RFPs & RFQs: Doing Business With SPC
Due to the nature of professional services required for SPC’s transportation and economic development studies and activities, much of our procurement is for consultant professional services through an RFQ/RFP (Request for Qualifications/Request for Proposals) process, the details of which are provided in the individual solicitations.
How do I find information about contracting opportunities?
Contracting opportunities including RFPs (Request for Proposals) and RFQs (Request for Qualifications) are posted on SPC’s website here: http://www.spcregion.org/rfp.shtml.
What is the procedure to be notified of contracting opportunities?
If you would like to make SPC aware of your agency and would like to receive information about RFQs/RFPs when SPC needs to acquire a service/product that you provide, please fill out an online Supplier Registration Form.
You may also print the Supplier Registration Form and return it to SPC:
