IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ALL VENDORS
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.
