VENDORNET REGISTRATION
Department of Administration and State Bureau of Procurement policies no longer require maintenance of
bidder’s lists or individual notification of vendors on bidders’ lists. In addition, there is no requirement to
post solicitations for bids/proposals in the Legal Notices of the Official State Newspaper. Vendors who fail
to register with VendorNet or who register or change/add commodity codes after the posting of a
solicitation may not receive notification of procurement solicitations including amendments or
cancellations.
The State of Wisconsin’s purchasing information and vendor notification service is available to all
businesses and organizations that want to sell to the state. Anyone may access VendorNet on the
Internet at http://vendornet.state.wi.us/vendornet/asp/reginfo.asp to get information on state purchasing
practices and policies, commodities and services that the state buys, and tips on selling to the state.
Vendors may use the same Web site address for inclusion on the bidders list for commodities and
services that the organization wants to sell to the state. A subscription with notification guarantees the
organization will receive an e-mail message each time a state agency, including any campus of the
University of Wisconsin System, posts a request for bid or a request for proposal in their designated
commodity/service area(s) with an estimated value over $50,000. Organizations without Internet access
receive paper copies in the mail. Increasingly, state agencies also are using VendorNet to post simplified
bids valued at $50,000 or less. Vendors also may receive e-mail notices of these simplified bid
opportunities.
To obtain information on the state’s bidder registration, visit the VendorNet Web site at
http://vendornet.state.wi.us or call the VendorNet Information Center (1-800-482-7813). In the Madison
area, call 608-264-7898.
Make sure to select all the appropriate NIGP (Commodity) Codes. Bid lists are generated by NIGP codes.
Consider using a generic email address that is accessed or delivered to multiple recipients (example:
[email protected]). This will insure that the bid notice is received.

apprise all assisted offenders of the same:
Neither the State of Wisconsin’s selection of a Charitable or faith-based Contractor
of services or the expenditure of funds under any contract with said Contractor is
an endorsement of that Contractor’s charitable or religious character, practices, or
expression. No Contractor of services may discriminate against you on the basis
of religion, a religious belief, or your refusal to actively participate in a religious
practice. If you object to a particular Contractor because of its religious character,
you may request assignment to a different non-sectarian Contractor by contacting
your Agent.
7.15.4 To ensure an offender is informed of the foregoing, a faith-based or charitable Contractor
shall require that each offender receiving Services under this Contract signs an

forms shall be promptly provided to Purchaser. Finally, Purchaser will require that each
offender sign the Purchaser’s “Voluntary Choice and Waiver” form, which will be provided
by Purchaser, prior to receiving any Services from a faith-based or charitable Contractor
under this Contract. A faith-based or charitable Contractor agrees to refrain from
providing Services hereunder to an offender until it receives a copy of a fully executed
Voluntary Choice and Waiver form from Purchaser for that respective offender.

DESIGNATION OF CONFIDENTIAL AND PROPRIETARY INFORMATION
The attached material submitted in response to Bid/Proposal #JB-4257 AODA Certified Treatment
Specialist Services at REECC
includes proprietary and confidential information which qualifies as
a trade secret, as provided in s. 19.36(5), Wis. Stats., or is otherwise material that can be kept
confidential under the Wisconsin Open Records Law. As such, we ask that certain pages, as indicated
below, of this bid/proposal response be treated as confidential material and not be released without our
written approval.
Prices always become public information when bids/proposals are opened, and therefore
cannot be kept confidential.
Other information cannot be kept confidential unless it is a trade secret. Trade secret is defined in s.
134.90(1)(c), Wis. Stats. as follows: "Trade secret" means information, including a formula, pattern,
compilation, program, device, method, technique or process to which all of the following apply:
1. The information derives independent economic value, actual or potential, from not being generally
known to, and not being readily ascertainable by proper means by, other persons who can obtain
economic value from its disclosure or use.
2. The information is the subject of efforts to maintain its secrecy that are reasonable under the
circumstances.
We request that the following pages not be released

in the bid/proposal document to be insufficient. The undersigned agrees to hold the state harmless for any
damages arising out of the release of any materials unless they are specifically identified above.
