Competitive Solicitations Notices
The UW utilizes the Washington Electronic Business Solution (WEBS) to post notices for competitive solicitations over $100,000 and occasionally for solicitations between $10,000 and $99,999. The notices posted in WEBS contain details related to the solicitation type, size and scope, instructions regarding the timeline and method required to submit a bid, and contact information.
Some solicitations are managed electronically through the SAP Business Network (also known as Ariba Network). In order to view the complete solicitation and respond to WEBS postings from the University, suppliers may be required to register in the Ariba Network. There is no fee for registering in the Ariba Network. Pre-registering on the Ariba Network prepares suppliers to respond to University solicitations and can save time when responding to future solicitations.
