RFQ, RFP and RCCP Opportunities

For those who are requesting to receive a County of Union RFP/RFQ or RCCP – Please note that using Google Chrome or Firefox as your web browser has the best success rate.

If you do not receive the auto-response e-mail – Please try using a personal email address as your contact method, as this can prove to be more successful than a business email address. Once a Proposer fills out general information form, they will receive an email with a link to download the RFP/RFP or RCCP.  At times with business emails especially, the return email from an automated ucnj account can be sent to “spam” or be blocked by spam filters entirely.  A personal email address does not seem to have this issue. If you do not receive the automatic e-mail within 5 minutes upon filling out the request form, please click here to use this technical assistance form.
