There are two types of companies when registering to do business with the State:
- Sourcing Bidders are companies that register as never having received business from any state of Georgia entity
- Suppliers are companies that have previously received a remittance, purchase order or contract award from the state of Georgia
Many people vary on their use of the words bidders, vendors, and suppliers. The term “bidders” refers to any company bidding on a certain item or product. But the distinction of the terms “suppliers” and “bidders” is only important during registration in Team Georgia Marketplace™.
