Doing Business with the State of Colorado

ACCESSColorado
Supplier Resources, Training and Outreach
 
The procurement function in Colorado is decentralized and businesses wanting to sell goods or services to State government must promote their goods and services to individual State entities and actively search for opportunities on ColoradoBIDS (the Statewide solicitation system).  The State Purchasing Office is a valuable resource that can help guide businessess through the process.  ACCESSColorado (Goods and Services Edition) is our program for active and prospective suppliers.
