Transparency Portal

The Forest Preserve District of DuPage County is committed to open government. This portal is a centralized source for our most frequently requested information, including the board of commissioners’ actions, budgets and financial allocation, and contacts.

We will work to improve this information to ensure DuPage County’s residents remain confident about the stewardship of their tax dollars.

Bids, Proposals, and Contracts

While Forest Preserve District employees perform land and facilities’ maintenance, we often employ contractors for large-scale construction or restoration projects.

The District purchases required goods and services in conformance with Illinois state law, the DuPage County Forest Preserve Purchasing Ordinance, related resolutions of the board of commissioners, and administrative policies. The District makes requirements for purchases under $30,000 in accordance with established procedures for small-dollar purchases and informal quotations. For purchases over $30,000, it advertises formal bid announcements in local newspapers and also lists them on DemandStar.

The District’s board of commissioners reviews contracts at its planning sessions and board meetings. Contracts, with agenda items and supplemental documentation, are available at our board meetings page. 

The board of commissioners reserves the right to reject any or all bids and waive technicalities.
