Marketing Your Products or Services
Prospective suppliers are encouraged to send a catalog, line card, or other listing of products/services offered. Due to the large number of vendors listed on some categories it is not possible to allow vendors to bid on everything that is solicited by the Contracting and Purchasing Dept. It's our intention to make the selection process as fair as possible. If you decide to bid, we cannot help you prepare your bid. We can, answer questions to help you better understand what is required.
