Iowa launches Web site for bids and proposals

Iowa launches Web site for bids and proposals

Post it, and they will come. Iowa lawmakers decreed in April that state agencies must advertise all requests for bids and proposals on a page that went up this month on the state’s Web site, at eservices.iowa.gov/rfp. Vendors can find specific RFPs by typing in keywords.

Iowa’s IT Department developed and operates the site. Current RFPs for IT include:

  • statewide desktop management services

  • a server-based agency charge-back system for work force development

  • smart cards for access to the capitol complex

  • services to help Iowa agencies comply with the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. The deadline for that is next week.
