Electronic Vendor Database
The City of Plano utilizes an electronic vendor database for notification of bid / quote opportunities exceeding $3,000. The system officially used by the City is BidSync.
Vendor Sign-Up Vendor sign-up and utilization of the system is at no cost to vendors for any City of Plano bid / quote. The City has elected to fund an annual lease fee to BidSync, and therefore eliminate all vendor fees on standard, one-time bids and quotes. In other words, it is free to you, the vendor.
