Bidder Registration

WYDOT’s Procurement Services Program has previously announced a new partnership with Public
Purchase, a web based eProcurement service that began on April 1, 2011. This eProcurement
system provides registered vendor’s with automatic notification of WYDOT Procurement Services
bids for vendor selected commodities and services based on classification codes. (WYDOT does
not guarantee electronic notification of bids.  Bidders shall be responsible for monitoring the
site and downloading any bids of interest.)

In addition WYDOT Procurement Services bids will be advertised on WYDOT’s web page under Business with WYDOT, Procurement Services, Bidding Opportunities; as well as posted on the Public Purchase web site for WYDOT bids. Bids may be obtained by registering with Public Purchase. This registration is a two-step process.

1.  Create an account by registering your organization with Public Purchase at no cost.  If you
have already registered please go to step 2, otherwise you can register by going to their website
at http://www.publicpurchase.com .  Under “Free Registration” click on “Go to Register”.  This will
link you to the Public Purchase vendor registration site where you should follow the instructions
provided on the screen.  Your registration will be submitted to Public Purchase for activation and
review, and then your account will be created. This process usually takes about 24 hours.
2.  Link your Public Purchase account to WYDOT.  When your registration with Public Purchase is
complete and activated, you will receive a confirmation email from Public Purchase.  Using the link
provided in the email, log in using your username and password, then click on the “Tools” tab on the
top right hand side of the screen. Type in “Wyoming Department of Transportation” and click on “Search”
then click “Register with Agency” on the right hand side of Wyoming Department of Transportation.
WYDOT requires you to complete five (5) tasks in this part of the registration process:
1. You will be prompted to read and either accept or decline our Disclaimer;
2. You will be prompted to read and either accept or decline our Standard Terms and Conditions;
3. You will need to complete our Bidder’s Application;
4. You will need to complete the form W109, Request for Taxpayer Identification Number & Certification; and
5. You will need to select the NIGP commodity code(s) that relate to your business so you can receive email
notifications of future bid opportunities that match the code(s) you select.
These tasks will be automated if you follow the process outlined above.  It is your responsibility to keep the
information up-to-date, particularly contact information and email addresses.  Public Purchase provides government agencies and their vendors with a comprehensive and easy to use web-based eProcurement system.  The Public Purchase eProcurement system is designed exclusively for use by government agencies and their vendors and is compliant with all Federal and State regulations, which set forth the required procedures for government agency purchasing.
If you have any problems with this process please contact Public Purchase at: support@publicpurchase.com , or call (801) 932-7000, or you may use the “live chat” option in the upper left hand corner.
