Current Bid Opportunities: 

The Southwest Ohio Regional Transit Authority has partnered with OpenGov and is excited to announce our transition from a paper-based bid solicitation process to a fully automated, web-based electronic bidding and vendor management system. Below are the bids and proposals currently being solicited and the corresponding closing dates for each. Our new e-Procurement Portal will allow interested parties to do the following:

● Register to bid and receive notifications of future opportunities in the e-Procurement Portal by selecting Subscribe to create an account.
● Follow updates to existing solicitations by finding the solicitation and clicking the Follow button. This will allow all interested parties to receive amendments and addenda automatically.
● Submit questions and receive answers for open solicitations.
● Guide vendors through the process of responding electronically to RFPs, bids, etc. to ensure submissions have been accurately completed.
● Ultimately, be your one location for all bid opportunities issued by the Southwest Ohio Regional Transit Authority.
