Dear St. Lawrence County Vendor,
In an effort to improve efficiency, St. Lawrence County will be utilizing the Empire State Bid System to distribute bids to our vendors. This system will provide you with convenient online access to all bid information for St. Lawrence County and 158 other local agencies throughout New York. By utilizing the Empire State Bid System, the County will enhance access to our bid opportunities. All other aspects of the bid process will remain the same; including Legal Notices placed in our local papers and bids being submitted to the Purchasing Department at the County Courthouse in Canton, NY.
It’s easy to participate in future bid opportunities from both St. Lawrence County and other participating agencies—simply register online. To register, visit www.empirestatebidsystem.com, use the “Vendor Registration” link and complete your registration. If you are currently registered as a Vendor on this system with another participating local agency, you do not need to register again.
There is no cost for you to register and retrieve bid documents from the Empire State Bid System. You can access answers to frequently asked questions by visiting http://www.empirestatebidsystem.com/FAQ.asp. After registering, I would encourage you to browse bid opportunities from other participating agencies. As a vendor, you will find the ability to go to one website to view bid opportunities from all participating agencies a very valuable tool to increase your sales opportunities.
We thank you for your cooperation and welcome your participation! If you need help registering, please call the support department at BidNet toll free 1-800-835-4603.
