Publication of Names of Apparent Owners of Abandoned Property for Lake County on February 11, 2006
I. Mandatory Requirements
The Illinois Uniform Disposition of Unclaimed Property Act requires the Office of the Illinois State Treasurer to notify Illinois residents who appear to be owners of Abandoned Property of that fact. To this end, the Treasurer is requesting bids from Vendors which publish an English Language newspaper of general circulation in Lake County, Illinois, to publish the names and addresses of persons appearing to be owners of Abandoned Property with last known addresses in Lake County in Illinois.
The approximate number of such names and addresses is in a range of 2,900 – 3,500. The information will be forwarded to the successful Vendor along with a layout for the front panel which may include text, photographs, graphics and inquiry form.
Names are to appear in bold type.
Vendor shall be given data supplied by the Treasurer, which must appear along with the names and addresses of the apparent owners of Abandoned Property in the Saturday, February 11, 2006 edition of Vendor’s newspaper.
Vendor shall provide the Treasurer with two (2) tear sheets reflecting the name of Vendor’s newspaper, date of publication and the “NOTICE OF NAME OF PERSONS APPEARING TO BE OWNERS OF ABANDONED PROPERTY” and return it to the Treasurer along with any material provided to Vendor relative to the listing of such names of apparent owners of Abandoned Property.
Vendor must also include the total Saturday circulation information which may be used as an element in the evaluation process.
Vendor shall submit a pricing proposal which details the way in which charges are calculated e.g. (per name, per column inch, etc.)
