Over the next few months, all contracts will be converted to NJSTART, and all business transactions and purchase orders will be processed through the new system. View all current bidding opportunities.
NJSTART allows vendors to set up profiles and upload documents, which eliminates the need to file duplicate forms every time they bid on a new contract solicitation. Moreover, the portal is designed to offer vendors an online “one-stop- shop” from bid opportunity notification to the submission and tracking of questions and answers, quotes, contract awards, and payments.
Submit Your Proposal
The RFP provides all necessary instructions and a complete description of the requirement with specifications and terms and conditions to enable the preparation of a compliant proposal.
Proposal Openings and Evaluations
Submitted proposals are opened publicly at the location, date and time specified in the RFP. After the opening of proposals they are checked if they are responsive and all forms and registrations have been included.
Responsive proposals are evaluated by a Procurement Bureau Procurement Specialist or Evaluation Committee based on price, terms and conditions, specifications, and other factors.
Following the evaluation of responsive proposals, all bidders whose proposals were evaluated will receive a Notice of Intent to Award, indicating which bidder(s) will be awarded a State Contract.
