A firm or individual who registers as a Vendor/Contractor will receive email notification of solicitations and bids for SamTrans, Caltrain and Transportation Authority projects/purchase requests. You will be asked to enter information about your firm. In addition, you will be asked to choose a password (your email address will serve as the user name) and identify the areas of expertise for which you wish to receive notifications about solicitations and bids. You may choose as many NAICS codes as desired.

However, to be approved as a vendor you must select at least one NAICS code.

If there is more than one person in your firm responsible for handling solicitations and bids, it is prudent to register each individual separately. This will ensure that email notifications do not go unnoticed in the event someone is out of the office or you have staffing changes.

Once registered, you have the ability to modify individual profiles as needed. If you are no longer the person that should be receiving solicitation notifications, please update or delete your profile.

Each solicitation or bid has an accompanying Planholder's List. By logging on as a Vendor/Contractor and downloading documents, you are automatically added to the Planholder's List for that particular solicitation/bid.

Once you are a Planholder on a particular solicitation/bid, you will be eligible to receive notifications of changes or other information specific to that solicitation/bid.
