Bi-State Development uses an on-line bidding system called iSupplier/Sourcing. You need to be an iSupplier user with a login and password to view and bid on any BSD solicitation. This service comes at no cost to you but you must have an internet connection and an email address.BSD Open Solicitations
BSD is committed to maximizing Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) participation. All DBE firms are invited to fully participate as a primary firm. BSD strongly encourages meaningful relationships with minority, women, and socially and economically disadvantaged business owners wherever possible. These kinds of relationships will assist in establishing a level playing field. See our Supplier Diversity section for more information.
Our suppliers are required to comply with all applicable Equal Employment Opportunities laws and regulations.
All of BSD’s solicitations can be found on-line using iSupplier/Sourcing but it is much more than just a bidding program. It is available to you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You can manage your information with BSD including contact information, addresses, business classifications as well as what products and services you wish to provide to BSD. (Signing up for products and services generates emails to you whenever a solicitation is published for these products and services.)
You can access any previous quotes you submitted as well as any purchase orders with BSD, including payables information.
Below is a link to access a user guide for iSupplier/Sourcing. We suggest that you don’t download or print this guide but save the link in your Favorites for easy availability. The index in this document is tabbed; just click on a subject and it will take you to that page.

Bid Opening Procedure
Sealed bids are publicly opened at the time and place as stated in the bid document. Each bidder’s name and the total amount of the bid are announced. Anyone may attend bid opening. Attendance is not necessary to be eligible for contract award. Request for Quotations and Sealed Bid results are also available on line. See the section below Bid Tabulations. BSD’s Procurement Department will evaluate the apparent low bid as to responsiveness and responsibility. Request for Proposals are not publicly read. Details for the proposal selection process are provided in the request for proposal documents.
Click on the following link to see a listing of available bid results. Click on the PDF icon in the right hand column to display details. This information will be available as soon as the bid closes and in the case of sealed bids, the solicitation has closed and is unsealed.
Unless the bid results indicate “Awarded” these are initial bid results only and should not be construed as being final results; nor should this listing be considered a notice of award. In some instances, the apparent low bidder may not be the successful bidder. Award will be made to the lowest responsive and responsible bidder that has been determined during the bid evaluation process.
