Dear Vendor:

I would like to welcome you to the Dallas County Purchasing Department. Thank you for your desire to do business with Dallas County. Dallas County has a centralized purchasing operation, which requires the release of purchase orders prior to the delivery of supplies or services. The county is not responsible for verbal orders placed by employees outside the Purchasing Department.

Dallas County processes over 12,000 purchase orders in a year and 350 formal (advertised) bids in a year. These formal bids are normally advertised on Mondays in the Daily Commercial Record classified section under legal notices. These bids are also posted on the website. Formal bids or bid notices are mailed to vendors registered with Dallas County to sell those particular services or goods. To obtain a vendor registration form, you may download it from the Dallas County website here. Please complete the vendor registration form submitting your organization's information or updating your organization's information. Please identify the commodities that your organization sells. Please send this information via fax to (214) 653-7878 or mail it to the address at the top of this page. In the future it is anticipated that Dallas County will do electronic bid notifications through Internet e-mail, therefore please indicate your e-mail address on your vendor registration form.

If you would like to make an appointment with a Purchasing Department representative, please call our main telephone number at (214) 653-7431 and you will be connected to the appropriate staff member.
