For MCPS SUPPLIERS and potential suppliers


E-Maryland Marketplace has a new name: eMMA!

E-Maryland Marketplace is now "eMaryland Marketplace Advantage" (eMMA)!

NEW REGISTRATION is required! All past business registrations created in the old E-Maryland Marketplace are no longer in effect. All MCPS vendors MUST re-register on the new eMMA website to continue to receive notifications about our bid opportunities!

Using eMMA is the ONLY way for businesses to find out about all of the supplier opportunities we have to offer! MCPS is required by law to post all notices of new bidding opportunities through the eMMA website--vendors must go through the eMMA website to obtain bid information.
When vendors register on eMMA, they will be able to select the products and services for which they would like to receive bid notifications--not only from MCPS, but from other state and local agencies as well!


Businesses must be registered AND they must make their bid notification selections!

If vendors do not select their bid notifications, even if the business is registered, they will not receive notifications about new bids from MCPS!

For an overview on how to use eMMA, see the guidebook Vendor Quick Reference Guide.

To learn how businesses can select which bid notifications they want to receive, see the pdf guide on Managing Vendor Profile. (Vendor guide #2 in the Vendor Quick Reference Guide.) To register a business, visit the website: eMMA.
