Vendor / Bid List
Joining the Vendor Database
The City maintains a vendor database for one year and is used as a resource in locating prospective vendors. To become a part of the vendor database, complete the online PlanetBid Vendor Form
Placement of the information into the Vendor Database does not guarantee the vendor will be contacted by the City on subsequent bids. However, every effort is made to utilize vendors interested in doing business with the City and to incorporate those firms into the purchasing process. Please note that due to the overwhelming number of vendors on the City’s Engineering and Construction Consultants list, any project exceeding $50,000 will be advertised on PlanetBids and the following trade papers: Bluebook, BidAmerica, Construction Market Data, the local newspaper and on the City’s website
