To respond to solicitations using the VIPR Vendor Solution, vendors will need to know which Host Dispatch Center to select on the resource forms (Formatta) or in the vendor application, depending on which solicitations vendors are responding to.

To determine the appropriate Host Dispatch Center to use, do the following:

  1. Using the map above, click on the Region/Geographic Area that corresponds to the solicitation and is in the Geographic Area where you wish to submit an offer.
  2. From the list, select a Host Dispatch Center.
  3. Make a note of the Unit Identifier, which you will use when you complete the appropriate resource information forms that are included in the solicitation package or when you submit a quote on a solicitation using the vendor application.

What you need to know about the Dispatch Center drop-down lists in the Formatta resource information forms and in the drop-down list in the vendor application:

  • The lists are alphabetical by State and then by the Dispatch Center (i.e. AL-AIC, AR-AOC… WY-TDC).
  • An example of how to find the Dispatch Center: if you are responding to a solicitation from Forest Service Region 5, California, you would first look at the Host Dispatch Centers that start with “CA,” and then select the Host Dispatch Center for the city from which you wish to be dispatched, say, Redding; the Dispatch Center Unit Identifier is CA-RICC.
  • If you select a Host Dispatch Center that appears to be incongruent with your Vendor location, the Contracting Officer may request that you review your selection and possibly re-submit your offer.
  • Several centers are Geographic Area Coordination Centers (GACCs), as indicated by asterisks in the tables below.
