What is eBidding?

It is......
The ability for Suppliers to respond electronically to State of Oregon contracting opportunities, through the Oregon Procurement Information Network (ORPIN), in a secure, paperless environment.

How to Participate
ORPIN allows suppliers, on select Invitations to Bid or Requests for Quote, to enter secure online electronic bid responses.  In order to enter electronic bid responses, suppliers must register in the ORPIN system and select "Electronic Bidding" under eService Information on page 1 of the registration process. 
 
If you are the primary contact for your company’s account in ORPIN and would like the ability
to submit bids electronically through the system, you simply need to check the Electronic
Bidding box under your subscription. (Add this to existing subscriptions by clicking My Profile,
Subscription Change/Renew, and checking the eBid box.) This feature is available to either
subscription level at no extra charge!
 
Now that you have turned on eBidding for your account, you need to set up your eBid
Keyword. (You will be asked to enter this keyword as the final step on an eBid document.)
Click “My Profile” in the menu bar and choose “Request/Change eBid Keyword”. Click the “Go”
button to prompt ORPIN to email you a temporary keyword.
 
You will have 14 days to change the temporary keyword to a permanent one, (you cannot use
temporary keywords to submit bids).
 
That’s it… you’re now ready to eBid! Be sure to pay attention to the bidding options on
Opportunities of interest to you – they will state whether or not they accept eBids at the top of
the Document Summary page, (just underneath the title).
 
If you have additional questions about Electronic Bidding, or if you are not the primary contact
for your company but would like more information, please contact the ORPIN Help Desk at
503-378-4642 or send us an email at info.orpin@state.or.us.
