Welcome to the Kansas State University Bid Portal

This site allows prospective suppliers to create a Bid Portal account.  Prospective suppliers who create an account and select one or more commodity codes aligned with the equipment, products, and services they offer will receive system-generated notifications by email of new University opportunities matching their commodity code selection.

Public and invitation-only solicitations issued by the University are posted on this website.  

Prospective suppliers are solely responsible for ensuring their account information is kept current.

For step by step instructions on how to create an account or use the University Bid Portal, navigate to the Vendor Support Portal of the University's technical support provider, bids&tenders.

Kansas State University does NOT charge a fee for creating or maintaining a Bid Portal account or for accessing the University's solicitation documents.
