The N.C. Department of Information Technology’s Statewide IT Procurement Office works with many different vendors across the state to deliver technology goods and services for state agencies, local governments and community colleges.
As a first step to conducting business with the state, vendors should register for the North Carolina electronic vendor portal, which allows them to:
- Participate in the electronic procurement process
- Participate in the state’sHistorically Underutilized Business Program
- Participate in the North Carolina Small Business Enterprise Program
- Receive information on upcoming bids
In the portal, vendors can register for all applicable commodities, goods and services. Registered vendors also receive vital information about bid opportunities that match their interests. In most cases, vendors also submit proposals using the portal.
