Orange County now utilizes an online vendor application system. New vendors as well as existing vendors will be required to utilize the system to be registered.
Any vendor who wishes to do business with Orange County must go through the Vendor Application Process. Vendors are still encouraged to visit this site under current bids to see any applicable postings.
A completed vendor application does not entitle a vendor to any particular solicitation. It is the potential bidder's responsibility to periodically check this website and to make contact with the Purchasing Division. A vendor must complete the online application for each vendor list you want to be included on.
