How to do Business with RTA

Become an RTA Vendor

The Regional Transit Authority has launched a new ProcureWare procurement system allowing vendors to easily register with the RTA.

Business owners can use ProcureWare, 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.

About RTA Procurement

The RTA frequently hires local and national businesses to work on projects that improve our fleet and increase services for our ridership. Projects include everything from streetcar rail expansions to vehicle maintenance, from operations management to marketing initiatives.

The Procurement Department at the RTA serves as the connection between various RTA departments and companies wishing to bid on projects and provide their goods or services. See current procurements.

Here is a general overview of the procurement process:

  • The RTA department that needs goods or services submits their requirements to the Procurement Department.
  • The Procurement Department seeks cost approvals from the RTA board.
  • The RTA posts a notice on this website to solicit bids from interested companies. We may also directly contact registered vendors whom we think may be qualified.
  • Companies prepare and submit their bids and project proposals.
  • An appointed evaluation committee evaluates all bids in a public forum.
  • The evaluation committee makes a recommendation as to which company should be awarded the project and sends the recommendation to the RTA board for a vote.
  • The RTA sends a purchase order to the winning company and work begins.
