Important dates regarding the Round 2021 competitive bidding program were release yesterday by the CBIC (Competitive Bidding Implementation Contractor). The timeline below indicates the type of notice, date the notice will be available on Connexion, and the deadline for bidders to respond to the notice.
All bidders will be notified of the Notice of Preliminary Bid Evaluation. However, Notice of Covered Document Review Findings and Required Action will only be sent to bidders who submitted a required financial document by the covered document review date. Notice to Substantiate Your Bid(s) will only be sent to bidders who are asked by the CBIC to verify their bid amount(s).
Responses to all the notices must be uploaded in Connexion by the deadline—the CBIC is not accepting any other form of communication.
Bidders will be receiving notifications on their bid evaluation through the email that is recorded in the CMS Enterprise Portal. It is important that bidders maintain the correct email address in the Portal.
