When the City has open Requests for Proposals (RFPs), Requests for Bids (RFBs), or Requests for Qualifications (RFQs), they will be on the Bids and Proposal page. The documents include instructions for submitting bids and proposals, including deadlines and staff contact information. Please note that submissions for RFPs that are restricted to the pre-qualified list will only be accepted by vendors on the pre-qualified list. If the submission is listed as an electronic-only response, please ensure enough time to enter all the required information before the deadline. The City will not accept and is not responsible for late submissions.
