eMaryland Marketplace, the state's online bid board system, will be replaced this summer with a new eProcurement platform – eMaryland Marketplace Advantage (eMMA).
Vendors must complete the brief Vendor Information Questionnaire (only one submission per IP address). The information provided will serve as your preliminary registration. When eMMA is ready to launch in July, you’ll receive a temporary user name and password so you can log in and complete the user profile. You will be able to edit your submission and add additional contacts at that time.
Existing vendors that do not complete the questionnaire prior to the launch date will have to register as a new vendor, so please take the time to complete the questionnaire at your earliest convenience.
If you have questions about eMMA, contact: email@example.com.
Note: Regardless of the dollar amount, City Schools requires a purchase order for all purchases. Vendors who commence work before they have received a valid purchase order do so at their own risk.
The prequalification selection (PQS) process creates a pool of qualified service providers to deliver high-quality programs, including professional development, academic interventions, student support, and after-school and summer programming. Schools can select an approved service provider with the confidence and knowledge that they are investing in a high-quality, research-based program with demonstrated success.
Unlike the district's traditional solicitation process, which limits approved providers to awards for a three-year period, PQS allows for ongoing qualification of new service providers. Respondents to solicitations must use this template to submit cost proposals.
There are currently no open PQS solicitations. New solicitations will be posted here as they are developed.
