As a vendor, you can register with the RI Purchasing Group to ensure that you see all available bids and opportunities. In addition, the site handles bid opportunities, RFPs, and RFQs for other member governmental agencies throughout the state of RI. In addition, bids can be submitted electronically on the RI Purchasing Group bidding platform.
