Contracts, Bids, & RFPs
The Park District of Oak Park has recently implemented a new tool to allow those interested in submitting a bid or proposal for a Park District project to view the submission requirements and project documents online as well as view the results of past bids and RFPs. Proposals for RFPs and RFQs are also able to be submitted via this tool as well. Please note, during this transition, bid packets for all open bids (as of February 7, 2014) will still be available in person only at the Park District’s administration office as previously advertised, but are listed on this site for informational purposes.
Contractual Instructor Opportunities
The Park District of Oak Park is a progressive municipal agency committed to improving the lives of our residents by providing quality parks and recreation experiences for our community. As such we are always on the lookout for exciting new recreation programs to offer to our community. In order to offer the wide variety of programs, classes, camps, leagues, and events that are currently listed in the Park District’s Program Guide, it is sometimes necessary to contract with outside vendors or individuals who have the experience and expertise to instruct these special programs.
If you have a program or service that the Park District is not currently offering that you believe would be a good fit with our community, please take some time to read through our Independent Contractor Guide. This guide was created in order to allow potential instructors to acquaint themselves with the Park District and the process of becoming an Independent Contractor with the Park District of Oak Park. If after reviewing the guide, you feel that contracting with the Park District to provide a service to the community would be a good fit for your business, you should submit a Program Proposal (included at the end of the guide) for each proposed program.
Proposals are accepted year round and should be returned to the Park District of Oak Park at 218 Madison Street, Oak Park, Illinois 60302.
