Frequently Asked Questions


  1. Are Invitations to Bid available on Purchasing's web site?
    Yes.  They are located under OPEN ITB’s.  Click on OPEN ITB’s and see all of the ITB’s currently available for suppliers to submit a bid.  The OPEN ITB’s are listed by bid opening date.  You should check back often as ITB’s are added daily. 

    If you do find an ITB you would like to bid on, click on the ITB number.  There you will be informed of any addendums and/or any attachments for the ITB.  You MUST become a registered vendor in order to print the ITB, addendum(s), attachment(s), or a COMPLETE COPY of the ITB which will include all attachments and addendums.  It is the vendor's responsibility to check back and see if there have been addendums or changes made to the ITB.
