Thank you for your interest in the County of Riverside. The County of Riverside Purchasing department is constantly looking for suppliers of the varied goods and services it procures. What do we purchase? Almost everything. The business of the County government consumes large amounts of goods and services which the Purchasing Department tasks to procure. The department generally creates bids for most items, and in the case of repetitively purchased items, establishes long term contract that may be for periods of one to five years in length. 

With the exception of Public Works (construction type bids) and a few specialty bids, most bids for goods and services procured by the Purchasing Department are completed through the use of a third party bidding site called Public Purchase. By clicking in the Purchasing Department Open Bids link in the Bid box above, you will have the option to view Public Purchase Open Bids or Public Works under $175,000 and Other non-Public Purchase Bids. For large  value Public Works bids or bids not done by the Purchasing Department, you can choose links to some of the other departments by clicking  “Other County Dept/Agency Bids” We invite you to register with Public Purchase and participate in our fair and open bidding process for the goods and services your provide.
