Request for Proposals

A Request for Proposals (RFP) from the Minnesota Department of Commerce is a formal invitation to potential contractors or grantees to submit a proposal that responds to the need identified in the RFP. The RFP is the procurement process where the agency can judge if the contractor’s experience, qualifications, and approach will provide the best solution to meet the need identified in the RFP. 

Note: Any amendments to a RFP will be sent to the email address you submit here. If the email address you submit is invalid, you will not receive amendments, updates, or other information. 

If no RFPs appear on this page, potential contractors can also look for contracting opportunities in the State Register, the Department of Administration and the Office of Grants Management websites.

Minnesota's Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

The State of Minnesota is committed to diversity and inclusion in its public procurement process. The goal is to ensure that those providing goods and services to the State are representative of our Minnesota communities and include businesses owned by minorities, women, veterans, and those with substantial physical disabilities. Creating broader opportunities for historically under-represented groups provides for additional options and greater competition in the marketplace, creates stronger relationships and engagement within our communities, and fosters economic development and equality. 

To further this commitment, the Department of Administration operates a program for Minnesota-based small businesses owned by minorities, women, veterans, and those with substantial physical disabilities. For additional information on this program, or to determine eligibility, please call 651-296-2600 or go to www.mmd.admin.state.mn.us/mn02001.htm.
