HOW TO DO BUSINESS WITH QUARTERMASTER DIVISION

​*The Quartermaster Division promotes a Department-focused environment while procuring goods and services in a  cost-effective manner with the best interest of the service, the Department, the State, its vendors, and the general public.

*The MSP will use its best efforts to ensure Minority Business Enterprises (MBEs), Small Business Reserves (SBRs) and Veteran-Owned Small Business Enterprises (VSBEs) have an equal opportunity to participate in the procurement process.

*Procurement processes shall be ethical, professional, and in accordance with all applicable laws, codes, and statutes.  


MARKETING TO MSP

As a vendor, your first point of contact should be the appropriate Buyer at Quartermaster.  All vendors are encouraged to make an appointment to present and or discuss goods and services offered by your company.  Any information you p​rovide would be passed along to the appropriate Department personnel.

All prospective vendors must first be registered with e-Maryland Marketplace at www.emarylandmarketplace.com

MINORITY BUSINESS ENTERPRISES (MBE) SMALL BUSINESS RESERVES (SBR)

VETERAN-OWNED SMALL BUSINESS ENTERPRISES (VSBE)

The MSP has a strong MBE Program in place to increase the business it conducts with MBEs.  MSP encourages minority owned companies to participate in the procurement process.  

One objective at Quartermaster is to meet or beat the State’s goals set for the total procurement money spent with MBEs.

All vendors conducting business with the MSP shall comply with Maryland’s MBE law.

Small Business Reserve and Veteran-Owned Small Business Enterprises are also encouraged to participate in the procurement process.

EVALUATION & AWARD PROCESS

Competitive Sealed Bids

The purchase of goods or services with specifications is obtained through a formal, competitive sealed bid.

Competitive Sealed Proposals

Competitive sealed proposals are the method for the procurement of professional services.  Different evaluation factors are used to determine the most qualified and experienced company for the work to be completed.

Depending on the solicitation process, MSP may request oral, written or presentations from companies being considered an award which resulted from a competitive solicitation.

An Evaluation Committee will be responsible for evaluating qualifications and capabilities of companies who have submitted proposals in response to the request for proposals/qualifications.  After the final evaluation of the submittals for those competitive solicitations exceeding $250,000, the Evaluation Committee will forward its recommendation to Quartermaster for approval.
