How can I obtain the information on the process to bid on projects?

In accordance with the Government Code, Design Consultants are selected based on their qualification, and our construction contracts are awarded to the lowest and most responsive bid (i.e. competitive low bid).

We have an on-line Consultant Registration website ( that you can register your firm and this database is used to generate the list of firms to receive RFPs for upcoming projects. In addition, all County contract opportunity in excess of $10,000 are posted on the "County's Doing Business with Us" website (
). This means that the RFP is open to everyone, not just the firms on the list that was generated. In addition, this website also list contract opportunities for all 28 County Departments so you can query any Department you want to.
