    What is an electronic quote (eQuote)?

    • eQuotes are a transaction type within the MyFloridaMarketPlace (MFMP) Sourcing application

    • Agency customers issue eQuotes to a small group of vendors

    When do you use an eQuote?

    • Create eQuotes using the following Methods of Procurements (MOP): – MOP B: request for quotes off State Term Contracts (STC) requiring quotes

    – MOP F: informal quote purchases not exceeding $35,000 (Category Two threshold)

    – MOP 16: Department of Lottery competitive quotes

  • Benefits of eQuotes

    • Similar look and feel to other MFMP applications

    • Detailed error messages

    • Provides consistency in requests to vendors

    • Vendors can be notified of events based on commodity codes
