13 How to Become a Prime Vendor Vendors registered on the Centralized Master Bidders List (CMBL) for those class and item codes for which we are soliciting will be notified of bid opportunities by email. It is the vendor’s responsibility to find all notices. Check back often. The CMBL annual registration fee is $70.00. http://www.cpa.state.tx.us/procurement/prog/cmbl/Centralized Master Bidders List (CMBL) http://www.cpa.state.tx.us/procurement/prog/cmbl/ If you are not signed up on the CMBL. You will need to visit the Current Contracting Initiatives page http://www.dir.texas.gov/ict/cci/Pages/currentcontractinginitiatives.aspx http://www.dir.texas.gov/ict/cci/Pages/currentcontractinginitiatives.aspx Submit your RFO response to DIR. We then evaluate all responses received and determine which vendors offer the best value for our customers. The highest scoring vendors are then invited to negotiate. Contracts will be awarded to one or more vendors. Prime vendors wishing to name resellers for their contract should list these resellers on their HUB Subcontracting plan in their RFO response. Prime vendors can amend their list of resellers at any time by updating their HUB subcontracting plan. NOTE: resellers can sell only the product/services awarded under the Prime Vendor’s contract.

14 How to Become a Reseller for a Prime Vendor Go to Co-op products and services search and browse for potential partners.products and services search Confirm that the products and services you offer align with the contract offering. NOTE: New products and services are added only through the RFO process and cannot arbitrarily be added to the prime vendor’s contract. Contact the prime vendor and negotiate directly. NOTE: This process is handled exclusively between you and the prime vendor. Once the prime vendor submits a request to us to add you as a reseller and we have approved that request, then our contract manager will add you to the website.
