Vendor Registration for Competitive Events
The process of registering for future competitive bid notifications will be accomplished through Bid Express. First-time visitors will need to create a vendor account by clicking on the Free Vendor Signup button on the right-hand side of the page (see below).
Registration and Digital ID creation are free. It can take up to five business days to process your Digital ID and it is highly recommended that a Digital ID be enabled 48 hours in advance of submitting an electronic bid. Please plan accordingly. A fee of $25 will be incurred for those who wish to bid electronically on a pay-per solicitation basis; alternatively, you may subscribe for $50 per month to have access to all solicitations and email notifications.
Once you sign-up, you will receive an email from Info Tech Service Team firstname.lastname@example.org titled Action required to Activate your Info Tech Digital ID. Follow the instructions in the email to complete the process.
When a competitive event is posted to the system, it will be assigned to a category that best describes the product or service that the University is requesting. The system will search for registered/subscribed vendors in that particular category and will email a notification to those vendors. The vendor can also search all solicitations posted to Bid Express by clicking on the Solicitations tab in Bid Express.
When a competitive award is made, the results will be posted on the University Competitive Events website.
