Solicitations and Awards
SCDSS uses the South Carolina Enterprise Information System (SCEIS) for its purchasing activities, including solicitations and awards. Solicitations and awards for SCDSS, and other S.C. agencies and entities using SCEIS, is available on the Contracting Opportunities webpage of the SC State Fiscal Accountability Authority’s website. Once at this website, find current bidding opportunities posted by SCDSS, by choosing "Social Services" from the Purchasing Agency drop down menu, click "Open" under Solicitation Status, then click "Search."
You can also find bidding opportunities in the South Carolina Business Opportunities online listing of solicitations from all agencies with an expected value of $10,000 or greater.
To do business with the State of South Carolina, a vendor must first register in SCEIS. To register or update an existing registration, go to Vendors/Contractors.
