The San Diego County Water Authority solicits competitive proposals and bids for a variety of goods and services, affording interested vendors a wide variety of opportunities to do business with the Water Authority.
The COVID-19 pandemic has had many negative impacts on our economy as businesses have been closed and await reopening in accordance with national, state and county regulations. As this phased reopening occurs over the coming months, the Water Authority and its member agencies, along with cities and other public agencies continue to issue requests for proposals and bids, as their budgets allow, in order to continue providing essential services to the public.
If your company is interested in doing business with the Water Authority, following a few simple steps will help you begin to position your company to win a piece of the Water Authority contracting pie:
- Review goods and services for which the Water Authority typically solicits competitive proposals and bids.
- Register your company on The Network, the Water Authority's online vendor registration system.
- View current and upcoming contracting opportunities.
In addition to tens of millions of dollars in contracting opportunities available at the Water Authority each year, there are billions of dollars of opportunities at other public agencies in San Diego County.
Additionally, the Procurement Technical Assistance Center and Small Business Development Center provide counseling, resources and trainings to help small businesses grow and develop, some available at no cost through federal, state and local funding.
