Prospective vendors are encouraged to register with the college district’s e-bidding and supplier management system.
With e-bidding, vendor’s will:
- Register to receive notifications of upcoming bids in vendor’s respective fields
- Complete and submit bids online
- Review bid tabulations and awarded bid information online
Vendor pays no fees for utilizing the online bidding system.
It will be the sole responsibility of each vendor to maintain and keep current, their company’s information on the district’s e-bidding site. In the event of a contact person name change, address, phone, etc., it will be necessary for the vendor to edit their company information on the e-bidding site. Passwords can be reset by the college district’s Purchasing staff by calling 972-758-3874. It is understood that all bid notifications will be sent to the e-mail address supplied by the vendor; therefore, in the event of an e-mail address change or ISP change, it is imperative that the vendor information be kept current. Otherwise, bid notifications will never be received by the vendor and the opportunity for bid submittal will be lost.
Collin College utilizes the District website and the McKinney Courier Gazette (www.couriergazette.com) for notification of solicitation opportunities. These are the only forms of notification authorized by the District. Collin College shall not be responsible for receipt of notification and information received from any other source other than those listed. It shall be the vendor's responsibility to verify the validity of all bid information received by sources other than those listed.
