Compressed Files (.zip)
CMCOA RFP/Renewal Application files are saved in a compressed format, often called "zip." Zip files allow multiple documents from different programs (Word, Excel, etc.) to be saved in one file. This file can then be downloaded to a local computer.
1. Right click on the desired file and select "Save target as."
2. Save the file to the local computer...remember where it was saved!
3. Close the box that appeared after you have saved it...do not open.
4. Find the file and right click on the icon that looks like a file with a zipper and select "extract all." (note: icon may have a different appearance based on the compression program on the computer).
In the event the zip file does not work, contact the contract manager.
