Welcome to State of Illinois iBid 3.0. 11/21/2011
To our valued iBid Customers:

On Monday, November 21, 2011, the Illinois Department of Central Management Services plans to release a new version of its successful on-line surplus property auction website: iBid 3.0.

As a current bidder, there’s nothing you need to do. All of your customer log-in information, passwords, point of contact information such as address/phone will be automatically transferred and installed. You will not need to re-register, but if you experience problems, please contact: Virgil Hall (iBid Coordinator) @ (217) 836-3089, or virgil.hall@illinois.gov.

CMS believes this new website will provide bidders with a better experience… and features a more eye-catching design—plus, the following enhanced features:

* new “location map” to enable winning bidders to automatically map routes and directions to pickup awarded items sold from various locations across the state;
* a new personalized “dashboard” enabling bidders to customize their bidding profile and options;
* to keep bidders informed about new items recently posted, a “Posting List” now highlights the ten most recently added items being offered for sale so that you know when new items are sold;
* and finally, a more powerful auction search feature will enable quicker results of interested items.


As always, we appreciate your feedback, so let us know if you like the new version. Please visit our CMS website to post your comments at: http://www2.illinois.gov/cms/About/Pages/ClientServicesFeedback.aspx

Website changes can be frustrating and confusing, but we believe that this upgrade is easy to use and will make for a much nicer bidding experience.

Thanks for participating in CMS’ Surplus Property auctions! Once again, if you experience any problems or have questions, please email virgil.hall@illinois.gov or call (217) 836-3089.
