The New eVP Goes Live July 10!

The functions of the current electronic Vendor Portal (eVP), Interactive Purchasing System (IPS), and North Carolina Business Invitation Delivery System (NC BIDS) will be migrated to the new system on Monday, July 10, 2023. 

To support this transition, there will be a week where no new solicitations are publicly posted and a subsequent week with no scheduled bid openings.




  • No new solicitations will be posted July 1 - 9.
  • No bid openings will occur July 8 - 16.
  • Bid solicitations that open on or before July 7 will remain in IPS.
  • Post solicitations in the new eVP starting July 10, with bid opening dates on or after July 17.
