Contracting and Bids
Electronic Notification of Solicitations for Bids
All vendors should register at the above website to receive electronic notification of solicitations. However as noted by the Division of Purchase and Contract, “Being a registered vendor does NOT guarantee the receipt of electronic notification for all applicable solicitations. Vendors must routinely check the Interactive Purchasing System Bid site for a listing of current business opportunities with the Division of Purchase and Contract and other agencies required to post certain solicitations to this system. The Division of Purchase and Contract shall not be responsible if a vendor does not receive an electronic notification for any particular solicitation. This notification is provided as a convenience only. The Division of Purchase and Contract neither accepts nor assumes responsibility for electronic notification under all circumstances.”
Registration in E-Procurement System
All vendors should register at the above website to become a “registered vendor” with the State of North Carolina. This is necessary to allow agencies the ability to process purchase orders with “registered Vendors” through the NC Electronic Purchasing System. Additionally registration allows vendors to receive agency notifications for eQuotes or bid solicitations which have been processed through the Electronic Purchasing System.
