Thinking about bidding on a County contract? Attend an event for bidders and get answers to your questions about how to prepare a bid.
Vendor Outreach: Goods & Services
Vendors of goods and services who are interested in responding to County solicitations are encouraged to attend our weekly Vendor Outreach Events.
Every Wednesday, 10:30-11:30 a.m.
Location: see Upcoming Events for location for your preferred date.
During COVID, all Vendor Outreach events will be held online.
Vendor Outreach events are not specific to any single project. Everyone is welcome.
Bidders Conferences/Pre-Bid Events
For all formal bids, the County hosts a:
- Bidders Conference (Goods & Services) — optional, unless otherwise specified
- Pre-bid Event (Construction) — usually mandatory
Bidders Conferences and Pre-bid Events are specific to each RFP/Q and give vendors the opportunity to ask questions about the contract and the bid process.
In most cases, these questions and the answers are then issued as a Q&A document, available to the public. Consult your RFP/Q for key dates.
SLEBs and smaller vendors are encouraged to attend these events to have the opportunity to meet vendors who are looking for subcontracting partners.
Check Upcoming Events for information about pre-bid events and conferences, networking, technical assistance, training and other outreach events.
