All vendors should register at the above website to receive electronic notification of solicitations. However as noted by the
Division of Purchase and Contract, “Being a registered vendor does NOT guarantee the receipt of electronic notification for
all applicable solicitations. Vendors must routinely check the Interactive Purchasing System Bid site for a listing of current
business opportunities from the Division of Purchase and Contract and other agencies required to post certain solicitations
to this system. The Division of Purchase and Contract shall not be responsible if a vendor does not receive an electronic
notification for any particular solicitation. This notification is provided as a convenience only. The Division of Purchase and Contract
neither accepts nor assumes responsibility for electronic notification under all circumstances.”
All vendors should register at the above website to become a “registered vendor” with the State of North Carolina.
This is necessary to allow agencies the ability to process purchase orders with “registered Vendors” through the NC Electronic
Purchasing System. Additionally registration allows vendors to receive agency notifications for eQuotes or bid solicitations which have been
processed through the Electronic Purchasing System.
