  3. Login (if you haven't already)

    Clicking on the Bid from the search page will cause the supplier login page to be displayed (if you haven't logged in already). Enter your username (email address) and password. You will be taken to the Bid Documents page for the bid you selected.

  4. Place online bid.

    If online bidding is available for the bid you've selected, a link will be displayed below the bid documents called "Place Online Bid".

    Why not all bids? We expect all bids to have the online bidding option soon. Bids that are currently in progress will only be available for online bidding if approved and set up by the Buyer for that bid. This is done on a per bid basis and is determined by the Purchasing department.

Additional Benefits

The online bidding page allows you to not only fill out the Bid Form online. It also provides you with one convenient place to:

  • View and download required forms and documents
  • Upload electronic copies of required forms and documents
  • Enter different but equivalent items on the Bid Form
  • Submit multiple bids
  • Withdraw your bid
