How to Become a Vendor
The Purchasing Department maintains a vendor list for products and services procured for the City of Venice. If you wish to participate, you can down load the vendor's application below, or you can request this application by writing to:
City of Venice
401 West Venice Avenue
Venice, Florida 34285
Please fill in the form completely, including the codes to which your services apply. A completed W-9, Request for Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification must be completed and returned with the application. Once received, either electronically or by mail, the form will be forwarded to the Finance Department where it will be registered as a vendor of the city. The Purchasing Department will also keep a record of this application, and hold it in an active file designated by your specific expertise. Once received, the City of Venice will make every possible effort to assure your organization is contacted in the event of a bid solicitation pertaining to your product or service (when needed by the city). No guarantee or warranty is made that you will be included in the mailing or faxing of bids.
Vendor Information Alterations
It is the responsibility of the vendor to notify this department with any changes that will alter the mailing or faxing of bids to that vendor. Information such as phone and fax number changes, address changes, etc., must be faxed, mailed, or e-mailed to this department. Any outdated information will be cause for the vendor to be dropped from the Vendor List. A new Vendor Application must then be filled out and sent to this department, listing the current information, with routing options as above.
On The Vendor List? What Happens Now?
After your name has been placed on the Vendors List, you should receive solicitations for bids, R.Q.'s and RFP's for formal bids ($100,000 or more). The commodity code you select is what will determine the bid you receive information for. Bids will also be available to pick up at Venice City Hall.
