The Procurement Department advertises all formal Invitation for Bids (IFB), Requests for Proposals (RFP), and Requests for Qualifications (RFQ) on:
Rocky Mountain ePurchasing System (RMEPS):
To ensure notification of all bidding opportunities, vendors can register at RMEPS for notification of specific project categories.
All public bid openings are open to the public and are, usually, held at Fire Station #3 located at 720 Gold Drive, Pueblo West, Colorado.
After opening, all submittals are reviewed for responsiveness to the project documents. For RFPs and RFQs, an Evaluation Committee, if needed, scores each submittal based on the evaluation criteria listed in the project documents and conducts any necessary interviews.
As a vendor, you can register with the Rocky Mountain ePurchasing Group to be sure that you see all available bids and opportunities. By selecting the automatic bid notifications, your company will receive emails when the District has a bid opportunity that matches your company's business. In addition to the District, the site handles bid opportunities, RFPs, and RFQs for other governmental agencies throughout Colorado and nationally.
