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.

Tips for Submitting a Response to a Solicitation; Invitation for Bids (IFB) or Request for Proposals (RFP)

  • Read the entire solicitation, including all attachments, completely and thoroughly.
  • Attend the pre-bid meeting/site visit.
  • Ensure all forms are completed in their entirety.
  • Include all required information, forms and documents in your submission. 
  • Failure to read ALL requirements and follow instructions may result in non-award. The solicitation outlines all of the requirements of the solicitation. Be sure to read thoroughly, follow instructions, sign and date where applicable - Double Check!

Do Your Homework

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​.​

Small, Minority and Veteran Business Participation

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. 

For more information, visit the Governor’s Office of Small, Minority & Women business Affairs​.
