The State of Montana uses eMACS, short for the Montana Acquisition and Contracting System, for eProcurement. eMACS provides efficient procurement services, contract management tools, and vendor management services.

For State of Montana vendors, this eProcurement system means:

• Re-registering company information using the new vendor management application;
• Submitting bid responses online; and
• Submitting contracting documents, including payment info via the new system upon request.
