  • Read the solicitation in its entirety and follow all instructions.
  • Submit any questions to the Procurement Officer as outlined in the solicitation.
  • Read the ProcureAZ Vendor FAQ on the ProcureAZ Resources for Vendors page. 
  • Attend pre-bid meetings when conducted as part of the solicitation.
  • Read and acknowledge any solicitation amendments.
  • Attend site visits when conducted as part of  the solicitation. Respond to the solicitation in Procure AZ. 
  • Sign and return all attachments.
  • Disclose any debarment or suspension – state agencies verify via the (SAM) website before any contract award is made.
  • Review videos and guides as needed from Vendor Resource page on the State Procurement Office website.
