The City of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County now have the ability to post Invitation to Bid (ITB) and Request for Proposal (RFP) on the North Carolina Interactive Purchasing System. The City and County are the first local government entities to be given this opportunity. The postings of City and County bids and proposals will provide greater exposure to possible vendors. The increase in exposure will come from the "push technology" that the state system utilizes. When a bid or proposal is posted to the system, an e-mail is automatically sent to each vendor that is registered on the state system and has indicated interest in receiving notification for each category.
Vendors will be notified of the City or County bids just like they are of State bids for the same category. This system will be used along with all other traditional notification methods. All items, including the Adobe Acrobat reader needed to read bids and proposals are located on the state site at:
