Our goal is to make doing business with the Utilities Commission as easy and convenient as possible, and we are constantly searching for ways to improve our procurement process. Our agency has selected DemandStar by Onvia as our primary electronic procurement service for automatic notification of bid opportunities and document fulfillment. We are now part of a network of hundreds of government agencies. We encourage you to participate in this efficient bid notification system with us.

To find out how you can receive automatic bid notifications, go to www.demandstar.com or call toll-free 1-800-711-1712. Working with DemandStar by Onvia is not a requirement. You will still be able to find bid information by monitoring the newspapers for our legal ads and viewing our Web site.

Our office hours are 8 a.m. - 5 p.m., Monday-Friday. However, we believe electronic procurement does offer significant advantages to supplier with information 24 hours each day. When you subscribe to DemandStar by Onvia, you are immediately sent bid and quote opportunities via fax or e-mail. We reviewed this program carefully before we joined the DemandStar by Onvia network, and we believe it is an important step toward improving our procurement processes. We believe it will help you respond to our bids more cost-effectively.
