Beginning August 1, 2023, LADWP will receive bids via the electronic Request-Solicit-Procure System (eRSP). eRSP may sound familiar for some as LADWP had implemented and used this system in previous years. The new eRSP will have new and improved features including:
•New bidding portal for an easier more efficient experience
•Streamlined bidding process, reducing administrative burdens, paperwork, and associated costs
•Enhanced transparency and fairness ensuring a level playing field for all bidders
•Access to more LADWP contracting opportunities for a wider range of bidders
•Ability for vendors to self-certify for SBE, DBE, LBE and other socio-economic programs
•Newly enhanced cyber security features
•Seamless integration into LADWP’s system
Beginning July 17, 2023, all bidders are welcome to register and create a vendor profile in the new eRSP system, or re-activate existing eRSP accounts at https://ersp.ladwp.com.
Meanwhile, all LADWP bids closing on or before July 31, 2023 will still need to be submitted through the Ivalua dropbox. Bids may not be submitted via eRSP until August 1, 2023. In addition, all current LADWP bid opportunities are being listed on the City of L.A.’s www.rampla.org website. If you are not a current user, you can register at www.rampla.org for free, view opportunities and download the necessary bid documents. Instructions for bid submittals are located in the bidding documents. If you have any questions, please contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
