How do vendors learn about contracting opportunities?
For small-scale contracts, the Purchasing Department will typically contact vendors directly for the purpose of obtaining quotes. For larger contracts, RFP or bid announcements are usually posted in local print publications, and on this website.
The Vendor Application should be completed if your business is interested in being notified when a solicitation is advertised for services that your business provides. A notice will be sent by email or fax to the address or number you provide.
