The CBIC has launched a new communication portal to interact with bidding suppliers. The Connexion portal will be the only method the Competitive Bidding Implementation Contractor (CBIC) will use to communicate with suppliers and they will not be mailing contract offers as they have in years past. The portal is finally open for registration. Any supplier that has participated in the R2RC/NMORC is urged to begin registration right away.
Authorized officials and back up authorized officials must first be registered in the CMS EIDM system. If you previously registered for and received an IACS User ID during R2RC/NMORC the information has been migrated into the EIDM system. Once the authorized official (AO) logs into EIDM, they can request access to the Connexion portal. There are verification protocols to validate the AO’s PECOS information and NSC application information to the EIDM profile. If you encounter difficulties you should contact the CBIC directly at 1-877-577-5331.
