Purchasing Division

Welcome to the Purchasing Division of Merced County and thank you for your interest in doing business with us and providing products and services to the County. 

Procurement of goods and services

The County will be moving away from paper-based bidding in favor of electronic procurement via ProcureWare. All vendors interested in doing business with the County will be required to register (at no cost) on our supplier portal site.

New Bids

New bids will be posted on our supplier portal site so be sure to visit the website and register your business to ensure you receive relevant Bid/RFP notifications automatically. There is a tutorial on the site to assist you with registration. Once registered, suppliers may obtain solicitation documents, receive notification of solicitation updates, and submit and update their confidential proposals online. Hardcopy submittals will no longer be accepted, unless otherwise specified.

To ensure receipt of e-mailed bid invitations, please add donotreply@procureware.com to your e-mail safe senders list.

Past Bids

Past Bids (pre-9/9/2020) will be available to view in our Bid/RFP Archive Site.
