CAMMNET CONNECT is OCTA’s online tool for firms to build business and partnering relationships with other firms interested in OCTA business opportunities.

Each wall post on the CAMMNET CONNECT Facebook page is directly related to an OCTA solicitation opportunity posted on the CAMM NET Website. You can network with other firms interested in a particular solicitation by commenting on its CAMMNET CONNECT wall post.

CAMM NET's Planholder’s List Report feature makes it easy for Prime and Subcontractors to connect and develop partnering relationships for OCTA projects.

All companies are required to complete a brief survey when downloading formal Invitation for Bids or Request for Proposals packages. The survey asks if they are planning on participating in submitting a bid or proposal as a prime or a subcontractor. Depending on their answer, they are provided an opportunity to indicate the services they either need or can provide and their contact information.

Data captured from the vendor’s profile and their answers to the download survey questions are used to create an online printable and searchable Planholder's List Report. Vendors can also choose to receive update emails daily notifying them of any changes to the Planholder’s List Report.

The Planholder’s List Report can be filtered and either downloaded as a .csv file or printed from a printer friendly html page. Companies can also search for closed solicitation Planholder’s List Reports to help them start the teaming process well in advance of the next posted solicitation.

Download the Planholder’s List Report Guide to learn more about this useful tool.
