Bids & RFPs
The City of Monterey has transitioned from a paper-based solicitation process to an online electronic solicitation and vendor registration system, hosted by Procure Now.
Bidders are encouraged to make sure they have the latest version of the request for bid or proposal before submission. A bid protest process is available for vendors wishing to challenge solicitations or bid awards.
To register your business to be a vendor for the City of Monterey, vendors must complete the Vendor Registration through Procure Now and provide all required documents. All current and future vendors should register and maintain an updated profile on the site. The site allows you to choose the products/services in which you have an interest. Through this registration, our files will remain current and you can receive automatic notifications of bid or quote opportunities. If you have any problems with the registration process, please refer to the Help Article.
