Procure to Pay (P2P) Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get on a bidder's list?

ACC has developed an online vendor registration for all business that are interested in providing goods and services, professional services and construction services to the District. See Supplier Registration for instructions.

What is meant by conflicts of interest

Suppliers responding to a solicitation cannot have a conflict of interest. In addition, a supplier cannot create an appearance of impropriety. The College is required by law to ensure fairness in the award of contracts. The College has implemented policies pursuing fair and open competition. 

All suppliers responding to a Solicitation must provide either a statement outlining possible conflicts or a statement asserting that no conflict exist. All respondents that are awarded a contract are required to notify the College of any emerging conflicts.

The College reserves the right to assess possible conflicts and reject bids or proposals due to a conflict.

To avoid misuse of tax-supported resources and avoid inappropriate use of District resources for personal gain, activities that would violate applicable state laws or board policy are prohibited.
