Registration and Solicitations

 
 

St. Louis County is interested in fostering participation by all qualified business persons offering commodities and services that may be used by the county. 

Solicitation is a process used to communicate procurement requirements and to request responses from interested contractors/vendors.

Solicitations are defined as either formal or informal. 
  • Formal solicitation means a solicitation which requires a sealed response.
  • Informal solicitation means a solicitation which does not require a sealed response.

Purchasing Division

Contractors/Vendors are encouraged to register with the St. Louis County Purchasing Division. Registration will assist the Purchasing team in connecting contractors/vendors to upcoming formal and informal solicitations.
