Learn about contracting opportunities with the County and how to register online for Procure-2-Pay and eRFP

SANTA CLARA COUNTY, CALIF. – As part of an on-going effort to reach local businesses who are interested in conducting business with the County and may not know where to start, the County of Santa Clara is holding weekly on-site vendor registration events on Wednesdays through December 19. The events aim to reach vendors who are interested in providing goods or services to the County but have yet to conduct business transactions with the County.

The County of Santa Clara conducts solicitations for a variety of commodities and services including: computer hardware and software, software maintenance and support, medical and surgical equipment and accessories, medical equipment maintenance, office furniture, furniture installation, moving services, building construction and repair services, advertising, environmental management, electrical services, and janitorial services, as well as consultancy services related to the following fields: technology, medical, legal, government, and non-profit community services.

WEEKLY ON-SITE REGISTRATION EVENTS:

The weekly events are on Wednesdays from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., on the first floor of the Procurement Department headquarters at 2310 North First Street, San Jose. It’s easy. Drop in, register as a vendor and begin receiving notifications of upcoming solicitations or search current contract and one-time opportunities.

Registering as a vendor is the first step to be eligible to compete for a County contract or one- time purchase order. Businesses will be guided through the vendor registration process in-person by County staff and will have the opportunity to learn more about additional outreach events for vendors in the near future.

REGISTER ONLINE:

Individuals and companies can also register in both systems online, from the comfort of their own home, to receive notifications of upcoming solicitations and search current solicitations. There are no fees to register, search or participate.

The County’s new Chief Procurement Officer, Miriam Singer, provides oversight of the procurement and contracting efforts to ensure the County obtains the best value in the procurement of goods and services to meet such objectives; to accomplish that goal, the office is dedicated to invigorating outreach efforts to the vendor community.

“Working together with our internal client departments and agencies along with the business community, we strive to provide competitive procurement solutions to ensure that the taxpayers we serve will receive high quality services at the very best value,” Singer said.
