  • A completed Solicitation document, number: 220174 that can be found in the Supplier portal. 
  • A portfolio, samples of work to submit for all lots you are applying for. 
  • A completed W-9 Form 
  • Current copy of certification by the U.S. Small Business Administration if business is certified as small, disadvantaged, or woman owned. 

If you have questions along the way, please contact Melissa Spring, who coordinates the fixed price bid application process for Communications and Marketing. 

What happens next:
