The Purchasing Division maintains a bidder's list for all classes of commodities and services which are regularly purchased and needed by City departments.
The bidder's list is compiled of vendors who have expressed interest in being contacted when the City needs such items. These lists are researched by the Purchasing Division prior to soliciting bids.
You have a greater assurance of being notified of such needs by being on our list.
How do I get on the bidder's list?
Complete the City's vendor application form and forward or deliver it to the address on the form. This form will tell us about your company and enable us to place you on our bidder's list.
It is best if you or your sales representative bring the completed form to our Purchasing Division at City Hall. The purchasing receptionist will direct you to the Purchasing Division where your information will be kept on file for a period of one year. Bring with you any other information that you may want the City to know about your company (product line card or catalog).
The Purchasing Officer will interview you in order to get a better understanding of your company's procedures. You will also get a chance to meet the Purchasing Officer in person to help develop a business relationship and have a name with which to do your follow-up calls.
