SEPTA launches new electronic bid system

The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) has launched an electronic bid (eBid) system for solicitations over $100,000.

The agency will notify vendors about such solicitations through its electronic procurement system. Notices also will continue to be published on SEPTA's website and in local newspapers.

The new eBid system is aimed at simplifying the procurement process, SEPTA officials said in a press release. Once a company registers, it receives electronic notifications for new procurement opportunities.

The system supplements eQuote, which is SEPTA's existing system for solicitations below $100,000.
