Contracting Opportunities

The City-Parish invites all qualified businesses to learn about ways to do business with our various departments and agencies. The first step is to register online through the City-Parish Vendor Self-Service (VSS). This system enables vendors to register and manage vendor account information for the purpose of doing business with the City as well as receive notifications of business opportunities. Future enhancements will allow vendors to, review and respond to solicitations. Detailed registration instructions can be found at Munis Self Service

All advertisements, if required, are listed in The Advocate newspaper. You can also learn more about open bid opportunities by visiting our Scheduled Bid Openings page, which is automatically sorted by date. In addition, select solicitations are posted to LaPAC, the State of Louisiana’s central site for solicitations.

All bids for all contracting opportunities are received and should be submitted to the following address, which will be publicly read immediately after the solicitation’s closing date and time at this location:

City Hall
222 Saint Louis Street
8th Floor, Room 826
Baton Rouge, LA 70802

Please note that larger public works construction and maintenance projects are normally issued through the appropriate department and bid packages can be obtained directly through the appropriate division of that department. Purchasing staff will be glad to assist in directing you to the appropriate personnel in the department for those projects not issued through the Purchasing Division. For information related to various projects, including availability of plans and specifications, please call the project contact and phone number listed next to the project under Scheduled Bid Openings.
