It is highly recommended that all interested bidders subscribe to receive updates on bids. It is the responsibility of the bidder to download all bid documents associated with the bid solicitation.
All electronic bidders must first register on www.bidexpress.com and create an Info Tech Digital ID for free, which is used to digitally sign bids.

See the Bid Express Set-Up Guide for a detailed step-by-step walk-through.
