Bids Online

In order to make contracting opportunities as convenient, accessible, secure and reliable as possible for vendors, Richmond uses BidsOnline® to post requests for quotes, invitations to bid, requests for proposals and information online. 

Registered vendors are automatically notified of Bid Alerts, changes and addenda, and may search for the latest contracting opportunities available, request and download documents and bid electronically (if applicable) on all open requests up until bid closing. And it’s free! 

For register and view current bid opportunities, visit or contact the City’s Purchasing Division at 510-620-6699 or
