​​​​​​​​​​The State System uses ProcureWare for managing its supplier selection and pre-qualification through online bidding, analysis and award. In order to provide fair, open and efficient opportunities for all suppliers interested in doing business with the State System, we ask all potential suppliers to register at our eProcurement Exchange. Registration is free and takes only a few minutes to complete. Once registered, suppliers may view solicitation documents, receive solicitation notifications, and submit confidential online bids and proposals.​​
