Becoming a Vendor for JHU
The Capital Projects & Planning team has instituted a joint prequalification process for projects managed by the Johns Hopkins Health System, Johns Hopkins Facilities & Real Estate, the School of Medicine, and the School of Public Health.
If you want to become a Capital Projects & Planning vendor, please submit your qualifications for review to the Vendor Review Committee by completing the online application below.
You will be redirected to the Johns Hopkins University & Health System Contract Management System, Gob2g. Once there, scroll down to “Vendor Registration” and click “Apply for Registration.” Follow the instructions provided to complete and submit your company’s online application. All information entered into the system is kept strictly confidential.
The committee convenes monthly to review vendor submissions. Once the submissions are reviewed, the committee recommends vendors for interviews with Capital Projects & Planning leaders. Monthly interview sessions will be scheduled and vendors will be notified of the status of their prequalification submission.
Request for Proposals/Invitation to Bid
JHU policy requires that all purchase orders with a total aggregate of $5,000 or more be competitively bid. Proposers and bidders are by JHU invitation.
We invite proposals/bids on a project-by-project basis depending on size, complexity, and timing. We may provide a list of preferred vendors to a general contractor or design firm, but we will gladly consider others, given adequate notice to check references.
Our primary goal is to maintain high-quality work while obtaining the best value (not necessarily the lowest price) for our clients and the University. Therefore, awarding a contract for competitive reasons alone may not be practical. Your proposal/bid for a project shall be evaluated against both qualitative and quantitative criteria.
We value design consultants, constructors, and special service vendors, specifically the individuals within those companies who have tangible experience in the project being developed. We strive to maintain positive working relationships with firms that have provided outstanding service to the University in the past. We also seek opportunities to collaborate with new companies, including those with DBE certification. Reference checks, including constructors, consultants, and other clients, are valued in the selection process.
