Important post-upgrade change to Supplier Portal

Some terminology within Supplier Portal will change:

  • "Vendor" is now "Supplier"
  • "Vendor ID" is now "Supplier ID"
  • "Vendor Tab" is now "Supplier Tab"
Why Was I unable to access the Supplier Portal?

The City of Boston upgraded its Human Capital Management (HCM) and Financial (FN) applications to a cloud environment to provide staff with a system that is more secure, reliable, and efficient. 

Due to this upgrade, the Supplier Portal was inaccessible Thursday, May 19, 2022 through Monday, May 23, 2022

What does this mean for me as a Vendor?

From Thursday, May 19, to Monday, May 23, vendors were unable to access bid events and their documents, submit online bid responses, register, or update vendor information. Vendors were still able to submit paper bid responses during the downtime. 

If you need more information on a specific bid or RFP, please reach out to the corresponding contact on the Bids and RFP page.
