Vendor Registration and Vendor Lists

Potential vendors are able to do business with State of Florida executive branch agencies by completing the registration process in the Vendor Information Portal (VIP). This process gives vendors the opportunity to select various categories of products and/or services (i.e. commodity codes) that the vendor may be interested in providing to the State of Florida. Selecting (or deciding not to select) any given category does not prohibit any vendor from later bidding on a solicitation related to that category. Pursuant to Chapter 287, Florida Statutes, the Department of Management Services (DMS) does not limit solicitations to any pre-selected group. Any registered vendor may bid on any given solicitation. The primary benefits of the category selection process are:

  • State agencies and eligible users (as defined by Rule 60A-1.001, Florida Administrative Code) may identify potential vendors by searching the vendor list for vendors registered for a particular category when making discretionary purchases.
  • The Vendor Bid System (VBS) will send email notifications to all registered vendors in a category whenever a solicitation is posted related to that category. Please note that it is the vendor's responsibility to actively monitor the system for open solicitations. Email notifications are an additional service provided by DMS; however, the system's failure to send an email notification does not give any vendor a cause of action against DMS or any state agency using the system.

Section 287.042, Florida Statutes, and Rule 60A-1.006, Florida Administrative Code, refer to the vendor registration process as the Vendor List. DMS stresses that it does not investigate or "pre-approve" vendors on the Vendor List, and state agencies are cautioned that determinations of responsibility must be made by the agency in accordance with subsections 287.057(1-3), Florida Statutes, and Rule 60A-1.006(1), Florida Administrative Code.
