Registering with the City Purchasing DivisionThe first step to selling goods or services to the City is to register with the Purchasing Division. The registration process requires you to select commodity codes for which you want to receive bid notifications. The City uses the National Institute of Government Purchasing (NIGP) commodities and service code list. You should list all commodity codes that you believe would apply to your business. The City will make vendor selections from this database.
While registering as a vendor with the City, the City places that vendor on the bid list for the commodities and services selected, although it does not guarantee notification of bid opportunities. The City will make every attempt to notify registered bidders of bid opportunities. All bids will be posted on this website and advertised in the local newspaper.
For projects over $25,000 which will be posted to the website page Procurement Opportunities, you may register for automatic email notifications by clicking on the top left icon and entering your email address. You will be notified of new bid and addenda postings.
