Tips on Doing Business With The State of Alabama


We look forward to doing business with you. We are interested in your thoughts and concerns about the State purchasing process. Vendor feedback is valued. Feel free to write or call with your comments and questions. 
  1. Be sure your firm�s name is on the bid list with the correct class/sub-classes. Keep your application current with any changes.
     
  2. Read the bid documents thoroughly and follow all instructions, terms, and conditions. Failure to do so will be at the bidder�s risk.
     
  3. Be sure bid is submitted on or before the receive date and time. Be sure the envelope shows the bid number and opening date.
     
  4. Attend bid openings, to see what the competition is doing, since bid results are not given over the telephone or in writing. You may go to our web site to view the bid responses which are posted for sixty (60) days from the bid opening date.
     
  5. Visit, write, or call the various state agencies to learn of their needs and to introduce your company and products.
     
  6. Ask questions.
