Keep in mind there is a window for enrollment to be able to bid. If you miss this window, you can still enroll, but you need to be on the GSA or work with a vendor that is already on the State Term or GSA.
The FTC has many companies that are already on the State Term and on the GSA. Reach out to us if you would like to connect with one of these companies.
If you enroll in the MFMP (My Florida Market Place), you’ll not only have access to current bid opportunities, but you can also select to be notified when new contract opportunities are released.
You can also go to the DMS State Contracts and Agreements page to see bid opportunities. They also put bids out on the Vendor Bid System. Sometimes they do both, sometimes not. Through the VBS, you can even enroll for electronic notification.
Note: it is not easy to become a GSA Vendor. Unless you are doing a great amount of business with the state or federal government, it is better to join projects as a subcontractor.
All vendors must be registered in the MyFloridaMarketPlace (MFMP) Vendor Information Portal (VIP) to do business with the State of Florida. Training resources that cover the registration process are available on the MFMP Training for Vendors page; vendors may download job aids, view online trainings, or register for webinars or in-person seminars. Vendors may contact the MFMP Customer Service Desk at 866-352-3776 or firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance with the registration process.
Applicants must be an established business with two years of operation and an earned revenue of at least $25,000 per year.
Note: GSA offers the IT Schedule 70 Startup Springboard to get information technology (IT) vendors that have been in operation for less than two years onto Schedule 70.
