ESC6 offers districts access to electronic procurement through the ESC6 eBid Marketplace. Districts may utilize the ESC6 Marketplace to facilitate bid events and/or benefit from the supplier database and messaging functionality. The supplier registration module provides functionality for suppliers to register online and receive e-mail notifications to bid opportunities. The bidding module assists in creating and issuing bids, proposals, and quotes online. In addition, the bidding module will allow districts to receive bid responses and create bid tabulations and award notifications. As an alternative, suppliers may access, download, and print PDF versions of the bid documents and respond in the traditional format. Each district's bid data will be segregated and unique to their organization.
