Become a PCA Awarded Contractor in 2 Steps
1. Complete the Vendor Registration. Select the link above and complete the Vendor Registration form online. Upon approval, your company name and information will go on the our internal list. Registration on the PCA website does not mean that a company has a contract. You still must complete Step 2.
A password link will be issued to you by email one use only). Then you will be able to log in with your username and set-up a password to review PCA solicitations. PCA will notify you when a new solicitation becomes available in your chosen Category(ies). Please be aware that the auto email, can sometimes end up in your junk, spam, or trash folders - depending on the security of your email system. If you are able, please put email from domains pcamerica.org & gobonfire.com on your safe lists, so you don't miss the auto emails regarding passwords.
Step 2. Respond to a solicitation on the Solicitations Tab. Respond to a PCA solicitation (RFP or RFQ). Your response will be reviewed and scored by the evaluation committee. The company is not an Awarded Contractor until/unless they respond to a solicitation and have been awarded a contract. Responding to a RFP/RFQ does not guarantee a contract award. If a contract is awarded by the Region 3 Education Service Center Board of Directors, then you will be a PCA Awarded Contractor.
