The University of Massachusetts Lowell utilizes two eSourcing Platforms to conduct university bid sourcing events. Both platforms are utilized to advertise events, post documents, post addenda and receive supplier responses. BidDocsOnline.com is used for large capital projects and Bonfire is used for all other bid sourcing events.
Documents attained from other sources will not be recognized during the bid and award process. Vendors relying on documents obtained from sources other than the BidDocs.com or Bonfire.com websites do so at their own risk and may result in the rejection of their bid.
Please pay special note to bid opening times.If you are planning to attend an opening scheduled for a day with inclement weather, please call the University’s Closing Status Line at at 978-934-2121.
Bid submissions and registration are free of charge. For more information on being a vendor, visit the Bonfire vendor portal, or our section on Doing Business with UMass Lowell.
For questions related to registration or use of either eSourcing platform, suppliers should contact the customer service desk at BidDocsOnline or Bonfire.
For questions related to RFx requirements, submission requirements, clarification of terms and conditions or technical documents, suppliers should first review the applicable bid documents for the event in question, then, if additional questions remain, contact the Sourcing Manager listed for that event for further clarification.
If you are planning to attend an opening scheduled for a day with inclement weather, please call the University’s Closing Status Line at at 978-934-2121.
