Thank you for your interest in doing business with Inland Empire Health Plan (IEHP). IEHP’s Purchasing Department is constantly looking for suppliers of the varied goods and services it procures. IEHP procures goods and services through the solicitation process, and in the case of repetitively purchased items, establishes long-term contracts. With the exception of Public Works (construction type bids) and a few specialty bids, most bids for goods and services procured by the Purchasing Department are completed using a third-party solicitation website called Bonfire. By clicking on the Purchasing Department “Bonfire – Open Bids” link, vendors have the option to view IEHP’s open bids on the Bonfire website. IEHP invites all vendors to register with Bonfire and participate in IEHP’s fair and open solicitation process for goods and services.
The Purchasing Department is committed to supporting the mission of IEHP, which is “to organize and improve the delivery of quality, accessible and wellness based healthcare services for our community”. As a community-developed health plan, we are accountable to the public.
IEHP’s Purchasing Department procurement professionals possess the necessary skill set, knowledge base, and negotiating skills to assist IEHP with the acquisition of materials, equipment and contractual services. Utilizing this expertise, our best procurement practices, and the highest standards of professional ethics and integrity, we ensure that procurement decisions made are in the best interest of IEHP and in compliance with all applicable laws, regulations and policies.
