A message from the Director
Welcome to the County of Santa Clara Procurement Department Website!
Santa Clara County welcomes vendors and contractors who are interested in providing goods and services to the County. We encourage the business community to participate in competitive business processes that result in significant contracting opportunities. The County awards approximately $2 billion in contracts annually which represents a significant opportunity to increase the number of qualified vendors, and competition to establish best value contracts for our community. It is a great privilege to work with the fine professional team of County of Santa Clara in service to the community. Working together with our internal client departments and agencies along with the business community, we strive to provide competitive procurement solutions to ensure that the taxpayers we serve will receive high quality services at the very best value.
We are delighted to roll out initiatives for improving and streamlining the contracting and procurement processes through robust implementation of e-Procurement solutions and significant vendor outreach and education. In short, our vision is to move away from tactical, paper-based and manual transactions to strategic sourcing methods, and electronic solutions that are nimble and easy to navigate.
We hope that the information available on our site will provide a valuable resource for vendors and the public we serve, while providing transparency and opportunities for inclusion.
