If your company is awarded a contract, the door is open to the enormous local government marketplace!

Register with the BuyBoard.

The first step in participation is to visit the Vendor page and register as a new supplier/vendor. Complete the form and create a unique login name and password for future use. You will receive a confirmation e-mail after the information has been added to the Registration List.

Notice: Registering does not give your company automatic participation in the BuyBoard. Vendors must be awarded a BuyBoard proposal to participate.

What you need for BuyBoard vendor registration:

  • Tax ID number
  • Annual gross sales
  • Years in business
  • Special classifications such as minority-owned or woman-owned business

The six-step registration process includes:

  1. Accepting the BuyBoard terms and conditions.
  2. Providing your company information.
  3. Providing primary address information.
  4. Vendor classification.
  5. Providing primary user information.
  6. Reviewing & Submitting the registration.

After you are registered

As a registered vendor, you will receive e-mail notifications of future proposal opportunities for the commodity categories selected in your registration.

The second step is to respond to one of the proposal opportunities and ultimately be awarded a contract by the Cooperative Board.

A list of contracts can be found on the Contract Expiration Schedule (pdf).
