Explore Missouri Government Bid Opportunities Using Bid Locator Tool

The MissouriBUYS Bid Locator Tool, powered by the InstantMarkets application, is a consolidated search page that can be used to LOCATE Missouri government (i.e. local, state, federal) bid solicitations throughout Missouri. This new tool is a search engine that crawls Missouri’s public sector websites helping vendors find additional public bid opportunities without having to search multiple sites saving valuable time.

The black “FILTERS” button (below on the right) allows users to conduct a search by keyword, locations, timeframes, and many others. Users can select the bid that interests them and be redirected to the government agency’s website for all the remaining details. The black “HELP” button (below on the right) provides step-by-step instructions on how to use the Bid Locator Tool to search for relevant bid opportunities.

In response to the challenges the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) presents, and to ensure the safety of the public, postal workers, couriers, and our employees, effective immediately, the Office of Administration, Division of Purchasing, as authorized by Executive Order #20-04, and as permitted by sections 34.040 and 34.042, RSMo, hereby restricts receipt of all bid responses to electronic submissions.

The step-by-step instructions for submitting bids can be found at: MissouriBUYS website.

The vendor is solely responsible for ensuring timely submission of their electronic solicitation response. Failure to allow adequate time prior to the solicitation end date to complete and submit a response to a solicitation, particularly in the event technical support assistance is required, places the vendor and their response at risk of not being accepted on time. 

If a vendor does not have electronic accessibility to submit an electronic bid response, the vendor must contact the bid’s buyer of record at least five (5) days prior to the due date of the bid to determine if an alternate process is available to accept the vendor’s bid. However, at this time under the current circumstances, electronic bid submission is the only certain way to be able to submit your bid response.
