Working with IU as a consultant or a contractor

If you’re interested in providing architectural or engineering design services for IU, please email and include your firm’s name, location, contact information, and website to receive additional instructions.

Bids, results, and awards

You can view projects currently advertised for bid, as well as bid results and awards, at IU Plan Room.


We use e-Builder—a construction project management system—to track projects managed by IU Capital Projects.

Consultants and contractors will be given access to individual projects within e-Builder by the appropriate IU project manager.

Floor plans in e-Builder

Relevant floor plans for IU projects will be stored in e-Builder for secure download by request. Contact the IU project manager assigned to your project to request having additional floor plans added to e-Builder.

CAD drawings are not released by the Office of the Vice President for Capital Planning and Facilities. Special requests can be made in writing to the Office of Space Planning (Karen Buckrop and Janelle Reeves) if special consideration is desired.

Front-end documents

e-Builder users can access front-end documents for construction and furniture via the zIUResources-BL project.

Procurement front-end document templates (bid form, general conditions, etc.) may be requested by emailing

If you do not use e-Builder, you may request front-end documentation by emailing and including the IU project number and project title in the message.

Access the e-Builder system


Project document templates (e.g., CCD log, RFI, PCO log) are available through e-Builder in the zIUResources-BL project.
