlling access to it.  Only persons with a “need to know” may access SSI.  Potential bidders for this Project, including subcontractors, regardless of whether such potential bidder ultimately bids on the Project, are considered individuals/entities with a “need to know” this SSI.

To access Solicitation Documents containing SSI:

Because IPTC must restrict access to and distribution of SSI, IPTC will be posting the Solicitation Documents to an online, secure document sharing site.  In order to obtain access to the secure document sharing site, potential bidders will be required to execute a non-disclosure agreement which addresses the appropriate handling, storage, use, reproduction, transmittal and destruction of the SSI (“NDA”).  Solicitation Documents containing SSI will only be released to those executing an NDA.  All prime bidders to IPTC must execute an NDA.

The required NDA is available for download now on the IPTC website at: and may be returned at any time prior to the date of Bid Opening to the IPTC Procurement Department via email to  A complete package of the Solicitation Documents (SSI and non-SSI) will be posted to a secure documents sharing site.  Printing of documents containing SSI will be available to authorized vendors at vendors’ expense through Marbaugh Reprographics at 801 North Capitol Avenue, Indianapolis, IN 46204 (Phone: 317-631-1000). 

Solicitation Documents are expected to be available March 16, 2015.
