Q: "How do we get on your bidders' list?"
A: Request For Proposals (RFPs) and Invitation To Bids (ITBs) advertised in the Reading Newspaper are published in this web site. Bidders can sign up on the County's website to receive e-alerts, which send an email notification to the end user party that an RFP or ITB has been posted in which it provides a direct link to the County's website so that it can be downloaded or will provide instructions for accessing through a hosted site. In addition it provides potential proposers and bidders with notification of postings of addendums / amendments to RFPs and ITBs.

Q: "How do I participate in Request for Quotes?"
Q: "Someone from County department X (i.e. a department other than Purchasing), told me to complete this job. Now that I've completed the work, how do I go about receiving payment?"
A: Vendors who provide goods or perform services without first obtaining evidence of proper purchase authorization (a contract or a purchase order) run the risk of not being paid.
