All procurements at the threshold of $100K or above must be publicly advertised on a website as designated by the Central Procurement Office to comply with the Procurement Regulations, 2018. Suppliers will have access to the website to check for opportunities.
The portal is at: https://www.procure.gov.ky/bid-opportunities
Enough information should be provided in the project description to allow suppliers to assess their capability or interest in the procurement. Procurement documents become available to suppliers upon activation of the vendor registration process. The procurement period and document availability begins at the time of public advertisement through the notice of opportunity.
Procurements under the $100K threshold may also as an option be publicly advertised on a website designated by the Central Procurement Office.
Additionally, supplemental advertising of the notice of opportunity may be done in a local paper and/or a specific publication relating to the procurement.
