Rockville to Debut eSourcing Tools for Vendors Doing Business With City Government

Rockville’s Procurement Division is scheduled to debut a new collaboration portal this month offering tools that will make it easier for vendors to do business with the city.

The eSourcing and Vendor Collaboration Portal, scheduled to launch Friday, April 15, allows vendors to submit electronic bids and proposals and conduct procurement via an online portal at

The Vendor Collaboration Portal will be the only means of submitting bids and proposals to the city. Hard copy and emailed bids or proposals will no longer be accepted.

Vendors will find instructions for setting up their Vendor Collaboration Portal account and registering to access bidding opportunities with the city via the web. A documents library within the Vendor Collaboration Portal will offer a full user manual with detailed instructions on how to navigate the system.

The Vendor Collaboration Portal offers vendors the convenience of a single resource for updating their information, reviewing active bid opportunities, managing contract documents and registering to receive bid notifications for goods or services they may provide.

The portal makes the city’s bidding process more efficient and less time intensive, as bidders no longer need to visit the city’s procurement office to submit bids in person, saving them the cost of delivery services, paper, envelopes, printing and packaging, time and vehicle expenses.
