Vendor Training Center

You can access Vendor Training and Guides for using the OSP System here.

Training on Bidder Response, Registration and Website Navigation includes three Video Resources and two Guides.

Use the OSP Solicitation Response Checklist and Support Guide when responding to a bid.

All vendors surveyed during our June 2022 sessions responded "Yes" to the question "Would you recommend this training session to your associates?". You have access to the same resources used during our live training sessions here.
