Thank you for your interest in the PCA! Region III Education Service Center, on behalf of all eligible PCA Members, is making national cooperative purchasing contracts available through PCA.
Become a PCA Awarded Contractor in 2 Steps
1. Complete the Vendor Registration Form. Select the link above and complete the Vendor Registration Form online. Upon approval, your company name and information will go on the PCA Vendor 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 and is 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 this auto email can sometimes end up in your junk, spam, or trash folder(s) - depending on the security of your company's email system. 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 (through 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.
If you are having trouble logging in on the Vendor Tab after you created your account, please email PCAmerica@PCAmerica.org & we will manually issue you a password (please state your username and the password you prefer in the email).
Once you have access, log-in on the top section. Enter your username & password, submit the captcha, & hit the red “Log in” button…it will stay on this page once logged-in. Then you may go to the Solicitations Tab to click the link to see the Solicitation Instructions for the Bonfire portal to respond. If you have any issues, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org; for Bonfire issues please contact email@example.com
To Update your information: Log-in above FIRST, then go to the blue "Click Here For Vendor Registration Form", your username will already be in the form when it opens up, then you fill-in your information, and select "Submit" to update.
NOTE: Check back monthly by visiting the Solicitations Tab to see if any RFPs are published that fit your company products/services. Read the Instructions and follow them closely when responding.
Vendors: Please note, if your customer has not joined PCA yet, simply have them fill out the Member Registration Form on the 'Members' Tab. If they require an Interlocal Contract, the ILC is available on the Forms Tab. They can send it to PCA via email and we will email it back after the Region 3 ESC Director signs it. When your customer issues a PO, make sure they put PCA & the contract # on it.
