Register to Receive Notifications of Contracting Opportunities
Do you want to increase your chances of receiving notifications of new procurements and contract opportunities? The Purchasing Division is utilizing the Public Group’s Public Vendor and Public Purchase for its electronic procurement needs (Brea’s eProcurement Portal).
Contractors, suppliers, and vendors will be able to register online; receive automatic email notifications of new procurements and contract opportunities; download documents, drawings, forms, etc.; submit questions online; receive answers to questions via addendums, results of procurements, and award notifications – all electronically. Additionally, vendors can have access to other entities that utilize the same procurement system and broaden their opportunities even further.
