Update Your BidSync Qualifications!
Vendors are able to manage and update their standard qualifications in the BidSync, such as Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE), Women Business Enterprise (WBE), Minority Business Enterprise (MBE), or Small Business (SB). Log in to your BidSync account and select qualifications that your firm possess (top right of your BidSync home page).
For Broward County certifications, Small Business Enterprise (SBE) and County Business Enterprise (CBE), the Office of Economic and Small Business Development manages these certifications and adds these to your vendor profile if you are certified with Broward County. If you are currently certified as an SBE or CBE, and do not see it on your BidSync vendor profile, contact the Office of Economic and Small Business Development.
Notice to Broward County Suppliers
Broward County launched a new purchasing and financial management system on April 4th that will enhance your experience doing business with us! Effective March 25, 2016, all vendors that supply the County with goods and services must now mail their invoices to Broward County Commission, P.O. Box 14470, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33302-4741, Attn: Accounts Payable, or email them to AccountsPayable@Broward.org. Suppliers for any County construction project must also send a copy of their invoices, with any supporting documents, to the agency responsible for the project. The new system streamlines the accounts payable process and will result in faster, more efficient payments to suppliers. In the meantime, suppliers are encouraged to get all February invoices that are payable in March, in as quickly as possible, to avoid payment delays during the week of the launch.
