260:115-3-3. Supplier registration

  1. Purpose.
    Unless otherwise specified, supplier registration pursuant to this section provides a supplier with automatic notification of bid opportunities but is not required for a supplier to respond to a solicitation. Automatic notification is dependent upon a supplier providing the Office of Management and Enterprise Services valid and up-to-date information. Supplier registration is required for any supplier selected for contract award or renewal of a contract pursuant to the Central Purchasing Act and these rules. For the purposes of this section, "State Purchasing Director" does not include personnel of state agencies to whom the State Purchasing Director has delegated authority.
  2. Registration.
    A supplier may apply for registration online as established by 74 O.S. 85.33, for each commodity classification listed in the registration application. A successfully completed registration application will result in the individual or business entity being placed on the Supplier List for a one-year period, at which point, registration is required to be renewed in order to remain in active registered status. Registered suppliers are to be notified by the acquiring agency pursuant to applicable laws and rules, of solicitations for each commodity classification for which a supplier maintains active registered status. The State Purchasing Director shall not place a supplier on the Supplier List if the supplier provides incomplete registration information or if the State Purchasing Director, in his or her sole discretion, determines the supplier is not responsible.
  3. Registration renewal.
    A registered supplier may renew a registration prior to the expiration date of the supplier’s current registration in order to remain on the Supplier List.
  4. Voluntary removal from Supplier List.
    A supplier may submit a written request to the OMES Purchasing Division to request to be removed from the Supplier List for a commodity classification.
