Registration closes today at 9 pm EST for suppliers interested in participating in the Round 1 Recompete of the Medicare Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics, and Supplies Competitive Bidding Program.
Suppliers that do not register by the deadline cannot bid and are not eligible for contracts. Only suppliers that have registered and received a user ID and password will be able to access the online bidding system and submit bids. If the authorized official (AO) for your company has not already registered, CMS cannot guarantee that they will be able to complete the registration process before registration closes. Your company cannot bid and will not be eligible for a contract if your AO does not register before the deadline.
CMS also strongly recommends that a backup AO (BAO) register now if they have not already. The BAO role can assume the AO role if the AO can no longer fulfill their bidding responsibilities. If there is no BAO and the AO leaves the company, all end users associated with the company will lose access to the bidding system.
To register, follow the step-by-step instructions in the Individuals Authorized Access to CMS Computer Service Reference Guide posted on the CBIC website at www.dmecompetitivebid.com/palmetto/cbic.nsf/DocsCat/Home.
