Bids/proposals will be submitted and reviewed electronically via the WSSC Supplier Portal.
We encourage all vendors to give themselves ample time to upload all of the appropriate documentation prior to a deadline. This will help ensure you have sufficient time to alert us in advance if technical difficulties arise. If a Supplier Portal technical issue occurs during the electronic submission, please email the “Contract Administrator” (Procurement Specialist) indicated in the solicitation. In such cases, the Procurement Office will assess whether there was an issue with the Supplier Portal which resulted in a bidder/offeror not being able to timely file a bid/proposal.
Information is readily available in the Supplier Portal and may also be accessed by the public via the Supplier Portal Internet page under Solicitations and Awards.
