If you are interested in selling products or providing services to the City of Woodinville, the following information will be helpful:
Shared Procurement Portal
The City is a partner in the Shared Procurement Portal which consists of seven public agencies in the greater Seattle area who have partnered together to create a regional website that consolidates procurement services, making it easy for government and businesses to work together. This website provides businesses a one-stop shop for procurement opportunities via the online roster system Public Purchase. Businesses may apply to Public Purchase by going to the SPP's Vendor Registration page. Sign up for Public Purchase is free.
Materials, Supplies & Equipment
Purchases of material, supplies and equipment costing $15,000 or less do not require a formal competitive bid or public notice. Price quotations for such purchases are typically solicited either through the City's online roster program at Public Purchase or via email. Purchases of material, supplies, and equipment costing $7,500 or less do not require a competitive process.
Public works include all work, construction, alteration, repair or improvement other than ordinary maintenance, executed at the cost of the City. For public work projects under $300,000, the City may utilize its Small Public Works Roster (RCW 39.04.155) to solicit bids. You can sign up for free for the City's small public works roster at Public Purchase. Current opportunities are listed below.
For projects over $300,000, the City advertises in local newspapers and posts on bid notifications on its website.
The City contracts for various types of services including maintenance, engineering, legal and recreation services. Depending on the estimated cost of the work and other considerations, the City may issue either a Request for Proposals (RFPs) or Request for Qualifications (RFQs). Per State and City policy, for certain types of professional services, legal services and recreation services, the City may review, evaluate and select consultants based off their Statements of Qualifications (SOQ).
To view the City's current RFP's and RFQ's, visit the Requests for Proposals page on the City's website. In addition to posting solicitation information on its website, the City advertises larger projects in the Legal Notice section of its official newspaper, Woodinville Weekly, and the Daily Journal of Commerce.
Notifications about most solicitations are also sent electronically to businesses registered on the City's online roster program managed by Public Purchase. To register for free, go to Public Purchase, click on "Go to Register" where you can select the types of goods or services your business provides. The City uses NIGP codes to classify what types of goods or services to solicit.
