The City of Pittsburgh is implementing a new, secure, user-friendly, web-based eProcurement system. The system will help to streamline procurement processes as well as offer many new features and expanded services, including:
Go live began on December 9th, 2016. All previous vendors who sell products and/or services to the City of Pittsburgh and other local agencies will need to register with the site to begin bidding on opportunities listed on the site. All new vendors that wish to bid on future opportunities will need to register as well. No awards can be made without a vendor registration profile set up. Click on the Registration tab to begin your vendor profile set up. If there are any questions regarding Vendor Registration, please contact WebProcure.Support@perfect.com.
At this time only the vendor registration portion of the new bid tool is active so please get set up now. The Login feature to the bid tool will be available in January 2017.
During the transition to the new system the City of Pittsburgh will still be utilizing the Beacon website so look for current opportunities there and check back with the Pittsburgh Purchasing site for new solicitations scheduled for mid to late January 2017! Current opportunities can be found here at Beacon.
The City of Pittsburgh will begin posting new solicitations in the Bid Opportunities tab in January for all to view. Only registered vendors will be able to bid on new opportunities with the City so do not hesitate to get set up.
Vendors can currently register with the City of Pittsburgh but will not be able to Login and access the Vendor Management function until 2017.
