Bid Announcement Instructions

The City of Santa Barbara (“City”) is now conducting all of its bid and proposal solicitations online through PlanetBids™.  Businesses should register now for the commodities they are interested in bidding on or selling, or as an emergency vendor.  The City is only accepting electronic bids.  The initial bidders’ list will be developed from registered vendors.

The public can access and view active bids by clicking “Bid Opportunities” using the link above or below. In order to view the bidding documents, you must be registered with PlanetBids. Once a bid is closed, all bidding documents are locked and are not viewable via PlanetBids.

1.    Click here      
2.    Click on “Vendor Registration”
3.    Complete the form by navigating through the different tabs and submit.

Once registered, you are able to begin utilizing the full benefits of the system and maintain your profile at any time by revisiting the same site above.   If you have any technical issues registering, contact 818-992-1771.  For general questions on the new eBidding system, contact the Purchasing Department at 805-564-5349.
