All new bidding opportunities are now administered through NJSTART, the State’s electronic procurement system. View all current bidding opportunities.

We strongly encourage all vendors to register at NJSTART. NJSTART is designed to streamline the procurement process and make it more efficient for companies looking to do business with the State. Key features of NJSTART include direct notifications about new bidding opportunities emailed to vendors based on the commodity codes they select during registration; an online repository for vendor forms, eliminating the need to prepare forms repeatedly; vendors can view their remittance addresses to ensure their accuracy and select their preferred form of payment; and vendors can see a snapshot of the certifications required to do business with the State along with their status.

The Bid Solicitation {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.

Submitted proposals are opened publicly on the date and time specified on the NJSTART website. After the opening of proposals they are reviewed to determine 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 vendors {bidders} whose proposals were evaluated will receive a Notice of Intent to Award, indicating which vendor(s) will be awarded a State Contract.
