Contractor may terminate the Contract for cause by written notice to the DOC. The Contractor may
not terminate the Contract without cause unless express written consent to do so is provided by
the DOC.
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 may not receive notification of procurement solicitations.
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 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 $25,000. Organizations without Internet access receive paper copies in the mail. Increasingly,
state agencies also are using VendorNet to post simplified bids valued at $25,000 or less. Vendors also
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.

The State of Wisconsin is committed to the promotion of minority business in the state's purchasing

Authority for this program is found in ss. 15.107(2), 16.75(4), 16.75(5) and 560.036(2), Wisconsin
Statutes. The contracting agency is committed to the promotion of minority business in the state's

business enterprises or by using such enterprises to provide goods and services incidental to this

The supplier/contractor shall furnish appropriate quarterly information about its effort to achieve this goal,
including the identities of such enterprises certified by the applicable State of Wisconsin Supplier Diversity
Certification Program (http://vendornet.state.wi.us/vendornet/doaforms/doa-3234.doc) and their contract

The Wisconsin Office of Business Development also certifies disabled veteran-owned business
certification program and supplier/contractor should also include the identities of such businesses in their
quarterly information.

payment directly to the contractor.

delivery or payment of any of these purchases.
The State of Wisconsin will determine the contractor’s participation by checking a box below.
