Special Operational Equipment (SOE) Ordering Process

If you have not registered a FOPOC for your account and need to do so, please use the BidWiser FOPOC Designation form. Use these instructions to complete the Customer Registration FOPOC Designation Form if needed. Customers will receive a hard stop notification upon initial order submission should a FOPOC not be registered.
