The purpose of the City's Purchasing Division is to maintain continuity of services and supplies to support the various City agencies and departments. The City's Purchasing Division also promotes transparency, ethics and efficiency in conducting the City’s procurement efforts. This page contains active citywide listings for bids, Requests for Proposals (RFPs), and Requests for Qualifications (RFQs).  We also encourage vendors and suppliers to register with us to be notified when bids, RFPs and RFQs are issued.

Vendor Registration

We appreciate your interest in doing business with the City of Newport Beach. The City is always interested in securing responsible suppliers who can meet its needs promptly, economically and in the desired quality and quantities. It is the aim of the City to open lines of communication between the supplier community and the City and to promote business relationships with the City of Newport Beach. 

Vendor Registration – PlanetBids
In order to ensure open interactions with potential vendors and to conduct a fair, transparent and competitive procurement process, the City of Newport Beach is facilitating an online vendor registration system through PlanetBids.

By registering as a vendor to the City, potential vendors will be automatically notified via email of the City’s Request for Estimate (RFE), Request for Bid (RFB), Request for Qualifications (RFQ) and Request for Proposal (RFP) solicitations. While these solicitations have always been posted on the City’s website, the PlanetBids system will enable vendors to be more connected to these opportunities as they arise. This proactive approach will eliminate the obligation of vendors to constantly check the City’s website for bid or proposal opportunities. The PlanetBids system can also be used to view bid and proposal award results and history.

Registration with PlanetBids is free of charge and there is never any charge to be notified of bid and proposal opportunities from the City of Newport Beach or to view award history.
