Procurement Solicitation (RFP/IFB) Retrieval Instructions

The Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority (NFTA) has partnered with Bonfire Interactive to create a new procurement portal that will allow you to receive notifications of formal competitive procurements (Requests for Proposal & Invitation for Bids) and then electronically submit bids and proposals to the NFTA.

  • Registration on Bonfire is mandatory to participate in the NFTA’s formal competitive procurements and to download procurement documents and submit a proposal/bid.
  • Vendors are requested to visit, then follow the link to the Bonfire vendor registration page to register your company. 
  • Registration is easy and free. 
  • Please be sure to select “Vendor Type” and “NAICS Code Set” associated with your type of business or organization.
  • Vendors will be alerted to upcoming solicitations based on their selected “Vendor Type” or NAICS Code.
  • The vendor is solely responsible for the electronic submittal of their response and the Authority is not responsible for any transmission errors or delays.  Late submittals will not be accepted or considered for award.
  • All questions specific to the offering must be submitted via the online portal during the "Question" period of the offering. No exceptions.
