Douglas County Launches New Procurement Platform — Vendor Registration Required

Douglas County will now be posting procurement opportunities and accepting electronic bid submissions using the bids&tenders platform.

Douglas County has made this platform available at no cost to vendors, so you don't have to pay a subscription fee. Register as a vendor now at bids&tenders so you don't miss out on any new opportunities.

Create a vendor account on the bids&tenders portal via the link below. Set up your account to receive notifications for future bidding opportunities across the entire bids&tenders platform. If you already have an account you don't need to create a new one, just sign in using your existing login information.


Does your business offer after-hours services?

When setting up your vendor account, you can opt into the "Emergency Vendor Database." This allows organizations like Douglas County to access your after-hours information if an emergency arises. You can opt in or opt out of this function within your bids&tenders account profile at any time.
