The City has transitioned to a new e-Bid/RFx software powered by Mercell Source-to-Contract (formerly Negometrix), which is a completely free service for all prospective bidders. All solicitations will be released electronically through Mercell and bid responses from bidders MUST be submitted electronically through Mercell's online platform. By using Mercell, prospective bidders will be provided with all information regarding a bid including addendums and changes to the project requirements.
Registration with Mercell is free and is required prior to submitting a bid response. You will be required to register once you click the PARTICIPATE BUTTON in the solicitation file. It is suggested that companies register no later than 24 hours in advance of a bid submission deadline to ensure proper registration. Should you need assistance with registering, please contact the Mercell Service Desk by calling (724) 888-5294 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once your company is registered with Mercell, you will be able to submit your bid securely anytime before the bid deadline at https://app.negometrix.com/buyer/748 by clicking the PARTICIPATE BUTTON under the solicitation. Bids submitted on Mercell are locked and inaccessible by City staff until the current bid deadline.
