Doing Business With Purchasing
Our goal is to make the purchasing process easier for you while concurrently maintaining the integrity of the process, that is, to facilitate the acquisition of the best product or service at the least cost to the taxpayer.
The City of Fontana has implemented an online purchasing management system. This system allows you to register online to bid for service and commodities. After winning a bid you will electronically register as a Vendor to submit invoices and find information.
How to Bid, Vendor Registration, Guidelines
The following information outlines the purchasing operations, procedures, and policies for the City of Fontana:
Vendor Self Service (VSS) Portal
Current City Vendors should register online to access/manage their profile information by way of the City’s Vendor Self Service (VSS) portal. Use this web-based tool to update contact information, view existing Purchase Orders, contracts, payment history and submit invoices to the city. To be approved, all vendors must submit an IRS W-9 Form via the "Upload Attachments" section of the portal.
