Purchasing & Bid Opportunities
If you would like to be added to the City of Gainesville's vendor listing, please print and mail a completed Vendor Application and IRS Form W-9 to the Purchasing Department. As stated in the Vendor Application, the required documents must be provided to the City, and an "Active Vendor" status must be rendered before a business can be conducted. Thank you for your interest in doing business with the City of Gainesville.
The City of Gainesville invites all vendors and contractors to visit bid opportunities on a regular basis. We will list each Invitation to Bid, Request for Proposal, and Request for Qualifications on this web page when the City is ready to receive bids.
Please read each bid package carefully to ensure all requirements are met when submitting a bid package. The City reserves the right to reject any or all bids based upon the guidelines outlined in the City of Gainesville's Purchasing Ordinance. If you have any questions concerning a specific bid, contact the correspondent as listed in the bid package. All questions regarding specific bid packages must be submitted in writing.
The City will post most addenda for specific bids to the City's Bid Opportunities web page and disseminate this information to all known bidders; however, it is the Bidder's responsibility to check this web page for the addenda prior to submitting a bid package.
Bidders without the appropriate documentation as listed in the bid package or any addenda may be deemed non-responsive or nonresponsible.
