How to Participate in the Neighborhood Stabilization Bidding Process

The Colorado Division of Housing (CDOH) will soon be issuing a Request for Documented Quotes (similar to an RFP) to contract for training and consulting services to be provided in support of the federal Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP). CDOH invites qualified bidders to submit a response to this solicitation.

If your organization thinks it might be interested in bidding for this contract, it will need to register with our state's "BIDS" website. There is a fee of $40/year. All State of Colorado solicitations (RFPs, DQs, and bids) are posted on the BIDS website. BIDS is the only source to obtain solicitations and a bidder must be registered with BIDS for its proposal/quote to be accepted. BIDS is located at: When you get to that main page, click on the "Frequently Asked Questions" link at the top for some useful information about BIDS. When you're ready to register, click "Register" at the top of the main page to begin the process.

Jim Coghlan (contact info below) is the SOLE point of contact regarding this upcoming solicitation.

You should begin the registration process soon, to be sure you're ready to go when the solicitation is posted.

Thank you in advance for your interest!
