WELCOME TO P.O.R.T.
Notice to All Vendors: On March 14th, the PORT system will be implementing a security update that will require a modern operating system and browser. More information and instructions for testing your system.
The Procurement Operations Resource Technology system – or PORT – is a secure, web-based eProcurement system for Anne Arundel County, Maryland. The system will help to streamline procurement processes as well as offer many new features and expanded services, including:
- Business opportunities posted to a consolidated bid board where you can view and respond
- Automatic email notification of business opportunities
- Ability to electronically submit bids or proposals
- Enhanced self-service vendor registration in a "one-stop shop”
- Ability to upload documents such as W9, SDAT, COI, etc.
- Much more!
Getting Started with Vendor Registration
All vendors who wish to bid on future opportunities to sell products and/or services to Anne Arundel County, Maryland and its local agencies are encouraged to register online. Anne Arundel County will still accept paper bids as well, however no award can be made without an online vendor profile being created. Click on the Registration button to begin your vendor profile set up. If there are any questions regarding Vendor Registration after you have read the instructions below, please contact [email protected].
Bid Opportunities and Vendor Login
The Bid Opportunities button above will be updated with all new Anne Arundel County solicitations created through the P.O.R.T. system. Solicitations that were published prior to the implementation of the P.O.R.T. system will still be accessible from the Purchasing Division’s Current Solicitations menu until they are closed. Continue to check both pages for available opportunities. Once you register and set up a vendor profile through the Registration tab you will be able to log in and bid on new open opportunities.
