The Purchasing Department for the Pinellas County Board of County Commissioners uses DemandStar.com for our vendor application, formal Invitation to Bid, and Request for Proposal notifications and vendor management distribution services.
Vendors must register with Onvia DemandStar at www.demandstar.com.
DemandStar is a self-maintained vendor registration system. Based on the commodities you register with you will receive notifications of bidding opportunities. Even though you may have registered with us in the past you must re-register in the DemandStar system or you will no longer receive notifications of bidding opportunities.
Vendors can register for the Free Agency Program to receive notifications and to download solicitations at a cost. If you would like to subscribe for more than one agency Onvia DemandStar offers additional programs for a fee.
Pinellas County is utilizing an FTPS site to post Construction invitation to bid documents due to the large size of files.
To download Construction plans and specifications, please visit the site
NOTICE FOR CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS: You should also go to Demandstar to download the solicitation notice associated with the construction project to ensure you are added to the planholders list which notifies you about other postings, such as addenda issued.
Due to the scope of projects requiring mandatory prebid conferences, bidders must attend the conference to have their bids considered responsive.
Pinellas County Purchasing makes every effort to keep information current. This site is provided for the convenience of our vendors and no guarantee as to accuracy or completeness of the information can be made by the County.
It remains the sole responsibility of the vendor to ensure utilization of the most current information when responding to Pinellas County solicitations, inclusive of Addenda issued. Failure to do so may result in bid being considered non-responsive or in lowering the rating of a firm's proposal.
Tabulations will be posted after 30 days of bid opening to comply with Florida Statute 119.071
