Register your business with Los Angeles County


In order to start doing business with DPW, you must first register your business in the Los Angeles County’s Vendor Registration system. The process is quick, easy and beneficial to both the County and business community. The system alerts the County as to the products and services that your business offers. For your benefit, registering as a County vendor offers the following:

  • Online access to County bid opportunities.
  • Automatic Email notification of solicitations for products and services that you select to receive.
  • Placement on Bid Lists generated by County Departments looking for prospective vendors.
  • Visibility to all County Procurement Officers.
  • Opportunity to qualify and enroll in the Local Small Business Enterprise Preference Program.


To learn more about registering as a County vendor, visit the Los Angeles County Vendor Registration website or begin the registration process now by visiting one of the following sites:
