HCC encourages qualified vendors to participate in the bid process. There are two avenues for participation:
The Massachusetts Higher Education Consortium (MHEC) purchasing consortium
While HCC attempts to notify those interested in participating in bid opportunities, it makes no guarantee that vendors will be included in solicitations. Those individuals or businesses who wish to participate in bids are advised to make use of MHEC or Comm-Pass. Vendors who subscribe to Comm-PASS will receive email notification of any solicitation that HCC posts on Comm-PASS. Open bids are posted at the college on a bulletin board across the hall from Frost 335.
While it is HCC's intention to make public the results of its solicitation process as quickly as possible, HCC shall not be held liable for errors, clerical or otherwise, or interpretation/misinterpretation of the information publicly read at the formal opening.
Vendors may request copies of bids by calling (413) 552-2384.
HCC's written "Notice of Award" or "Intent to Award" will be mailed to all bidders on file/proposers and also posted on Comm-PASS, if applicable, and will constitute a final decision by HCC to award the contract.
Questions regarding bid opportunities and open bids should be directed to the Administration & Finance Staff Assistant.
Questions regarding print bids should be directed to the Publications Coordinator.
Questions regarding construction bids should be directed to the Director of Facilities & Engineering.
