Online Vendor Registration
The Purchasing Division maintains a qualified list of vendors. A vendor registration application and commodity code listing can be completed online or through the Purchasing Division. The City requires each vendor to submit a Taxpayer Identification form (W-9 Form) as a part of the Vendor Registration Package. If the application registration is approved, all commodities and/or services for which a vendor desires to receive a bid invitation for, is recorded. When these commodities and/or services are advertised, the registered vendors will receive a bid notification. Note that it is the vendor’s responsibility to update their registration profile with the most current contact information.
