A Competitive Process
To become an Awarded Vendor, you must respond to one of our competitive solicitations.
Unlike our members, vendors and manufacturers can’t simply apply. Instead, they must follow a competitive solicitation process which begins with responding to a Sourcewell RFP (request for proposal) or IFB (invitation for bid).
Once RFP responses are evaluated and scored, our Board of Directors awards the contract to the most responsive and responsible vendor(s). Our members can then purchase goods and services using the contract. Through the awarded contract process, your company and/or dealer network can become one of Sourcewell’s highly regarded vendors.
Prospective vendors should understand Sourcewell contracts are national solutions versus the traditional spec-based bids. It’s an important distinction. When vendors respond to a Sourcewell RFP, they should submit all eligible products and/or services within the scope of the published RFP. Respondents should also demonstrate their ability to sell and service nationwide.
We partner with world-class vendors to serve our 50,000 unique members, who are searching for a wide variety of products, equipment, and services.
