Vendor Registration

County of Orange On-line Bid Management System

By registering with the County online bidding system provider, you will automatically be notified when solicitation opportunities of company interest, become available. As a registered user you will also have access to respond to bids electronically.

On July 1, 2023, the County transitioned to a new eProcurement solution (OpenGov) for publishing solicitations and receiving vendor responses. Register your account to begin receiving email notifications for the County’s Bid/RFP opportunities. Registration is 100% free for vendors!

Please utilize registration links below to begin receiving email notifications for the County’s solicitation opportunities. THERE IS NO COST FOR VENDORS TO REGISTER


Please register with both Periscope and OpenGov to maximize your opportunity, as the County will be utilizing both systems until we fully transition to OpenGov by the end of the calendar year.
