Town Transitions to BidNet Direct and State of RI Statewide Purchasing

In its efforts to provide the best services to our town at the best prices, the Town of Portsmouth is posting its solicitations (requests for proposals, invitations to bids, requests for quotes, and similar) to BidNet Direct and the State of Rhode Island's Statewide Purchasing System

There is no charge to sign up as a vendor and whenever a bid matches the vendor's level of expertise, an automatic email will alert them to the bidding opportunity - whether it is for the Town of Portsmouth, or another city or town in Rhode Island.  Adding more vendors to these purchasing programs while providing more solicitations from cities and towns creates a competitive bidding process, while ensuring businesses stay active!
