Online Training

Learn more on how you can participate in local and statewide bids through BidSync (formerly RFP Depot). BidSnyc offers maximum flexibility in a streamlined, web-based RFP and bidding system. This secure, automated, system allows schools to manage all competitive and other procurement processes online.

We believe that BidSync represents a major opportunity for saving schools money. But, it will only work well if districts register. It only takes a minute or two, so please do it now. Then we can start using this valuable tool to save all districts precious resources!
