Doing Business with the City

Overview for Vendors

The City of Longwood welcomes the opportunity to do business with interested merchants in the community. The City's Purchasing Division encourages participation by all qualified business persons offering commodities and services that may be used by the City. The Division is tasked with the responsibility of economical acquisition of quality materials and services that will assure efficient operation of City Government.

To that end, it is essential that interested business persons become familiar with the City's Purchasing Manual and Vendor Guide. This website will serve as a general guide. Specific questions and concerns not addressed here should be directed to the Purchasing Manager.

The City of Longwood Purchasing Division has contracted with DemandStar.com for the maintenance of an automated vendor list. 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. To have your firm placed on the vendor list, contact DemandStar.com for subscription details. The application asks for general information about your business and lists the commodities and services the firm wishes to sell to the City.
