Each organization using Bonfire has its own unique Bonfire Portal (i.e. website) where bid opportunities can be found. After registering for a Bonfire account, you will be able to log in and gain access to public bids and the posted bid documentation. If you're unsure how to find an organization's Bonfire Portal, you can check several areas:
- If you were invited to the Project through Bonfire, you can access the Portal and Project directly by following the link embedded in the email invite sent directly by the buyer.
- In some cases, you may be provided a direct link by the buyer or an invitation not through Bonfire; in this case, you'll want to review the email message carefully to see if a link was provided.
- The link to the Bonfire Portal is often also found in the documentation of the Project, such as the RFx document that includes the rest of the specifications.
- Sometimes the organization will provide a link to their Bonfire Portal on their own website.
If you've checked each of these locations and are unable to find the correct Portal, get in touch with us and we'd be happy to direct you! Please be sure to provide us with the bid name and/or reference number if possible.
NOTE: At this time there is no "central" portal available displaying all of the open public opportunities available within Bonfire. If you are looking to find new bid opportunities within Bonfire you can accomplish this by setting up commodity codes while registering your vendor account.
