Purchasing Vendor InformationVendor Guide to Business with St. Lucie County
St. Lucie County welcomes the opportunity to do business with interested merchants. The County's Purchasing Division is interested in fostering participation by all qualified businesspersons offering commodities and services that may be used by the County. The Purchasing Division has the responsibility to make the most economical acquisition of quality materials and services that will assure efficient operation of County Government.
To that end, it is essential that interested businesspersons become familiar with the County's purchasing policies and procedures. This website will serve as a general guide. Specific questions and concerns not addressed here should be directed to the Purchasing staff.
The Purchasing Division has contracted with Onvia by DemandStar (800-711-1712), for the maintenance of an automated vendor list for formal sealed bids. This list categorizes each vendor by commodity codes for the specific goods or services offered by the vendor. Businesses who have subscribed to the vendor list are notified by fax or e-mail whenever a formal sealed bid has been issued for the commodity or service offered by the vendor, therefore, St. Lucie County’s vendor registration is not utilized for formal sealed bids. By utilizing this notification source, the County is able to reach countless vendors while saving valuable staff man-hours.
