Occasionally you may need a new solicitation that is very similar to a past solicitation. In the eMaryland Marketplace Advantage (eMMA), you can duplicate a solicitation rather than create a new one from scratch. This Quick Reference Guide (QRG) shows you how to duplicate an existing solicitation.

NOTE: You cannot duplicate a "Cancelled" solicitation. 


You will need the BPM number in eMMA for the solicitation you wish to duplicate. 

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Access eMMA at https://emma.maryland.gov and log in with your credentials.

    NOTE: Depending on your agency, you may only need to click the State SSO Login (Secure Auth) button or the MDOT SSO Login (MSAzure) button and log in with your credentials.
  2. Click Sourcing tab at top and Browse Sourcing from the drop-down menu.
    The Sourcing tab and the Browse Sourcing Projects in the drop-down menu.

  3. Click the Duplicate Project button.
    The Duplicate Project button.

  4. Enter BPM number you want to duplicate in the field. The drop-down menu should provide that number. If it doesn’t, click See All at the bottom of the drop-down menu. Try to search for that BPM there and select it. If you still don’t see it, then you cannot duplicate that project. The Project to duplicate field and the See All option in the drop-down menu.

  5. Click the BPM number from the drop-down menu. A pop up displays.

  6. Select the items to copy and click Copy and close button.
    The Items available to copy to the new solicitation, and the Copy and close button.

The screen will show the new solicitation (may take a moment to show).
