Reminder of Crucial Changes:
- Lead Item Pricing - New fee schedule, and bidders may have to bid a higher amount on the lead item due to the impact on the non-lead items.
- Bid Surety Bonds are now required.
- New product categories added - now a total of 16 product categories.
What To Do Now:
- ALL potential bidding companies must register and create a user ID and password to be eligible for the program.
- Follow the instructions within the RFB to review and complete all required input, documentation, and procedures.
