Want To Know what The State of Montana is Buying?

Did you know that the State of Montana publishes a quarterly forecast of anticipated Purchases? Four times a year, the State Procurement Bureau posts a forecast of anticipated purchases $5,000 and above for the current/upcoming quarter. View the latest forecast, at https://vendorresources.mt.gov/ProcurementForecast Checking the forecast is helpful if the procurement is for services below $25,000 or goods below $50,000, as those are limited solicitations, which do not have to be posted publicly. The procurement forecast may be the only advance notice you get that the state is planning to buy what you sell…especially if you have not registered in the Montana Acquisition & Contracting System (eMACS). Contact Patty Cox with the PTAC (Procurement Technical Assistance Center), located at the University of Montana to learn about becoming a vendor and how to find contracting opportunities with the State of Montana.
