For Vendors

In order to become an approved vendor, companies must go through a bid process. Region 7 Purchasing Cooperative facilitates thirty-nine (39) bids that are available at different times throughout the year.  Please note that submitting a catalog discount bid can place a company as an approved vendor through a multiple-vendor award; you are not bidding on any particular job/product/service/district.

  • Bid Notification RequestThis enables a vendor to receive e-mailed notification of bid opportunities, submit bid responses, and view bid awards.
