Attention Vendors! If you customarily send a token of appreciation to your customers during the Holiday Season, the City asks that you please not send any item to City employees or offices. There are many worthy organizations in our community that would be happy to receive such items, and will be able to see that they go to people in need. Your assistance is appreciated.
Welcome to bidsONLINE - your one stop shop for becoming an official City of El Paso goods and services supplier...
If you are a consultant, service provider, contractor, vendor, or supplier, this site is dedicated to you. The El Paso bidsONLINE website is your headquarters for conveniently located and detailed information about current bidding and contract opportunities. The Purchasing Division of the City of El Paso Financial Services Department purchases and contracts for a wide variety of supplies, services, equipment, and expert assistance to provide our community with a full range of municipal services, and programs. The Purchasing Division is also responsible for the centralized procurement of goods and technical or maintenance services for the City of El Paso, Sun Metro, El Paso International Airport and the City-County Health District.
We continually seek vendors, suppliers, and contractors who can provide quality products and services at competitive prices. The Purchasing Division uses competitive bidding procedures to select vendors, and encourages vendor participation in our bidding activities. See the Solicitations link for a list of items that we currently have out to bid. Bid Packages can be downloaded directly from our web site. (Please note that construction bids are not available for download. Plans and specifications must be picked up at the Construction Bid Section of the Purchasing Division).
This web site includes many features to assist you in doing business with the City of El Paso.
We encourage you to sign up to receive our bidMail service, which automatically sends a listing of solicitations to your inbox every week! Bids and all amendments (non- construction) can be downloaded from our “Solicitations” page. All that is required is that you visit the “Sign Up and Sign In” page to sign up for this service. Once you sign up, an account will be created for you, so there is no need to sign up every time you visit this site, just sign in. The “Conference and Meetings” page will list any pre-bid or other related meetings for a solicitation. A complete listing of bid tabs is available for download on the “Bid Tabs” Page. A convenient “Bid Search” feature will allow you to search solicitations by a keyword. The “Forms” page contains a vendor set up form (please note that it is not a requirement to be on the City's vendor list to submit a bid). The “Policies”, “FAQ’s” (frequently asked questions) and “Glossary” pages also contain valuable information for vendors.
We hope that you find this website as a helpful tool to assist you in doing business with the City of El Paso.
