To be regularly notified of County bid solicitations you must register as a vendor. During registration, select the commodity codes that match the goods or services you provide. When a solicitation opens that meets your selection criteria, you will receive notification. To register with the County's bid notification service provider Public Purchase, follow the steps indicated in the Public Purchase Vendor Registration & Instructions located at the web address below. Please note that while Public Purchase has multiple service offerings, there is no fee to register, receive or respond to solicitations released from the County of Maui. While the County has selected Public Purchase to provide County bid processing, this is not an endorsement of other Public Purchase services or offerings.
Beginning July 1, 2015, the County of Maui will be transitioning onto a new and improved on-line bidding system provided by Public Purchase. While the County is taking steps to make this transition as simple as possible for Vendors, Vendors need to be aware that during the transition period the County will be utilizing two Systems: 1.Prior to 6/30/16, the titles of solicitations over $25,000 will still be shown on the County of Maui, Purchasing webpage. 2.Solicitations that open after 6/30/16 will only be viewable and processed through the New On-Line Bidding System (Public Purchase). 3.Other solicitations under $25,000 will only be shown on Public Purchase.
