Project Bid Opportunities

The Town of Rico has partnered with BidNet as part of the Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System to post bid opportunities to this site.  As a vendor, you can register with the Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System and be sure that you see all available bids and opportunities. By selecting automatic bid notification, your company will receive emails once the Town of Rico has a bid opportunity that matches your company’s business. In addition, the site handles bid opportunities, RFPs, and RFQs for other member governmental agencies throughout Colorado.

The Town of Rico looks forward to providing you with more bid information and simplifying the entire bid, proposal, and quote processes for everyone involved.  We appreciate your cooperation and welcome your participation.  If you need help registering, please call the Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System support department toll free 1-800-835-4603 option #2.

This information was compiled and a community engagement meeting was hosted at Town Hall on Monday July 10, 2023 to further refine the scope and priorities of the town.
