Bids and Contracts
SAP introduces a different way for the vendor to engage with LAUSD to submit bids and receive POs via the SUS portal– the entire process is moving from paper (hard copy, fax, etc.) to electronic. With this shift towards e-commerce, in the very near future, vendors will receive and respond to bid solicitations via e-mail, and be required develop and maintain on-line catalogs with current LAUSD pricing. The new process will introduce an electronic lock box for bids, which enables vendors to pull back an offer and/or modify pricing up to the closing date, etc.
