Welcome to Alabama's Vendor Self Service

STAARS Vendor Self Service (VSS) allows vendors to register an account to do business with the State of Alabama, subscribe to bid notifications, and view financial transactions online. For information on how to register, subscribe, and use VSS, click How to Use VSS at the top of the page.

The State of Alabama will only accept bids from subscribed vendors with an active VSS account. However, you may view business opportunities and awards from the State without a VSS account, using the Public Access button on the left.

For best results, use Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer (v9+) with pop-up blockers disabled.
