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. The Dallas County Commissioners Court has established the Small Business Enterprise Program ("SBE Program") for the purpose of promoting equal Business Enterprise for small businesses.

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 and 350 formal (advertised) solicitations in a fiscal year. These formal bids are normally advertised on Thursdays in the Daily Commercial Record Classified Section under "legal notices." Formal solicitation bid notices are electronically sent to registered vendors meeting the National Institute of Government Purchasing (NIGP) Codes for the procurement opportunity.

Dallas County utilizes an online bid management system, BidSync to post solicitations online. By registering with BidSync, you will automatically be notified when bid opportunities of company interest, become available. As a registered user you will also have access to respond to bids electronically and there is no cost to register. Vendors may also register ( to receive regular notifications of new, modified and awarded solicitations.

Please visit the Purchasing FAQs page of this website for additional information about registering as a County vendor, how to do business with the County, and our new online Bid Management System.

If you would like to make an appointment with Buying Staff, please call our main phone number at: 214-653-7431 and you will be connected to the appropriate staff member. If you have any comments or suggestions please send them to my attention.
