Vendor/MBE Registration

Prince George's County, Maryland, publicly advertises its solicitations for bids and proposals in newspapers of general circulation within Prince George's County and by providing notice to selected vendors on our bidders list thereby satisfying its legal "public notice" requirements. In addition, the County maintains a 24-hour Business Opportunities "Hot Line" where businesses may obtain information on current contract opportunities by calling: (301) 883-6128.

As a courtesy to businesses who have requested individual notifications of contracting opportunities, the County maintains an automated "Bidders List." The County sends a solicitation notice to those whose names appear on the automated "Bidders List" under the class code for the item being procured. Copies of bids are made available upon receipt of the applicable bid fee. The County does not however contract with Brokers unless brokering is determined by the County to be standard practice in the applicable industry.

In order to take advantage of the Prince George's County Minority Business Program, a firm must be certified by the Prince George's County Minority Business Development Division. Instructions for becoming a Prince George's County Certified Minority Business Enterprise are provided here.

To be placed on the County's "Bidder's List", you must complete the Vendor/MBE Registration Form, Company Data Form and Vendor Commodity and Service Information Form.

After registration, vendors who fail to respond to bids on the same commodity for three successive bid openings, may be automatically removed from the Bidder's Mailing List for that commodity without prior notification.
