The System has adopted an eBid system for procurement, and all 14 System universities are using this site for their primary means of project contract solicitations. Design professional services and construction contract opportunities are posted here, along with a multitude of regular procurements for supplies and services. Firms may register on the site for free, and get e-updates when new solicitations are posted within their NIGP categories.
Additionally, universities sometimes use their own university web sites, and/or the PA eMarketplace, as secondary means of advertisement.
PA eMarketplace is the PA Department of General Services (DGS) site for public notice for procurement opportunities. Most System universities post their advertisements there, as well as on the eProcurement Exchange.
DGS posts their construction bid opportunities on eMarketplace.
DGS posts their design professional opportunities on their own DGS Public Works web site and on the PA eMarketplace.
