ALL SUBMISSIONS DURING THE COVID 19 PERIOD OF DISTRICT BUILDING SHUTDOWN MUST BE VIA E-SUBMISSIONS
As District buildings are closed to the public, the P&CS Department for SPPS has created a process to electronically submit bids/proposals during the current distruption caused by COVID 19. Vendors must submit all bids/propoasals via the District's e-solicitation process. A link will be provided on all event postings on the www.spps.org/purchasing website. There is also a quick reference guide with each event, and at the link below.
We all appreciate the support offered by all vendors in this unprecedented times.
PLEASE NOTE: EFFECTIVE 3/18/2020

This will affect the opening of solicitations published by the Purchasing & Contract Services (“P&CS”) department for the District. The opening of bids/submissions for these events will continue, without the ability for the public to attend. All details of the submitted bid tabulations will be published no later than 24 hours after the opening on the www.spps.org/purchasing site.
Through Thursday 3/19/2020, vendors may still drop off submissions in person at the P&CS offices at the District building located at . P&CS offices are located on the ground level; vendors should use main entrance to the building and follow directions. Submissions can also be made via mail or package delivery such as USPS, UPS, FedEx, etc. However, it is vendor’s responsibility to assure timely submission. Please note the date and time of bids due has not been changed.
Going forward with bid events after Thursday 3/19/2020, all bid/proposal submissions will need to be in an electronic format while the closure of District buildings is in effect. P&CS is working hard to get the system in place to make this process happen. Please look for more information in the coming days on how this process will take place.
