University Health has partnered with Bonfire Interactive to create a new procurement portal that will allow you to register as a vendor to:
- Do business with University Health
- Receive notifications of business opportunities
- Submit bids and proposals digitally
As of January 1, 2023, this will be the only digital site used for vendor registrations, solicitations and receiving proposals.
The link below will direct you to the registration and login page. This is a new host, so you must register through this portal.
Registration is easy and free. Please be sure to select NAICS codes associated with your type of business or organization. Our solicitations will be set up using those codes and will be matched to vendors and contractors with the same codes.
University Health is excited about the changes we are making to streamline our electronic bid process and we look forward to continuing our good relationship with you and appreciate your interest.
Should you have any questions, please contact Procurement.Services@uhtx.com.
Once you register and have been approved, you will be invited to participate in any current bid opportunities that match your company’s commodities. You can also monitor the opportunities directly.
University Health Supplier Diversity Program encourages minority, women, and veteran owned businesses to participate in the competitive bid process.
