eSourcing Supplier and Bidder Notice
The Department of Administrative Services (DAS) is required, by law, to advertise intended purchases for the benefit of competing persons producing or dealing in the supplies or services to be purchased. These intended purchases are listed in an electronic Bid Bulletin maintained on the Procurement Services website and may be accessed by any interested party.
As a courtesy, DAS will provide electronic notice of such purchases to any bidder/supplier who has registered with DAS for the respective supplies or services. This registration does not include opportunities for the architectural, engineering and construction industry. To obtain more information on current bid opportunities for that area please visit the Ohio Facilities Construction Commision.
The Office of Procurement Services is the division of DAS responsible for the registration process. Please provide all required information to complete the application process.
The State of Ohio is currently in the process of updating its financial system which includes the website used to post electronic bid opportunities.
Along with this effort, the state is requesting all current companies who are registered as Bidders register their companies as Suppliers (formerly known as Vendors) in the new system.
While the new system is not currently available, you can still register your company as a Supplier by completing the required forms and remitting to Ohio Shared Services:
- Supplier Information Form (OBM-5657)
- IRS Form W-9
- Authorization Agreement for Direct Deposit of EFT Payments
Attn: Supplier Operations
P.O. Box 182880
Columbus, OH 43218-2880

Once your company is registered as a Supplier, your bidder account will be inactivated and all new business with the state will be through your newly created Supplier account.
