Bidders List Application and Maintenance

The Bidders List is used by executive branch agencies and institutions when issuing formal solicitations for goods and services. Check the Bidder Services Main Menu to see if your company is a registered bidder or view solicitations and state contracts. 

Bidders List Registration

Step 1: Secretary of State Registration

Most businesses must be registered and in good standing with the North Dakota Secretary of State. Secretary of State registration varies by business type. Sole Proprietors and General Partnerships doing business in their full personal names only are not required to register.

Visit the Secretary of State website, Vendor Registration, for forms, instructions, and fees.

Step 2: On-line Bidder Registration

Once registration requirements with the Secretary of State have been met, businesses should "Register as a Bidder" with the State Procurement, Vendor Registry Office. The registration process consists of six short pages which provide necessary information to the Vendor Registry Office.  All registrations will be reviewed and go through the approval process.

Placement on the Bidders List does not guarantee a notice will be received for every solicitation over the amount established for small purchases.

Click "Register as a Bidder" to submit on-line bidder list application.

Step 3: On-line Bidder Maintenance

An approved bidder registration may login to the Portal to review and update bidder information. Current contact information and properly selected commodity codes will maximize your opportunity to receive notices of bidding opportunities. Updates to bidder profile information may include address(s), contact(s), and commodity codes (goods and services) your business provides.

  • Login to maintain bidder profile.

  • If your organization does not have an existing USER ID for on-line maintenance of your bidder profile, you may request one.
