Multnomah County is committed to providing equal opportunity and encourages Minority, Women, Service Disabled Veteran, Disadvantaged Business Enterprise, and Emerging Small Business (M/W/SDV/DBE/ESB) or State Certified firms to compete for contracting opportunities. Periodic workshops and presentations on "How to Do Business with the County" are designed to provide assistance, advice on marketing, and Bid/RFP/Quote procedures. The County's Sustainable Purchasing and Social Equity policy guides the efforts of County staff in providing goods and services in a sustainable and socially responsible manner. Firms must be certified with COBID (Certification Office for Business Inclusion & Diversity)
to be eligible to get solicitations for Public Works projects under that program. State Certified firms are included in quotation opportunities and are given fair and equal consideration for contract awards.
We are providing a one-stop place for all of the forms and instructions to all of our programs on this page. If you cannot find what you are looking for below, please let us know.
