The platform allows you to search by:
- Certifications & Qualifications
- Geographic Regions
- Industry Sector
- NAICS & SIC
- Products & Services

POST YOUR RFQs, RFIs, RFPs & MORE
In the Marketplace Exchange Center, businesses can connect and discover new market opportunities by posting and responding to RFQs, RFIs, and RFPs.
The Center also contains a surplus material area for repurposing and facilitating the reuse of valuable materials. The platform links manufacturers that have usable waste to other organizations or companies who can use it – thus decreasing waste in the industry.
Our FloridaMakes Supplier Development team is available to identify qualified manufacturers and ascertain the fulfillment of needs. Having a choice of manufacturers reduces single source risks by gaining alternative suppliers in times of disaster.
