The City of Garden Grove is now using a vendor and bid management system to conveniently assist you in the City’s procurement process. Current and new vendors that would like to receive notification of bid opportunities from the City of Garden Grove must register online. This system requires all vendors to have e-mail capability to download solicitations, documents, addendums, and award information. Both formal and informal solicitations will be processed through the online bidding system but only informal bids will be accepted electronically.
Unless otherwise instructed, all deliveries should be made to the Central Stores Warehouse, located at:
13802 Newhope Street
Garden Grove, CA 92843
Delivery hours are Monday thru Thursday only from 6:30am-2:30pm.
The City actively encourages participation from all vendors. Vendors are encouraged to make appointments prior to visiting the Purchasing Division/Central Stores Warehouse. Courtesy visits are not encouraged, as staff may not be available due to daily responsibilities. Appointments ensure that staff is available and prepared to speak with you about your product or service. All appointments are to be scheduled with the Purchasing Division directly at (714) 741-5052.
To ensure prompt payment, all invoices should include the purchase order number, if applicable. Please submit all invoices to the City’s Accounts Payable Department using one of the following two methods:
- Email and electronic version of your invoice to: firstname.lastname@example.org
