The Bid Information and Distribution System is a centralized, web-based system through which all Colorado state agencies may publish bid solicitation documents, i.e., Documented Quote, Invitation for Bid, Request for Proposals. Also published on BIDS, are Request for Information, Proposed Sole Source and bid-award notices made under solicitations. All BIDS notices are available for public view on the Rocky Mountain Bids web site and BIDS registered vendors access complete solicitation documents.
Western Procurement will publish all its bid solicitations (above $25,000 for goods and $25,000 for services) on Rocky Mountain Bids and may also use other methods of notification. Vendors’ registration in Rocky Mountain Bids is strongly encouraged and recommended but is not required for consideration of award by Western Procurement.
Public view of all BIDS Notices, vendor registration, and registered vendors’ access to solicitation documents are found on the Rocky Mountain Bids website:
BIDS registration gives vendors access to all Colorado agencies’ published bid solicitation documents and optional automatic notification of all bids published in the commodity/service categories the vendor selects for its business. Solicitation documents attached to BIDS Notices are accessed by registered BIDS vendors with a “Username” and “Password” required for registered BIDS vendors. The $40 annual fee must be received to register a vendor before the bid due date and time to be considered for a bid award by those agencies that require BIDS registration.
The Rocky Mountain Bids help desk number is 800.835.4603 for assistance.
