Helpful Hints

Selling to the State Center Community College District is not as difficult as you may envision. Some helpful hints to interested vendors include:

  • Request, complete and return a Vendor Qualification Form.
  • Keep in contact with the Purchasing Department to help identify potential opportunities and to make sure you are on the bid list for the commodities that you sell.
  • Respond to every Bid Invitation even if your response is "No Bid". This tells us that you cannot bid at this time but would like to continue to receive Bid Invitations.
  • Carefully read Invitations to Bid and Requests for Quotation. Ask questions of the Purchasing Department to clear up any doubt.
  • Remember that receiving a purchase order from State Center Community College District carries with it the obligation to supply the ordered goods or services at the agreed-upon price, at the promised time, and without the need for Purchasing's intervention, renegotiation, or continued expediting.
  • Full performance of contractual obligations will help your company earn a favorable evaluation, and present opportunities for further participation in our purchasing program.
