Frequently Asked Questions

How Do I Become A Vendor?  
To become an authorized vendor to the State of New Hampshire you will want to complete the Online Vendor Registration process via the “Vendor Registration” link. You will need a valid e-mail address in order to complete the process. Please note that this e-mail address will be where all bids and proposals will be sent so it should not be a person’s personal e-mail address whenever possible. If you do not have a valid email address you can download the Vendor Application and Alternate W-9. These documents may be sent via fax at 603-271-2700 or physical copies may be mailed to 25 Capital St, Rm 102, Concord NH 03301. As a security precaution, Tax ID’s, E-mails, and certain other information are not stored on the website and will not show for companies that utilize the Returning Vendor link.

No, there is no registration fee.

How long does it take to receive a vendor number?
If an application is successfully submitted online it will take roughly 3 business days. This does not include the original day of submission or holidays.

Expansion of Comprehensive Suicide Prevention Across the U.S.
Department of Health and Human Services
Centers for Disease Control - NCIPC

Application Due Date:  June 6, 2022

CDC's Injury Center announces availability of fiscal year 2022 funds to implement CDC- RFA-CE22-2204, Expansion of Comprehensive Suicide Prevention across the United States. This funding opportunity supports implementation and evaluation of a comprehensive public health approach to suicide prevention in the U.S.

This approach a) convenes and connects multi-sectoral partners (e.g., public health, mental health, people with lived experience); b) uses data to identify vulnerable populations (i.e., disproportionately affected populations [DAP]), understand contributors to suicide, and track trends in morbidity/mortality; c) assesses gaps in existing programs in the jurisdiction (d) implements complementary strategies with the best available evidence from Preventing Suicide: A Technical Package of Policy, Programs, and Practices; and e) communicates trends, progress, successes, and lessons learned to partners.

The approach is rigorously evaluated with a focus on continuous quality improvement and sustained impact. The purpose is to implement and evaluate the comprehensive approach, with attention to one or more DAP, (e.g., veterans, rural communities, tribal populations, LGBTQ, homeless, other) that account for a significant proportion of the suicide burden and/or have suicide rates greater than the general population in a jurisdiction(s) (e.g., state, county, tribe). Key outcomes include a 10% reduction in suicide morbidity and mortality in the DAP(s), in the chosen jurisdiction.
