Purchasing & Bid Opportunities

Vendor Application

If you would like to be added to the City of Gainesville's vendor listing, please print and mail or email a completed vendor application and IRS Form W-9 to the purchasing division. As stated in the vendor application, the required documents must be provided to the City, and an "active vendor" status must be rendered before business can be conducted. Thank you for your interest in doing business with the City.

Bid Opportunities

The City of Gainesville invites all vendors and contractors to visit bid opportunities on a regular basis. The City will list each Invitation to Bid, Request for Proposal and Request for Qualifications on this webpage 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's purchasing ordinance. If you have any questions concerning a specific bid, contact the correspondent listed in the bid package. All questions regarding specific bid packages must be submitted in writing.

Disseminating information

The City will post most addenda for specific bids to the City's Bid Opportunities webpage and disseminate this information to all known bidders; however, it is the bidder's responsibility to check this webpage 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 nonresponsive or non-responsible.
