VENDOR REGISTRATION & FEE INFORMATION
vendor registering with the Goodbuy Purchasing Cooperative will
be sent, via email, e-notifications of bid availability on the commodity categories that they select, but will not appear on our website as an Authorized Vendor until after they
have submitted a bid and have been awarded a contract by the ESC-2 Board
Please note that failure to submit a bid in response to a bid
for a commodity category that you have selected will result in the removal of your
firm from that category's bid e-notification emailing list.
e-notifications are sent out via email on the Start Bid Availability Date for
each bid category selected. Please refer to the Bid Schedule for each
bid category at:
The Contractual Bid Forms
for each RFB must be completed and submitted prior to 11:00 am CST/CDT on
the Bid Due/Opening Date. Our General Terms & Conditions must also be
reviewed prior to bidding. Both are available to print beginning on the Start
Bid Availability Date until 11:00 a.m.

Please note that bids received late will be returned unopened.
Most of our bids are multiple-award Catalog
Discount Bids. Participating vendors list their published catalog/price list
titles, or the URLs if catalogs are online, and reference what discounts, if
any, from list price that they are offering our membership.
We also offer our membership two multiple-award
Service Bids. Participating vendors identify pricing or hourly rates for the
various services that they offer and identify their standard service area, if
applicable, and any additional charges for travel to work locations outside of
that area that our membership may incur.
There is no charge to register to
receive bid e-notifications. Vendors will be liable for a $50
administrative fee for each bid category
that they participate in. There is no need to
submit the administrative fee when registering to receive bid
e-notifications. However, your bid submission will not be processed
without receipt of the administrative fee. Therefore, it is
advisable to submit your check (payable to ESC-2 and dated no sooner
than the Bid Due/Opening Date) with your proposal in order to facilitate
the processing of a successful bid. Most bid categories represent
two-year contracts, thus the annual cost amounts to only $25. If
you need assistance during the registration
process please contact us by
email or by phone at (800) 891-6403.
