Bidder Registration Info

Buy A&M (BAM) allows Texas A&M University to issue and receive quotes, proposals, and bids online, and allows Vendors to self-register as bidders. There is no cost to Vendors for participating in the bid process, and Texas A&M does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, religion, gender, disability or veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law. Registering on BAM does not a guarantee the receipt of any bid or the award of any purchase order.

Vendors already registered through the State of Texas Centralized Master Bidders List (CMBL) should still register in BAM in order to 1) automatically receive email notifications from Texas A&M about bid opportunities related to the commodity codes selected during the registration process, 2) respond online to Bid Invitations and Requests for Proposal, and 3) be issued Purchase Orders. Vendors to whom Purchase Orders are issued will receive an email notification instructing them to login to the BAM Vendor Portal, view the PO and acknowledge receipt, and print the PO if they wish.

Vendors already registered on the CMBL are already established as a Vendor of record in the BAM data. However, if you haven’t previously accessed BAM please contact Texas A&M’s Vendor Administrator via email, vendorhelp@tamu.edu, to receive your login and password credentials.

Vendors not yet registered on the CMBL are asked to please register directly into BAM through the online Vendor portal at https://buy.tamus.edu, and select the Register link. If you receive a message while registering that your Federal Tax ID already exists in BAM please contact Texas A&M’s Vendor Administrator via email, vendorhelp@tamu.edu, to receive your login and password credentials. If for any reason you cannot complete the registration process once begun, BAM allows you to save what you have entered and return at a later date and complete the process by accessing the BuyA&M login screen at https://buy.tamus.edu and selecting the Complete Registration link.
