Procurement Portal Updates

We are excited to announce that the Procurement Portal is being updated to improve the current workflows and usability while also updating the look-and-feel.

DGIT's Software Development team will be updating the portal in waves through July. Each release will satisfy the requests and suggestions of the different uses for the portal. This page will list all changes being made to the portal with references to training materials developed for enhancements.
