• Doing Business with IT

    Interested in doing business with IT?

    The Information Technology department is interested in working with vendors and service providers skilled in building and maintaining technological solutions to be used throughout the City of Bellevue.

    IT follows the standard method for procuring products and services necessary for the City's operation. The Procurement Services division within Finance oversees this effort through managing the competitive process for purchasing goods and services, contracting and supplier maintenance.

    Supplier Roster

    The first step in the process is to become an approved supplier. Information and resources to help you become an approved supplier are located in Vendor Services.

    Go to Vendor Services to learn more about:

    • The Supplier Roster
    • Procurement documents
    • Contract templates
    • Vendor payment information

    Solicitation Board

    Within the Solicitation Board, the City of Bellevue offers bid and proposal to help you locate projects and requests for work. Here are the three different ways the city publishes work requests:

    • Bid Opportunities - For public works and large materials, supplies and equipment procurements, the city will issue an invitation to bid - a formal sealed bid process that typically results in a public bid opening.
    • Requests for Proposals - A Request for Proposals (RFP) is a method of soliciting competitive proposals for a defined scope of work. An RFP considers and evaluates factors to measure qualification, delivery and service reputation as well as price.
    • Requests for Qualifications - A Request for Qualifications (RFQ) is a method of soliciting competitive proposals that formally considers and evaluates factors to measure firms on the basis of demonstrated competency and qualification rather than price.
