Purchasing maintains a list of procurement requests on behalf of state agency for issuance to the public. These procurements offer evaluation scoring consideration to vendors who propose qualified Missouri-certified MBE/WBE participation and Missouri Service Disabled Veteran Business Enterprises (SDVE) as part of their proposed solution in their procurement response. This notification provides an opportunity for vendors to network and identify potentially viable MBE/WBE/SDVE participation solutions either by means of direct participation or through partnering arrangements.
The Awarded Bid & Contract Document Search and Retrieval System provides access to public record information regarding State of Missouri contracts, awarded bid/solicitation documents, bid abstracts, bid correspondence, and other related documents. This system includes documents only for the Office of Administration, Division of Purchasing bids and contracts.
