E-Bid Launches

Find out about E-Bid & more at the 2012 Opportunity Conference.

NEW ORLEANS – The Regional Transit Authority has launched a new E-Bid system allowing vendors to easily register with the RTA.

Business owners can use E-Bid, a procurement software system, for easy registration with the RTA. Vendors can view all RTA's solicitations for work, access documents and submit bids/proposals. Along with receiving email updates, vendors have a forum to inquire and obtain information quickly, register for events and view awards. Once registered, vendors are notified about opportunities they may qualify for.

“Our objective is to ensure full, open competition and to ensure the RTA is paying a fair and reasonable price for supplies and services.” Caroline Register, Procurement Director, said.

“The RTA is making efforts to ensure local small and disadvantaged businesses have a chance to benefit from major capital improvements,” stated Janice Abadie, Disadvantaged Business Enterprise, DBE, Compliance Director.  Referencing the Loyola Streetcar Expansion she added, “Projects are projected to impact the local economy and we want to make certain that business owners are aware of these opportunities.  This project will have a positive impact on businesses and the community.”

Also, the RTA 2012 Opportunity Conference, co-hosted with the New Orleans Regional Black Chamber of Commerce will inform the public about bid and purchasing opportunities from the RTA for the coming year.

The Conference will include procurement forecasts from the agency, as well as information on how to become a registered  vendor for the RTA and Veolia Transportation. In 2011, the RTA procured $62 million in Federal Transportation Association, FTA, funded projects and committed $18 million towards DBE contracts.
