Interested in Becoming an SAPC Contracted Provider?
To become a contracted provider, please follow these instructions:
Step One: Register with the County.
The majority of contractors that have been awarded a County contract have participated in a County competitive selection
process. Providers interested in participating in the competitive selection process to become a County contractor must
register with the County by going to
http://portal.lacounty.gov/wps/portal/lac/home. Once here, go to the right hand side and arrow down to “Hot
Topics in LA County.” Click on “Doing Business with LA County.” New providers should then click on “Vendor Registration
Information” to become a registered vendor and to get on the County’s mailing list of providers.
Step Two: Review Requests for Proposals (RFPs).
Once registered with the County, providers, should click on “Purchasing and Contract Opportunities”, then click on
“clicking here” then click on “View Open” bids. To view open Requests for Proposals (RFPs) in LA County, click on
“Bid Title, Number, and Description” in the left column. From this list, providers can select which contracts they
wish to compete for. Note that it is a provider’s responsibility to go to the web site from time to time (e.g., once a month)
to see available contract opportunities. Many County departments maintain websites strictly for contract opportunities
within their County department; these opportunities are linked to the County’s main website.
The Department of Public Health’s (DPH) website may be reached by going to:
To view DPH bids, go to the left hand side arrow down to “Public Health Programs”, click on “Select A Program Here”, click on “Contracts and Grants”, go to “Open Solicitations for Public Health” and click on “Request for Proposal”.
Agencies may also register as vendors on this page.
Step Three: Register with SAPC.
Agencies MUST be registered with the County to receive a contract from any County agency. It is also recommended that
agencies sign up for the SAPC’s bidders’ list. Agencies on this list will be notified of any new RFPs. For general questions about RFPs
and the RFP process, please contact Gary Izumi at (626) 299-4513, email:
