Want to know the ins and outs of doing business with the city? Learn more about the procurement process and give us feedback at outreach events at City Hall on Nov. 15 and 17 (event flyer). In the meantime, please participate in a short survey about our procurement.

The city transitioned to a new supplier roster and solicitation management system on Jan. 1, with a new Solicitation Board. To find out more information about this transition, and instructions on how to register, please view our Supplier Roster Transition Letter. You can also register at the new Public Purchase system.

Bellevue and other cities use the Shared Procurement Portal to solicit for suppliers, contractors and consultants. Companies interested in doing business with the City of Bellevue are invited to register on the appropriate roster(s) on the portal. Learn more about the process with the Doing Business with the City web page.

The City of Bellevue 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.
