what is the myfloridamarketplace system going to include for cmbe vendors and other users
What is the MyFloridaMarketPlace system going to include for CMBE vendors and other users?
  • Full life cycle of purchasing cycle (requisition to payment of goods and services)
  • Connection to buyers and vendors through electronic exchange of catalogs, quotes, bids, contracts, purchase orders, invoices, etc.
  • Sourcing tools for bids, quotes, auctions and reverse auctions
  • Integration with the State’s financial management system (FLAIR) for payments
  • Vendor registration in one location for all state buyers







In the MyFloridaMarketPlace system, some things will be different and some things will remain the same for MBE vendors.

What’s Different?

  • Vendors will register in one location for all state agency buyers to find
  • Vendors will have the opportunity to sign up for on-line solicitations and bids
  • Vendors will affirm that they are an MBE business that can be certified by the State
  • Vendors will maintain their company information on-line through MyFloridaMarketPlace
  • Vendors will receive purchase orders and will invoice using the system

What’s the Same?

  • Vendor relationship with agencies
  • Vendor relationship with OSD
  • Vendor submission of required certification documentation to OSD
  • OSD review and approval of certification requests submitted by the vendor
  • OSD oversight and monitoring of certified vendors using the system

CMBE and MBE vendors will register in the MyFloridaMarketPlace system even if they are already registered in the State’s SPURS system.

  • Vendors must register on MyFloridaMarketPlace to begin or continue selling goods and services to the State of Florida
  • Vendor Registration available March 2003
  • During Vendor Registration . . .
    • New and existing vendors have the option to identify themselves as a minority and/or woman-owned business
    • Certified Minority Business Enterprise (CMBE) vendors and companies that want to become a CMBE vendor must choose that designation during registration

In order to obtain CMBE status, a vendor is still required to submit all the documentation that is currently used to determine certification status.

  • After selecting to be considered as a “certified” MBE, the vendor must go on to complete the rest of vendor registration
  • By selecting CMBE designation, vendors affirm that they meet the Office of Supplier Diversity’s (OSD )CMBE requirements
  • Vendors that select to be considered for certification must submit the required documentation to OSD within 25 days of registering in the system
  • Failure to submit the required documentation will result in certification being denied by OSD
  • Following receipt of the required documentation at OSD, the rigorous certification verification process will begin, just as it is accomplished now
  • If, during the verification process, the vendor is determined to not meet the requirements, the vendor will be notified about the determination and given an opportunity to provide additional material as allowed by law
  • If the vendor completes the required steps and provides all of the required documentation, then the State Certification Officer will certify the vendor as a CMBE and the certification letter and mountable certificate will be sent to the vendor for their use and display

MyFloridaMarketPlace includes tools for vendors and for buyers. All vendors will have access to a dedicated vendor helpdesk to provide support.
