Beware of Fraudulent Activity!
The State Procurement Bureau has recently been made aware of fraudulent Purchase Orders and spoof emails issued to the vendor community. Always confirm the validity of any Purchase Order by contacting the agency making the request. Do not process any order that appears suspicious. Do not click on any hyperlinks from a suspicious email.
A list of State agency contact information is provided on the State of Montana website located at https://svc.mt.gov/doa/pubdir. Be vigilant by confirming valid State of Montana emails and phone numbers.
Effective immediately, the State Procurement Bureau will no longer accept hard copies of required insurance certificates. ALL insurance certificates must be provided in electronic format and emailed directly to the Contracts Officer managing the contract. Contractors are requested to notify their insurance provider if that provider mails hard copy insurance certificates to the State Procurement Bureau on behalf of the contractor.
For more information, contractors can contact the Contracts Officer managing their contract or call us at (406) 444-2575.
