For Vendors


Vendor Training

The Division of Purchasing approaches public procurement as a two-way street and a partnership between the vendor community and the State.  This page has resources to assist vendors and incumbent contractors with questions they might have around doing business with the State and requirements while having an active contract.

Utah Public Procurement Place (U3P) Training

The State utilizes an eProcurement system to publicly post solicitations.  Many public entities throughout the state also post their solicitations here.  In order to ensure vendors have the tools needed to understand and respond within the system, we have provided helpful resources for using the system.
