Electronic Bidding

The University of Michigan has adopted a new online sourcing system to request quotes, proposals and information from existing and potential suppliers. The new system has replaced the manual bidding process used in the past and will allow suppliers that have been invited by procurement to respond to bid events and to:

  • Participate in bid events via this online sourcing platform
  • Respond to bid requests, ask questions, and adjust bids electronically
  • Review events you are currently participating in and your bid history


For further assistance please email the procurement agent listed on the invitation.


How do I get access to the system?

If you have been selected to participate in an event, you will receive a message directly from the procurement agent responsible for the bid and a system-generated email invitation to the sourcing event. This email will contain the instructions necessary to either register your account or access your bid event. 

If you are a new supplier who wishes to register to be a potential bidder, see the section for New Suppliers.
