Bidders List Application and Maintenance

The Bidders List is used by executive branch agencies and institutions when issuing solicitations for goods and services $50,000 and over. 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 for a link to the FirstStop online registration system and tutorials.

  • Check the Business Records database to see if your company is registered.
  • If you need to register, fees apply.
  • Contact the Secretary of State or 701.328.2904 for assistance.

Step 2: On-line Bidder Registration

After completing Secretary of Registration requirements, you must complete the online Bidders List application process.  Placement on the Bidders List does not guarantee a notice will be received for every solicitation over the amount established for small purchases.

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.
