Electronic Bidding


State of Iowa Regent Institutions & the University of Northern Iowa is pleased to announce the transition to secure Internet bidding via the Bid Express Service. Electronic bid submission will be available starting in late Summer 2017 and will be the mandated form of bidding as of January, 1st, 2018. 

Electronic bid submission allows for digitally-signed bids, eliminates costs for hand and hired delivery of bid packages, provides error checking and alerts to omissions prior to submission, easily accommodates last minute changes and price cuts, as well as automated email notifications that alert vendors of solicitation postings and solicitation changes.  

It is pertinent all vendors register, setup to bid electronically, and navigate the service in advance to upcoming solicitation deadlines. All vendors who intend to submit their bids electronically will be required to create a user account and generate an Info Tech Digital ID(s) for their business’ authorized signer(s). 

Additionally, please see the following Fee Schedule. General navigation (registering, setting up to bid electronically, and solicitation review) of www.bidexpress.com prior to actual selection of a solicitation for bidding is free. Upon opting to electronically submit bids on a solicitation, the above payment approaches apply.
