Announcements

NOTICE: Beginning October 12, 2020, legal advertisements for the City of Chicago Department of Procurement Services (DPS) will appear in the Chicago Tribune and online at www.publicnoticeillinois.com. Information about DPS contracting opportunities will be available at www.chicago.gov/bids.

Introduction to eProcurement Vendor Workshops:

**2020 eProcurement Vendor Workshops are listed below. **

DPS is continuing on the next phase of start-to-finish purchasing modernization via the implementation of a comprehensive eProcurement system. eProcurement applies digital technology to the acquisition of goods and services. It will allow DPS to collaborate with City Departments to create solicitations and contracts online reducing the time it takes to complete procurements. We invite you to attend a demonstration to learn about iSupplier registration, how vendors will submit bids, proposals, how to view contracts and payments online all via the eProcurement process.

Please be advised that eProcurement Training sessions have gone virtual.  The next training session dates are 9/16, 10/15, 11/18, and 12/16, 2020 at 2 pm.  Please register at:  www.cityofchicago.org/dpsevents
