Request for Proposals/Bids
In January 2010, Upper Dublin Township began utilizing the PennBid electronic procurement Program for solicitations, RFPs, and RFQs.
Using PennBid is beneficial to both Upper Dublin Township as well as bidders. Bidder costs and effort is greatly reduced as bidders no longer need to travel for bid documents or pay fees to Upper Dublin Township to obtain bid documents.
The PennBid system is a free service to bidders. Only winning bidders pays a percentage as a fee. Bid Solicitations and Bid Results can be accessed at the PennBid web site. Once on that site, click on PennBid, then click on either the tab that reads: "SOLICITATIONS" for open bids or the tab that reads: "BIDS/AWARDS" for closed/awarded bids.
In order to submit a bid, interested bidders need to register, a free process that takes only a few minutes. Once registered, bidders have access to all bids and solicitations from every agency within PennBid, not only Upper Dublin Township. Bidders can obtain all project documents and submit and update their confidential bids online.
- To register, go to the PennBid web site and click on the Register tab.
- A "Vendor Quickstart Guide" is available to assist in registration. Go to PennBid web site and click on the Home tab. The guide can be found on the right hand side of the window.
