Bid Contact Information
Northwest Florida State College (NWFSC) officially advertises solicitation documents, addenda and communications through BidNet Direct’s Florida Purchasing Group. BidNet provides a way for local government agencies across Florida to more effectively notify suppliers of solicitation opportunities.
Suppliers must register with BidNet to access and download NWFSC’s solicitation documents. Access to NWFSC’s BidNet site is free. Please click here to register for an account and access all of our active solicitations.
Bids/Proposals will only be accepted by the College as outlined in the solicitations. Vendors should review all terms and conditions contained within each solicitation packet thoroughly.
Current solicitation documents will be posted on BidNet only. It is the responsibility of each potential supplier to monitor the BidNet website regularly for opportunities and to review changes, addenda, and communications to solicitations. Feel free to contact BidNet’s Vendor Support if you need assistance registering or using the Platform: (800) 835-4603.
The NWFSC Purchasing Director will be the only point of contact for Request For Proposals, Invitation For Bids, and/or Invitations To Negotiate. Under no circumstances may a proposer/bidder contact any member of the Board of Trustees, NWFSC Administrators, or NWFSC employees concerning solicitations until after award. Any such contact may result in disqualification.
