Help with the Vendor App
The vendor application is available now for vendors to use when responding to solicitations or modifications for all resources.
View a list of detailed resources using this vendor application.
*Generic resources are used for various local equipment and services not listed on the National Solicitation Plan for I-BPAs, but may be identified on the Method of Hire (MOH) chart located in the Interagency Incident Business Management Handbook (IIBMH).
Use this Web page to find information and instructions specific to the vendor application.
Click on the Log in button at the right and you will use your eAuthentication username and password to access the Vendor application.
If you have not already registered in the vendor application, VIPR will automatically start the Registration wizard to walk you through the simple, two-step process. Once you are registered, you can use the Home page to determine what you wish to do next… enter your company information, enter your resource information, and/or view open solicitations. You MUST enter your company information and your resource information BEFORE you can submit a quote on an open solicitation.
In the footer of the Vendor application, you can use the "Online Help" for assistance.
Viewing the Solicitations (and Amendments) posted to FBO
From the FedBizOpps (FBO) Web site, you can view a PDF version of open solicitations (and amendments) for solicitations with resources that use the vendor application:
However, to submit a quote for these solicitations, you will need to use the vendor application.
In the vendor application, you can view the solicitations and start the quote process by doing either of the following:
Entering Resources into the Vendor Application
In the vendor application, in the Manage Your Resources wizard, enter your resource information once with its attributes exactly as they are for that resource. VIPR will use the attributes you entered to determine the Resource Category type(s) that your resource qualifies for based on the national solicitation specifications. What your resource qualifies for is listed in the Finished step of the wizard, as well as in the Resource Information.PDF and the Resource Details icon, which are both accessible from the My Resources table. NOTE: Generic resources will qualify for all generic solicitations.
When you are submitting a quote, if your resource qualifies for more than one type, you will be asked to provide a rate and select the Dispatch Center for each type that you are offering under that solicitation.
IMPORTANT: Entering resources in the vendor application is different from the Formatta process in that in the vendor application:
For more information about the differences between the vendor application and Formatta, view the VIPR Vendor Application Fact Sheet In the footer of the Vendor application, you can use the "Online Help" for assistance.

NOTE: You will need to send an AGAR 452.209-70 Unpaid Delinquent Tax Liability Felony Conviction Representation document for each solicitation you submit an offer on; however, if you resubmit an offer, you will not need to resubmit it.
