Bids & RFPs

Bids & RFPs

MPS no longer posts solicitations for Bids and RFPs on the MPS portal. The District now uses the site "Bonfire" exclusively to accept digitial submissions for Bids and RFPs, and no longer accepts phyiscal or emailed responses to our solicitations, unless otherwise listed on this page. Vendors are asked to register on Bonfire and the City of Milwaukee E-notify sites if they wish to receive email notifications of Bids and RFPs issued by Milwaukee Public Schools. The links below takes you to the Bonfire site and the City of Milwaukee's E-notify site.

Bonfire allows vendors to select NAICS (North American Industry Classification System) codes which will be for the specific products and services for which you provide in order to receive notification of open Bids and RFPs. You can enter this site as often as you wish to change your NAICS codes and vendor information, if necessary. Please be sure to keep your registration information current by checking back often to update your email address, mailing address and other contact information, if necessary, to ensure you are able to maximize the benefits of Bonfire.

Please read the Bid and RFP documents and all terms and conditions applicable to the solicitations carefully before submitting your Bid or RFP, and be sure to check Bonfire periodically for any addendum that may affect your response. Responses are due on the date and time stated with no exceptions. MPS looks forward to receiving your response.
