Welcome to the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development's (DHCD) Procurement website, providing information on procurement opportunities.
DHCD procures a variety of goods and services for the successful operation of its business across the State of Maryland.
Listed below are some examples of DHCD Procurement Opportunities:
Please complete the Vendor Registration for DHCD Procurements form. This information is used to directly notify vendors of DHCD procurement opportunities.
ALL BUSINESSES should register on eMaryland Marketplace, the State’s procurement portal.
The State of Maryland and many counties use eMM to publish solicitations. Once registered with eMM, your business will receive email notifications of solicitations issued under the NAICS codes your business identified during registration. So be sure to register for as many NAICS codes as may apply to your business.
For more information, visit eMaryland Marketplace.
The DHCD Procurement Opportunities List is updated as new opportunities are posted, new documents are added to existing procurement postings and/or contracts are awarded.
NOTE: If you download an electronic copy of an available solicitation, please contact the Procurement Officer listed in the solicitation and provide them with the prospective vendor's name and email address so that amendments to the solicitation and/or other communications can be sent directly to the prospective vendor in regards to the contract awards.
It is important to understand not only how state agencies do business, but also why agencies operate the way they do.
Title 21 — State Procurement Regulations in the Code of Maryland Regulations (COMAR) dictates how state agencies do business. It is important to familiarize yourself with these regulations. You may review COMAR online.
The Governor’s Office of Small, Minority & Women Business Affairs (GOSBA) offer many resources to assist and guide vendors with nearly every area of business, from getting started, to specialized lending offers, to technical assistance with government procurements. For more information, visit the Governor's Office of Small, Minority and Women Business Affairs.
Maryland law requires that each agency structure its procurement procedures to try to achieve an overall minimum Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) goal of 29%, Veteran-Owned Small Business Enterprise (VSBE) goal of 1% and Small Business Reserve (SBR) mandate of 15%. These goals & mandate are based on the agency’s total dollar value of procurement contracts to be made directly (via prime contractors) or indirectly (via subcontractors) from certified MBEs, VSBEs and SBRs.
To the extent practical, DHCD will set-aside opportunities exclusively for small business participation and/or place minority/veteran goals on procurements. Whether or not set-asides or goals are placed on procurement, DHCD encourages small, minority and veteran owned business participation on all procurement/contracting opportunities.
