The Procurement Office advertises all solicitations on the State of Maryland’s bidding website, eMaryland Marketplace Advantage (eMMA), which is free to all vendors. Registration is not required but in order to automatically receive bid notifications by email, vendors must register with eMMA on their website.
Additionally, formal bids are also posted on https://www.facebook.com/CalvertCountyMd/, on the bulletin board; outside of the Procurement Office which is located on the first floor of the County Services Plaza at 150 Main Street, Prince Frederick, Maryland and advertised for two consecutive weeks in at least two local newspapers.
Once your company is registered on eMaryland Marketplace Advantage as a vendor, you automatically receive email notifications of available bids, based on commodity codes. Since all Maryland State and Local agencies utilize this service, it will broaden your opportunity to provide goods and services statewide.
Once registered as a vendor, with your specific commodity codes, eMaryland Marketplace Advantage (eMMA) will email you with the link to view more detailed information on that particular bid. You will then be able to download the detailed bid package.
It is preferred that vendors contact the Procurement Office to make an appointment. This allows staff to dedicate uninterrupted time to the vendor to make their presentation.
Offline bidding refers to mailing or hand delivery of sealed formal bids directly to the Procurement Office. This is the current Calvert County Government procedure, we do not accept on-line bids.
Online bidding is an electronic filing of a bid through the eMaryland Marketplace Advantage website. The online bidding format on eMaryland Marketplace Advantage is not conducive with Calvert County Government’s sealed formal bidding document requirements.
