MDTA Division of Procurement

The MDTA Division of Procurement is responsible for providing all aspects of the procurement process in support of the MDTA's capital program, operating budget and its Police force. The Division develops, solicits, evaluates, negotiates and awards all construction, architectural/engineering, consultant, service, maintenance, specialized equipment, commodities, information technology and small procurements for MDTA and the MDTA Police.

Doing Business with the State of Maryland

The state of Maryland is required to use state contracts for goods and services. To receive a contract award from the state, you must be a registered vendor with eMaryland Marketplace (eMM).

For items not available from state contracts, buyers are encouraged to use the free interactive bidding component of eMM: https://emaryland.buyspeed.com/bso/. The eMM website is the gateway to bidding opportunities for commodity, construction, architectural/engineering, facility, maintenance, human services, information technology and related services.

All contracts over $15,000 are required to be advertised on the eMM website. A copy of Code of Maryland Regulations (COMAR) 21.02.03.06 and the Maryland DGS guidelines can be found on the eMM website.
