We've built in everything your office needs to manage public procurement.

Public procurement can be complicated. From making sure that you’ve met your organization’s outreach requirements to collecting all the proper documentation before issuing your awards, there’s often a lot of nuance to the process.

Bid Locker supports both simple and complex workflows, and our user interface makes each task straightforward and easy to understand. We’ve worked hard to anticipate the purchasing needs of a variety of organizations, and we continually refine our platform to improve usability.

Priced affordably for any agency.

We’ve made Bid Locker affordable even for small agencies and agencies with limited budgets.

You can start with a 60-day evaluation period, to try out Bid Locker and see how well it works for you. After that, your cost is determined by the number of active agency staff accounts you need. We have no minimum seat license requirements, either.

We have no setup fees and no hidden costs. You can opt for monthly or annual billing, and you can cancel at any time.

There is also no cost to vendors, now or ever.

per month

You can opt for as few or as many seat licenses as you need — if one or more of your staff share a seat license, that’s fine, too!

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you help us with a migration from an existing platform?

Yes, we’d be happy to help. We can import vendor records, purchasing histories, old solicitation notices, nearly any kind of record you need.

Can you integrate with our financial system?

In general, yes. As long as your financial system has an import/export mechanism that we can use programmatically, then we can link the Bid Locker E-Procurement Suite with it.

Can you help us reach out to our old vendors, to let them know about a new platform?

Yes. We have sample emails you can use, and if you can provide us with a list of vendor emails, we can set up email distribution lists to help you with outreach.

Can you provide our IT department with any security or accessibility assessments?

Yes, if they have any assessments they’d like us to complete, we’re happy to do so.
