Contracting Opportunities - Vendor Meeting Changes
City Procurement is actively working to ensure fair, open and transparent access to our competitive solicitations for all interested participants. All in-person meetings such as pre-proposal and pre-bid conferences, bid openings and demonstrations that would normally be open to the public will be accessible via conference call or video conference only. This will continue until the City of Charlotte offices reopen to the public. Staff is assessing if this will be a continued option in addition to in-person meetings thereafter.
Instructions on how to use WebEx, our video conferencing platform.
Procurement staff have been notifying participants of any changes and publishing addendums to open solicitations with specific details regarding the date, time and method of accessing the meeting. Please monitor the
