IEHP now utilizes the services of Bonfire Interactive,, a third-party electronic bidding software that allows vendors to receive notification of business opportunities and digitally submit bids and proposals to IEHP.  Upon registration on the Bonfire portal at, vendors will receive e-mail notifications of upcoming bidding opportunities for their selected National Institution of Governmental Purchasing (NIGP) commodity codes.   Vendors can view posted bids, receive notice of addendums, post questions and answers, electronically respond to bids, and see when bids are awarded. 

Completion of this process will allow your business to participate in future IEHP business opportunities.  It also provides your ability to maintain your data as your business grows or changes. 

There is NO CHARGE to register for this service.  Bonfire Interactive may have other services available for a fee, but purchase is solely at vendor’s discretion and not required to do business with IEHP.

Just a couple helpful hints before starting your registration:

First, bid notifications are based on registered e-mail addresses, hence, it is recommended you use a generic email address for your company, if you have one, and a second email address for a specific individual, if available.  That way, if personal email addresses change, your company still receives notification of bidding opportunities. 

Second, save your company’s user name and password in a secure location, so that it is accessible when you are not available.

IEHP cannot guarantee vendors will receive notice of every opportunity to sell to IEHP. Therefore, we encourage all vendors to visit our Purchasing website for a listing of current bid solicitations on a regular basis.
