The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) has recently launched an electronic bid system, or "eBid", for selected solicitations of more than $100,000. The system supplements eQuote, SEPTA's existing system for solicitations less than $100,000.
The authority will now notify vendors about solicitations of more than $100,000 through its Electronic Procurement System, with notices continuing to be published on SEPTA's website and in local newspapers. Once a company is registered on the new eBid system, it will receive electronic notifications for new procurement opportunities.
SEPTA is also providing opportunities for local businesses to connect with it and with each other at a "Meet the Primes" Networking Event at SEPTA Headquarters on Tuesday, April 25. The event will hold business-focused presentations, followed by networking. Representatives from SEPTA's Procurement and Supply Chain Management Department and Engineering, Maintenance and Construction Division will attend. Further information is available on SEPTA’s website.
