City of Amarillo introduces online bidding process

Vendors submitting a bid to the City of Amarillo (COA) will soon be able to complete the submission process in a matter of minutes thanks to a new online bid system.

Beginning June 3, COA will implement Bonfire – new bid system software in the COA Purchasing Department that will improve the bid process for city projects.

The average submission time for a bid to the city will be eight minutes.

“Bonfire replaces the city's Public Purchase platform and will significantly streamline the entire bidding process,” said COA Purchasing Agent Michael Lindley.

Among the conveniences of Bonfire are:

●Faster and easier bid submissions: Submit bids electronically without paperwork.

●Increased participation: The user-friendly platform encourages more vendors to participate in city projects.

●Fewer disqualifications: Bonfire's clear guidelines will help reduce disqualifications by 65 percent.

No registration fees are required to use Bonfire. Solicitations posted prior to June 3 will follow the current bidding process.
