Denver Public Schools no longer has a Vendor Application. However, beginning July 1, 2013, the District will require all suppliers that wish to provide goods and services to the District to “register” on the DPS Supplier Portal. The District is moving in stages to an e-commerce business platform. Bid events, supplier responses, negotiations, amendments and award notifications, etc. will be processed and communicated on-line.
Beginning January 1st, 2018, Denver Public Schools will post solicitation documents on the Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System site (RMEPS/BidNet). RMEPS provides a way for local government agencies across Colorado and Wyoming to effectively notify vendors of solicitation opportunities. All solicitation documents and related addenda are posted on this website. Vendors are requested to obtain all solicitation information from this site.
Vendors can visit this one site to have instant access to solicitation opportunities for Denver Public Schools, as well as, additional opportunities from other agencies throughout Colorado and Wyoming. Vendors must register with RMEPS to be able to access and download solicitation documents. There is no fee to register, however, vendors may sign up for e-mail or fax notifications for a fee. Vendors who sign up for notifications will receive potential solicitation opportunities from RMEPS that may applicable to their identified product/service offerings. Vendors who do not choose to register for notifications are responsible for monitoring the status of the posted bids and related documentation on their own.
It will be the responsibility of each potential vendor to monitor the RMEPS website regularly in order to be aware of business opportunities and review changes or addenda to bids, quotes or proposals.
Under Commodity Listing, you can find the Buyer’s name and contact information. You may, at any time, find the appropriate Buyer for the goods or services you provide and contact them for an appointment or additional information.

Vendors may send product information through U.S. mail. The schools names and addresses are listed on the District web site at www.dpsk12.org.
