Procurement Services uses Bonfire for its Vendor Management and Sourcing application.
All solicitations are advertised on Bonfire.
If you wish to be considered for a current or future solicitation, please register
through the Bonfire link.
It is the responsibility of the vendor to make themselves knowledgeable about the
dates and times specified in the solicitation. Solicitation opening dates and times
are strictly adhered to.
Furthermore, addenda are issued by the Office of Procurement Services only. Solicitation
responses will only be accepted by the Office of Procurement Services if received
and date-time stamped in the Procurement Office by no later than the opening time
and date of the solicitation; receipt by any other department after the due date and
time will not be recognized as timely and will be returned, unopened, to the sender.
Solicitations sent via UPS/FedEx and United States Mail are first received by the
Receiving Department and/or Postal Department, respectively; they must then deliver
to the Office of Procurement Services. This is not an instantaneous procedure, therefore,
it is critical that the sender allow sufficient time for all of this to occur and
to ensure a timely receipt by the Office of the Procurement Services.
When requesting a copy of a solicitation, please indicate the specific solicitation
name and number. It is the responsibility of intended vendors to contact the appropriate agent upon
downloading a document to ensure that you receive any addendums that may be issued.
Failure to do so may result in the rejection of your response.
