    Bellevue procures products and services necessary for the city's operation. The city offers bid opportunities and requests for proposals or qualifications.

    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.
