Dear Potential Supplier,
All of FIU’s current solicitations, tabulations/awards, evaluations, presentations and negotiation meetings are posted on Demandstar.com by Onvia. Solicitations are also transmitted and received electronically through Demandstar.com. FIU publicly advertises business opportunities to ensure that all suppliers have the opportunity to participate in the solicitation process fairly and openly, while encouraging competition within the supplier community. Click here for FIU’s current solicitations.
Businesses may register through our supplier registration portal by clicking here to do business with the university. FIU contracted with Onvia to transmit and receive electronically all of FIU’s current solicitation documents, meeting postings, evaluations, presentations, response receipt forms/awards and negotiation meetings. Businesses who subscribe to Onvia’s supplier list are notified by email whenever a formal /informal solicitation has been issued by the University, as well as other organizations for the commodity/services that they provide.
There is an annual fee through Demandstar.com by Onvia to complete the supplier registration on line at www.demandstar.com in order to have access to all available competitive solicitations from entities that electronically post solicitation opportunities. However, Demandstar.com will waive the fee for suppliers interested in receiving only FIU’s solicitation notices. Call 1-800-711-1712 to register.
All suppliers interested in submitting responses to any Competitive Solicitation are encouraged to download the documents and carefully review in order to prepare a response that is in line with the requirements of the Competitive Solicitation as outlined within the documents.
If you have questions concerning the Competitive Solicitation specifications please contact the Authorized Purchasing Representative listed on the Competitive Solicitation document. Only the Authorized Purchasing Representative is authorized to answer questions regarding Competitive Solicitation specifications. Any information that is used to prepare your response from a campus department or individual other than the Purchasing Services Division shall not be legally binding on the University and may cause your Competitive Solicitation to be found non-responsive.
PLEASE NOTE: IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE SUPPLIER TO CHECK THE WEBSITE FOR ANY ADDENDA OR OTHER INFORMATION THAT WOULD BE REQUIRED IN PREPARING THEIR COMPETITIVE SOLICITATION RESPONSE.
Thank you for your interest in doing business with Florida International University (FIU).
Kelly Loll, C.P.M.,
Director of Purchasing Services
