State Procurement Opportunities
As of April 1, 1997 State law requires that State Bids must be solicited from vendors by computer, rather than by mail and/or print advertisements. The address on the Internet is www.purchasing.ri.gov. It is therefore essential that you take a few minutes to register your company online in order to access purchasing opportunities with the State of Rhode Island and its quasi-state agencies. It is important to note that your firm does not need to be certified as a Minority Business Enterprise, Women Business Enterprise, or Disadvantaged Business Enterprise to access the Rhode Island Vendor Information program.
