Various embodiments are directed to systems and methods for requesting commodities/items from a plurality of competing vendors. In various embodiments, vendor information/data indicative of commodities/items offered by each vendor is received and stored, request information/data is received from a consumer indicative of the commodities/items desired, as well as any additional request parameters. The system filters the vendor information/data to identify those vendors who satisfy the request parameters, and displays a graphical user interface identifying these vendors to the consumer. The consumer may then select one or more of the identified vendors, and the system enables access to a bidding tool for each of the selected vendors to submit a detailed bid/response to provide the goods or services to the consumer. The consumer may then select one or more of the bids/responses and confirm the commodities/items requested.
