Well, the reason for using accepting is that they want the public to know that they are now soliciting bids, whereas normally they wouldn't be doing that. Accepting seems to be the traditional word of choice in this kind of situation.

Technically, however, there's nothing wrong with saying receiving or taking in this context. They're perfectly fine alternatives -- although not traditionally used.

The only one that wouldn't work is getting.
