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 businesspersons 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 the efficient operation of city government.
To that end, it is essential that interested businesspersons become familiar with the City's Purchasing Manual and Vendor 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 that have subscribed to the vendor list are notified by fax or email 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.
