City of Douglas Vendor Application Process
The Purchasing Division of the City of Douglas Finance Department would like to encourage vendors and businesses to participate in bid opportunities offered throughout the year.
Vendors who wish to be listed on the master bid list should complete a "Bidders List Application." Follow this link to download the application. This will open the bidder’s application so the vendor may print the application. Completely fill all information requested on the application and mail or deliver to the Purchasing Division. No applications will be mailed to vendors, however, vendors may pick up applications at the Purchasing office located at 123 W. Cherry Street, Douglas, Georgia, 31533.
Once the application has been received by the Purchasing office, the vendor will be placed on the Master Vendor List. The vendor should receive bids relevant to the type of service they offer. If a vendor would like to be notified automatically of all requests for bids, the vendor should sign up to receive alerts through the City of Douglas website by visiting the website home address, and click on Notify Me module, which is located to the left of the home page.
Access the vendor registry to let us know what services your company offers, so bids can be sent to you specifically based on what service your company provides.
