NEW CHA SUPPLIER PORTAL


DPC is pleased to announce its new CHA Supplier Portal. The new CHA Supplier Portal will replace the existing vendor system BuySpeed as of Monday, July 7, 2014.

This Web portal allows suppliers to:

· Register online for CHA's vendor database.

· View open solicitations/events.

· Update and maintain current vendor information and password resetting capabilities.

· Review and download CHA’s bid opportunities.

· Respond to bid opportunities electronically.

· Communicate more effectively with DPC staff during the solicitation process.

Registration

IMPORTANT NOTE: Recommended browsers for using the Supplier Portal are Chrome, Firefox Mozilla and I.E. 10 and above. You may not be able to complete the registration if you do not use one of the recommended browsers.

Vendors can begin registering in the CHA Supplier Portal as early as Friday, June 20, 2014, but all vendors must be entered into the new Supplier Portal by Monday, July 7, 2014 to avoid a possible interruption in your access to CHA procurement information.

All firms interested in bidding on CHA solicitations are required to register in the Supplier Portal. Firms may register at any time, including when submitting a bid or proposal, and registration is only required once.
