The Escambia County Office of Purchasing, in partnership with the Gulf Coast Minority Chamber of Commerce, will host a free vendor open house and ribbon cutting event Wednesday, March 22, from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. The open house will take place in the purchasing office on the second floor of the Matt Langley Bell III Building, located at 213 Palafox Place.
During the open house, Escambia County Purchasing representatives will review the procurement process, bid packages, vendor registry and bonds as well as a new task order program. Staff will be available to answer questions during the event as well. This event is open to current vendors and anyone who is interested in registering as a vendor with Escambia County.
Escambia County encourages local, small, women and minority owned businesses to register as vendors with the county. Businesses recorded on the vendor registry have an immediate advantage to act on any advertised bid solicitations that fit the description of their business. There is no charge to register as a vendor. Learn more about Escambia County vendor registration here.
