    Vendor Registration Guide for State Agencies Posted to State Intranet

    For state procurement officers involved with the business of completing transactions on behalf of state agencies, a Vendor Registration Guide for State Agencies has been made available on the Purchasing Division’s intranet website.  Located in the Vendor Registration section of the intranet website, this guide provides details regarding the Department of Administration’s requirements when processing an award document and, in addition, the document serves as a reference for procurement employees and defines the scope of the division’s vendor registration program.

    The Purchasing Division’s intranet is a private network for state employees and requires a state network connection to view.  For any questions regarding the Vendor Registration program or the Purchasing Division’s intranet site, please contact Mark Totten at mark.l.totten@wv.gov.

    Transparency-Focused Section Added to Purchasing Division Website

    The Purchasing Division has recently added a section to its website, WVPurchasing.gov, focusing on transparency in the state government procurement process.  The Transparency page contains data, reports, and publications related to procurements made under the Purchasing Division’s authority, as outlined in West Virginia Code, the West Virginia Code of State Rules, and the Purchasing Division Procedures Handbook.

    The information organized on the Transparency page reflects the Purchasing Division’s goal of providing transparency to the citizens of West Virginia, other state agencies, and the vendor community.  Sections of the Transparency page include the Notice of Centralized Award Report, the “Request an RFQ” form, a link to the West Virginia Purchasing Bulletin at wvOASIS.gov, a link to view vendor responses to solicitations that have been opened by the Purchasing Division, the Purchasing Division’s annual reports, a link to the West Virginia State Budget Office, and West Virginia Purchasing Bulletin Archives, which allows visitors to reference solicitations that were out for bid from 2006-2014.
